I have been posting pictures and answering questions about the building of an Horten Ho 229 in the thread "Northrop N9M Plans Available in Two Weeks." I thought I better start a new thread as I am adding more pictures of the build. For those of you that have not been following along, the specs of this Ho 229 are:
Version: Ho 229 V3
Imel Version No.: Im 6
Target Weight: 3.5 lbs
Propulsion: Two Electric Ducted Fans
Airfoil: Imel A004
Wing Twist: Imel-T002
Maiden Flight Target: December 5, 2004
Complete coverage of the build can be found at http://www.bellimelgroup.com
I am two weeks into the build.
I am beginning to fit the engines to the wing. I have to cut some holes in the leading edge for the air intakes. For now I am working on the exhaust fit.
I am happy to answer questions, so feel free to fire away.
