    The plans show a 2″ elevon, should it be 2 1/4 or does it matter?

  2. Eric Says:

    Your parts list does not include a speed controller? And prop saver?

  3. Eric Says:

    What’s the best way to get the 20$ parts shipping…. Email , call … Some of my emails have gone unanswered…. Thanks for the help!!! Can’t wait to build!!!

    Apologies for the delay. We will resolve this next week. Please be patient, we have been overwhelmed with response.



  5. Eric Says:

    Thank you for the help in advance! Looks like it’s going to take a month for my parts to come in anyway !

    Any detail on lighted plane build? Power? El wire? Led,s?

  7. FJ Says:

    Cant find any 1/4 poly board! Trying 3/16 foam core artist board.
    First fly is not too good 😦 motor mount broke ( angle )
    Piece of alum works. Fun stuff.

      3/16 foam core will be heavy. You might try removing the paper from one side. If you are around New York City I have foam I can sell you.

    Couple of questions (Pardon me if I have overlooked something on other posts):

    1. Is there a list of structure materials that have been attempted and flown with some degree of success?
    2. Has your design flown in a glider-only configuration or is electric power required for flight?


    • brooklynaerodrome Says:

      1) We and others have flown with cardboard–pretty heavy. I have used
      the 3/8″ pink fanfold as well but again it adds weight.

      2) It is a pretty bad glider. It might be an ok slope soarer and we are looking
      into developing a better glider version–most likely we will have to get rid
      of the delta wing.

    Does the foam board have to be split in half? or can you start with a full one? Also do you still sell used parts, kits, and other things that will be needed?
