8 degrees seems like a lot of downthrust - interesting.

What is the target airfoil that you are using for this wing?

Beautifully engineered!The splice below the tail particularly caught my eye.

Airfoil

Hi gentlemen,

The airfoil is the old cj3309. I like this airfoil because of the flat underside. It is very easy to build and the speedrange is also wide enough. I am using that successfully since more than 10 years. In combination with this airfoil and the distance between propeller and CG is the 8°down thrust neccessary.
I do not like a model which rises up at full throttle. With this configuration stay the model neutral and accelerates horizontally.
Tonight i will post the next pics. Because I am at the moment at my workplace

Manual

Hello,

Last week I finished the manual for the future short kit (for europe). Here you can see more details from the new construction system. Unfortunately in german. but it is made 80% by drawings.
