    Ha ha probably not only retracts Even the Fullback only lights i am putting on is front wheel lights an retracts
    I'm just spending more time in scaling detail , then most others would so when there both finished it is a mirror image of the the real ones .trust me both will look sick
    Even have print shop doing decals for the full back :)

    Finished building Steve Shumate's JAS 39 Gripen, turned out to be sweet, took me quite sometime + lot of patience during sanding but so so happy with the end result, decided to add kf2 instead of flat wing, will be using fasttech 2212 S / 2700 Kv motor. Weight is around 480 Grams without battery and paint, balancing perfect with 1500 3s battery. Maiden this sunday :))

    Got my mind on his su37 now, these projects are too time consuming, i could make Rcpowers, PI, 3 jets in that much time haha

    True which one looks better when its done right ??? comparing both planes its all about how much you put into anything is what you get at the end result
    Don't kid your self every plan out there has pieces of this plan and that plan included in some way
    RCpower plans like Bimo , And shannon mentioned its designed for all ages cheap fast and in the air
    Steves plans are pretty much the same idea but it involves some curving and sanding

    If a person cut his foam good glued it in place there is really not much sanding other then nose

    But hey that is the fun in building anything its how far you want to go . Some like slapping on a wng rudder power and fly others like to detail make a nice bird something that is going to last and look awesome

    Hi guys, it's been a little while since i checked in, lots of new planes on the drawing board that i don't have time to get to unfortunately. In my limited spare time i built a cessna agwagon from some plans i found,. Gotta say that the plans weren't that good, and my building skills worse for this one..
    [​IMG]

    On the maiden flight (lasted about 15 seconds) it pulled to the left and as soon as it got a little sideways it fell to the ground.
    [​IMG]
    So ihave re-glued the nose together 4 times now, each time i try flying i seem to get a bit more flight time but always the same result, as soon as it gets a little sideways it just falls from the sky. Ideas welcome

    I was out having a good ime with my big Su-30, the honking big motor gives it some really nice air, however, that honking big motor decided to leave the airframe in mid flight, couldn't find it, searched for half an hour till dark.........

    I decided it's time to try something a bit different.

    Sounds cool, just need some time to try it out. :)
    Blue skies and happy flights to all.
     
  11. That sucks, those big as* motors you have to beef up the motor mounts. ;)

    You've mounted those twin motors in what looks like the perfect place, if you wanted to program differential thrust.

    Are you planning differential thrust? You'd have yaw control like nothing else if you did - flatspin king! :D

    That's the plan, i wanted to put them a little further forward but that was where the carbon rod is, shouldn't be too much trouble with balance.

    If you can fit undercambered wing tips. They should prevent tip stall.
    See the Aeronca L-3 thread.[​IMG]
    Also, shim the motor with some side thrust to counter the tendency to turn left under power.

    Nakul; you have a work of art there. It takes an awful lot of patience to build Steves designs. I have built two. He is a very articulate designer, details, details. Keep up your good work.
