Mini BVM Kingcat 64mm EDF

Merry Christmas RCG!! Just cooked this up over the past few days! I blew up a 3 view of a BVM Kingcat to 27", and added a 64mm EDF. The wing, h-stab, and booms are 8mm depron, and the fuse is 2 layers of 1" pink foam, and 1 layer of 1/2" pink foam. Current AUW is 15ozs, paint and WBPU will probably add another 1/2oz. If you guys want, I can post the blown up plans I used

Your plane looks nice. Be interested to see how it files.

Got the hatch done (Finally!) Building hatches has never been my forte, and most of my builds haven't had a functional latch, the hatch has just been taped on.

Really looking like the BVM bird..
I like it a lot..Does the fan have an intake ring?
Your thrust would definitely be better if you had one or could fabricate one.....
Take care and keep the pics coming.................................Chris

Heres a pic showing the intake ring beside the fan..It snaps on and smoothes the air entering the fan unit..It increases thrust a lot more than you would think..If you are not using intakes then you should try to find an intake ring for your fan..You may not be able to find one to fit you particular fan unit..You can even fabricate one from foam..
I hope that helps...
Take care...............................Chris
