    just tried doing a weight mock up,around about 33 oz but theres still horns,linkage,motor mounts,cables and paint,aiming for about 45 oz,still light for a 34 inch plane,my su 30 is 25 oz at 30 inch and im happy with that,so the power to weight is still better,well thats the way im looking at it,proof of the pud.

    Got some quick flights in today. Smaller area than I normally fly in. This is my 80% size. I am taking it apart for another build. Great flyer, very aerobatic, more style than a profile only plane. Goes together fast. Highly recommended for those that are looking for the next step after profiles.

    finally got round to doing a bit more,motors on and most of the servos are in,loosing sight of my estimated 45 oz total,48 oz so far,servo leads and paint to do plus any odds an ends,thats using 4000 batt as i got quite a few of them and its lighter than two 2200 that i was goin to use,must build lighter,new to making foamys so low 50 oz is light for me with a 34 inch plane,anyone know a sort of max wing loading of a plane this size before it looses its get up and go.

    much to my relieve i found my scales were not reading correctly,thankfully in my favour,even after latest mods shes at 41 oz so my original target of 45 oz may still be hit,with the bigger plane the cockpit deserves the effort,pilot Johny Depp..ron thinks so. 001.JPG 003.JPG 007.JPG 006.JPG

    no its only the pop bottle trick,well two in this case as a 2litre bottle on its own is not gig enough,if it was normal size 80% or even 100% one would of done the trick

    Nicely done Andy. .. it looks cool.

    I've been tempted to try this on my own but right now "time" hasn't been my friend.

    I like your attention to detail.

    Looks good, Andy! Very good color scheme for orientation, although I keep my bottoms white. That canopy looks so good!!!

    i was going to leave the bottom but got carried away,servos and rx all plugged in and working,motors and esc,s to do now, got to make up the extention leads,was hoping they were goin to be about 12 inchs but looks like they will be nearer to 18,that will be 9 feet,the weights creeping up again.

    Andy, believe me, don't worry about the weight too much! I built mine at 37 oz or so, and thought it was heavy. Once I flew it I bumped the weight up to 41/42 oz! It felt good about 41 oz! Come to think of it, I guess I flew heavy like Lars before Lars flew like Lars!
