Re: Blue Foamie

Any one have any words on the blue foam Yak55? Can someone post location for carbon fibre "X" bracing on the wing such as how far out from wing root and from leading edge.
Thanks
River

Re: Blue Foamie

Just finished my blue foamy and am just waiting for the indoor season to start.

Thanks for designing it GBjets and thanks again for the fan-fold foam Moo.

Position the braces approx. even with the wing leading edge and trailing edge near the root, that will determine the location of the opposite end of the braces, let me know if this helps.

Re: Blue Foamie

Gbjets, this should help me with the build.
Does it fly anything like the click. I like the way that flys

I still say a properly balanced Click flies better than the Yak

One thing I find, most people who fly indoor seem to have their planes balanced far too nose heavy.

These flat plate wings are VERY tolerant of tail heavy (and therefore very maneuverable) flight.

I would start by moving your battery back 1/4 inch at a time until you really get flying slow and nose high easily - hovering is very much easier - and maneuverability is awesome.

I have mine set so when I cut power back, the nose doesnt drop. My battery packs are almost 3 or 4 inches further back than most.

Just something to consider...

Until you go upside down and realize you have to hold 1/2 down elevator to keep it level. I prefer things to stay neutral in all axis of flight.

Thats why trimming out a nose heavy plane (which requires up elev trim) sucks when you go inverted - as suddenly you dive like a rock.

When I balance out my indoor foamies, I do so with a completely neutral elevator.

Just move the battery pack back and forth to get the desired maneuverability and flight characteristics.

My planes are identical upright or inverted.

I have test flown some others, which were very nose heavy - and required a lot of up just to break the ground, and you had no "finesse" when flying - as soon as you let go of the elevator they dove. Thats no fun!

My bat packs are back almost under the wing. My main point was DO NOT be afraid to play with balance on these.. the balance point isnt critical like on a larger RC plane.
