That's pretty interesting, Jake. We've used Guillows biplane gliders for a friendly 'cheapest airframe' rivalry, and they worked. Chuck even has a 4-motor B-17 he flies. We used different gear but the idea was the same.

I like you pull-pull control in picture #2; that is very neat set up. What sort of gear did you hack for this?

I wonder if you will want to move the gear forward some. The wings should be as close to the nose as possible to give a longer tail moment, and that LiPoly will pretty light.

Keep us posted when you are ready to fly it...

Mike, the pull pull system is made from plastic, tin and the magnet from my microsizer. the coils are homemade I got instructions from [link=http://geocities.com/pfabersac/coil]http://geocities.com/pfabersac/coil[/link].html the only thing I did differently is I used wire from a small motor, it worked great! the motor/prop is from an e-charger free flight plane. all radio gear is from a Hobbico Microsizer r/c car, although any micro car will work.

has any one made a bit-plane using a twin motor car, i ve seen these cars which can do stunts with a rotating front axel so it has two motors, seen for about £7 in England??. It seems to make a good power system, as i am currently working on one but not sure if any one elese has.
