Indoor Bu 133 Jungmeister

OK, I wasn't really sure where to post this - is it scale, 3D foamies or here?

Just for a laugh I thought I would give this a try, its 825mm span made of 3mm Depron.

Its got big Rudder, Big Elevator and four ailerons so could be scale pattern or 3D. The proof is in the flying and something I wanted to do a long while ago.

Yes I know Aerolite but as Andy says it could be scale pattern or 3D, the next indoor meeting will tell.
Certainly the idea is to achieve one or both of them and as the full size was such an aerobatic master, I thought it worth a try. I have enlarged the chord of the ailerons, otherwise this is a true scale outline.

Here's some more pics, whilst I have an outline on AutoCAD, I am sort of making up the construction as I go along, so who knows what it will turn out like

My only concern would be Aileron response but the proof of the puddings in the flying
Perhaps some supersize ailerons may be required to turn it into a freestlye machine but I dont see any reason why it shouldn't be nice and precise for simple F3P work if the weights kept down

Yes aileron and rudder response is my concern, but you don't know until you try I suppose, we'll see.

What is the weight at this point? What motor and prop are you going to use?

Beautiful!

Hovering will be a problem without ailerons in the prop wash but apart from that it should be very capable even if not competitive.
I look forward to seeing and reading how it turns out.

Good luck,

Aidan

P.S.
Any chance you could send me the AutoCAD outline? I'm starting to like this idea!

I agree Aidan I think some lazy indoor aerobatics with the "meister" would look great

Flying Glass, It is 66 gms at this point in time. I am going to use a Hacker A10-9L with 8" x 4.3" GWS SF prop, as that is what I have kicking about spare.

Aidan, yes I had considered that but I thought I would try it 'scale' first and see what happens. It wouldn't be too difficult to cut out and make some near full span ailerons if it doesn't work. Next indoor meeting is 6th Jan, so we will see.

Aidan/Andy - What version AutoCAD do you use?
