Stormchaser 60

Hello!

Opened new thread to have more things in one place .

Stormchaser 60 is next generation of SC models that I build.
The first was plank model Stormchaser that I made several years ago and it was all handshaped.
This time i wanted to make something a bit biger, faster and CAD designed :P .
I made 3d models of plugs which were milled from MDF...



General spec:

-Wing span: 60"
-Wing area: 25dm2
-Aspect ratio: AR= 8.6
-Airfoil: PW51 mod.

Hi Simon,

well done, looks like you made your first generation stormchaser even better. But really jealous I get when I see where you did the maiden.

Greetings Bjoern

Giving and receiving knowlage and help is one of best parts of rc groups , none of us would be building if it wasn't for the brains trust helping us all along the way.

Hi Guys!

I went flying today with my friends. Forecast was so bad that i wasn't sure if I will take my 1.9kg SC with me..

When we came to ds spot the weather was really bad,we came into a fogg... i got my foamy wing with me so i actually ds in a cloud,frontside flight wasn't possible any way .

Later,the weather gets better with wind speed around 8-10m/s, great!
I took my SC60 and move CG backwards litlle bit and maiden flight went really well, I noticed that the model is having really beter energy, great!

The best we get on the radar was 180mph

I also "rent" the model to my friend he make some frontside laps and starting walking to the backside,i asked him if he wants ds,and he say yes ...
It was funny he newer DSed before and got 150mph

Great day i really like the plane!


Best Regards !
Simon
