Default Jinx, The Evil Twin

Working on a new for a dual CDR powered Sport/3D plane named Jinx.

Building a FFF version first to test the concept, then on to a Full Laser cut Balsa / Carbon Fiber airframe.

Ready to maiden the FFF version weighs 10 OZ AUW Dual 20T CDR power plants spinning 10!QUOT! counter rotating propellers on dual PH 10 ESC's powered by a Kokam HC 1500 2S battery.

When I get my new 6 channel receiver I will also expirement with differental thrust coupling the rudder to the dual ESC's

Stay Tuned

Videos are a little large, i have cable and a download accelorator but for those with slower modems you might want to make a smaller, lower quality version so others can also see your creation. I must admit, i always wanted to make an airplane of my own design, but I am to sissy to experiment with it yet.

Nice airplane and nice video. [sm=lol.gif]

Not my covering Job. Dusty Scott in Atlanta did it. Awsome.

THe Darth Vader Tie fighter is still comming along. It's harder to get it to fly than you might think.

THe FFF plane is a precursor to a Balsa version, but if enough people want a foam one, I'll make some up. Not sure on price yet.

I landed in Dead stick in the snow once and grabbed it out of a hover the 2nd time.
