Inter sequence isn't good because that was the end of the batteries, there was not enough power to climb.

820mm and only 120g ?!?
 
Anthony,

Il n'y a rien mal avec votre anglais ! :p
( I wish my French was as good ! ;) )

You model looks GREAT - C'est magnifique ! :D
Is ALL that foam 3mm depron ?

I like the longer models with lines that look similar to the larger
engine-powered pattern models.
The F3P models I have lately been designing have similar proportions... ;)

Your closed-loop ailerons are VERY impressive - similar to how the Fokker E-III wings were warped - but with fewer pylons ! :cool:

What are you using for your closed loop 'cables' ?
Can you adjust their tension ?

Keven. :)

Keven,
The exact name of the foam I'm using is Climapor, significantly lighter than Depron about 25%.
My cables are made of steel thread and kevlar scabbard.
Yes I can adjust the tension because the cables are not glued.
They are kept in place by "jubilee clip" (I don't know if it is comprehensible in english)

That was very nice work in the video...well done :)

Anthony,

In England, "Jubilee Clips" are what are used to hold water pipes to the engine and radiator under a car bonnet... ;)
What you have are referred to here in the UK as 'crimped cables'.

Thank you for the information...
Where can I get some Climapor ?

A Google search returns very little of any use... :rolleyes:
Have you an internet address for the shop where you got that which you are using ?

Keven. :)

Anthony,

I was wondering about the thickness of the foam that you have used - it looks to me to be 3mm.
That light weight ( moins du poids ? ) is excellent - for 3mm depron - and so it is not a surprise you have used something else... ;)

Keven. :)

Tres bien Anthony!

#8 AnthonyF3P Jan 14, 2008 11:46 AM

Thank you for compliments.
Sorry I don't know where you can buy that foam in England, I don't buy it on internet. You can try to search "Extrupor" it's very close if it's not the same as Climapor.
Yes the foam is said to be 3mm but it's 2,75mm

Anthony , your Cirrus F3P plane is very beautiful . My own plane the Swift looks very alike your plane and the measurements are also very close . My ready to fly weight is 141g this is with a 20g EVOLITE battery . You have doNe a great job in getting your Cirrus weighing 120g and it flies so graceful ! again well done and may you have many many flights .

Richard

Thank goodness someone else knows what a "Jubilee clip" is. For over 20 years now, I have been the butt of derisive comments from "friends" in Maine, because back in 1984, the first time I went to repair some water pipes on our summer island, I asked for Jubilee clips to assist my Heath Robinson repair - hoots of laughter at my kiwiism ... and they still remind me of it, every single year!

Anthony,

Thanks for the pointers... I searched again... using "Extrupor". Only Czech websites with vague references to 6mm - and car rentals... :rolleyes:

I have lots of different foams - but neither of those you named.
I think I'll try something with 2mm depron - for now...

Keven. :)

Anthony,

What is the CG you are using on the plane in the video. Looks like a winner! This will be my next F3P build.

Also wanted to know if you are using any 3mm x .05mm flat carbon on the trailing edge, or any kind of spar besides the underwing bracing?

What size CF is used for the wings?

Thanks for the design.

#13 AnthonyF3P Jan 24, 2008 07:16 AM

Mini Ifo,
I think CG is a personal choice, to have a neutral behaviour 27-28cm (10,6"-11")
from the nose is a good start.
For wings I use only 1mm carbon rods as you can see on photos.
Many plans have been downloaded, I hope that you are not the only one to begin building. :)

Anthony

Thanks anthony,

I seriously doubt that I'm the only one building.

We may even do a club build of your model to introduce others to the joys of indoor flight, if you don't mind. The new folks need something easy and slow, and the F3P planes are perfect!

#15 AnthonyF3P Jan 24, 2008 09:28 AM

Of course I don't mind.
I think CIRRUS is a good choice to start F3P, french constructors say me that it is very easy to fly.
I am impatient to see photos and videos.
What setup will you use?

Anthony
