Zim~

Oh yeah, I've been back in Washington... Cool on the Crawler though ! I bet down there at Avilla beach would be just to fun. [8D] And ya definately can't complain on the eye candy down there either ! Yeah, I'am just lurking right now... Maybe this Winter I'll try and build one since now Jay has logged in the info on how to do so here. Very nice of him...


Jay ~

EXCELLENT pics without a doubt... Dang, you make it look so easy though ! Eh...! I'am with Zim, and would either have that thing in pieces in that tight cramped space, or in a tree, or buzzing my head giving me a haircut... !

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for the compliments Jeff! I hope you put one of these together. It's super cheap and lets you get down and dirty with no worries. Great practice without putting the MFX in harms way.

Blessings,

Jay

Hey guys....

I sent Pknapp the original drawing that Jay sent to me. It has all the dimensions and such, but If there are any other plans, please send them along to him.

Since i am here~ My plane has never flown better! I still fly the Toxic Pinkie every chance I get. I never have a day of flying that people don't walk up to me wondering how a plane that big flies so slow and low and then so freaking fast...i wish more people would build one of these. Might be the size that scares them away?? Don't let it scare you peeps. It flies like it was little but with a big ***** heart! My Power 10 size motor takes this thing straight up going at least 30MPH...seriously!

On another note~ I am almost finished with my next Pink plane. I am building the Funder and Lightning. I will post a pic when I can steal the camera from the wifey! Its gonna be cool!!

peace

Z

Wanted to post a few pictures of the newest Pinkie that i am building. Have not seen anyone building one of these out of the Foamular, should be interesting. Who knows, we might even start a revolution! If anyone here knows if the Kline-Fogleman airfoil(3rd picture for reference) would work better if tapered flush to the carbon fiber arrow, please interject. I would rather it had a taper, but if it would work best left as-is(90 degree angle), i would leave it. I was going to post this in the Funder and Lightning thread as well for thoughts....

All comments welcome, except "Pink Jokes"...lol j/k

Thanks for looking

Z

carbon fiber arrows were used for spar and rear of fuse(if that's what you can call it).

Very nice!!!!! Don't worry about the 49" wing span. I busted The Toxic Pinkie in 3 pieces and ended up cutting her down to 48". She still flies great! Cant wait to see another completed CaPinkie! You fly in the snow or you going to wait until next spring? lol

Thanks for sharing

Z,
Thanks for emailing the plans and helping Phil out, that's super cool. The Funder and Lightning looks AWESOME! Nice job on that build. Quite a unique design. You have to love this pink foam!

God Bless Y'all!

I am sure its somewhere in this thread... But what is everyones AUW of the 51" cap with pink foam. I am really more interested in the the airframe weight. Or at least the airframe without the motor and battery...

I am also trying to think of a good way to make the wing removable (one piece or two...) as I am thinking of scaling it up to about 60 to 70" wing span. Any thoughts?

Atta boy! A 70" version would be cool! I don't have a weight for just the airframe, but the original weight of the Jays plane was 2 pounds 6oz.

Once again I got too happy with my plane and well, broke it. I think a better term for what i did to it would be that I shattered it! Last battery, last trick, last everything. When will we ever learn to fly one less battery than we brought to the field? I ALWAYS crash on the last battery...No worries though, because....

If I go with the 70" wing span I will probably put a 3S 4000mah pack with an equivalent motor to spin a 14x7 or so prop. If I can keep it at under 3 - 3.5 lbs it would be a good setup.

Hi , Mine weight in at 15 oz foam ony and 49"WS, I figure it will be atleast 36-38oz ready to fly and that with a 3C , 2200-2500mAh battery, and a 5oz out runner, with the 60-70 WS you may need 4-6C and larger motor as well, my guess it won't be less then 40-50 oz AUW.
2 peices wing are do able if you have a right stuffs . Look at this link you may like to try this one instead.

good luck.

Great link Matk. I'd recommend the extra bracing they show if going to 70"s

Man, a 70"er would be awesome!

Blessings,

I think if comes out under 50oz then an adequately selected motor/prop on 3S will work great, no need to run such high volts when you can draw the amps if needed... My 48" E3D weighs in at about 48oz and with my current setup (Hacker A30-12xl, 14x7 prop and 3s2p Prolite batteries) it hovers at just over half throttle and has a strong pull out. Those are also 4 year old 15C batteries. These slow flying 3D models fly well propped big with low pitch speed.

Hello
Extensive research on the Kline Fogleman airfoil has been done on RC groups. Well worth investigating. There is a P-38 in a similar configuration to the one you have pictured here.
Good Luck to you,
Chet

Way cool Jay...I just put an order in for a motor so i can fly my funder that has been sitting around un-maidened forever. My goal is to have 2 Pinks at the park the next time i go. Toxic pinkie still going strong. Love these planes, so easy and fun...

Thanks for sharing the video, you make flying look so effortless.

Peace,

Hey Z,

Please to post your Funder and lighting pics and videos here when you get her flying, I'd love to see it. I'm thinking it would be a cool project to try[8D]

Hey guys,

Thanks heaps for this idea, I built one last week after discovering the post, here are some pictures. I have to do a bit of a clean up but I just wanted to see if it would fly before I worked on making it to neat.
I'll post a video up of its maiden shortly.
