The power of C.A.D.

This is what happens when I get my hands on C.A.D!!!! And this is a pic of the RC plane I am in the works of designing. I dont have the ratios to make everything the proper size so I had to estimate. I plan on having it done by the end of my school year in September.

I have been interested in RC planes (cars, boats, etc) for awhile, but mainly for the RC part. I am more into the electronics than construction of any kind sadly (you should see some of the "boxes" I housed home-made meters and such in LOL). So, I don't really know much about aerodynamics or anything...now, if we are going to discuss RC frequency and manner of propagation, then you are more in my ballpark.

that i am not to good at. (the stuff in your ball park)
Well, I should say "was" in my ball park (anyone around that still remembers when frequencies were measured in "cycles n kilocycles" and then dropped away from it for a long time, understands what I mean). Can I say "morse code"? (just barely LOL)

I thought people would look at this

I have been working on this for about 10 hours and I think it is looking good.
