Hey upperking:
Am i mistaken or is that an airmadillo wing & two airmadillo fusealages? If it is are you getting flutter @ high speeds? I had a 40 size wing from them & built the fuse from an old aluminum lawn chiar, I used a k&b 65 on it & it fluttered terribly @ HIGH SPEEDS.

nope no flutter
i put piano wire through the channels in the wings to prevent that..
it sure makes allot of wind noise and whistling as it screams through the sky!!

yes it is a armidillo twin but i have the one and only Kruzer wing that is 6-8 inches smaller then the stock wing..the thing is really sposed to have twin 25s or 32s hehe
i wanted either 61s or 90s but settled for the 50s since it about matches the same power as them and its lighter.

Hey Upperking,

Nice plane! I would love to see that fly. How far apart are the booms? Is one boom shorter so the prop arcs overlap like the full scale Boomerang which I think is a Rutan design. Any idea of what speed you are getting?
