This is my latest project! My second foam Daddy-O! The first version was just like this, with reversed colors and no markings. They are powered by a GWS 350, 3.75 X 1, with a 9 X 6 APC-E prop. The first one was very fast and a lot of fun! I just finished this one, tonight, so haven't flown it yet. The first one weighed 15.7 ounces. I haven't weighed this one yet, but I think it is a little lighter. I'll take it to the post office tomorrow and weigh it.
Stay tuned!

PS - The third pic is of the original, as are the flying pictures.
I weighed the second model, today, and it came in at 15.6 AUW.

This plane is built from the pull out plan in Fly RC, except I have extended the wingspan 4". I believe it was the May' 05 issue.
36" span, covered with TowerKote, 400 brushless outrunner from Horizon Hobby, 2S 1250 LiPos, 9X6 APC-E prop, GWS 15 amp esc, GWS receiver and auw of 15.3oz.. Flying, but still in the trimming stage! Lots of power!

No one ever posted on this, but they turned out great!

ParkScale is offering a lasercut kit of this as well as Steven's Aero.

Cool Plane!
