I designed one a couple of years ago and a few of us built and flew them. They were great! Here's a couple of pics.

Yours is looking good!

I really like these planes. Nice job!

I am getting ready to build my second large foam plane. The first was a CAP3Dx 3D plane that was designed by theradioflyer. My second might be this plane! Can someone please send me the plans or tell me where I can find the plans to build this plane with the landing gear?

Have a video of your planes flying? [link=http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/m_8757744/mpage_1/key_/tm.htm]Here's a link to theradioflyers Cap3Dx build[/link] if anyone is interested.


Peace,

Zim

Freddy, how the heck are those aileron servos mounted to the wing?? Looks like maybe a zip tie?

Two cardboard sheets,from the dollar store,F4F three views, there are no plans. Made from the mind. Servo mounts for the wings, are from DW Foamy, you can make them out of plywood if you want to take the time. I'm downloading photos , hopefulyy they can help you. I get much comment at the field, of it's looks, and how well it flies. Paint is acrylic from Wal-Mart. Decals are from Major Decals. Motor isZS3014-14. Speed Control is Atlas LBECBrushless ECC< battery is HYPERION4S-14.8 V-25C-2500MAH, prop 13.6 or 13.4.Any other questions let me know. Ps: 9MM Depron

Right on, thanks. Just got home from a long drive and will be starting my "building of something" today!!! lol

Foam planes are so great, very forgiving on the build side and hard to screw up so bad that they wont fly. With a big enough power plant, I think we could fly a foam block?

Nice work!
