Giant Foamie

This was a project I designed and built for DWFoamies in 2012, it was to be used in advertising campaigns and trade shows while we were on the road. The construction is 6mm/9mm Depron and 1/8″ lite Ply, the hinging is done with a carbon rod and fiberglass pivot points. The airframe came out incredibly light, total all up weight was 8 lbs and a wing span of 84″.

The motor is a Cobra 4130 -16 with a 390 KV running on 6S 3700 Lipos. Unfortunately the foamie had a short life, a Team pilot had radio failure on its 5th flight while test flying.
