I'll start with my most current scratch build. I present... My own version of an Edge 540. Constructed from DTFB this lil beauty does some nice 3D for its tiny size coming in at a 20 inch wingspan. The electronics were torn out of a first addition UMX Beast (without the AS3X) This plane hovers, rolling harriers, high alfa, and anything you want it to do.

Baby Baron

Here's mine. It's a 60% version of the Bloody Baron, 18" wing span. Uses the same electronics and power pod as the FT Mighty Minis. Shown here next to a ParkZone UMX Spitfire.



There is a little bit more info, some flight video and free plans for it over in the Baby Baron - Build thread. Article coming soon.

I started on something like this just to try my hand at cutting foam board. I haven't worked on it in a while though. That is the same electronics I was thinking of trying.

Did you remove the paper from the DTFB for this? How much does it weigh?

yes i removed the paper, although i dont have a scale to weigh it on but its REALLY light, i really impressed myself with this one, it weighs less than the 500 mah battery i have been using on it

Yeah, it's definitely smaller than any of the FT Mighty Minis, by quite a bit. We'll see if that still holds true after Peter's Pun Jet comes out next week.

Here is a little cub on floats i built with 3mm depron, balsa and some carbon. It used gear out of a UMX CCSS until i decided to use it for another build. Also a f22 built with dtfb, depron, canopy from an old radian and a styrofoam nose i turned using a drill as a lathe. It uses a champ brick with P51 motor. IMG_8957[1].JPG IMG_8958[1].JPG

Here are a couple more. A 24" rubber powered plane with lifting tail that tips the scales at 1 ounce and a little all balsa job with the UMX Carbon Cub SS gear in it. Both my own designs. IMG_8959[1].JPG IMG_8960[1].JPG
