Here's an RC P30 I've been having some fun with. Topics: the first plan is for the Tubular Bustard P30 (I accidentally call it the Tubestake!), next the Polecat P30, notes on rolling a balsa tube with a doped interior, doping on fiberglass cloth (to save weight, I'm now using Esaki tissue), 1/4 and 1/2 mil Mylar, notes on using carbon fiber rib caps and some precautions, rubberized CA, a demonstration of the Gizmogeezer prop, half-tube with Piserchio hook, Uhu glue stick, Design Master Floral paint, pivoting rudder, Gizmogeezer winder. I also made cardboard cutout panels to test the paint on the Mylar and would recommend doing that. A typical (10 gram) motor for this length motor tube consists of 6 strands of 1/8" rubber about 20" long; the long motor version uses 4 strands of 1/8" rubber about 30" long. For sport flying, add an extra loop of 1/8" and use an 8 strand 20" motor!
Here's a video of this P30 flying:
