OK my Foamie Blog "Fame at last ?"

Posted 02-13-2008 at 01:51 PM by theglennster

My first Blog by orders of the DOG

Just in case you Freaks don't know me I'm Glenn from the UK and besides flying helicopters one of my other many hobbies is flying foamies.

Currently I'm working my brother AKA Mr Flash on RCGroups to get his model designs in to a UK model publication RCM&E so far three models are going to be featured I'm doing all the design/CAD work. The first of which is going to appear in the March edition, this is top secret don't tell any one

The first model to appear is called a Maniac, its construction is from EPP foam which is very crashable (unlike my T-Rex) but can do the book as far as 3D moves is concerned but the beauty of this everything happens in slooooowwwww motion so you don't need mega skillz to be a top pilot. It is powered by a small AXI brushless motor with Hitec HS-55 servos and a CC 10amp ESC, fuel being supplied by TP 730mah 2s lipo.

Anyway here's the Maniac, I own two versions the yellow one is my original that's now well over a 1yr old the blue and orange one was made as a test run for the magazine although the magazine feature will now use the original after all.

If you want ? more Blogs are to follow on the development on the next Top Secret foamies to be published in the following months.

Thanx for looking in

Cheers
Glenn

    Wow Miglet I've never see one of those before. I've just checked out the Electrifly site I'm even tempted to get one of them myself.
    I can't see them being that hot at doing torque rolls and it certainly would not go down to well at my local indoor venue, the club politics would have it banned in seconds
