For now, double click on one, view it, "direct it" to "print it".... then you'll get something... if you run into problems, then ask again.... the biggest question is generally after you double click it, you have several choices.... make sure that ONE CHOICE is "no scale" or "none" or something like that.

If you don't already HAVE pdf [Adobe], it'll tell you that you "need" it... and it's true, you DO need it.... then it'll give you opportunity to download THAT program FREE......................

Go ahead and try it..... try a single page one first so you don't waste ink and paper. [don't tell anybody, but my middle name is "gramps" tooo; ol' fogey here].

[edit; page one post num 15 has the plans that Tony referred to. Tony, I can't get the first one [world plan?] to open..... all the others come up quickly and easily. end of edit]

Good luck.

tony i think i downloaded the world plans okay. only thing the words are small and hard for me to read. i'm not good at flying yet just planning ahead. since kev mentioned it can handle a little more wind i would like to try it someday.

thanks

Gramps, you download the tiled parts plan, tape them together along the lines and then cut out the parts. The World plan is there to give you an overview of how everything goes together. The parts plan (full) is for folk who take the parts plan to a printer or have a plotter.

I printed out the plans just now, and found out something that was sitting in plain site in front of me all this time. I have a HP printer, and in one of the set up tabs for printing, there's an option for printing at less than 100%, any % you choose.

I wanted to reduce the plans to 90%, hoping to liten it a bit, and it came out perfectly reduced by chosing 90%.

I'll make the wing first, and saw/sand the monobloc to size, to set the fuse thickness to fit the reduced cut out in the wing.

Have a rewound Motorolfly motor that puts out 23oz static on a 9050 at 12A, want to give it a home.

Won't be able to start it for a few days, will post some pics when I get going.

Thanks for the plans Tony.

I like that skewer placement in the leading edge Kev, with the U shaped ply slots to align the wing.

Looking forward to flying it!

Hey, make the Pirahana 43 or 44 inches, but notice, he's CELEBRATING the discovery of the 90 pct option on Adobe..................

I just LOVE IT when I can insist on a 38.27 inch wingspan, ha. [that's 89 pct of 43].

thanks paul. lining up the LE's (both relative to each other and the TE's) was my main reason for doing the LE skewer. it add's complexity and time to assembly, but it's worth the effort considering the kind of flying tony designed it for (classic pattern).

your idea sounds good. should be fun with unlimited vertical. keep us posted!

tony thanks again for the blu-baby and pirahana. my daughter saw me trying to download the pirahana plans,and help me. she later came to the field with my grandaughter and saw a friends scratch built epp and hot glue stealth and tells dad we can do this. she likes to do crafts and scrapbooking. back at home i showed her the pirahana and blu baby threads and she tells me lets build the blu baby first sounds easier for you to learn to fly. we went to wal-mart later lookinking for readi-board, trying to plan OUR build. will be following the blu baby and piranaha threads now. want to thank you and everyone else here and on the blu baby side for all the help and info. will definetely have a lot more question when we get started. will keep everyone posted.

thanks
gramps
