McFoamy


I acquired this one from Dave Walter at the Walter RC Park in Saranac Mi, and it was just the cut foam only. It is a West Michigan Park Flyers "McFoamy" but it was one of the early kits which is no longer produced. I finally received the missing wood and carbon fiber parts for it and started the assembly yesterday. Covering is colored packing tape I had leftover... Uncovered assembly Pics are from the WMPF site as I did not take any during the assembly...

mdtang... Maybe an ounce or two. Powering the plane with a 1300 Kva motor spinning a 9x4 prop on a 3 cell lipo so it should be no issue.

Well... The Maiden has happened... It did not go well... It might be repairable... Maybe. I had a control rod for the rudder pull apart in flight and that jammed the rudder over and the rest was history. Found out that this early foam that was used is very brittle. I might be able to repair it with some additional foam added to the nose. No other damage found. Stay tuned... Mudman1959
