Hello everyone
       Yes "Ice-cream sandwitch" is the name of my home made plane  Giggle , it is almost similar to avispad, one of the major issue for building rc plane for me was unavailability of Bio-foam and it is also not available online, only option remaining for me was cardboard, thermocol and small sheets of coroplast  Bang Head . Here are some pics of Ice-cream Sandwitch  Giggle . you will come to know why i give it this name. I am beginner before this i have tried two planes 1.) Russ40 2.) Sloflyer28 but Russ40 did not fly and sloflyer was really horrible with 20mm thermocol. I want help to get complete flying model. Suggestions are welcomed.  Smiley

Here i have cut out some pieces to reduce the weight. My plan is to cover the model with cello/packing tape so that cardboard will not absorb moisture.

Corrugated paper tends to have a low strength-weight ratio. Anyway, good luck! Looking forward to seeing the final completed model and flight video Cheesy

Cardboard plane will be too heavy if you want to use it as an electric plane unless intended to use big motors. You can use only styrofoam to build electric plane and that will be very light, can be finished nicely.
For wings, you can cut a 2-4 cm balsa wood strip around 10-12 cm long and put that as a joint between wings.

you would have carved a wing out of styrofoam, it would have been much easier to build..

Retreat, Hell!



Nice flight there!  Thumbs Up

Why did you cut the take-off and landing scenes? I really wanted to see that landing gear in action!
Really good job considering the materials you have used! Inspirational! Bow

Could you post the details of the complete power system you have used?
