We are currently working on a 60'' Fairchild Metro-III depron prop plane that includes retracts, flaps and dual elevator servos. Here is a quick preview with two videos!
A 1/14 scale (49'') version will built by CEO Keenan Smith shortly.

We expierenced a fatal anomoly while conducting futhur testing on our DC-9-10 depron EDF jet. After some analyzing of the video, it seems the pilot put the plane in an accidental stall while executing a foward-slip.
A new DreamFactory jet will be built soon!

The DreamFactory's scratch-built DC-9 EDF jet had a successful maiden last June, opening up new product opportunities.
It is powered by twin 70mm EDFs (1500 watts total) and includes electric retracts, flaps and dual elevator servos.
Construction is depron, wood and CF.

As well as 3D foamies and pattern planes, The DreamFactory also focuses on the rarely-touched subject of airliners. Our website manager (Ethan)is currently working on a 1/20 scale 60'' long DC-9-15 in Hawaiian colors.
Keenan (CEO) is also in the design process of a 1/22 scale Boeing 777-300ER.
The DF can make any custom airliner to order!

Well i am Beta Testing this plane for flyrace of China
the plane is called the Dolphin - C F3P
the Specs Are as follows:
Weight: 120-150g RTF
Price: *Unkown at this moment in time*
2x 5g Servos
1x 9g servo
1x 4 channel Reciever
a 200-400mah 2S Lipo
a 6A ESC
and a 1084-2204 Brushless outrunner
Stated build time 2hrs
Actual Construction of this plane from box to Build was around 2-3hrs
the manual was Great, lots of pictures and very little ching-lish, there was also plenty of carbon...( i had enough leftover to re-enforce the nose)
it also comes with these handy little guides that ensure the Fuse is built Sraight and level, thus when combined with the slot together *and Glue* construction Technique
Makes for a Rather Easy build
this plane is very light, so i will need to limiit my throttle otherwise i'd have a 5:1 power to weight ratio on a 2204 motor an 8 inch prop
a Leftward front view showing the Wing bracing bracing
a few things that i didn't like however was that, the paint chipped to easily... (only cosmetic), the landing gear was a little too Flimsy and Bends a little too much for my liking (under the load of 3 servos, a 370mah 2S lipo and an Rx), the ailerons Warp to much at around half - Full Deflection ..
and that the was not Quite enough Pull Pull Wire
However Flyrace has Told me that Due to the model i recieved being a Pre-Production Model, He Can assure me that he will include more Pull-Pull Line in the Production models as well as Thicker Carbon for the landing legs and some carbon to Stiffen the Ailerons (as they are prone to Warping)
I will upload a flight video When my electronics arrive and i have installed them onto the plane
Until then Keep an eye Out..

Probably was not the best weather for flying, but i tried anyway.
as you will see in the video i the Motor mount Came off just after launch Resulting in the flight ending before it even began

it is Designed for indoor Freestyle & AeroMusical Flying and outdoor Hardcore 3D Flying
it is based around the Techone C20 motor & 9x5 Prop (Both soon to be added to the webstore) but i have made the nose moment slightly longer than Standard allowing you to use Lighter Gear if needed.
Here are the Specs
Span: 800mm (39.5 inches)

Been building this lil bugger whilst waiting for components for my other larger aircraft to dry almost done, it has a 16" wingspan and i packing 40mm EDF thats chucks out 214g of thrust on 3s. **Donated By Nitrocharged of www.nitrocharged.com **
Just waiting for the new AEO rc 40mm 7 bade EDF rotor to arrive until then this lil bugger is on hold, any who i just need to source out a V-tail mixer ** Recieved V-tail mixer, Was Donated by P51P51 From www.wingmanrc.com **
Plane Is now Complete Minus EDF Rotor Which is on its Way! not too long now
To Do list
.Fit EDF Cover
.Fly (and Film it!).Paint
Without Canopy cover
