Default Eastwind Models

I didn't see Eastwind Models in this thread.
Low cost plans for a number of different designs.
I just built the PF Cruiser with first flight on Saturday.
Nice plans and with the construction notes on the web site it's not that much more difficult than building a balsa kit.

Ron, how about Alpha Foamies, http://www.alphafoamies.com/cgi-bin/commerce.cgi. Line of EPP foamies, 3D and Vintage Bipes. They all seem to fly well, I know that my SE5 does and it takes a likin and keeps on tickin like an old Timex.

I found a site www.luft46.com , 3 view drawings of German WW2 experiment aircraft.
Descriptions vary whether the airplane flew ,wind tunnel tested or never left the planning table.

I have mentioned this site several other posts includin Paperairplane's thread for full fuse models. http://wp.scn.ru/en/camo
alot of good information and you have to check out the "paper models" available for free downloads. transfers really easy to scaled up balsa or foam. I enlarged 400% for my patterns.

Default I showed my drawings to the doctor

If any one needs a drawing made (no 3-d crap.....Im just not that good) from a sketch, PM me and I'll be glad to make a .dwg of it for you if I can. 15 years ago I was a pretty good draftsman, and I still play with auto cad some.

Hi Cdr,
Well, I guess my downloading skills aren't what they should be...I was wrong, sorry about that!
I asked the Mods to check and several confirmed that the files can be downloaded without registration.
Sorry about the mix-up, my error!
I'll add it to the list.

Default Bede BD 5?

Helo Freeflight1,
Here's a couple of sets, first from WiktorS2 on RCG, post # 13;
http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=54300
Click on the plans and you'll get a tiled set. You could have these scaled up or down.
Then, a plans set from the RC-Store, 36" wingspan;

Good Luck!

Thanks Ron, those plans are exactly what I wanted. I had looked over the construction thread, and stuff about plans and a short kit, but did not find these. The short kit appeared to have long ago stopped being produced.

Thanks again,

Doug

Doug,

Windrider just recently released their 32" WS BD-5:

http://www.windrider.com.hk/product.asp?id=164

Free shipping until 12/25, not a bad deal. Much easier than building one from plans too.

Default Scratch building

There is one of my problems, I keep buying kits, but I'll see plans I like, I blow them up and start scratch building. So now I have a lot of kits and a number of unfinished scratch built projects. Thanks for the info though, I will check it out. Is scratch building caught by breathing to much balsa dust? LOL

Default Dust

I'm old school love that balsa, but foam does have it place. Even I have an old all foam MRC glider I think it is call Young Star or Star something or other. The British do some good things with a mix of foam and balsa construction too. We're builders though, we will use cardboad if it fits our need. You should see my toliet paper roll Gee Bees.
