Hey, give me some input.

#2 fh64_lucky May 02, 2012 09:39 PM

Maybee a little droop down in the horizontal stabs?

#3 geostomp May 02, 2012 10:03 PM

Yeah that looks better.

#4 fh64_lucky May 02, 2012 10:05 PM

OK,now you can ship it to me....:D

I'd like to.

Any other input welcome. Thank:popcorn: you

I think it looks cool,what size fan are you planning to use?After having quite a few sport jets,the one thing I wish they had was more room for batteries up front,but still achieve the proper CG.Does not need to be high speed setup,just enough batteries to fly 6-7 minutes without worry.I have enough jets that fly fast for 3-4 minutes...:)

1) The inlets look big to me (compared with the tail cone)
2) With the "Toucan beak" shape to the nose, how is the battery room?

Like the anhedral mod to the stabs!

I'm thinking 90mm with a 40" length and 36" span. 22mm wing for retract options, and battery space directly above the wing and forward. That pushes the fan back into the empanage which should help with balance, especially with a 6oz inrunner. I may route one out in foam via CNC and see how it balances.

The long nose is for looks but will help to keep the nose gear forward. I havent calculated the area on the intakes or added radius yetbut I will and make necessary changes, but the exhaust is about 75mm. The batteries will probably have to be above the wing to make CG, and maybe spill over into the nose for higher power with a heavy motor. I'm a fan of <6lb. 6S setups with unlimited vertical and minimal investment.

Here I opened it in Fusion and it has a more presentable look.

Ok so I modded the intakes and changed the nose and canopy. Thoughts? Input??

#13 Kevin Cox May 03, 2012 11:00 AM

Looks great but I would change the canopy too. Also it is pretty small for a 90mm fan. I found this out with my Plenum sport jet, it landed at mach 1. The bungee launch model wasn't as bad but it was about 12oz lighter without retracts.

#14 Kevin Cox May 03, 2012 11:02 AM

The canopy looks better!

#15 Robert Belluomini May 03, 2012 11:07 AM

If this will be a bungee jet, consider moving the stabs up on the fuse.
Less chance of damage during the landing phase.!!
