Very fine detail in the (google sketchup?) 3D thing. Looking forward to the swing wing mechanism........

Yes, this is google sketchup.
I wonder. Distance between the points of rotation in the wings is large, about 14inches. And, on the plane, they turn only wingtips.
Maybe instead of making mechanism as the F-14

I'll do a separate mechanisms for each wing.

Few pictures from building
Wing with kfm2 wing profile 6+3 depron (insulation) foam

Framework

And completed model.



This only a prototype. She will not fly. I did it only to examine the correctness of the design and for test gliding.

Today I did test glide for different swing wings.
Su-22 CoG and swing wing (0 min 28 sec)

The center of gravity has shifted to about 2cm (0,8inch) to the rear for the minimum wingspan ..

Position 0 - max wingspan CG is 425mm (17in) from the back
Position 1 - min wingspan CG is 405mm (16,2in )from the back
I wonder if in the final model will have some meaning.
Maybe is sufficient a small adjustment with elevator.

I want to do vertical stabiliser like in real plane, as panel.
I have seen this solution in F15 by GWS.
I use 9g servo to this.
Su-22M4 test stabilizatora (0 min 45 sec)

What do you think, is would be good? Maybe it's better to give a stronger servo?
I want to control plane only by elevons. There would not ailerons.
