PLANS ARE NOW COMPLETED!!!
And they look fantastic if you ask me!
Although these plans are complete, the prototype is not. I'm not ready to release these at this time.
March 20 2015. Currently I am drawing up the plans for the Formula 1 Reno racer GR-7. I've always liked this design ever since I saw it race at Reno. This model will have a 40 inch wingspan. It's very early in the design process. This model will be powered with a Mega 16/15/3 on a 3 or 4 cell lithium batteries. Speeds on 4 cells should be quite spectacular. Stay tuned for updates. :)
April 30 2015. Plans are now complete/printed and the aircraft is waiting to be built. I have all the balsa wood I need for 2 new pylon racers. I'm trying to finish my new ebook first, before I start another project. Can you tell I need a builder to help me with all my designs, hint hint. :) The book is going great and I am now in editing phase. I hope to release it soon.
Here's a picture of the full size GR-7 yanking and banking on the course. What a plane with that wide wingspan!
Here's a picture of a model of the GR-7. The old Formula 1 models were beautiful imho.
