Hi purple thanks for the links - yes those bumps attract me also for some time. They look just beautiful and classic. Curious how an xtwin adaption will fly, but should be ok as its a compact frame to be "levered" trough turns with the xtwin diff thrust gear.

See you

It's nice to know people find my "bumps" attractive!

Mike has outdone himself. How is that for fast prototyping!

I will be carrying the orginal Bump as a kit and probably also some of the derivatives. We might be able to work out a kit that enables you to build different variants but more parts = higher price. As long as I don't know the shipping costs and cost of pushrods etc. I can't give a firm price but it should be well under 10/$20. As usual, us poor islanders have to add the dreaded VAT.

I'm interested in peoples opinions: Would you prefer a kit with pushrods, motor and prop included or just the foam parts?

Best regards,

Michael

I think both. One deal with everything included and one with just the foam? I guess I only want the foam parts, but if you are starting in micro RC buying everything at the same time would be the best. Just mine 5 pennies.

I'd rather just have the foam parts, for a lower price. The hardware we can source elsewhere but having Mike "Smooth as Glass" Glass laser cutting we can not do ourselves.

I'm for seperate stuff- foam parts package, hardware package, motor, props. I think I will just order the original bump. Fond memories, my first plane with the kokam 140 mah/bit gear, and nearly succesfull too... this time around, the cuts may be a bit more accurate

I hear ya! No point in spending time packaging complete kits if people want to select their own hardware. We'll probably add some control horns though - just to be nice

Hi,
Are those score marks on the underside of the wings done with the laser?

Mike, I'd be willing to do some testing if you'd like. All I need is the foam and a reccomendation for the motor.

I'm a n00b when it comes to microflight, so I'm your best bet for testing "trainers" and idiot-proofing!

If you look back at old threads I think you will find that the Bump has already been tested in lots of different sizes. But thanks for the offer

Hi Guys,
I'm glad there is so much interest in Michaels Bump.

That didn't sound right!

Michael plane.

I had a ball last night with the design. It's a great little model!
We'll have to do another design by request night.

Thanks,
Mike

Sorry mcross,
I forgot about your question. Yes,the score marks are done with the laser. It a technique I came up with a few year ago. I incorporate it into all my kits.

I can't wait!

I'll request a 8-10" span SE5a next time. And a Fokker D-7. That would make a cool dogfight duo.

Those are alittle harder to draw in 10 or 15 mins, but we can try!

I have both planes started, but I was saving them for my foam skeleton and tissue method like the Christen Eagle!

I like my WWl models with alittle color

Hi - shurely the flight behaviour of "Bumps" was dicussed in the past in deep. But where? Therfore could anyone give some short (or longer ) statements about its flight style, like: speed - turnability - climb - stalls - spiralling in turns - etc - all important things to be known. Or maybe someone could post a vid or a link to a vid where a "typical" Bump flight can be seen. Thanks in advance

Bye
