The AeroSonde (first two pictures) is:
  • 118cm wingspan
  • 22cm wing chord
  • 76cm length
  • 550g-600g weight
  • powered by GWS EDP400 (Mabuchi 370, 6x3 prop). Can fly with 5x3 prop too
  • 200g 9,6V NiMh battery pack (I have Panasonic 1100mAh and Saft 1400mAh)
  • The 15 degree polyedral wing is very stable and easy to control even on stall speed
  • The 100 degree inverted V tail has good handling as elevator and rudder.
This is very easy to build and to fly, can make tight turns and has a good soaring and can do level flight with with half power

The construction plan is in http://planeta.terra.com.br/lazer/Ae...aaerosonde.gif. Since I has no CAD software, the plan was made with paintbrush, with a 1mm/pixel resolution.

The Wplane (last picture) is:
  • 120cm wing span
  • 24cm wing chord
  • 70cm lenght
  • 500g weight
  • powered by the same motor and battery of Aerosonde
  • 120 degree inverted V tail
This is a parking lot flying wing, because is very easy to fly in small places.

The plans are in http://planeta.terra.com.br/lazer/Ae...antawplane.gif

Both plans are in portuguese, but since the most of words are measurements and equipment specification, they are very easy to understand.

I am a newbie both on RCgroups and on flight. I learned to fly alone, so both models are built to be very easy to fly, hard to break and keep the motor, propeller, engine, servo and electronics safe in crashs. I never broke a prop with these models, even after crashing a electric pole or the ground.
