That's my main sidekick! He is offically the designated Test Pilot of Team Abby Normal and my son both of which he excels at. My job is to create the unflyable and then he makes it return from a maiden to only needing adjustments vs. rebuilding. That truely makes us a team...
I worry about this and that, but the heck with it!
It's better to have failed attempting than to have never attempted in the first place!
I never been one to follow the beaten path.
Yes and everyone thats ever flew a cub, but there are quite a few differences that can't be the same when going to this scale. For exsample the power system won't scale up by weight. So I won't have that for c/g concideration. I am tring to build as large as possible and to keep the weight down as minimal as possible with that the design must be altered. So I know this won't be the sweetest flying plane out of the gate but all it needs to do is fly for one weekend and its creation will be worthy. Science and engineering concepts must be trusted, because following a proven plan is for sissys!
No I will not be painting the plane yellow, real men can fly pink planes. Besides it adds reality to it being mostly foam. As for the wingspan 25' plus. If you watch the last updat again take a close look at my son Eli. Eli is 6'6" tall. Look real close at where his chest lines up with the leading edge as he is standing next to the plane. 75% Scale....thats some crazy stuff right there.
