This is a RF8 model based on my second custom plane. For an extra challenge, this time it was a biplane, the Foam Board Biplane.
The real world build was for my own education, and hind sight being 20/20, there are certainly areas where there is room for improvement!
For example, as is often the case in a first design, the real model does weigh more than I'd hoped for.
The real world FBB has been jointly developed with its RF8 version. So, as much as is possible, the RF physics match those of the real model in weights and dimensions.
At the time of its posting, there has not been an opportunity to maiden the real model, so some of the adjustments made to the physics for good flying characteristics, such as K.E. flight, may not be as accurate.
As the real world model did turn out a bit heavy, there will be a "FB Bipe lite" AV--- it should fly a bit better.
