And if you seen him fly helis on the sim you would see that I will never catch up to the lil bugger .... Hummm .... UNLESS I chop his unlimited funds!!!! (evil laugh). Naaaa! I hope he takes on the helis next season ... I think he could put on one heck of a show or put me in the poor house lol.

Hi

Awesome, that's why Idon't bother with CA, it's also easier to clean the CF if you want to use it in the next plane.
Sounds great, can't wait to hear from you.

Re: Blue Foamie

I think i could have lost 3-4grams if i didnt add the flat carbon fiber on the leading edge.

Heres a few pictures of my build, I didnt add any colour but i will probably soon.

We've tried without CF on the leading edge and it didn't take long to realize that it becomes too fragile and flexes too easily.
I'm glad to see that you were able to keep it that light, even after adding the extra bracing, looks good and sturdy.
What prop are you using.
Still waiting for the maiden flight report....

Re: Blue Foamie

I got home early today from school with just a bit of sunlight left, maidened it and it flies great, smooth rolling harriers, inverted harriers and knife edges. My brother wasnt home so i couldnt get a video but i will try to get one asap, maybe tonight too if it doesnt pour rain.

Thanks for the report, there's no rush, whenever you have a chance, a video would be great.
I just put one together tonight with an Eflite park 250 motor, it ended up 4.2 oz AUW, I was in my recroom, I had to be careful, lots of power, I was hovering at less than half throttle and as soon as I added a bit of throttle, it was at the ceiling in no time. The motor weighed 15g with the motor mount and I was using an 8043 SF prop. I'm waiting for some HK park 250, hopefully, they will weigh the same.

Re: Blue Foamie

Wow that's really light, I have a 8040 prop on right now that flies perfectly, I had a 9050 but it was way to power full.
