Welcome to the build page for my "Full Circle Flyer" RC plane. This aircraft was inspired by the "GeoBat" full scale plane invented/designed by Jack Jones. Scale RC plans were downloaded from RCgroups.com here.

I decided to decorate and name this plane in honor of my new dojo, Full Circle Martial Arts Academy.

Short list of materials/components are as follows:

  • 6mm sheets of white Depron Aero styrofoam from RCfoam.com
  • 6mm carbon fiber wing spar tube from RCfoam.com
  • 1mm x 3mm and 1mm x 5mm carbon fiber strips from RCfoam.com
  • Fiber reinforced clear packing tape
  • Five Electrifly ES50 nano servos
  • Three Dubro micro pushrods
  • Dubro micro EZ-connectors
  • Futaba 6106 HFC 2.4Ghz Receiver
  • Phoenix 30 amp ESC
  • E-flite 450 Brushless Outrunner Motor
  • 10 x 4.7 APC SFP pusher prop
  • Thunder Power 3-cell 1350mah 25C LiPo battery
  • Misc wood and fiberglass scraps
  • Epoxy, Gorilla Glue and 3M Adhesive
  • Velcro and double-faced tape
  • Water-based Acrylic Craft Paint
  • Vinyl cut graphics

Below is the basic process of the build in chronological order...

The final size size of the plane is 33" in diameter and it has an all-up flying weight of 24 ounces including the battery. I will follow up with a flight report once flying season returns here in snowy Ohio.
