Ha.. being honest I'd have to go back and look in the physics file. I may be bad but I don't worry much about that part I'm a simple RC plane guy, not a scale guy. This is a model of an RC kit which mostly use simple symmetrical airfoils. I just looked and it's NACA 0016, so is that a bad choice.. and why if so.

I got quite a bit done since the last time I posted so I thought I'd drop by and post a couple of renders for you. I finished the 1x1 mapping and just finished the first pass of the color scheme I'm doing for it. Doug's doing the stock color scheme and I'm doing a nice little scheme I ran into on the web. So they'll be a couple of color schemes for you to play with. I think I'll head off to bed so here's a couple of renders.

I've been looking to get a real RC plane to "fit in" more at the local club field (27 helis). I'm sure I want a biplane now with these in development and the new Big Red MKII you gave us. I love how a biplane does snap rolls.

It's coming along nicely. Rain all day today here so it's sim only.

I gotta find something to edit or play with in it today.

I knew this was familiar...

I kept looking at this and thinking I have flown this plane before (or something similar). Turns out I was right.


This model was created for RealFlight by Doug Kaye (DHK79). One of the old Masters. I miss the old guys sometimes.....


Your Great Lakes Special looks great though.

Yes I noticed the seats. something about it looked familiar, the tail section I think. We still need more Biplanes though so this one I look forward to flying. The 2 seater seems tame in the physics. I dunno if you have flown the other Doug's Great Lakes, but how are the Physics compared to yours? The other Doug as a rule is pretty good with physics since he pretty much wrote the book on real life physics years ago.

I hope he doesn't mind me calling him the other Doug , I see him on here from time to time so I know he checks in.

I actually have that plane and yes he did a great job on it. All of his stuff is great.

I have DHK79's plane and have flown it a fair amount. The answer to your question about how the physics compare is I think the new one we're working on is very aerobatic and fly's great. But the best comparison is what you think after you fly it.
