This plane was built by Dustin Genton and he calls it the Big Guinea because it's a scaled up version of the Guinea Pig design. It's built from dollar tree foam board and paint sticks. It has 4 motors for power running on a 3S 10,000 lipo. It's been flying for about 2 years and it can carry up to 5lbs of payload. In the wind this thing slows down to a crawl and lands at near zero airspeed. It looks like a hoot to fly, you never know what you will see at SEFF.

Not only was this a super cool airplane, he was a super cool guy. Very nice and friendly. I also loved his 3D printed P-38.

Had a blast flying this at SEFF this year, it was the first time I've taken it to an event because of how much room it takes in the truck.
