Lightweight corro cub

Here is the lastest addition to my lightweight correx park flying collection.

Span: 1m (~40")
AUW: 450g
Power: E-max 2812 with 7x6 prop and 800mAh 3S Lipo
Construction: 2mm correx with foam fuselage formers, balsa wing ribs and CF spar. Plus some other odd bits and pieces found in my garage. I've tried to keep it as close to scale as possible without losing the simplicity of SPAD.

Would be 20g lighter if we could get yellow 2mm correx here.

Flight is stable and slow, just as a Piper Cub should be - perfect for the local park. Takes off from grass on not much more than 50% throttle and cruises happily on 25%.

Twin corro parkflyer

Here's the latest experiment. Its basically a Partenavia P68 with a Twin Otter front end (the P68 front does not do it for me and the Twin Otter has struts and complex engine nacelles, so took the simplest elements from both!).

Used to test a few concepts that have been at the back of my mind for a while:
  • Folded wing trailing edge for neater ailerons (big improvement on the conventional method)
  • Large flaps to improve landing performance (works very well)
  • Castoring nosewheel and differential motor thrust for ground handling (works like a charm)
  • Complex curves on fuselage (still needs some refinement)

All 2mm correx but with 3mm foamboard empennage and scrap foam formers.

Maiden this am went very well - very stable and able to fly far slower than my similar sized Mig7 and Spitfire. Power to spare.

Specs for maiden flight:
  • Span: 1.25m
  • AUW: 875g
  • Power: 2x Emax2812 with 8x4 counter-rotating props and 1300mAh Lipo
  • Wing loading: 10.4oz/sqft
  • CWL: 6.0.

Very nice! Can you explain more about your aileron build method?

Electric V-tail Gnat

This is my first attempt at any kind scratch build or spad. I based the design off a Gnat. Built from extra parts I had laying around. Fuse is 26" 1/2x1/2x1/16 aluminum angle, motor mount is 1 1/2 angle, and landing gear wire from a PZ Extra 300. Powered by 3536 Turingy POS electric motor...lol. Come Saturday we'll see if it flys or dies! I predict it will fly about as good as a boat anchor. Whatever? It's cool!

Looks like pretty high incidence on the wing. Be careful for ballooning when you take off.

It is a 1.5" length piece of 1.5"x1.5"x.125" aluminum angle. First I mapped and drilled hole pattern to match the motor, also counter sunk the holes. Then cut off the excess material on one end and rounded the other end on a belt sander.
