Hi Art
Thanks for the pics, looks like you're having too much fun, did you run into another plane...
Good job.

Re: Blue Foamie

The rest up us made do with you motley collection of blue and white foamies. I have been playing with a 26" model that really works well in the gym. With no attempts to save weight the model flies at 150gms all up. using an HK2100kv motor and an 8" prop will see it hover at less than half throttle. Here are a couple of pics of the planes and pilots in action.

Hi Paul
Thanks for the pics, nice work on the Arrow and all those foamies. Your foamboard is more than likely the same foam we buy at the Dollarama stores in Ontario, I find it a bit fragile but it's extremely light, after the paper is removed, of course. It's refreshing to see people from every province enjoying themselves indoor.

Re: Blue Foamie

Gaston,
Your 20" SBACH if it was built out of 1mm depron with some 1mm carbon rod for re-inforcment in some places, Do you think it will fly on 1cell lipo> I was thinking the guts out of a UMX 4-site or UMX extra?

Hi
I don't think the components are powerful enough, It would probably fly it but I doubt it would hover, both of those planes only weigh 1.2 and 1.25 oz. AUW, my Sbach will weigh between 2 and 2.5 oz AUW, I'm still waiting for the proper electrics. Considering I was using an HK 2402 motor, 16g 250 mA 2s batteries, std Orange Rx, bigger servos, it was still flying incredibly well. It would probably fly it but I doubt it would hover. I might try to post a video this coming weekend.

Hi I just realized I didn't answer part of your question, If you succeed in making an Depron airframe weighing the same as the UMX's airframe, it would work. I just cut another mini Sbach a few minutes ago and it weighs 14 grams (1/2 oz) it's a very interesting question, let me know how you make out.

Re: Blue Foamie

Hi Gaston
No, I actually was making a LOW pass around the gym floor and was just getting excited to see the Cub actually flying, slow. Change props to a cut down Vapor prop, 5" and it did make a difference with the lower pitch... Now, back to the 30" sBach, hopefully
Hey, dates left for LIFT's indoor, January 15th, February 12th, March 11rh and, April 15th.. Hope you an some of the Sudbury gang, and the Hanover gang can make one of these...
And when you come, bring some 20"er kits wit ya..... Got some sales for ya..

Hi Art
We'll making the trip later this winter, thanks for the invite, It was nice to see you smile on that earlier pic I'm still waiting for parts to complete the testing of the 20 in. as soon as I find out what's needed I'll start shipping.
So far I'm down to 2.7 oz or 77 g, this is only by removing the wing braces (they are not needed) and making the landing gear 1 mm, instead of 1.5 mm.

Hey, let us experiment too!... Start shipping now with minimum hardware (though I do like you full kits with all the small parts but no electronic). We can do some test in parallel

I have tons of stuff on small 2S batteries here! 120mah to 360mah and quite a few motors/esc.

Hi Real
I'll ask Ray to do a couple minor changes to the software and I'll cut a few kits, I'll pm you shortly.
