I think the problem might be supporting the two wings on such a small

How about a ducted fan SS biplane with the engine between the two wings and a twin boom setup like a p-38 twin rudders and 4 ailerons.... ummm have I lost my mind

Tried the 9x4.7 over the weekend. I can definitely tell a drop in performance. I measured the 8x6E with the watt meter and got 14.5 amps static, 148 watts using a TP1320 3S. Amp draw is probably slightly lower in flight. I'll stick with the 8x6 for now unless I have another failure real soon.

Now, that's what I call a novel concept.

That one is by a guy called "boomer" over on RCGroups. He is the ultimate Slow Stick perverter. He is the one with the 8 motor (yes, I said EIGHT MOTORS) version. He has tons of pics and vidoes posted over there. Some of that stuff is just jaw dropping awesome.

I'm sure it does. I'm not saying it won't work, thrust is thrust and if you flail away with a little paddle hard and fast enough even a battleship will move. But it sure takes a lot of energy.
If you could gear reduce your 400tx to turn a 10 or 11x4.7 at 5500 rpm I think you'd see amps drop by 30 to 50% and slow speed control would be much crisper with more air pressure on the control surfaces and quicker acceleration on throttle up.
I think...
therefore I am...
probably an idiot...

Ok. Have you checked amp draw on the 8x6E? 148W is too much on that motor I think - the limit I've seen is more like 10A.

Oops, the measurements I gave were for the 8x6E. I did not measure the 9x4.7. Corrected my original post.

One of the guys at Hangar Hobbies in Sterling, VA has nine (9) GWS IPS "A" on his Slow Stick. While it flies nicely, it sounds like a hornet's nest in flight. Weird looking as well. He also has a clipped wing version of it!

Not at all. That's more original than the Slow Stick canards.
Edit: I just saw that P38 Stick on page 2. Very nice! I have 2 geared Feigo 12mm LPS brushless setups laying around. Maybe a Pico P38 Stick? The LHS has one right now for 20 some bucks.

It's on the list I have one wing and some parts still left over from the last build might be a fun one to fly

Come on now, I ain't too bad either! Who do you think coined the phrase "Slow Stick Perversion" in RCG anyways?

I like that twin boom version Are you using 1 or two servos for your rudders?

You could take that center aileron cutout and make a flap out of it! Probably wouldn't need it but it would look cool.

The "Double Stick" only uses one rudder servo. I put a spacer bar between the two to steer them both.

Video is here: http://www.dawnpatrol.iwarp.com/photo3.html

(Not direct links, but will get you to the RCG thread where the video is)

More pics of perversion here: http://www.dawnpatrol.iwarp.com/photo5.html

and all the perversion you would ever want to see, but were too afraid to ask is here: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showt...&page=65&pp=10

Hope that helps!

Oops, didn't see your second question. Yea, you could make the center a speed brake, but I think it would just get in the way of my bomb drop box, or camera, or my jato rockets .

I already have flaps, and when the ailerons didn't work out ( they suck on a Slow Stick wing), I made them into flaps as well. Take off rolls realy short now and she floats in for a landing

Take out the polyhedral and the ailerons will work great.

One of our flying cabal has an aileron equipped SS. Flies really well. Rolls etc. Inverted flight and so forth. Still floats in for landings too.

Naw, I like it just the way it is. Besides, who has time to rework old ideas?:p

On to the Slow Stick flying boat and the Ducted Fan Stick
(So many ideas, so little money...)

Hey Bob,

How are you? I see you found your way over here also!

In all fairness, you must at least give me credit for posting a pic of one of your planes (Sopwith Bipe).:p

Stay away from them lightpoles man!
