Is this made mainly of Planking, like one of the Tony Nijhuis Vampires?

I've yet to study the plan Ron but think I can safely say yes - flat sheet surfaces - Nigel's speciality.

Hmm, looks as if it's probably an easy build. I wonder if I can get a non-building foamy electric only friend to finally make something?

Looks nice, can I see control surfaces on the canards?

If it's one of Nigel's designs it's bound to fly nicely, just a pity it must have been submitted about the same time as Richard Harris's "UnCanny" which is pretty similar , though I reckon Richard's model is the better looker.

Now i do like that ,

And when i seen it i thought i had see that color scheme some where before and it does have a similar look to the Eze Fan .

It looks both sporty and jet like .

Nice one Nigel yes .

Really keen to build one of these, can't wait for the mag to come out!

How many Watts does it need?

Not Shure but looks like a 200 watt set up to me , and must be all of four sheets of balsa in that .

Seeing this has piqued my interest in a canard slope soarer. I think its called a Valkyrie, but I cant find any info let alone a plan.

Does anyone know what I'm talking about?

Best I can find at the moment is this cached page

Ian

OOoooppsss, in English it's this page

Oh, and page 3, para 3 onwards of this pdf might be interesting.

Perhaps this should all be in another thread now?

Thanks Ian

Your link had a plan number, I called Traplet (shhh) and the plan with associated mag article is on its way.

Not sure when it will get built, but its in the pile.

Got a 300W set-up from a foam-e Wot 4, not sure if the motor has enough kV, too much power?
