Smart idea for a straight build:



With the one in prop-er's plans you can build it on a flat surface with only the bottom fuselage part including all the carbon bracing.
The top part of the fuselage comes after that...

This is terrific information - thanks. I recently braced a bipe with 1mm carbon cross braces between the wings , and when I tied the braces together with kevlar string , the structure became incredibly rigid. So the wing has no carbon anywhere other than the 1mm cross braces tied together ?

No other carbon needed, just be sure to cover 3/5 of the length of each wing with the crossbrace.

All drawings are back online. Please note that I've drawn downthrust on the vertical fuse. This was a mistake. No downthrust is needed.

All plans have been updated to zero downthrust.

They create vortecies (sp????) that really help to slow the plane by disturbing the air. Great for f3p no so great for 3d.

I'm about to finish my Bling. Looks like it will weigh around 4.5 oz. all up. I've always used 2mm carbon for landing gear legs - anybody tried 1.5 carbon on the landing gear? I figure at 4.5 oz. you could get away with the lighter gear.

Hello everyone,

This is my first design of F3P-A monoplane. I was inspired by Bling bling. The next one is under construction already. I'm gonna make some little changes at the next one.

Hello Petr,

Looking good, any specs of new plane, how does it fly compared with bipe?
I talk with Dieder and Van Der Vecht's about monoplane vs biplane for indoor flying, and i still believe bipe is better. Anyway these small monoplanes is good solution for guys that flying in small gym.

By the way how you making these small holes on ailerons and elevator?

Are you planing to be in Carvin, who else coming from Czech?

Donatas,
