EPP Cutlass Park Flyer


This plane was made from all 9mm EPP. 30 " wing span.

One 4mm Carbon tube in wing and 2 small Carbon fiber cross braces on bottom of the wing. Komodo 17 turn motor, Thunderbird 9, 3-cell 700 Etec and 2 hs-55 servos. 7.7 ozs. with Battery.
I have test flown it already. Flys great slow and fast with good roll rate.
Will have videos after this rain stops.

Adapted from a design by Ken Hill at acesim.com.

I like how slow this plane flies. It looks half flying wing/half delta. What are the measurements? I'd be very interested in plans, too. Thanks.

How did you make the wing? The 9mm EPP I got from Slofly is 35 by 11 3/4.
