TIP for printing the plans:
To print "tiled" use Adobe Reader X and in the print dialog select "POSTER", select "Cut Marks" and make sure "Tile Scale" is 100%. Then overlap and tape as required (after trimming the top overlapping edge).

Hi Guys,
Love the build! Just wondering if you can advise what size, weight and hole diameter you used for your landing gear? I also noticed you put a plastic sleeve on the wire to act as a bearing. What did you use for this?
Thanks!

My work in progress baby blender - about 5 hours in:

i have a slight problem, my A2 foamboard is only 23 inches long, slightly shorter than the plans wingspan, it'll still fly with slightly shorter wings wont it? :)

We're working on one of these and we just finished the airframe. Now we have to paint it, so is there anything we should know before we start? And what did you guys use to tape off your stripes? Thanks

I'll second that! I have built several dollar-tree foam planes, but I have never actually painted one. What type of paint do you use? How do you keep the paper from peeling off? How do you mask the stripes? Do you use a clear-coat?

Thanks

OK I am off to pick up supplies.

I ahve been looking for a fun fly pop in the car airplane and this looks like it will be perfect.

I'll third that thought. I asked on the u-tube channel about the paint last week when the episode aired and haven't heard or read anything yet. I did try some paint on one of the foam board planes I built and everything warped.

Cool planes though. Build more.
