I was looking for a list of materials used, cut size of parts, and such. I suppose I could study the pictures and make one close to the same size, but this is starting to look like more than a 4s battery pack power set-up. I am trying to stay under the 5s packs and stay 4s or less. I really, really like cartoon looking planes. You have probably seen those made by a guy on YouTube out of 3mm Depron or thinner. He is no doubt the king of cartoon RC flyers.

Chad- do you have your own laser cutter?

Five stars just on entertainment value alone.
Can't wait to see the build article for the plane!

Love the blender motor replacement. Looks like it didn't have any trouble making up that smoothie. Who needs a $300 blender, I'll just go and buy a cheap one, and throw a large brushless motor in there. Bonus here is that the blender is now portable, so you can make smoothies anywhere (even in the air).

Well, the Fowl Flyer got accidentally crushed. But we still have the wing. The Blender Plane is in my basement for now. I'm sure you'll see it again.
