Hi all, I made some strange works of roughly A-6 size and construction. Next week I will put another blue curvy one that warped badly, this one is rather warped by design.

Here it is before covering. The warp/curve of the "wingtips" was after building; I brushed it with water and taped the part of it in question to a large cardboard tube. I had to say quite some spiritual chants during the process to get it to follow the curve.

Top view. It's basically just a circle with a not-quite-circular hole.

Looks like it will fly to me, if you get a bit of incidence between the front and the back. If it's intended as a tractor, I think you might need a fin in the back. If it's a pusher, maybe not.

Thanks, that Clem ministick is definitely in the same spirit, especially with that (I assume) gratuitous stepping on the prop. Here is the other oneā€¦

These show the severity of its warp (despite stringently pre-shrunk tissue), but I have a better feeling about this one nevertheless. I struggle to make time to fly these days, but if I learn anything, I'll let you know.

Andy I still have one of your helicopters you sold on SFA  ways back. I gorilla flew it at a Philadelphia Flyers game it went straight to the rafters in the Wachovia center, then flip flopped all the way down. Amazing that I got it back.
