    AP Kwak ... the Mighty Mini Foam Board Mod of the Jupiter Duck



    Build the Kwak and use your existing Mini Power Pod! You need two sheets of Foam Board.

    Here is a video of the maiden flight.


    Description
    The Kwak based on the Jupiter Duck designed by Thomas Buchwald.
    I saw this funny plane in the "Modell AVIATOR", a german RC Flight Magazine.



    The plan for the original depron build is available here: http://modell-aviator.de/files/av021...piter_duck.pdf

    The original Jupiter Duck is made of depron, but i wanted one made of FT Water-Resistant Foam Board, which works with the FT Power Pack A or F and is ready for 3S. So i decided to adapting the plan, to making some modifications and the result is the Kwak.

    Have fun!

    That looks pretty cool. Its like a water version of the FT Old Fogey kind of. Looks like you did a nice clean conversion from depron to FT water board. GL with the maiden looking forward to the videos.

    Cool man, I was just eyeballing a twin version of this thing not too far back. Think it was on RC groups.

    Looks like you did a good job with the weight. I'm betting this thing will really rocket around.
