I had a big mouth and tried to build a plane just out of garbage and Tape overnight. this abomination is what came out.
At first I thought it was way underpowered, but actually the wind was very harsh and a few hours later the strongest storm since 2008 hit the area and caused massive damage. So maybe this warbird wasn’t that bad?
oh and the quote in the end translates like this ” what about you crank it up to full oommpf!?!?”
Starting to fly modell planes is not easy.
They all come down to earth..thats what I learned very fast.
This little Plane gave me a ton of fun and the realization that a broken plane just means an oportunity to build another one! The plane still exists in hacked and heavily modified Hangliding Camera holding Fashion, but I had no real chance to fly it that much.
Look at this Huge RC Horten Wing, designed after the never built giant Horten Nurflügel Transporter ,you could probably heard of in WW2 class.
A quick demonstration of the controll surfaces.
This huge hunk of foam did not fly that well due to a lack of weight in the nose department. but just as the originall it is more of a controlled glider towards earth than a proper plane. Maybe i give that another shot someday.
This one has found its hangar in the trashbin, but I salvaged all the usefull parts.
The 8-Bit Line of ATARI Computers was very popular in the 80’s in the US but not among the european enthusiasts. This particular machine is a Fleamarket find in Austria (Commodore-Land), and was a pretty uncommon treasure.
Take a look at the innards of the machine! I haven’t managed to get it back running yet it has some bad corrosion going on and i had no time to fix it for now..but someday it will be restored in some form or another…
