All this talk of the bump got me excited enough to build one. I was tired of the 'depron white' look so I took a break and made some printed tissue graphics (a first for me). Once I get this little beastie together, I'll show it off

Who'd have thought such a silly little plane would get such glamor....I smell a cookup...

Hey Jef
Come on now!!! that's rather strong language --- this "silly little plane" is a good and timely lesson on how to set up an effective RC micro aircraft from scratch!!!. With all the accent falling on the latest micro miracle equipment (superb as it is) the art of designing even the simplest stable airframe is a strange land to many beginners?
Perhaps your comments might have been a tiny bit tongue in cheek??

Silly!? SILLY!?

Don't you know it took me almost 5 minutes to design that model. Is there no respect in the world today?

When I was young we would work 22 hours a day in the coal mines with no light and no lunch and if we scrimped and saved and only had cold, wet cardboard for supper then we could begin to dream of acquiring such a wonderful model after only 30 years.

Hah. That is nothing.
When I was young we had to get up 1/2 hour before we got to sleep and work all day long at the bottom of the lake removing pellets that the fish could eat and die from drowning. When we got home all we had for dinners where the cold slimy stones our dad had stolen from the farmer he worked for. After dinner we had to throw them up again in a bucket wich our old grandmother on our fathers side made us clothes from.

But try to tell the kids today about hard work.

Cheers

And, we loved it.
Our shoes were just old crusts of bread. When we were lucky enough to have bread! And we loved it!

Edit: We had 3 clear television stations and 2 "snowy" ones AND we were the remote. AND we loved it!

Silly is good, no?

After the printed tissue job on the Bump, I'm sure you guys will think 'silly'.
Thanks for any easy to build, robust, good flying model. Five minutes, eh?

hard life


Hey michael":

What the heck is tracle? Never heard of it on this side of the pond.

We were rich, we lived in a house with an inside toilet. My kids thought we were deprived because we didn't have a hot tub and pool

Not "tracle" but "treacle". You Colonials would probably call it syrup. Here it is extracted from treacle mines.

If you are using Morse Code please slow down to about 15 wpm because it is a long time since I got my license. Can't read the 25 wpm anymore. Besides I'm old LOL

So here's the printed BUMP. It's tubby, it's flashy, it does not fly.
I'll need to scale this down a bit since this came to a whopping 35g (That's a MORE THAN WHOLE OUNCE!)

Test flights yeild an amusing thud, not even a powered glide
