Udet U12 Flamingo 1/8 scale FF'23 Barnstormer's Challenge build thread

Out of Foam Board!
This is just my quick build for the Barnstormer challenge for Flite Fest this year. It's the Flamingo from Ernst Udet of WWI fame and WWII shame. It'll have a 1.25m wingspan and hopefully fly off just a power pack C. I'll be updating this part as I decide on more details, as of now I've just started the CAD process.

Love it! It's the perfect shape for foam board.

I’m busy right now with moving and exams, so I can’t start up work for a while.
Rgr. Hope that all goes well and you're able to get traction again! I'm VERY familiar with having life get in the way of my projects.
