A Foam Based Full Contact Combat Model by Jerry Hagood
Jerry Hagood and his friends are having fun flying full contact combat matches with foam based electric powered RC model airplanes. The size of their models is ideal for smaller flying venues. The key to their models is light weight, inexpensive components, quick build time, easy repair, and most important a high fun factor. Presented here is the combat foamie design developed by Jerry over a period of several years. This is a great design for organizing full contact combat matches with your friends and club mates.
A model built from this plan package has a wing span of just under 23 inches with an overall length of 20.6 inches. The total flying surface area is 345 square inches. The total flying weight will depend on the materials used, the selected motor, and battery pack.. The total flying weight should not exceed 8 1/2 ounces.
To make sure the plan package can be printed on all generally available printers it has been set up to print on 8 1/2 by 14 inch sheets of paper (U.S. Legal Size). The plan package includes an illustrated assembly guide, and full size part templates. It is important to note that you should have any print scaling (print to fit printer margins for example) turned off when printing the content of the provided Adobe PDF file.
