The plane itself is so small and heavy you could make a biplane out of solid balsa wood and still have weight left over :roll:

high key considering making my entire plane out of wood just because the stupid 8 gram rule is back
also ik you guys already mentioned this but... the prop is smaller than ever before
also can someone explain the difference on how to manage a biplane and a monoplane

Looks like the trick this year is making it fly in both directions. And, you know, actually making it fly with a microscopic propeller.

The very small propeller, clockwise/counterclockwise flight, possible multi-wing config and very small stabilizer are interesting challenges. Lots of testing required this year (as usual).

K,

Lots of biplane trim and design info in RCGroups forums. Try google searching “biplane static stability calculation”. This configuration is rarely used in indoor freeflight. I posted Chris Goins “Double Trouble” Plan in Hip Pocket Builders Plan section under Indoor/other classes. Also, see the “20+” unlimited penny plane design in Indoor News and Views “Winning Indoor Designs” download.

Good luck to all,

Brian T

Been waiting for biplanes to come back! This should be fun, especially with changing the direction pretty much being required to be competitive.

thanks for that info brian
one question - does it seem like a better approach to go on the biplane side this year??
