Thanks man please build one and fly it. It maybe costs $25 to build it. It flys amazing and it holds a ton of weight mine flew with 2 thunderpower 4800mah 65c battery's and a gopro and all my fpv gear on it, and it still could use a tad more nose weight. If you put 2 5000mah 3s packs on it with the gopro on the front it should fly perfect. Its also so huge that you can fly it LOS super far away bc you can see it so easy. Like my second video the 14min one I flew all LOS and I flew really far away in that video as you can see I'm sure. That video had a lil bit of vibes at time bc it was really windy that day.

the back of the elevator. I also does very tight loops!!! But for learning
3D It does help to have a longer fuse, with a slightly musher feel. It's
lots of fun to compair the two. Mabe I will post both plans soon
Also the main wing does get a wing spar. I used a 3.5x0.8mm flat carbon
bar that works great.
I put the aleron control under fuse to make top look cleaner, but they
kinda get in the way of the batt,speedcontrol,and reciver, so I recomend
just putin them on top.
This is my first plan posting and a lot of the info is vage, So experianced
builders will have an easyer time till I get all the info add to plans.
Does anyone know where there is a latest revision of this Extra Chubby Plans?
Thanks

B2 Stealth Bomber KFm2 53" Includes 8 Servos


Two new build threads. The B2 has 8 servos but you can eliminate 4 of them and
just fix the drag rudders so they are manually adjustable.
The drag rudders stabilize yaw and are not needed to turn but are needed to stabilize the wing.

This is a very easy build with or without wheels.
There is a center bottom "handle" that you can use for a hand launch.
Just watch the prop and your fingers.

Wow!!! you guys are amazing!!!!


Hi Guys, just found this thread a few days ago, and all I can say is WOW!! you are all amazing and some of the most creative modelers around. You guys are proof that scratch building is not a dead art form, you have taken it to it's next level. I have been modeling for about 22 years, I have worked in the RC industry for several different companies, and you guys put most of them to shame with your creativity, and skills. I too like to scratch build and after reading this entire thread I am hoping that some one here can help me with some plans for a Scimitar design
plan that I can down load and print then scale to the size I want. I have been on the Scimitar thread on RCgroups, but I was hoping you guys had some ideas for me. I want to build a profile Scimitar and just need an outline for layout and CG placement, I have built several dozen foam indoor models, one of my own designs I call it Stained Glass was very successful it is 5 oz,all up and is an F3P style plane that does it all and very slow, I will try to post some pics.
So Thanks in advance for any help.
