drew these up myself, but you can take a scale 3-view and goto kinkos and have them blow it up to any size wingspan. you can also go to the indoor pattern part of this site, or the 3d flying section and download plans and print them to any wingspan size you want.

Hi, made this in Feb 2009.... been flying well indoor and outdoors on calm days...

loads of info, plans and video of it in the following thread.

http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1015416

Only mods I've made are replaced carbon tube u/c for solid rod...removed the air brakes, put some tiny GWS wheels on in place of the balsa ones...

Fly it on a 180mAh lipo...should be ok on the new 138/150mAh parkzone types as well....

Settled on a gws 5x3 prop

The Toki bio wire servo worked out well but the new pz linear one should be a good replacement.

Still flying great..

If you build one , please let me know how you found it or any suggested mods.

Cheers,

Shaun

hey guys,
these both use the ar6400, but neither is 4 channel...
only one is brushless also, i just had an extra laying around for the horten type wing, anyways the canard weighs 20 grams rtf, and has 40 grams of thrust from the brushless motor, and a 5 by 3 carbon propellor, controls are thrust vectoring, for the rudder, and the canard moves for the elevator, the horten is powered by two aero ace motors/propellors, both fly at just about walking speed, and very well, i am extremely happy with both, but a lesson learnt here is, when flying a thrust vectored plane, that relys on only the rudder and elevator, do NOT throttle down when your going to hit something and try to turn hahahaha

Mine's not really fair:

Kyosho Minium Christen Eagle

It was R/E/T and I added Ailerons with a Mustang Bellcrank and perked it up with a Sukhoi motor and 5043 Prop.

My recommendation is that if you come across this plane set BUY IT. This plane is a ton of fun w/4 channels (with 3 channel, it doesn't want to turn).

My only complaint about the model (besides not being available in the US) is the wing decals are all wrinkled, which spoils the look. If parts were available in the US, it would be easy to fix, but right now I don't want to mess with it, because I wouldn't have any idea where to find a replacement wing.

Nice UNGN! How well does it do acrobatic-wise? The Chinese woman that applied that wing decal has a beating coming

My only flight with it so far it wouldn't roll clean, but then it turned out I forgot to glue the wing struts back together. I'll try to fly it again this weekend. I did manage to pull off a snap roll on the first attempt.

Inside loops are 3 - 4 feet in diameter from level flight (tighter than my Vapors and much tighter than any miniums), the one one outside loop I tried turned into climbing inverted flight... which it did reasonably well and it eventually pushed over to upright without rolling out.

With 2 undercambered wings, its no Sukhoi, but its much more stable and forgiving and can be flown in a smaller area.

Ryan;
where did you get the plans for the canard?
Likewise for the Horton. I'm looking for a couple of slow indoor flyers.

OK; here's my most recent work.
I've just switched over from using the PKZ3351 brick to the AR6400 since I could never figure out how to swap the rudd and ailerons channels of a DX7.

AUW is currently 61g with the following added to the standard rubber powered balsa kit.

AR6400
Falcon servo for ailerons
YGE-4 BL ESC & BEC
2S 240ma hand made battery
AP05 BL & EP5030 prop

Hi Mike,
i do all of my own plans, as i get more enjoyment out the planes this way,
i dont' really plan on giving them out after what has happened with some of my planes being sold by hobbycity.
anyways, they're both my designs, but sorry, don't want to give out plans,
ryan

MikeW9: Your plane is adorable! You can go more easy on the balsa next time you build a micro, you coul use half amount of ribs. Pm me if you want help with the chanel switch (you use mixing to get it right)

:O I am gobsmacked! Why can't Parkzone or E-flight come out with something this nice? Are you running brushless? I may have to go get me some durobatics!

Yes Brushless. AP03 and a 3A ESC.
I made it with 0.5mm durobatics, im trying to build one with 0.25mm but it might be to thin and fragile.

Your making me spend my money! This will have to go at the bottom of the list though. I'm needing to finnish my 16"WS F22 and then start my Micro indoor 3d yak!

If you post a video it may move up on my build list
