Just when you think you've seen everything! :shock: That thing's pretty weird. So weird it's wicked!
I think you should build one. Looks like an eye catcher. I know I would build one just for the sheer fun behind it. I doubt it'll be very 3D capable but shite can you imagine a Jumbo hovering down on the deck?
Hey, I didn't know there were plans for that. I saw one a few years ago at the Henderson KY fly-in and thought it was just a one-off scratch built from someone, but it looked almost identical to that one. I do remember it was pretty fast and the guy just flew it like a regular fun-fly.
I have a set of plans for the Profile 747. I also had a friend who built one and put tri-gear retracts in it and had it covered in the UPS scheme. He would anounce his flight as "Here is what happens to your packages at UPS" and then do a fast take off roll, jerk it to vertical, climb and do a snap roll or two, then proceed to wring it out.
No offense to UPS Pilots...I know a few of them, and they are great guys.
