Only if the battery is fully charged, leak a few volts and it'll be fine.......

Actually it';s not that fast for a Pylon racer but for the airframe it only costs the price of a sheet of foamboard, a length of 9mm dowel and some 3mm birch faced ply ( and some hot melt).
It';s very simple to build and parts needed to complete are cheap.


I';ve printed the plans and once i';ve got started on it will post a few pics. There are two build vid';s on YouTube so guidance is available.


It looks to me to be a great cheap introduction to model aircraft that go that bit faster!!!

That looks cool Darrell be interested to see how you get on. This may have to go on my todo list

i know i have many other planes etc, but the foam homemade ones are so much fun, no worries if you crash, i have a good few sheets of Depron, will make this i think, i also made two and doubled up, a lot sturdier and takes the wind slightly better.

Depron sheet or foam board, best things ever invented :)

just brought this one from my Mums last night, was the last one my Dad made before his Motor nuerones became to much.

That looks a lot more elegant than Mickeys, his really has a lot of power for how well it goes so not that efficient; that said it';s a foamboard Pylon racer and it works!!!

yep, will defo make that, i like that look of it :)

just printed it, so off we go after tea :) should only take an hour . but good test for the new glue gun :)

Wont be doing all the faffing with all that rod though on the Ailerons, not needed really, but will also add a 3mm depron support down the rear vertical to the tail. just for a bit of extra rigidity, will post pics when done :)
