I bet it flies like Ken Willard's Top Dawg. Similar size, 15 powered, flat bottom airfoil.

Hi,

Don't want to but in, but here is my QUICKIE BIPE Electric that I have been building for the last few weeks. Wings are hollow, built with ribs and 1/20 Balsa sheeting. Motor is a 35-36-1000, battery is 2200 mAmp 11.1 Li-Poly. Total weight without battery is 22 ounces. Plan to cover it with White lite span and trim with Red. I have Macula Degeneration in both eyes, Loss of Central Vision and some Color Loss. So far, I have had 64 hypo shots into the eyeballs, but I can still see to drive and see White and Red colors. Can't see Yellow worth a darn, had to sell my 3 CUBs and several other models before I crashed them. Now I fly Big And Slow models.

After I finish my Quickie Bipe, Maybe someone else will fly this one for me if it's too fast.

I like your Bipe! Sounds incredibly light, 1/20 sheeting has to help. Post pics when it's finished, please.
