Well.... I got the canards (mostly) built! She sure as heck ain't ready to maiden... :confused:

Somehow I forgot that we were taking a week for family vacation in March which really put the final nail in the coffin for my March build plans. But I'm still plugging away on it!

@ Fidget - While that may not have been where you wanted to be, you've made significant progress on approach and what most likely won't work. heck that's 60-90% of most inventive processes

Challenge NOTE:

I think Pencils down will be Tomorrow Evening.
I will look through the projects and rate them via scoring rubric, followed shortly by the bracket and the polls

Personal note/excuses: I have spent much of the times I have for the challenge builds, with Foxtail each building FT Simple Scouts together, and a STEM teacher getting ready to introduce FT build techniques and glider building to middle school students.

Sadly the productivity has been minor:
  • VF-9 Motor installed, controls are mostly set, canards need work.
  • LPL Flying Submarine Rebuild motor electronics are half-installed. hoping to get the other half tonight.

Hobby Knives Down!

Alright, I've procrastinated/been-distracted enough;

Hobby Knifes Down.

I will be going through the projects this week and score leading to a placement seed. From there I will set up the bracket!
By all means, please continue your efforts. Finish what we started (and continued). Let's drum up some attention here. Each bracket will have a week for polls.

Do your best! Good luck to all!

Another great challenge Foamy, I think we need to do a super June where we make large designs for FFE this year then fly them all together there. Just an idea but I think it would be cool, plus I have a giant 500kv 6s motor that needs a home...

Family and voting!

I hate it when that happens :p keep at it. While pencils might be down, people still review your page to see the progress when they vote next week. so Keep at it!

I finished my design, built and flew the prototype. Plans have been released and at least one other forum member has built and flown the Bloody Brit! Good luck in the bracket everyone.
