Chris Foss Phase 5

Post by Mike F »

I have heard that the Chris Foss Phase 5 is a good all round sloper.

I purchased the plan and AMT fittings from Chris Foss Designs and here's progress to date.

Thanks to Barry for adding the photo.

Ah does that take me back - had some years of fun with one of those. Liked it much better that the later 6.

Make sure to make provision for ballast if you're building it as plan - mine flew much better loaded up, I had it permanently loaded.

Hi Robbie
I think that Chris Foss also fixed an additional 8 oz of ballast in his competition version.

Hi Andy
Thanks for the link. The foam wing looks like a time saver, but I have started cutting the wing ribs (sandwich method) so I'll keep to original plan.

I will probably use 4 servos in the wing rather than the coupled ailerons.

Will post more as progress continues.

Mike
