I put some glue on this and then go do that other stuff. Come back later put on some more glue and go do other stuff.... again and yet again. When one plane is done the next one moves to the front of the queue!

Jerry, once I start on a build I usually cant wait to get it finished so I tend to work on it most days for hours at a time ... but then I don't have much else to do now I'm retired ... saying that, I did loose my mojo there for a while and I guess if circumstances change it will happen again

Tony,

On that one I took the early 60's Goldberg Falcoone 56 and
made it into a Foamy. I still had my plans left from as build in 1968-9.
It was my first 4 channel plane while in the USAF in Tahk Li Thailand.

I did the Foamy version, Falclone 60, back in 2010~ time and used it as
a trainer when I lived out in Washington State.
It still survives here in Indiana now and it's been used as an FPV ship lately.
Of course I cheated by laminating Ply on the inside of the Fuse from the LG to the MM.

Jerry got one and did a NICE job building his and added those super LED light displays.
My wing is build up from Foam sheeting and foam Ribs and twin CF spars.
Totally Taped covering on mine.

Yes! I just stuck the LED strip to the spar. Port & starboard lights!
Not visible in the picture is a row of LEDS along each bottom side of the nose to help with orientation and landing.
It is a very docile 'floater' with a .25 size PowerUp and 80A esc on 4 cells.

Friend of mine brought round a plan from an old balsa kit so and going to convert it to electric and foam

Anyone remember it ... Mach2 ... its a foam delta prop in slot designed by Ray Sherburn and the kit was put out by some American company ... it was supposed to fly very well

It was originally designed for a 45 - 51 2 stroke motor ... any ideas what it would need to power this one ? unusual (I thought) in that it has elevator and ailerons

Its quite a bib beast with a wing span of 1040mm and its 1200 mm long

OK, I've gone ahead and created another cutting file using Tony's layout
on 6mm depron sized sheeting.

I will also be providing 1/16" ply parts sets - Motor mount and 4 horns.

$39 + shipping.

I get it up on my site soon.

Best

LOL ...the guy that lent me the plans said maybe pusher first then if it flies ok then EDF .. once Ive built it.. flown it, its time to move on

Was checking out 90 (or 80 mm ) fans, batteries and EDF's today ... man ... is that an expensive jump .. think I might stick with 70 mm fans and 4s batteries, just need to find a REAL good one thats not too expensive

Both would be nice Lockey . I like the looks of the round fuse and have a 70 mm fan setup . Would be a nice looking and simple build .

Is there a link on how to print out plans in proper size ?
I love the builds you`re coming up with . Big fan here .

To print PDF s you need to read up on the Adobe docs.
Or just head down to your local business office supply place for THEN to print it.
