Beautiful model--too bad it pranged at the end. Looks like the cg was a bit too far forward. Why not build a big Hun and try that--you know they fly.

I've built five so far! 300% scale and a catapult?...

If I used a bladder I would have to stick the wings directly on the outside of the body instead of through it to leave room for the bladder.


I will print something for an office build 8)

(In regards to pic above)
That looks like it might make for a nice model, but I wouldn't want to take off like that.

The best size for this experiment is going to be @200%. At that size I can build at work while the comp is rendering and use a smaller bladder to fly it during lunch. 8)

The big question is Camo or T-bird?
