    FRCFoamies Alpha Jet MK1


    This is the first build of my Bi-jet
    More details to follow when i have done more testing. Here are a few pics and a quick video
    Features a sliding adjustable motor mount. This plane has no carbon support.

    Wow, boxermad, what a cool concept! I bet it is extremely stable! Looks like something out of a sci fi movie!

    Its something different that I've not seen before. Need to tweek out some bugs that it has. But overall a very nice plane

  8. I love it also but I think it would look cool with 2 vertical stabs.. maybe cuz I'm a f15 kinda guy...but on the other hand I think if you made the lower part of the stab you have already, the rudder. I mean the part inside the fuse, it would be very strong as a rudder....did that makes sense? I typed it and it sound right in my head but now it looks confusing???? oh well hope you understand...And yes it looks awesome.. hope it fly's as good as it looks

    Yes i thought of putting the rudder there to but need to iron out a few probs first they i will add a rudder ther. Its very stable at high angles of attack

    Close in the nose. I'll bet it's causing massive drag for the plane.

    I know why I like this plane.
    It reminds me of the "SPACE GHOST" Cruiser.

    That was spectacular jay! Amazing transformation -great speed, maneuverability and solid high alpha! I may have to do this when you think it's ready..
    That looks like it should be called a "Marauder "or something ominous sounding like that!

    I've got to build something like this some day. All of my builds end up being huge and heavy, it would be nice to have a small light maneuverable plane for once.
