Perhaps this will allow me to use the 1500 lipos without the CC25 cutting out. I'll have to wait until next weekend to give it the flight tests.

On a side note, has anyone tried the Tib with 3mm depron vs 6? I wonder how much a weight savings there'd be and how strong the structure would be.
That's a good's not so big that it can't be made from 3mm for the wings at least...need lots of rigging to get it to stiffen up but thst sure would shave off about 35-50%...don't you think so as well..?

I LOVE what you've done with your Tiburon Bipe. Is it full size from the plans? What size Depron did you use. I LIKE IT!!!

You mentioned a Mini Tiburon was availble at 3D Foamy. I couldn't find any mention of it there. Do you have a direct link?

Thanks Kenjiyama. Looks like I'll need to order some 3mil and try to duplicate your modifications. I really like the looks, it'll be easier to add landing gear too, and it should be lighter than my current 6mil Tib. Did you use any carbon fiber spars or just the CF braces shown?

That is too cool! I have bounced around the idea of a full fuse Tiburon, but never got around to it. Nice work! I am currently working on some full fuse ideas for 3D Foamy. They will have G-force wings, built up fuselages, vacum formed cowls and canopys! Preliminary tests show that you can build the full fuse lighter and stronger than the "shocked" fuse. Plus you get to hide all of the electronics!
Good work!


Levi sent me 30 of the mini-Tiburon Bipe kits for the Perry, GA show. I still have a couple of them left. Not sure what the hold up is releasing them on the website. He sold a bunch of them at the WRAM show. Cost is $35.00
