This is an incredible thread. This guy is building an all foam 24' wingspan electric powered R\C plane in his dorm room. Everything is foam, the spar, the wing skin, everything.

I just read over the posts on this beast. It sounds almost too increadable to believe but RC Nuts will do just about anything to prove a point!

I wonder really, how much thought that this fellow has given to the power system in a plane this large! He's building the plane first and then will decide what to do about engine and the system to power it! Good luck!!!!

His line of thinking is that since the plane will weigh less than 30lbs (I think he said) it will not require a tremendous amount of power to fly. He strikes me as the kind of person that doesn't let things get to complicated. His approach seems to be I will get what I need to get. Truely awesome bird if it flies.

Wow that took a long time to read! 17pages and 255posts and climbing.

Even if he builds it light, with a 24ft wingspan he has a lot of drag working against him.

But I will still be cheering him on!!!


If you want awesome, you have to scratch build it!
