Default Bristol M1C foam scratch built

I am making a Bristol M1C using a printed paper airplane enlarged and glued on foam for the fuselage.

That's pretty slick. I've been kicking around the idea of making something similar (Moraine A1) with similar construction. Will be fun to see it progress.

When I cut this one out I cut at an angle so the foam would fit together. I made the angle cut too much. It don't take much of an angle for the foam to fit back together. Also where the foam fits togerher at the bottom of the front of the fuselage I should have cut the foam just a little smaller then the paper, the paper has a small gap. I will cover the gap with small pieces of paper printed the same color. I will cover other gaps too, just hope it don't show. Will find out when I do it but should look okey.

I have files for printed MS 30E1, I, and N if you want them. I plan on painting the wings and not use printed paper.

I would love a copy of the MS 30E1. A site says it's the trainer version - does that mean a 2 seater version? Or just no gun? Lovely plane.

Single seat, no gun, parasol monoplane. Send me an email and I will email the file to you. Do you have a program to enlarge the plane and tile print it? I use PosteRazor. It is a free program found on the net. I can email it too if you want.

WS is 39 inches. I cut a set of GWS Cub wings to shape. As is sets the length is 21 inches. I think the spinner will make the length 22.25 inches which will make scale about 1/11. That makes the wings about 6 inches longer than scale. As it sets it weights 6.5 oz. I have an old brushless motor from a computer tape drive that I hope will have enough power to fly it.

How are you using the CDrom motors? Rewinding? What ESC?
Inquiring minds want to know.

Not a CDrom motor. This motor is a tape drive motor. It is a little larger and has ball bearings. I tried several rewinds till I got the motor to turn a 9x7 prop at 4000rpm on 2s, 32 watts. The motor is now 20turns of #26. It will turn a 7x6 prop 5300 rpm. If this motor will not fly the plane I will order a 2410-09 for it. The 2410-09 should fly this plane at half throtle or less. I have another plane about the same size and weight as this one, it has a 2410-09 with 10x7 prop and flyes real nice at less than half throtle for over 30 min on an old 2s 1200. It turns the 10x7 prop 4000 RPM at 43 watts. I just use a cheap 30 amp ESC I paid about $11 for at Dealextreme.

Have you ever tried using the computer BL motors "as is" without rewinding?

The motors will not turn a large prop fast enough unless rewound. I am wondering if I made a twin engine caudron g4 if 2 cdrom motors unmodified turning small props would have the power it fly it.
