I had a 40mm AEO EDF setup sitting around with no airframe to put it in so i got busy and started drawing up some L-39 Albatross plans to fit the EDF
The wingspan is going to be 370mm and the length 422mm, the control setup will be ailerons and elevator i took some qick snaps o my plans so far
The construction technique i will use is the sandwiched depron box fuse, then sanded round just like how sloperjoe did the fuselage's on his mig and sabre

Little more of an update, i av just finished drawing up the wing skin template and airfoils (its going to be a super light built up wing usingn 2 and 3mm depron
Also decided on a simple way to drive the ailerons (which are rather ar out on the wing tips ) using dubro micros aileron linkages to a single, double horned 5g servo in the middle of the wing.

I have also decided to do the rear fuse using rolled depron in order to save weight.

Now onto the pictures

And Lee, thanks for subscribing

The other great thing about the Micro EDF is that since my last post, a few minutes ago, I went out back and got in two flights on my Nanospot. I would have gotten a third, but I ran out of sunlight.

No, it was very cloudy and almost dark, so I didn`t try to get video. Looks like there will be lots of sun this weekend. I plan to get some good video, with the camera pointed in the right direction. LOL
