Idea
1910 Coanda

I am planning to do a build for the 2014 Ohio Dawn Patrol. I am not a seasoned builder but I have built a few unique aircraft. Over the next few weeks I will be putting plans together to attempt my representation of the first ducted fan fixed wing. When it starts moving into power system development I hope to be able to get suggestions from the collective.

Nice. I've always loved that airplane.

Please post pics of your build as you progress.

I will switch to a build log once I get the 3 views together. I will need to scale to a power system and wheels.

For its time this was a fascinating attempt to get off the ground it was underpowered but my understanding was the Henri Coanda had put a compressor fan on a piston engine and was then burning fuel in the efflux. It didn't generate sufficient thrust but it was a seriously advanced bit of thinking for the time and did produce more thrust than would have been available from just the engine. However it only flew/hopped once or twice.

Right now the difficulty is obtaining enough clarity in the 3 views to develop a workable set of plans.
I cannot imagine sitting there in the jet wash. It had to have been uncomfortable at the least.

Yes but it led to him discovering the Coanda effect the flames you see sort of followed the fuselage shape very closely so he reasoned that something was making that happen and went and played on the top of a train in the smoke with shapes to see and yes sure enough the shapes make the smoke bend round them.
