Default will it fly?

Do you think this thing will fly ok? Its made of foam, 1100 wide by 900 long, powered by 35 size motor. Only has elevator control for up/down, left/right. I'm not sure how to balance it. Any tips?

I don't know what your weight is or what the wing loading is, but it should fly. If you look in Hippo's Foamfly.com website in the 'photo gallery' under 'glen's plans' (http://www.foamfly.com/gallery/view_...albumName=Glen), you will find several similar designs.

You can also search R/C Groups (http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/index.php?topic=ezone) for 'Pizza Box Flier' or 'PBF' and find other similar designs (square instead of round). Most of these are rumored to fly, some better than others.

Default UFO

Talk to Wingspan 99. He is a genius with flying disks. I do remember that he said that his balanced at 27% back from leading edge and it flew great. Give it a try and let us all know.
