Fred;

Just saw your post with thr DR-1 - where did you get the plans / kit for it?

I would love a triplane, but haven't found anything cheap enough to build [X(]

Thanks

Terry

Will bump up this thread with a pic of a hybrid stick and foam IPS powered sort of old timer. 36inch WS weight is about 8 ozs RTF. Putts around the sky very scale-like.
Happy flying
Bob

Rick, now that is looking sweet.
Here's one I have under construction, it is a E-Starter fuse that's been modified and depron, it is a float plane modled after the aerocat amphibian. I should get my floats today

AJ,
Thanks! And yes she flies very well. Takes quite a heafty hand launch to get her going. She's not fast but flies with very scale movements and looks great going by. Been a real fun project. Here are a couple of in flight pics. Happy flying.

That looks great Rick. Really nice work. I'd like to work in depron, but I'm too cheap.

Coolbean,
She's made from bluecor fan-fold, balsa & pink foam. The total cost for the airframe including paint & decals was probably less than $25.00.

Coolbean,
The pink foam can be seen in post #54. I got it in 3' X 8' X 1" thick panels. It's used for insulation just like the bluecor. I belive it's a Dow Corning product. I laminated 6 pieces of 1" X 28" X 7.5" pink foam to create 2 blocks 3" X 28" X 7.5" to make the two fuse halves. The pics show the wing with the balsa and bluecor build-up, the two mentioned pink foam fuse halves after being hogged out with a make-shift hot wire cutter & the plane with the fuse, nose section and wing/elevons being test fit.
