I'm working on one too... not sure it'll fall in the same F3P category, but it'll be close.

Cheers,

It will be a 5mm version of my Phat Hawk made from $ store foam / depron.

Here's the Phat Hawk maiden flights - its a 9mm 1.3# EPP plane:

I'll upload pics when I have the new one built and am at home.

Hey Gaston, it was taken at our weekly Friday night indoor that I organize at a local school here:

http://goo.gl/maps/TSGac

Ontario has a "Community Use Of Schools" program / initiative such that any registered non-profit org can basically get reduced rent. In our case we pay an admin fee for each booking we make (which can be a whole bunch at one time) and then the hourly rate is paid for by the Ontario gov't.

I think you mentioned before that you guys have free access somewhere? If that ever runs out and you or someone up there is a member of a MAAC club then they could do it under that club's umbrella. In our case we do it under Cobble Hills' Fighter Group that I'm a member of.

Anyway.... Interesting that new model out of MPF. I've had some MPF sitting around here for awhile not getting used. We've been so engrossed with indoor combat that EPP has been the name of the game. Maybe I'll pull out a sheet and see what I can whip up.

Well... gotta go now. Attached is a pic of the Phat Hawk - note, I modded the tail since this photo and that vid to extend the bottom corner out more lengthwise. That removed the minor coupling in knife edge and the new rudder looks much cooler .

If you or anyone are bored and want to cut one the plans can be had for free over on my site: http://www.uberfly.ca/ (Just click on the free plans link).

I gotta get up there sometime and fly with you guys .

Cheers,
J
