Awesome! Love the
Looks awesome. I am relatively new to the forum and trying to be more active. You have likley seen some of my many question. I am 14. And got start flying models about a year ago. I fly when ever I can and the wind is not to crazy. I think I will try to participate in this challenge. How ever I just got into the hobby and I like building it just getting to be a strong builder and designer takes time. I have built the tri plane I forgot the name the duster and the guinea pig. I would really like to try and make something however I would have no idea on how to get started. First I would choice a plane. I have no idea what plane I would choice. After I choice a plane how would I figure out what shapes I need to cut out of the foam board? And how would I go about making plans? I would have plenty of time to work detail out, but I really like the idea of this challenge and can't wait to see what people come up with.
Welcome! We are all about helping people learn around here, and designing skills are no exception!
A great place to get started is the excellent video series by @nerdnic
- Here's the first in his series:
There are also great CAD templates by @localfiend
somewhere on the forum here (the link escapes me at the moment).
And you can also go really basic with the process too - start with a Flite Test plan or other community released plan and start modifying it to look like the plane you want.
So yes - come join in and we'll help you along the way!
