Froggy is mulling nicely in my head and is turning into a sort of plan there which is going to differ a little from my original drawing.The more observant eye will note that it is going to look surprisingly similar to the Meteor turned upside down with a cabin on top and a seaplane belly and the addition of pontoons I will add the drawing in due course.
I managed to break the nose off the Meteor which is a shame, but such are the perils and normally I would just glue it back together. However I have never built or designed anything to fly off water and so I thought I would have a little go a designing something from scratch to use most of the componentry out of Meteor. I think a little investment in brushless motors might be required.
Anyway so far it looks a bit like this. It is not necessarily going to stay this way but so far I like the lines.
I have been thinking about a way of using the brushed 51mm lightweight fans I had, that went into the original Orangebird prototype/ development model, and were now doing nothing as I had used brushless 12mm motors in Orangebird.
I determined that I would try and build a 24" wingspan Gloster Meteor more or less, for twin brushed set up. I must be mad, but they could become brushless in time. The thrust/ intake tubes are sort of experimental and the idea is to try different things with them. So I scaled up a three view and started to cut some EPP that was lying around including the original Orangebird prototype to liberate a few servos and esc etc.
