rcflydad: (others are welcome too)

First off, building light is the answer, 'light is might'. Check out the SST videos. My inspiration to make a light Boomer that would 'rock n' roll' when only Whipits can be flown.

Your answers...........

*Lam film is 1.7, I think.
* 1.9# EPP
* Single PW51 outie template
*Elevons/vert stab are tapped 2mm Depron
*.4 Styrene for cover (not ABS) from a HS that sells train stuff.
* hinge tape is Duck brand HD crystal clear.
* Have a DX6 and an Orange T6, so use both the R410 DSMX and the R610V2 DSM2 RXs.
* The flat battery is a Team Losi from HS a few years ago.

Use whatever you have and increase the wing area if necessary to keep the loading down to - 3.0 oz. per sq. ft.

Hope this helps............... Fly Small, Have a Ball

A tuning session at the maiden yesterday of my latest at our 'every Monday of the year' float flying............... the OddBall, flew great.

The NutBall even makes a good sloper if you need to turn out a flying machine in 1/2 hour cause all your birds are smashed.

Here's a 28" span Boomer Lite with a KF airfoil at 2.4 ounces. Flies amazingly well in light lift/wind.

Add 2.5 ounces of lead to a 4.5 ounce Boomer in 40 kph winds and what do you get? An amazing afternoon of ballistic flying.

Hey Frank,

I thought I would post a drawing I made of your fantastic servo plug power/charge invention.

A quick but probably dumb question
Is there a way of using a Y lead in the above arrangement as I tend to use RX packs which already have the + and - servo plugs to the rx in place?
