Default 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 "Big Red" perhaps and you'll find some pics of it. I think Saucerguy was talking of building one with an even bigger wingspan. You can build as big or as small as you like, just use the right motor for it. My big one I was using a cheap motor for and it pushed it along just fine. Tons of low speed high torque type of deal. Hextronics HXT3536 maybe? Man I'll be surprised if I remember right. I probably posted the info in the build of it somewhere in this thread if not the prior part 1 thread.
