Dean and I just got back from the field a little while ago after test flying his newest design, and my PQPorsche (that is the name I decided on). Well - I am happy to say that it flies just like the Plastic Concept Planes flying car (thanks Scott for the inspiration!). Very solid - good flying "novelty" R/C plane. It is not a "regular" airplane by any stretch of imagination - but it flies very predictable. Now I've got to get some plans done

With this type of design - the sky is the limit! I think I'll make an M1A1 Abrams tank for my next one!!!!!

PLANS PLEASE!!!!! That is something that would literally casue massive bewilderment at my field, I would love to see the looks on the locals faces. I emailed pics of the big carthing to a couple of friends and they were shocked, kept asking me if it was for real. This is really a cool design to fly.

The Porsche was in RCM magazine and they have the plans available for it and the Lawnmower. The Doghouse is from Model Airplane news plans.
I like the Idea of Spad-ing any of the above ,they are all very cool (planes??) here is a pic of the original Porsche model from RCM.

Also remember the flying witch on a broomstick?? I do, there are lots of weird flying things out there :stupid:

Sorry to keep throwing up these wierd planes but Kraut putting up that Porsche brought the memories flooding back.
Here is a pic of the Witch, Its a sort of Regallo (SP??) wing; like a Hang Glider.

And here are the plans for the Witch; Looks like a good canidate for a piece of downspout and some Coro to me, Of course some fabric would be needed for the wing

It is great to see all of the cool ideas that could easily be made from Coroplast! I certainly hope that I wasn't coming across like I "reinvented the wheel" with my posting of the PQPorsche. I have seen all the cool flying "novelties" for years - I just decided to make one from Coroplast that could use a .40 sized engine! The creative geniouses from Plastic Concept Planes have a really neat .60 to .76 sized flying Porsche - and I really liked it - but I didn't have any engines that big - hence the PQPorsche!!!

Thanks to Scott and crew!!!

Re-Inventing the wheel??Not at all Kraut Heck I didnt even know about the Plastic Concept Design Porsche. As for re-designing something like that ,I think you hit the nail on the head!! See a plane; err car?? you like and build it to suit your needs; like your case a 40 sized version.

That is plane bashing at its finest, Its been done for years and it is nice with the Coro stuff because it makes it all so much easier.

Kraut, I presume that the Plastic Concept guys your referring to are the ones who flew the bigcarthing at the Spadfest?? I thought that was using at least a 160 engine or a gasser. I happen to have an MVVS .91 lying around, what sixe of car would be good do you think?

You are correct MalaysianFlyer - the same great folks that flew the huge flying car........wing........thingy !

I think that your .91 would be a perfect match with the design that they already have. I believe it measures 24" X 36 (basic wing dimensions). You might get ahold of the guys from Plastic Concept Planes to see if they have any plans available.....or you could always design your own!

Kraut, thanks for the info.

I ma thinking of designing my own (assuming I can get away from the office). So far it looks to me like an airfoiled wing with winglets and I could probably assume balancing will be similar to a PBF. Do you think that would be a good starting point?

I put the CG on my PQPorsche at 22% - and it seems to be about right.
Please tell me you'll bring the PQP to Tulsa!?
Yup! I am planning on bringing her to Tulsa. I hadn't given it much thought - but Tattoo told me I probably should!!!
