Looks great Deadguy, I dig the paint scheme.

oly_rcer, can't believe you actually like the sound! It gives me a bloody headache so I've been experimenting with how to reduce the noise.

I don't know if you guys have heard of Q-tip props? I hadn't until I looked into it. The curved over tip design is meant to reduce the turbulent airflow around the tip of the prop and therefore reduce noise.

I tried it out by heating some cheap props and bending over the tips and it definitely works but not as much as I hoped. Plus no one makes a Q-tip propeller in the 6 to 7 inch range so it's DIY time and modifying props so drastically always scares the crap out of me even if I carefully balance them afterwards.

I haven't read every post in this thread, but if nobody has said it yet; I would recommend cutting away some of the foam ahead of (and behind, if you like - but mostly in front of) the propeller to allow better airflow to the prop. This will also cut down on noise.

Never heard of it before. Can you elaborate a bit? Do you print it like printer paper? What type of prep work is needed? How is it applied?

Each item has passed a photo processing program. Adjusting sizes and colors. Photos are printed on non-home printers on self-adhesive PVC film. This technique is used in advertising. For inscriptions and pictures on cars. The foil used is ORAFOL. I cut my pieces with scissors. The foil is thermoplastic. When the foil is heated with a hairdryer, it becomes softened. Using a spatula, he presses to cling to the plane. The film increased the weight of the aircraft by 80 grams.

I used a Photoshop. I'll upload all the files ready to print. I need a little time to finish them. What's on my plane is the working version.
Yesterday, we made several flights with the plane. With a few settings, the plane flies. Planning well. When the throttle increases, the plane crashes the nose. Has any of you had such an airplane behavior? And how is the problem solved?

No. From the beginning. He constantly wants to support the elevators.
I tilted the motor up. There were improvements, but not enough.
