Cool

"As the Building Continues"


When I see a plane I like I print out the plans and put them in the "To Build Someday" container. Well this one was next... It is the PT-17 "Stearman" with a 48 inch wingspan. Still lots to do but good progress for today. I cut out the plans, traced them to the DT foamboard and then cut it out and assembled it to the point you see in the Pictures. One like this was given to the guys at Flite Test and they posted the link to the plans...

I know... I know...


Paint going on... I know... I broke my own rule... No paint until it flies and proves to me it wants to stay around for awhile but it just needed color. What do you think?

Good News!!! It's Alive!!! Finally finished the electronics on it and had it out in the driveway doing taxi testing and it looks good. I even hopped it of the ground momentarily but it needs to be balanced yet. The motor/ESC/Prop combo looks like it will have more than enough power for it to fly.
