I 'll gonna make also a prototype, which should be an exact aerodynamic copy, but only smaller and less heavy. The real thing will take half a year to finish, so need to make sure , although the wing planform is not shocking new.., but thats obvious not the project challenge.

What type of size are you thinking for the prototype compared to the actual airframe?

I try to get the cubic wing loading the same for the prototype.
This determines the wing area, and the scale down factor.

The proto will a simple handtrow version, since weight is about 600 gram.

That sounds pretty close to the same thing I hope to accomplish with my test model.
600 grams that's pretty lightweight, I take it your thinking of using something along the lines of a 35 mm df unit for it? That should give you a pretty good approximation of scale for power as well.

Was thinking of using a normal prop.
I know the prop adds stability to yaw, so I ll compensate this with winglet sizing..

If you use a prop size the motor so you have about half the power you will use for the DF unit, that will give you an idea of how the performance will be with the DF because they are not as efficient as a prop drive setup.

Thanks for the links!
Never installed it, seems a bit of work to get it right.

Wings connected to fuselage with carbon formers, 2-3mm thick.

With the tail pipe shown in the first picture it looks like a rocket ship.

Fuselage building tabs added to the model.

Idea is to put them in a building board.

Still not building a prototype version, should better be doing that
Meanwhile figuring out what the thickness should be of the carbon former.

I tried to calculate the maximum G's the plane could pull with a 2.5mm thickness carbon former, which would be 6.4. Good enough ?
