48 inch OMP inspired foamy

Wasn't sure where to post this put it on the scratch build section on rc groups but wanted to share with the local guys as well

I had the itch to make something out of foam today and one thing led to another

Wingspan is 48 inches plane length is 48 inches
Planned electrical is 35-48 sk from hobby king
60 amp esc and running on 3-4 s

The whole plane is being covered in ultracote

This is my first scratch build from no plans so take it easy on me and any tips are greatly appreciated

Sorry about image quality all done on my kids iPod

Initial parts laid out, the green chunk is my first go at applying ultracote on foam very easy on this ridged insulation

Fuse lammed and taking some shape

Had to see what she may look like the wing will be a mid wing but I am a bit off from a true dry fitting (yard stick in the picture) meter for all us Canadians lol

It looks like I may have gotten a little overzealous with the wing and may have to reduce the size a bit btw the wing when done will have a very small symmetrical airfoil and am not sure but perhaps a bit to much aileron. I am mostly concerned with fitting in the elevator.

Anyone want to name it

Thumbs up Re: 48 inch OMP inspired foamy

Why bother with an elevator? you could just do elevon mixing ... basically a flying wing with a rudder. Or, you could start without and add it later.

Nice job shaping the fuse - I've thought of doing something similar before, just no time .

Good luck... be sure to post the results!
