    Building the Balrog - 2kg/70oz biplane - out of foamboard (but also balsa and plywood ;)

    Description The goal of the project was to make use of a couple of old ~450W+ motors (Dualsky XM3548CA-5 850kV and Turnigy C3548 900kV) and four 4s 2300mAh LiFe battery packs that have been lying around idle for several years now. Since this stuff is pretty heavy, and since I like biplanes, it...

    New Mini Biplane Design

    So this build started by me looking at my old, beat up, mini speedster and wondering if I could make a sub 250 gram (so I could fly it at the end of my street) slow flying biplane. I started by deconstructing the speedster to take measurements. The fuse id more or less the same to the speedster...

    The Dragonfly: a twin mini biplane

    Hey all! It's been a while since I've done anything but I wanted to share my younger brother's custom designed and built foamboard twin biplane with you guys. He drew it, redrew it as a dxf, cnc'd it, built it, flew it, and here it is. :) Specs: 2x Red-bottom motors & 25a escs 5x 9g servos...

    Bi-Wing? Would this work? Have you tried?

    Hey gang! So I do my best (read: weirdest) thinking between 10pm and 1am and for some reason I just thought, "What if you took two flying wings and mounted them on top of one another? What if the wings were under cambered instead of just flat bottomed? The space between the wings would be able...

    Supah Bype Build

    Hey! This is my first build that is purely scratch, and my design. It is loosely based on the Ultimate Biplane, should turn out nice. I have built one already, did not fly very well (don't use Elmer's FB), made some changes and hope they work! Last night I drew new plans, and cut them out...

    Mini Aeromaster (Like) Biplane

    Mini Aeromaster Inspired Biplane I have been a fan of Lou Andrews Aeromaster since I was a teen, circa late 1970s and early 1980s. Mine was built for me by my father, that was a great gift. It flew one with a Fox Eagle III on the nose. Now since I returned to RC flying a few years ago I just...

    36" Fiat CR. 42 Falco

    While I've been waiting on parts for my Hot-wire cutter for my JU-52 project, I've decided to take on a home project- The CR. 42 Falco has been a magnet to my eye for quite some time now, and ever since I built my Brewster Buffalo, I knew I'd want one as its adversary. I followed a very...

    Biplane Scratch build construction

    I decided to start building a depron biplane using the known flitetest build techniques. searching the internet on how to construct a biplane the right way, I found several differtent aspects to be important: size and angle of the horizontal stabilizer angle of main wings angle of thrust...

    Mini-Scout Biplane With Plans

    Here is my attempt to make a biplane out of the Flite Test Mini-Scout. The wing span is barely over 24" and 5 31/32" wide. I stretched the fuselage a little. I also changed and enlarged the tail feathers a little bit. The bottom wing has 1 43/64" of dihedral. The top wing has no dihedral, but is...

    Pitts style biplane scratch build.

    Winter is here! And the "here" is Ohio! Insert appropriate cuss word. I prefer flibbatteefloo. I started on this last Saturday morning. Drew up the plans a week before that and I finished the build last night. I really like the styling of the Pitts biplane, so I thought I'd try to make...

    Foam Board Jenny

    Hello again all. I decided I should post my Jenny build to the forum. Alas, I have no in progress photos, but a few good ones of the completed model. I've done a few high speed taxi tests (Something you do on a full size airframe that so few modelers seem to duplicate.) and decided my rudder...

    Heinkel HE 51 Foamboard Plans

    So a while ago I decided to try and make some plans for a swappable, and I went with the Heinkel HE 51. Why an HE 51? Idunno, seemed like a good idea at the time. This is the first finished version, feel free to download and build the plans. If you encounter a problem building or flying it...

    ft aerobotic special

    A scratch build I put together then accidentally left hanging in my old apartment. I am planning on building it again and figuring out details. Some advice I would love to hear is four or two ailerons and symmetrical vs asymmetrical airfoil

It should be around the 100-200 dollar range (i have my own transmitter and reciever but everything else should be included in the cost) These are the planes that i...
