    Hi Larry;
    Do you have any plans for the paper airplane?

    Hey,

    Do you still have your Medusa 36-60-1600? Want to sell it and hoe much?

    Thanks,

    Brian

    I'll bet if you took the Mega Capricorn to an air show, it would keep more attention than the giant Yak's.

    Hi RC, I have several large foamies in videos on the water, but your probably talking about the Mega Capricorn. Its my favorite plane :)

    Yeah, I saw that video before. They did a great job!

    Larry,
    Is that blue plane the Capricorn on Youtube that is flying over the water ? I got some good laughs at that video. one grabber is the slomo loop-flips. And at some angles it looks like a shrimp.
    Like to build big blue foamies ? Some people made a 9 foot wing E-Starter clone.

    For tricycle gear planes the general rule of thumb for main gear placement is as follows.

    cant attach a pic!

    Draw a vertical line thru the cg down to the ground. Then draw a second line from the CG point to the point where the mains sit on the ground.

    The angle between those two lines should be no more than 20 degrees max. 10-15 degrees makes for much smoother take offs. I prefer close to 15 degrees for fast flying models,

    Too small an angle makes for a plane that may rotate to soon and take off before your ready. It can also lead to porpoising on landing.

    The plane may also want to sit on its tail when the battery pack is out of the model. That drives some guys nuts but doesnt bother me.

    Gear set too far back will cause the plane to be very hard to rotate. Once it does reach flying speed it may suddenly OVER rotate and go vertical and stall.

    As with most design parameters - its a balancing act :)

    Maybe start a new thread and we could go on there?
