Hello folks,

I bought a sharma 3.2 cc diesel engine in december last year.
i never had a plane for me to put it on to. Searched many sites to get a compatible airplane size. I did not find any, so decided to build a plane around it.

I just could not find time to start the build which was kind of frustrating. So one fine Sunday while flying with my buddies I happened to crash the plane into the river.  Sad. It was a faulty reciever. The plane was beyond resurrection, I had drowned all the electronics and drenched them totally.  Roll Eyes

My dead coro plane left its main wing and its tail assembly for me in the will.  Wink

So now finally i had some stuff ready for my diesel plane. I built a fuse with 6mm ply and a tail with lightweight pvc pipe. hooked the engine up and while tuning the engine cut my finger too. Cry

So what i mean is i literally put my blood and sweat in this and here it was ready!!

Wasnt sure if it would fly , coz i found it a bit heavy  Undecided

However yesterday it proved that it could fly. started the engine and threw it in he air. It just flew like a charm. Although it was windy, its extra weight, that i tought it carried, helped it to cut the winds  Giggle

The roar of the engine attracted extra attention from the people nearby  Wink

It was just a marvel.

here are a few pics...

will upload a video the next time i fly it.  Hats Off

Very nice...  Thumbs Up

You could further reduce some weight by making incuts in the ply... the lighter the better  Thumbs Up

suggestion noted. I am building a profile plane as a next project. Waiting for an ASP 52 for that.
Will definitely incorporate it there. Smiley
