Default How about a Giant Scale Foamy

Hey guys, I have been working on this project for 6 months now, I have been cad ding up a 25% Votec 322 foamy made of 6mm and 3mm depron with the goal of building it at no heaver AUW then 4.5lbs. I have just plotted the final templates on full size 30"x80" sheets and will begin cutting tonight. This will not be a "overnight" project but the goal is to have it built, flown, and tweaked by no later then July 4th of this year. which is my B-Day! I will then offer the Cad files to the Company of my choice so they may kit it for all of you! I Imagine it will not be a ARF do to the fact that it will most likely cost too much to have somebody assemble airframes, crate, and ship. The Goal is to have a bird built directly around the E-Flight Out runners, This one will use the 60 size motor. to try and keep the cost of a Giant Scale E-Powered bird REASONABLE...... The only thing I have not made a decision on is whether or not the wing will be a traditional build or Foam Core, I'm leaning toward the traditional rib and stringer construction with 3mm sheet. Please post your thoughts on the wing....... Here is a screen shot of what we have to look forward too..... Take Care Chris Mc Nair

I will enjoy following the progress of your project. But not to nickpick but that isn't a Votec. A votec is actually based on a 2 seat one design. What you have there looks much more like a velox.

Votec:

How about someone make a hard core 3D Helo for a DA 50 or something like that!!!!!

Why dont they? They have bigger than .90 sized rc planes, just not helis, they would probably require different engines than we have for our big planes but it wouldnt be too hard would it?

Gang 5955's together for the rotors?

They already do. A guy that lives here has one with a G38 on it that will 3D. Do a search on Gas helis.

That plane has stalled. John, the new owner of 3D Foamy, has the files for the fuse, but I don't think he ever aquired the files for the wings.

I was one of the original 5 that were to receive kits for testing from Levi. After the sale I think the project just got put aside. I understand that John will be looking into this project, but to date, there is no new news.

It would have been a sweet project to be involved in, I'm patiently waiting to hear from John.

Chris,

I think that a 3 and 6mm structure sheeted with 2 or 3mm would be plenty strong and much lighter than the foam cores. A few carefully placed CF parts for strength would be awesome also.

Great project, I'm very interested!!

Yes your thinking like I am! I have a guy that is going to donate the foam sheeting. He is sending me a test sample for evaluation, Hopefully it will be a good sub. for the 3mm depron. Once I am starting assembly I will start posting pics. Later Chris

Big Pink!
Here's a plane I did a couple years back...
Ryobi 31cc powered.
http://www.crazyherb.com/FOAMIEDESIG...NK/BIGPINK.HTM
Construction photos:
http://www.crazyherb.com/FOAMIEDESIG...nstruction.htm
1 inch and 1.5 inch Foamular 250, lite ply, yardsticks....

Oh ya...on the "Gas eats foam issue"
Keep the gas where it's supposed to be and you'll never have a problem.
(putting my "smarty pants" on)
I don't purposely spray my plane with gas, do you?
I've seen glow fuel do a number on balsa too...oil soaked is just as bad...

I'll probably do another 3D (flat-wing) type when I get time...(giant gasser shockflyer) would be cool...

Or...I do have a MDS 1.80 sitting here too...Hmmm...
