Jeff's Blu Baby Trainer

Jeff's Blue Baby Trainer
Very easy to build and fly

I was into radio controlled aircraft about 20 years ago but when the city decided
that we needed another golf course more than a RC flying field I lost interest.
Recently I got interested in electric models and I found an internet sight called RCGroups.

I found the plans for the Blue Baby Trainer that is made from Dow insulation foam
called blue fan fold. It comes in a package that when unfolded measures 4 ft. by 50 ft.
and is about 1/4 inch thick. Here are a few pictures of my flying foam airplanes

I used a built up wing

I used a 2 inch Monoblock
for a wider Fus.

Krylon H2O paint

The Monoblock makes this a very tough plane it just bounces and cartwheels when I goof up.
For reinforcement and hinges I use a very shear polyester materal that my wife uses for
trim on curtains and attach it with Liquid Fusion glue, MinWax Polycrylic paint
or the Krylon H2O paint they all stick good to the foam.

Lots of room inside

Battery compartment

The next one I will put the battery compartment in front of the landing gear
Because I tend to build heaver than most people and I needed some weight in the nose.

Wire for control horn

Heat shrink for coupling

I use .032 music wire with heat shrink tubing for a flexible coupling for the control
horns and connection from the servo. I use a Emax 2228 950KVM brush less motor with a
30 amp speed controller. It flies well with a 2 lipo 1500 mah battery and flies very well
with a 3 lipo battery.

Polyester material

I use the shear polyester material that I got from my wife for reinforcement of wing center
section and for hinges. I attach it with MinWax Polycrylic paint or Liquid Fusion glue.
