    tail booms and t tails

    I have been building and designing for some small amount of time and I find myself quite fond of single boom pushers. I'm not sure why i like them protection for the prop and simple nose to repair on impact probably weigh in. the problem I've found is that the combination of t tail and tail boom...

    Saab JAS 39 Gripen

    Update: The sketchup plans are good, increased the length of the slot for the wing. Here are a couple photos of it taped together to test fit the parts. Been really kicking the idea of building a pusher jet. Started hunting around for three view drawings and found this as a good candidate...

    Versa pusher Power Pod adaptor

    === OP start === I am building a simple 15cm wide center section for the versa wing that will allow the placement of the power pod in either direction without changes to the pod or airframe in order to make it truly swappable. When I am done I will make plans available and submit an article...

    Scratchbuild: Cheveron pusher wing. Simple KFm3 w/plans

    Hi Guys. This is my first post on the forums! I designed this foamboard wing as a nice easy to fly stable platform with the potential for FPV. I like it a lot, but I wanted to put the plans up to see what you guys think. I'm fairly new to building planes and I'm on about the 3rd version of...
