    Thank you ��
    Try to maiden the Bloody komet today but was to windy, so i only made unpowered glides to check the CG and needed deflection.
    It glides fantastic! CG fits perfectly and 5mm deflection is needed. Will ad this info to plans and also draw a gauge

    Sounds like a plan! I hope you are able to get video of the Kraftei! This may be the most radical design in the collection!

    Iím working on a Bloody Texan (T-6/SNJ). I had held off for a while because of the wing shape, but having seen your swept wing and swept leading edge designs, I think I can make it work.

    Wonderful work! Though, I admit, I'm especially looking forward to the 262 (one of my all-time favorite planes).

    I'm working on a few planes of my own at the moment (some of foam core and a couple from pink insulation foam), but my next big project will be a foam core (what everyone else is calling 'dollar store foam'), A-26 Invader. Fuselage lends itself to the box construction, but will have the twin-engine fun. My big problem is actually designing the 'folded' wings. Figuring out how large to make the under-wing piece and where to actually score the area of the wing in front of the spar is my problem at the moment.

    Oh, and how large to actually make the plane. I'll be using two Gforce E400 Brushless 2212-2200kv or 2212-2450kv motors. Since I'm new to using electrics, I'm not sure the sizing of plane to motor combinations, and the size of batteries and esc's. I was last really into flying almost 20 years ago, when electrics were just taking off (pun only slightly intended).

    Hi Mnemeth,
    The 262 will come soon.

    For the wing scorecuts and the lenght off the upper side compared to the low dide you can use existinp plsns as referrnce or find out by simple sketches. Some hints the spar should be placed on the thickest part of the profile. The thickest part of the profile should be at the cg or near to them. On the minis for example the upper side is approximately 5 mm longer lderper thsn the lower side. The spar id 5 mm thick. Sk with simple maths you csn cslculate the sizes

    Bloody Komet

    I just maidened the Komet a few minutes ago. It flew fantastic! I had about 5-10 mph of wind and it handled it no problem. Thanks for such a awesome plane!

    Fantastic news! Did you get pics or video? This is definitely one of the most exciting Bloody WWII designs so far.
    Happy to hear a good field report!!
