Robbe BAe 146-100 / Avro RJ70 - complete rebuild!
since my A319 is on the edge of being airworthy i´d like to introduce my new project - a Robbe BAe 146-100 or Avro RJ70.
This has become a very rare model so I see myself lucky to own one.
The model will be powered by 4 Freewing 70mm EDF driven by th450 brushless outrunners. Each unit is supposed to deliver 900g of thrust at roughly 500 watts. The AUW i´d like to realize will be around 4kg which will give a very strong thrust/weight ratio 1:1.1 !
The RJ will also get flaps and retracts. If the weight is lower than expected i will also take a lighting system into consideration...
First of all i would like to show some photos of today´s condition. I did start a couple of months before with the engine nacelles and the wing, so there is some progress already. But there is still a LOT to do!
Also, this build will have a very slow rate of status updates - this is a long-term project. After all this is a very rare model so it needs the right amount of attention and time to not mess it up.
