Default Twin Biplane

For a few years I have wanted a twin biplane so last week I started one. Designed as I built it. Flew it on Saturday and it rolls left sometimes, think torque or poor servo not centering, but a good flyer.
I painted it cranberry red but came out hot pink.
WS ~ 40in, auw 34oz, 24 amps.
More than enough for sport flying.

Cheers,
Marc

Nice looking airplane, I think there is a thread running somewhere on aircraft paint schemes for visibility, you might consider posting a picture there as well

Nicely done. I like the tail group setup!

I think I need a signature.

Nice job Mark love the PINK Color I think the reason for the plane rolling left is because the rudders are a little small for the size of the plane, if they were taller and bigger, that may help, sometimes our RC planes cant be scaled down exactly to a full size planes size, they need a little help here and there, Just my 2 cents worth, Take care and Have fun, Chellie

The colour is easy to see. Some club members are calling me the pink baron. I normally go for gawdy, easy to see schemes but this time went for dark red and white. Guess the RC gods didn't like me changing my ways.

The tail seems small but it is about 10% of the main wings, thought that would be good. There are three finns and two rudders.
I may look into adding some area to the tail but i found an aileron servo chattering so will replace that first.

Cheers,
Marc
