Having seen these up at the field and all over you tube i decided to see what was out there regarding cheap level entry dlg foamie style.
Not much to choose from I'm afraid so i opted for a combination of designs from all over the net
specs to date are
40 inch wingspan kfm build with step on bottom at 50 percent
29 inch length
three 4.7 gram blue servos
tail feathers made out of 6mm depron lightened and covered in good ole packing tape
rx is a cheap speccy 6 channel
auw with a 2 cell 300 mah lipo and added mini ubec comes in at 6 ozs all things considered its light
i could have knocked another oz off had i gone with the full carbon boom but i used what i had at hand.
initial glide tests show its running true and floats forever ( had to force it down twice as got to far for me to walk)
more to follow on this one .
I have the plans here ready to go its a simple build if you want them I'll pass them on
