Breathing new life into an old friend.

Me and my brothers have been flying foamyfactory bipes for a while but they where not as sturdy as I needed to do some of the things we do blenders walls stuff like that. Well below show some pics of my new i and improved bird. We have added wing area alieron size elevator size, rudder size and to do this without bigger servos balancing tabs the bottom wing is also held on better by a peice of tri stock very small to keep the bottom from coming apart. Tell me what you think.

I think that's a lot of surface for a Pico servo to move! Invest in some Pico gearsets.

But hey, if it works...

I run two alieron servos i tore the gears out of them one time It is not easy to fly without alierons or rudder.

I have test flown it and does exelent it will elevator all the way down with no wing rocking. It has an amazing roll rate. It also amazingly flat spins as soon as i breath on the sticks very wild.
