Latest Creation

Hello Everyone,

This is my latest Scratch build. I call it TwinFan and its a Foam board / Foam built plane with wing from guineepig design extended in the middle. The Fuselage is the next evolution of my foam board (blue board from home store).

Twin 70 mm edf. 4s bat 40a esc y connected. frsky gear with x8r rec. and XPD openTX Trans

I have not put flaps in but thinking it will need them bench testing it had lots of thrust.

Continuing to evolve this method. This time learned a lot about the wing joint. Years ago used fiberglass with old gas models. I used it hear as well but realized to late how much better I could have done it. But I now know and I plan to build I think one more this winter to fly soon and all that I have learned so far will be in that build. Stay tuned I will bring it over to the field and see if I can get some Video.
