Default Looking for BARCLONES in the wild

I'm trying to update our Wordpress blog, and I'd like to know which BARCLONE designs have actually been built and flown? I am aware of a few besides the ones I've built, but I need to find out what additional models are out there.

If you've built one of the many designs we have listed, please give a reply here and describe your flight experience with it.

Thanks in advance!

Default Cloud Tickler

I found this thread from last year and was shocked that no one had replied. With all the BARCLONE designs, no one else out there has taken any from pixels to reality? I was in that group until today. So having ordered parts for a few a while back, I went down to the shop and assembled the Cloud Tickler. This is from the original design posted a few years back.

Shamefully silly question, but, has it flown?

Nice build! Any idea which way you'll go with the finish?

Has not flown.

I also have the parts for the Nightwing, after that is built I'll heat up the garage enough to paint them (current OAT in the 40's).

Have either of these been built previously that you are aware of?

Nightwing will be flat black.

Your original .rkt file was all white with a gold nose. This is what I"ll do:

No, just had to think about it...

How about using the French Aerobatic Team pattern?



That way, if the stability isn't exactly right, you can still claim authenticity from the resulting flight profile...
