Steph and I built a couple new test planes, the left one is Steph's and is 29 in. weighs 4.6 oz AUW and uses a 2204 14 motor and 2s 360 mAh battery, mine on the right is 25 in. and weighs 2.9 oz. uses a C10 motor and 2s 180 mAh battery. They are both made with Dollar Store Foamboard, with the paper removed from both sides.
We're testing the same model from 25in and every in. up to 30 in. to find the best flyer.
Steph had to use bracing because his flexes too much but I got away without it, since mine is smaller.

ROTFL!!!!
Just got back to this forum............... Indoor RC Combat???????????
Uh uh uh, Not on yer life..... It's too close quarters for that kind of shennanigans... and besides that, as Chuck said, "Thought it was"!
No, but the F3P sounds very interesting... I'm gonna send our gang the sheet with the manouvers just to see if they are interested... Yes, flying circles can get boring and this just might fix that...
Will let all know what replies I get to it....

Re: Blue Foamie

Just dug out my crayons and butcher paper to make another indoor 3d job. Got this far. 20 in. WS. My criteria is lots of area and as light as possible. Probably use the 4 channel rcvr from HK that weighs 2.5 grams and the 1.7 gram servos. If they don't have enough poop I'll try the booster tabs that I use on my bigger planes. I like them to fly as slow as possible too, therefore the big ailerons. Will also put a flying stab on it. Works great for low speed stuff. Made from $ store foam and going to be called WHOPEE.

Re: Blue Foamie

Steph and I tested a couple of foamies (Axis) Sunday afternoon, the new ones shown in an earlier post. We weren't too impressed with the results, they seemed to be a bit slower but we both think that the 23" Sbach is better. Mine was 30" and Steph's was 29 in. I also tested a 25" with basically the same results. I'm still looking for the best in precision indoor aerobatics to be made with blue foam.

Nice going Gord, the main objective is to have fun. You seem to have the right idea.

Thumbs down Re: Blue Foamie

Did some redrawing of the F3P manouvers, Basic ones.. I think this is gonna be a great event, when we get it set up for Fanshawe....
Seems to be easy, altho Xavier said his simulatored one was a bit tricky, just look at the inverted flight..... Wing touch.... Whewwwww...
Whoops, problem with the download of the diagram....
Will try later, after the stom abates in Toronto...

You must be talking about the 29.5 in. Yak 55
Here's the info from the website.
foamstarmodels.com
CG should be approx. 60 to 70 mm from the wing leading edge near the fuselage

Nice to hear from you.

Hello Gaston, glad to hear from you too. The foamy I'm talking about is this one http://www.rccanada.ca/rccforum/showthread.php?t=83334 thats the model you sent me plans in 2009. I think it was a copy of the Click. Maybe its the same cg, dono!
Thanks
JP
