Thanks Chris...

The more and more i think about this, the more keen i am at doing an 'own' design. I scaled some drawings in AutoCAD last night, and sketched up the constuction details as i went along.
Project spec is :-

Easy and fast to build.
Good looker.
40 powered.

I will be starting the prototype on the weekend and will start a thread if anyone is interested. No idea if or how well the finished product will fly, but thats half the fun, eh?


There is a very fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness."

Thanks Jim about the scimitars. I will pick some up for my new one I have to make. The 10 degrees downthrust I straightened out was okay but when I was landing basically from a hover the channel broke and took the prop. It wasn't hard but I guess it was weakened to much behind the landing gear. Got to make a new one and have some more fun.

If you have an old 25 fp kicking around the Pizza Box is another good choice. I have a SPA3D as well. Set the ailerons about a 1/4 in above level line of the channel and it will be much more stable. Aileron authority is not all that good as the wing flexes to much. Still working on that one. Pizza box is much more maneuverable but won't hover straight up without flipping over back and going into an inverted flatspin. Its more fun to do wierd stuff with than the SPA3D and just as tough. How else can you have more fun with your cloths on.
