Depron JSF F35 :or my first EDF
I now feel like I'm far enough along to show my current project. This build is inspired by great work demonstrated by my fellow ezoners. I can only hope to one day be as good as they are
By the desire to try my hand at an EDF model. If this doesn't work I can always buy a FS F16 to learn on
I'm using 3mm Depron and Blucore (It's still a foamie after all!)
Some 1/16 lite ply.
5 min epoxy
1/8" carbon tube, and slightly larger aluminum tube
I used Rhino and 3 views to generate a planform based on the F35 C model.
3mm depron is used for most of the plane, Blucore FFF used for some formers and motor mount.
Wemotec Microfan/Astro 010 combo.
3S TP 1320 Lipo
21 inch wingspan. Full (semi-symetrical) airfoil.
Estimated AUW is 10 - 11 ounces ready to fly.
With the top off, holding the plane 3 inches above my digital scale I see 10oz static thrust. I expect this to decrease when I close the top up, but it looks promising.
