Odd but true, it is an indoor flyer. Drag plates are to keep flight speed down for indoor flying.
Seems strange but true .... Happy New Year

It's 17f and i'm home today, too cold and too tired to play disc golf, i'm suppose to be cleaning up the workshop so i can get some building/repairing done.

Looks like some one blended  " having fun with foam"  and the art of origami together!! http://www.paperfolding.com/.  Nothing wrong with that, looks like indoor fun when it's too cold or windy to fly outside.  Airplane

That's a beauty, Eric.
So, Mark, how's it fly? Looking at my plastic Wright Flyer I'd swear it couldn't fly. Even after figuring out which end is front. But it does very well.

It is a mutated profile! I knew it would happen!

Slabby sides have started sprouting more slabby bits and they have carbuncled.

Keep it away from your other planes! It may be infectious! Smoking

lol, i tend to agree with you on this one, but they do fly so nice.

However all is not lost with the current generation...here's jr's built from scratch, using scaled up (rubberband powered) Me-109 plans. I'm pretty impressed, this is his third build and other then a few questions answered, done by himself.

I hope I don't sound sacrilegious to some. Can't be any worse than my Estes Cox .049 Star Wars Y-Wing Fighter. With only a 9.5 inch (241 mm) wingspan and pusher prop and 2 oz lead nose counterweight, one would wonder how it should fly. Happy New Year

They call this an airplane? Estes_10

I do intend sometime future to build it, but it certainly won't be able to do more than round and round. Devil

If I were to modify it by putting say a Sure Start engine in the nose with nose spinner, it would probably do more justice. Tired w/ Coffee Read tongue

That type of plane is used for Indoor F3A Precision Aerobatics Competition. I have built and flown those types of "Foamies" in the past for Fun Fly and 3D use and they actually fly like a dream!
