    Concepts only: Doodles without numbers

    It's hard to see... there are gripping claws tucked up in. good for cargo fly-by snatch and grabs, and alighting on most roof parapet walls. :p @REVAN - have you considered building one as a RC Glider? (3d printed in LW-PLA), looks like a great bird. Also have you looked up the Prandlt-D NASA...

    Lincoln Sport Bi-Plane Plans

    I am going to ask some possibly dumb questions. I want to State first that I am just beginning to look into the build aspect of flying. As such I have not done some detailed homework yet. As I have limited space to start (not uncommon I'm sure). I have wood working knowhow but structural...

    Lincoln Sport Bi-Plane Plans

    My friends great uncle learned to fly with lindburg when home and build and flew this plane. This looks like a fun garage build. Is there an advantage to using traditional materials, or does this look like it might benefit from advanced materials and building technique?

    RC Pilot journeying to a full-scale pilot from NC

    So at the moment, my homebuilt goal is to build for myself a kick-around plane. something for me to enjoy flying. at the local airstrip. (there is a strip down the street in Eastover NC.) Funding I know most folks get uncomfortable with money, but I want to know if the funds I have set aside is...

    RC Pilot journeying to a full-scale pilot from NC

    First off Thank you for the warm welcome. The plan was to build a plane to have as a fly-around. But time-share /club part ownership a family traveler, to effect the weekend visits. I guessed that for most people, a plane is an expensive house accessory that mostly sits dormant. Even an...

    First off HELLO! Thank you for letting me poke my head around here, and learn. Short Intro: I have quickly progressed from a guy with a young family and no money or interest in flying to one with a passion for aviation, and a love of building RC Aircraft inexpensively. I have recently (2 months...
