Default My Tiny Twin

I recently got some micro gear, so I built this little plane.

1/16" depron, blue foam wing, GWS 2508 props, GWS RX, Pixie 7 ESC, Apogee 2S1P 245 mAh and Blue Arrow 3.6g servos. The wingspan is 16.5" and the RTF weight is 2.7oz.

The maiden flight was today and it flew well, even in a bit of a breeze. It should do better indoors.

Here ity is. It's not very detailed, but it's a pretty simple build.

EDIT:
RCU resized the jpeg, so I attached a tiled PDF.

Hey Bipe!

That looks great.... I have similar gear waiting to go into a Hobbico Spitfire, but I just saw that my LHS has depron now. So the past couple days I was thinking about building a depron plane to beat on first.


Been thinking about just using a slab a depron for the wing. Think that would work? Or should I go with a blue foam wing? Can you fill me in on how you made the wing?

I have a CNC foam cutter, so I used that to cut a Clark-Y airfoil. I think that you could use a sheet of depron that is curved to match the top of the airfoil or even a flat sheet, although it might neet a carbon fibre spar to support the motors.

It isn't shown on the plan, but the motor mounts are popsicle sticks.
