new jet


Hi guys.
First time posting.
Ive been building foam board planes for a few months now.
Im very suprised at how strong it is .
I finished a new jet tonight to replace the F ugly jet.
The f ugly flew good but was a little over powered.
The new one is ten inches bigger both ways and i think it should be a better fit for the edf fan and motor I have .
I mounted a rear facing cam on it so if it flies it should make a cool vid. Wish me luck.
If anyone has ant good ideas for a name send em over ,cant call this the f ugly & so far no good names popping in my head.
Happy flying folks

Thanks for posting- New designs are always useful - It's a good idea to post a pic of the finished product if you have one - it will generate more interest.

I just noticed I have no way of opening RAR files and that first one came out at 1kb for me.

Tons and tons of great knowledge here and peeps that will bend over backwards damn near to help out a fellow flyer.

Don't forget to keep an eye on the classified section!

Runway is almost dry, you should come play in the dirt

Maybe BoC or FLB will stop by and check out your build.
Those 2 guys are definitely my top 2 building mentors!!

Dirt, repost your pics as .jpgs that is the typical format for still pics. Inquiring minds want to see your bird!

AR, I did just go to your blog - your story sounds a lot like me. Visited a club, but figured I could go it "my way". Now 17 (!?) Yrs later I'm a couple hundred scratchbuilds in, and like you built my own "aerodrome"! Hard to beat walking out back whenever the wind is decent. Ok, now back to DF's plane, when he gets pics up. . .
