The plane that currently has no name. (now named N2) (Like N-squared)


Well, turns out my neighbor wants to learn to fly, according to his wife anyway. But he didnt want to buy a plane because he didnt want to look like he was copying me. So, today, I built him up a trainer from some flying wing EPP wing beds, and some FFF.

It is 46" wingspan, 10" chord and has ailerons, elevator, rudder, a FRIO 10, 10x4.7 prop, Thunder Bird 18 ESC, Electron 6 RX and a 3S 2200 lipo.

I test flew it a bit ago and now I dont wanna give it away!! lol Sure flys nice.

Anyone have a name for it?

The slot is for the battery, the video will be up in a few minutes, just waiting on Youtube to finish uploading.

Plans.... hmmmm.... never done any before. My plans consist of this... well, that looks about right. Now I'll add this... now this... then POOF, its a plane!

I can try to make some plans if you really want though. You'll see by the video that it really flies nice. fast and slow. Its pretty cool IMO.

Yeah, the neighbor will still get this one. He dosnt know it yet though. In fact, he has no idea that I was even building him a plane or that I am going to teach him to fly! Should be a fun day tomorrow.

This one has a span of 44" and a chord of 10". With a weight of 20oz including the 3S 2200 lipo, it seems to do pretty well. Right about the perfect specs for an aileron trainer.

Anyway, there are a couple new videos uploading as we speak of me doing something I shouldnt do with a plane Im giving away! Just remember what date it is and you'll figure it out before you even see it. They will be up in a min, uploading them now.

I used the big smoke bombs they sell at the fireworks stands. They were like $1.50 each or so and are supposed to last 1.5 to 2 min. Well, close enough.

I protected the bottom of the plane with some ply, the stuck some skewers through the fuse and rubber banded the smoke bomb onto it with a little downward angle so it wouldnt burn up the plane.
