Forward swept, Canard, Pusher...Raiden

Hello Friends.

I've been working on a new project. I think I've stumbled on to one of those happy accidents. She's a Forward swept pusher with canards. I built her from DTFB in Flitetest Fashion, I'm sure you could adapt the plans to your building techniques. I used a Sunny Sky X2212-9 1400KV motor with a 8x4 prop with a 2200mah 3s battery. It will fly vertical forever on this setup so I'm sure whatever 1000KV to 2200KV motor will work. She flies fast, slow and inverted well.

She's 38 inches wide and 39 inches long

I use a carbon arrow for support in the main wing and a 1/8 carbon spare in the canards.

Many people have been good enough to share with me and help me along during my beginnings. I can't help but give back.

So here's my Raiden. I hope you enjoy her. Plans are in the link below.

PS please share any mods or upgrades with me. I sure most of you have better ideas than me.

Kudos for your plans. They are awesome! You went the extra mile with the assembly drawings. Mad skills sir... Would enjoy pics of your finished model.

Thanks;

A little reminiscent of the Su-47, Bercut Russian jet.

No they are not. they're set at 4 degrees. yes it is a lot of fun, it has a really large speed envelope.
