Hello again everyone...
This is a brief preview of my next adventure, "Half Sheet No Waste Series". This is my next step in attempting a workable indoor concept for the FT foamboard building method.
Here are the first three in the series:
Here are the plans that I built the protoptypes from:
The concept is very similar to my "One Sheet No Waste Series" but simplified somewhat to minimize weight. I have not planned any hatches or landing gear. There are no bottom panels on the wings. The servos are 5 g. The tail booms are skewers instead of dowels. The two twin-tail designs are three channel. I did go to 4 channel on the flying wing partly because it has more wing area and partly because I just wanted to play with 4 channel on a wing.
These range in weight from 224g (7.9 o) to 238g (8.35) oz ready to fly.
So far I have done one short fight with each outside. Inside trials next.
I am working on 4 channel versions of the twin tail designs. I would have had them done except for running out of small motors and servos. Thankfully X-Mas is close by.
I hope to have the full article by New Years.
Well, I said short. That is it. Just a little teaser.
Have a good holiday. See you New Years.
