Finished biplane.

I finished up a 28" Echelon biplane from plans. This plane flies great. It does very nice harrier rolls, and torqe rolls. I dont recomend this plane to be flown in wind. It doesnt handle very good in winds.

Re: Finished biplane.

Another job well done, did you cut the foam with a hot wire or exacto. Looks clean from here. I found that any foamy under 10oz, fly like poo in wind above 5 mph!!!

Re: Finished biplane.

also those carbon fiber struts that i put on the wings makes alot of difference to not flex. Also when i set the plane down on the ground behind my dad which he was sitting down on the carpet and told him to dissconnect my lipo that just got charged, he got off balanced and tipped back on the plane, and i heard some foam break, but the carbon rods i put made the plane so much stronger that the only thing that broke was one of the foam struts. and thats it. I just glued it back and it looked like new. Thats a proof that carbon fiber re-inforcements makes a big difference!
