Nice plans Gene. How to see more guys fly this one, it's a winner!!!

Did mine out of Cellofoam 88 because I wanteed to try some. It took regular Loctite ca without melting it, tho I hot glued the wings on and epoxied the wings together.

Still trying to fing a stor that sells that bamboo mat for cf replacement that everyone is talking about. The CF I used is more $ than the motor!!!

These would be a blast for streamer combat.

Just took a turn this AM in the street out front, before the winds picked up... OK, it's a winner!

May try some bigger % control surfaces

I built a 24 at 5.3 ounces and a 26 at 5.8 ounces, that's RTF with 3S 350s. Both powered by 20MM, same turns, at 50 watts in. The 26 incher has the edge.

Thanks for posting plans Gene.

I built a depron dart-alike a few days ago. 26 inch span, powered by a small hacker clone. Flew like crap on elevons, so I cut out ailerons and stuck a big fat elevator on the rear. Flew great!
Yes, flew... Took it out in like 50 km/hr winds... More like an RC kite :-)
A hard impact knocked the firewall loose. Don't know if I'll bother fixing or moving onto V2.
Pics possible, if anyone is interested
P.S. No dihedral, either. Fun!

Jer , it is I who must apologize ...Confess I made a profile fuse with opposed skewers , left off the landing gear , and used a skewer/dihedral brace across the top wing center , ala Coarse air... At least I modified in ways that youse' guys came UP with ....felt it was sorta' sticking to the program ,eh ????

Orange is Plasti Kote , odds and ends Flo. orange from the Wal-Mart .. Cheap , and it looks great onderundersidenofderwingentips really far away ... Makes orientation easy ...

Almost as bad as those little soccer brats cluttering up my field all summer long! Although it is fun to do a high 300' pass over the game with a 60" wing when the ball is in play..hehehe

What's worse is people letting their dogs leave land mines in the middle of my landing strip........talk about a crappy landing.

I love this plane!
