Nice stunt plane (full fuse Cap.. extra...) type platform

A while ago i bumped into a nice Bipe build... "Micro Ultimate" excellent plan.. cheeers to whomever it was that designed it...

.........................so i built a bigger version:



flies great... so built about 3 different sizes from 600mmWS to 1100WS..

then built a midwing version..............




That flies great to...(needs bigger ailerons..but great at speed)

so am now using the same fuse platform for an extra style midwing @ 1170mmWS

as you can see ..a fair bit bigger....
Hers a few pics of how shes going together so far....





will be the biggest WS i have made to date...

if she comes out OK i will post the tiled and untiled plans here somewhere...

Not sure if the PA Thrust 20.... or the 30 should go in it..............?

Have done a fair bit to it now. Carbon in tail and set... The whole plane has been hot glued so far... That hot glue is cool stuff...

Hole in wing tip where sharpened carbon tube came thru


Guides for wing hole fuselarge cuts.... and also inner supports... helps to make these before the wings are joined...just trace the widest part of the wings.



Get approx position with them on outside pins
Once holes in fuse are cut they become supports





Got carried away and forgot to take picks while making the cowling..... a bit rough and simple but looks kinda warbirdish and cool... will have carbon exhaust ports soon...that will look very cool i reckon


ailerons are proving to be a challenge... havent done any this thick before.... I wanted them to have alot of travel forslowflying hovering and 3D etc but they dont travel much yet...enough for speed runs but not slowflying... Help here would be nice.. Anyone Know a technique or have a link....???????


Pretty happy with it so far.. big at 1170mm wingspan..looking cooler than i expected... about 20hrs into it sofar... but alot of extra....

"how the hell am I going to do that" time in between.. This is only my 7th scratchbuilt... and only been flying about 6 months....so far from knowing it all


Also .....going to try a 281220? Himax on 4 cells...or maybe a Thrust20-30 on 4cells (4s 25c 1750)

Anyknow the typical amps draws?????? prop size?????/

k... finished and maidened.. alllmost perfect maiden.. a little heavy landing.... to slow then she stalledbout a foot off the ground.. very little damage...
very happy with it tho...



Flying weight is 750 grams.. is that light for a 1200mm WS plane..????

360 watts
34amps
281220 himax (i Think only rated to 20 amps)
40 PA esc
11x5.5 APC prop
and a 3s 2200 zippy... was sucking it down to 10.5 VM and WOT....!!!



so yeah....veeerrryyy happy with her flew great... veerry responcive but stable... very big to fly in the paddock beside my house... very fast too when you give it full throttle... i lost the cock pit at one stage and the drag was instantly apparent...

like i said plans go up here when i figure out scanning... they are basically micro ultimate plans with a extra 300 wing.... thanks again to the guys that desighned those 2 plans.....
