I want that glider! It looks like you could easily lose it to a bit of rising air.I dare not take my Playboy up very high. Charles

Jason's Velocity shots show a great combination of a simple design with a great finish that really makes it look a lot more complex a structure than it is. Lovely model - foam gets such a bad rap thanks to all those ugly flat sheet things.

Now - where did I put that drawing of the little known canard version of the Lancaster bomber?

Have you seen the two pics of gliders I added to the first list? Ive just found about 10 more canards in my old MAP plans handbook!

Nice playboy mate I need to build a fuselage for mine for geared electric power.

Derick have you seen the Vickers a few pages back I put up?

Sometimes, one can have too much spare time ...

Would Andy C approve?

And, yes, the wing and tail chords, and the fus side view are pretty close to 'the real thing' - though it was done off a CAD file of a Bee lookalike that's floating around this board. I did change the wing section to a Clark Y - though that is technically from another project that's really coming into Bee-ing. I did make the rudder larger and more 'fitting', though a realworld version might benefit from two verticals out on the mainplane.

It has possibilities... Foamie chuckie anyone?

Canbee


Dereck, What a great idea! I believe that Andy would bee tickled. There are enough canards in this thread to last another lifetime. If we put enough of these canards out there, we could open a new chapter in modeling. Charles

Ga. Goose Fuselage construction


The fuselage is easy and fun to build. Here are some shots of the first side. Charles

FFF Ga Goose Fuse


I cut out the fuse parts and started assembly for the prototype. I have made a few small changes, but so far everything seems to be working out fine. I had to increase the width of the fuse farther forward to accomodate the battery, if we need to use the placement for setting the COG.
I will continue building through this week and post more photos.

Great looking job,RL! What are you using for glue? Will you recalculate the COG with your dimensions? Charles

I think that this would be a very cute canard. I got bored and started fiddling with the cockpit placement, and hit this as the canard ideal...
