OIC. I thought I spied granite or some type of laminate under there. I so cleverly made my work bench outside too small and always end up on the kitchen counter. Can't really blame me. The tools in the garage are close, counter is right height, it's a large peninsula shape, I have clear view of the TV. I can hear my wife saying, "you better not be cutting on my granite counter."

Great looking plane Chellie!! I eagerly await the plans.

I too rent a 2br. and set up a folding table with a 36" X 81" solid door slab on top for a building surface in the spare bedroom.

Double AXI 5330's turning one shaft on two 10S batteries. Approximately 6000 watts or (hopefully) 150 watts per pound when done.

Hey Chellie, Well another job well done. But then that's the norm for you. A trick you might try next time you have to cut carbon fiber rods or tubes is to use a small tubing cutter. You can find a model called the Imp at most Auto Supply Stores that will close small enough to cut all the way through carbon rod stock. By using the tubing cutter there is no dust or fragmented ends that can split later on. And before somebody jumps on me, yes I know it won't cut on angles but that's what your paper towel trick is for. Keep the great planes coming. Maybe one day when I can start a project and work on it regularly to finish I'll post a build of one of my toys. Anyway just keep them coming. Charlie

Shoot!

I hadn't gotten the usual e-mail notification from new posts for this thread, I just happened by to see if plans have been posted. Low and behold there they are! Very very nice Chellie. Being an ex machinist I love the mechanical drafting plans rather the tiled plans that seem to be more popular.

Thanks again!

Hey Chellie,

I know you made yours from 6mm depron, but I still have so much of the Elmers foamboard from that sale at Micheals I told you about, (still have 13 sheets) I'd hate to have to by something else if I can use this. (I'm knda cheap...errr no no frugal, that's it). Will this be ok if I use skewers in the fuse and wings?

Thanks again for the great design and buildguide

It looks like there is a 1/4 inch cut out on the bottom skid for the wing and then the 1/4 inch cut out on the booms that you would want to change to the thickness of the foam board. I don't think its quite a 1/4 inch. I would think as long you change these cut outs it would work fine.

Hi David sure you can use the foamboard from michales, just cut the slots 3/16" of an inch rather than the 1/4 " for the depron, No problem also you might want to add some CF tube to the leading edge of the wing, just to make it a little stronger , or add some wood dowel, that will work too, as the 3/16 foamboard is a little thinner, and not as strong as the 6mm depron, my first pusher jet was made from foamboard, and it went almost 100 mph, that was a little to fast for me, so i went back to the BP21 motors for a speed of about 60 mph, my first pusher jet had a 3500kv motor and a 4.75x4.75 prop, and it moved real good here is a pic of it, Take care, Chellie
