Foam profile Beagle Pup


My father owned the fullsize Beagle Pup for over 30 years. This is one of only a couple ever imported into the U.S. I thought I would try and make a small profile version of it. Flys a lot better than I ever expected.

I found the line drawings for the beagle online and enlarged them until aprox the same size as my Fancy Foam Sukhoi. I also copied the Fancy Foam full flying elevator. All the radio gear was also borrowed from the Sukhoi.
When I first flew the beagle I noticed that the wings were flexing up and down about 1 inch when pulling positive and negative Gs. I was planing on later adding another spar but the plane actually tracks a lot better than the Sukhoi. I wonder if it is due to the flex. Doesn't seem to have any bad effects. The plane flys great...just flexes a little.
