RE: Here's A Simple & FREE First Foam Build Plan! (Part 2)

Here, I dug up a few pics of the Big Red One with the 6 foot wingspan. The antifreeze bottle in the picture is for scale. Used the standard 2200ma 3 cell lipo for it and as said I think a HXT3536...

RE: Here's A Simple & FREE First Foam Build Plan! (Part 2)

Forgot, you asked how big it can be scaled? I built one with a 6 foot wingspan and it flew for one maiden but crashed at the end due to severe trim issues. Search for "Big Red One" or something like...

Hi all and nice to hear from everybody. Here's hoping Saucer Guy or Fisher chime in sometime. Miss gabbing with them and hope all is well for them too.

Thanks for the search tips. Will try that....

RE: Here's A Simple & FREE First Foam Build Plan! (Part 2)

While I'm thinking of it, the last version of the dual boomer I posted here, red with black straps, is still intact and in flying condition. Last time I had it out though about a year or so ago it...

RE: Here's A Simple & FREE First Foam Build Plan! (Part 2)

Nice to hear from ya. Yes, it's a nice design for sure and very unique in it's ability to grab the air and turn on a dime and such even at low speeds.

Hey, by the way, tried to PM Saucer man and...

RE: Here's A Simple & FREE First Foam Build Plan! (Part 2)

Hey all, been a while since I've logged in. Other hobbies have kept me out of RC for the last year or so, but with spring am looking to scratch that itch again here. Hope all is well with you guys....

RE: Here's A Simple & FREE First Foam Build Plan! (Part 2)

Well, thought all was well for the finger. I have been able to use it digging in the dirt and such for a while now. There was a bit of bone sticking out the end where the dead tip have pealed away...

RE: Here's A Simple & FREE First Foam Build Plan! (Part 2)

Thanks for all the support. Still typing with one hand but looks like I get to keep the finger tip. Stitches are out. It turned black on me but doc said that will peal off like a scab and that it...

Terry, great motor. it'll be a fast bird, or prop it for torque. that motor will do either. i'd go for torque. i think it will swing a 9 o 10" prop.

Saucerguy, great looking plane! Big enough ailerons and low wing loading to be a 3D plane if you put a big prop on it, though the tail controls might have to be bigger.

RE: Here's A Simple & FREE First Foam Build Plan! (Part 2)

Sorry I haven't been posting lately. About a month ago i cut a good half inch or so of my finger tip off on my middle finger in a snow blower. Doc stitched it back on but still don't know if i get to...

I'll be starting the build for the EDF Hotliner style plane later today I think. Will have some pictures when progress is made.

Thanks guys. What really burns me about the whole thing is that my uncle had me doing all kinds of errands for him in the last few years leading up to his death. Cutting his lawn, snowblowing the...

I know what you mean about the holidays. I don't care for them anyway but this year in particular wasn't fun. Long story short I've got two brothers and two sisters. My uncle passed away this past...

RE: Here's A Simple & FREE First Foam Build Plan! (Part 2)

Thanks. Since it's my own design it shouldn't have any kit version of it, but I know what you mean. The wing has two carbon arrow shafts joined at the center sunk into it so it can more than handle...

RE: Here's A Simple & FREE First Foam Build Plan! (Part 2)

By the way, the pic makes the wing look wavey but it's not. Something about the way this website processes the picture for expansion when you click on it makes the thing look like it has ripples in...

Well said about the thread's intent and sharing life's little topics of interest. Yes, drinking wine with a lot of live yeast in it will keep you running to the bathroom for sure. We plan to do our...

RE: Here's A Simple & FREE First Foam Build Plan! (Part 2)

Those pics were kind'a hard to see the plane in, so here's a much better one. It maidened yesterday and flew great without a hitch, just needing some trimming on the radio, rates adjustment, and the...

RE: Here's A Simple & FREE First Foam Build Plan! (Part 2)

Finished up my stick glider, which I’m calling the Yellow Jacket because of the color scheme. It’s design and wing falls somewhere in between a glider and a Slow Stick/Slow-V type plane. I’m...

Hey Saucerguy, take my advice...After sampling both batches of our wine right after fermentation was done they were darn nasty. It's amazing how much the taste improves after only a few weeks to a...

RE: Here's A Simple & FREE First Foam Build Plan! (Part 2)

Happy to say we just racked from the primary to the carboy yesterday and all seems well. That was about 5 or 6 days of visible fermentation in that the breather was bubbling.

I've ran into a few...

Know what you mean about how things change when you are at the grocery store looking for juice through the eyes of a wine maker. It can be pasteruized, it can be filtered, but it can't have any...

RE: Here's A Simple & FREE First Foam Build Plan! (Part 2)

I would figure that would work fine, so long as you kept the hot wire temperture low enough to melt the foam but not dig into your formers, or at least try to move fast. An alternative would be to...

RE: Here's A Simple & FREE First Foam Build Plan! (Part 2)

There was/is a great thread on RCGroups about showing off your scratch built foam motorized gliders. One of the planes that really caught my fancy was this one a guy dreamed up and built in the pics...
