Most Ugliest Plane?
I recently was given a thing with wings on it. The previous owner didn't have much joy with it but thought I may be able to do something with it. It is 'designed' with FPV in mind but I use the designed word with scepticism. I am rebuilding it and as I have some FPV gear I will put it to use but the more I look at this 'thing' the uglier it becomes. The foam it is constructed of is the roughest I have ever encountered and I tried all sorts of films to cover the wings but nothing comes close to sticking so I will just have to grin and bear it. The drag co-efficient must be horrible to say the least so I will not attempt any long range type FPV. I know I wouldn't have a hope of it gliding home if it loses power. The tail needs completely remounted as do several other bits. I had to cut the main wing in half to remove the anhedral and remount the tail boom so it is straight in line with the fuse. Gee, I wish I could say no sometimes... Still, it came with a nice E-Max Motor and 4 digital metal geared servos so that is a bonus. :rolleyes:
What do you consider to be the ugliest plane in your mind? :eek:
Here is mine. :blah: (Hobby King Photo)
Ahh, not so bad. Some of those FPV planes look like something only the Borg would love. Parts protruding from the fuselage, cables and wires sticking out everywhere, funky antennas. LOL!
