Default Profile Caddy Convertible - 1:1

Well it's been my life long dream but I have finally finished it. My 1:1 scale 1976 Eldorado Caddy convertible profile funfly. With a 500 4 stroke this thing has guts. It takes a while to get up to speed but once it's there you better have sod farm to slow it down!

Better check the CG as it looks like it might be a bit nose heavy!!!!!

Default Trunk is full of beer!

Now you got my attention!

I like your way of thinking there, Billy. Once I was at a fly-in and remarked that the plane I was flying was a bear when I first flew it....it was tailheavy. A guy standing there said it looked like it flew OK now, what did I do??

I told him my fix...put a bigger engine on it!

But if having too large an engine made it nose heavy, a trunk full of beer sounds like a good fix...just don't shake it up when you fly

I meant to credit you for the wing design. I also copied your covering scheme. I thought it matched the caddy perfectly. I also borrrowed your tail section.
All kidding aside. I think I might try to create the plane for real. It would be cool to have a plane that looks the car I carry it around it. That trunk can carry a profile plane, a zagi, my tood box and my flight box. You could rent out that trunk!
