Yup, I set the new club record, 144" and made of foam too! Well made of foam, plywood, and aluminum. May I introduce you to the "Barbie Bus" my 144" flying school bus.

Thanks for the mention on the show, and welcome back! The reason the landing was so abrupt was due to the left motor burning up.

The bus has now flown 8 times. I almost lost it on number 8 though. That pesky left motor decided to give me a scare when it LEFT the airframe shortly after takeoff while still trying to climb out. The plane rolled left 90 degrees and pitched forward right at the ground. Thankfully that kfm3 wing glides well, because I was able to correct and glide back in and land with no more damage than a broken bumper and a bent front axle. Now it's time to put it back on the bench and go through it tip to tail. All the hot glue is coming out and being replaced with foamtac, and wood glue. The paint is getting touched up, lights are going to be added and I'm going for a detailed undercarriage. Of course I need to replace the missing motor (we never found it) and while doing so I'm going to replace both motors. I may even consider jumping up from a two motor setup to a 4. Time an money will tell.

That's massive build. School bus design is a unique idea.
