Here's a pic of my Pond Racer. Have'nt had time to work on it in a couple of weeks, but i'll be back on it next week. 30 oz. & 200 sq" of wing should make it fun on 250 watts. I'll be painting it with Krylon Shortcuts.

Not the prettiest thing at the field, but a very flight capable and fun to fly machine.

It's a modified and slightly larger version of the "model" that inspired it. I call mine the BLU-F-O (Blucor Flying Object), and it was inspired by the legendary I.F.O (Indoor Flying Object).

Powered by a Hobby Lobby Esskay 400XT swinging an 11X3.8SF APC propeller the model is rather capable of performing most basic 3D maneuvers.
Battery packs used with it are 7.4V KOKAMs, ESC a Great Planes SS-12, RX a Hitec Electron 6 and servos are Hitec HS-55s. Base color is Blucor's own color. Stripes and sunburst were done using Krylon's Fusion spray bombs.

I had one of those. a IFO made out of foam it was really fun, I always said it looked like a bat lol, I finally destroyedit flying in about 10-15mph gusting to 20 mph winds. I riped the wing apart in the middle. and on the ends, Oh well I have another if I want to complete it one day.

YUP! I noticed it on your website a few weeks ago. These things look so weird in flight, yet they fly so well. Why don't you build another one, it's so cheap. :)

Most people at the clubs I belong to think of it as a giant flying insect, a gnat of all things! :D

In that case, could i safely use any spray paint if i hold the can away from the model far enough? i've had good luck with that cheap Krylon that dries in like 20 minutes. at $0.97 a can, you can't beat it! it works well.:cool:

Another FFF plane, I used trim pieces to jazz it up. I would either use something else or I'd use some 3M 77 spray to help hold the pieces down. I looked great though. The pix doesn't show the plane very well.

Most of my crew has become ChargerRC (http://www.chargerrc.com/) fans. These are some of the best foamies in the air for 3D without a doubt. These guys are freaks when it comes to developing better and better units. I have the "Temecula Yak", and my son is now flying the CR-2. These things are sick acrobats in the air... many of the Giant Scale guys in SoCal are flying Chargers! They are THAT good.

You can "steal" them from my bud over at Temecula Valley Hobbies (http://temeculavalleyhobbies.com/index.php). CALL and tell Tim that TMan sent you... I think he still offers free shipping and insane discounts.

C130 flys great. This pic is after about 20 flights. I may have seen a build thread on yours somewhere I remember that fancy antenna work on the tail. Mine is totally stock and needed a small amount of nose weight.
I live just 15 miles south of Dover AFB so c130s and c5s fly low over my house every day thats why I did it with the Dover stripe on the tail.

Cat,the two servo's in the larger ship pictured,help control the the control surfaces,in high speed,high G manuvers.A single servo works,but is easly overpowered at high speed,with the large control surfaces. The Big Amos has a 40 inch wing span,and large aielrons. One servo dosen't cut it with this plane,plus as you mentioned,you can add mixing such as flaperons,or flaps.Plus the response is alot better.

Is that a rubber bumper on its nose? :confused:

Ha well spotted. Its not the original nose had a bad tip stall and landed it on its nose I repaired it and flew it for quite a long time with no problems but I wanted to try Lippo cells and I couldn't balance it so I cut the nose off and put my own on. In my opinion its better than the original and I made it 2 inches longer so now I use Lippo and it balances just right with no added weight. The bit right at the end is tip of the nose from the original epoxed its great it acts like a buffer or crumple zone if you have a really heavy landing it pushes into the nose section with no damage to the rest of the nose then you just re glue it...I'm thinking of taking a copyright out..ha..ha.

Adhoc

This model I beleive is quite difficult to get hold of in the states but you can get them if you look hard enough I beleive. The Aero-Naut Twinspeedy is a really great model but I would have to say its not a beginners its full V tail and aileron control with twin reversed timed 400 6v motors its aerobatic and fast but the foam is not as strong as the Easystar.
It was my first aileron plane and I was told exactly what I'm telling you but I decided to take the chance and go for it. I managed quite well at the beginning but it did take me by surprise on the first 2 or 3 flights! if you manage to get one it will not take long for you to master it.
If I could give you any advice it would be get as much practice as you can on the good old Easystar but try and get some experience on a aileron controlled model and then you will be ready for this bird.

I have some flight videos if you'd like to see it fly give me a shout and I'll post the link.

Thanks Dave, very nice! That IS a speedy aircraft, and nimble as well. If my EasyStar is a good-natured pre-teen boy on a bicycle, your Twinspeedy is his cool teenage brother (or maybe 20-something uncle?) on a motorcycle... {grin}

Good way of discribing it sounds about right! Glad you both liked the videos.

Beautiful aircraft! Curious about the power system; my first (uninformed) thought was "ducted fan", but I guess anything you put in that is sort of "ducted", eh? {smile}

If I remember correctly, the real life F-16 is not inherently stable, and used a computer fly-by-wire system to actively keep it under control. Seems like your model might be a handful to fly manually... Good luck!
