Here you go. The wing is built from FliteTest plans. The extra is from RCpowers and the Cub is called the BluCub. All three fly great. I have retired the cub as it has been repaired so many times, served as an excellent trainer for me though. I have also built a few others but cant find pictures at the moment.

My latest project. 28" flat foam version of the Extreme Flight Outlaw. Two versions, one mild, one wild. Elevons and rudder. One has an HXT 1700Kv motor with a 7 x 5 prop and the other a magnificent Micro Dan 2900Kv motor swinging a 5.5 x 4.5 prop. 6mm depron with a 9mm KF2 airfoil, Createx yellow/black and Wicked colors red.

Hope to have them flying next weekend. I've done several other versions and all have performed well, I expect these to be the same.

Hey Barn-E,
These look pretty awesome Do they fly as good as they look? Your own design or do you have a link to some plans? Thanks!

The Depron Stik is just something I came up with. It is a 3 step KF airfoil and it does fly great.

Here are some night foamys I wired up for my friends getting ready for Wally's Squadron. Lots of night flying.

That's awesome Barn. You're the king of lights for sure!

What's the dimensions on your depron sticks? Looks like they are made from 6mm depron? Thanks

The wingspan is 39" and the chord is 8" with steps at 3 and 6" measured from the LE. The ailerons are 1.25" wide. It has a 6mm CF tube between the first two layers for a spar. I don't have a fuse at the moment. I think it was slightly longer than the wings and made of a 6mm Depron except for the bottom which was light plywood. The landing gear from a Mini-Ultrastick works great. I will build some more of them this winter and post.

The wing is very tough and will wear out several fuses.
