"SegevDesign" ARTiculate freestyle biplane

Hi Guys,

Very happy and proud to share here my latest creation, almost a year gone by working on this from an A4 paper drawing my brother and I did to the first flight.

The detailed design was done by a professional aeronautical engineer, who when not flying R/C design the flying machines that keep us safe and free.

The ARTiculate, design to be a freestyle weapon, with all the benefits you get with a biplane design.

*very unique construction combining composite and wood, to do only good.

*Design to fit 10s-12s setup electric OR DA35, OS33GT, DLE 35/40.

Website,price, final weight, and size will be updated closer to the final production model

I will keep this thread updated as I go along


"SegevDesign" ARTiculate biplane (2nd prototype shown) - flown by Ido "DoDo" Segev (4 min 56 sec)


Fun flying,
Ido Segev

That is a gorgeous airplane Ido! It looks like it flies fantastic. I love the size, design, and covering scheme.

Thanks for the kind words guys!

I got plenty of questions from RCGusers about "How stable this thing, does it wing rock???"

So, I thought it will be good to mention that that ARTiculate technical design was done by none other then a full size aeronautical engineer, who when not flying R/C design flying machines that keep us all safe and free.

It also been a year long project to get to this point, from the first A4 sketch we did

I attach two more videos, both of the 2nd prototype, showing a bit more of the capabilities.

We got the third prototype flying this week, and I will keep this thread updated as we go along!

4# flight with the SegevDesign prototype ARTiculate - flown by Ido "DoDo" Segev (3 min 22 sec)


ARTiculate 2nd prototype - Extreme winds testing - flown by Ido "DoDo" Segev (11 min 31 sec)


Happy flying and soft landings
Ido

Some great flying and the airframe looks very capable!

Might I suggest a video performing some high energy stuff, there has been glimpses here and there in the videos shown so far. As you would be aware the flavor of the month is super high energy/XE so you need to try and show some of it's capabilities in that area to try and appeal to that market as well.

Hi guys,

Update :
This week we are starting to produce the airplane, and looking for dealers world wide, please contact me for any inquires

Specs are :
Wing Span: 1900mm
Fuselage length:1980mm
Weight 5060g(Electric setup, without the lipos)
Required to finish 7x 10kg+ servos
30-40CC engine
10-12s electric setup.

Color scheme design was done by Ray Younger from "Illicit RC Design" based in Darwin, Australia, and we will offer two color schemes for the ARTiculate


POWER COMBO
Our good friends from DUALSKY power systems are putting together as we speak a combo pack perfect for the ARTiculate, it will be a "plug and play" power system. (http://www.dualsky.com)
It also the system I use for testing and flying, and will give the end user the perfect setup for 3D and FreeStyle flying.

Our website will be release soon
Cheers
Ido

The Buster was design by the same guys, almost two years prior, so if you look for a true 3D stable full EPP airplane, the 3DBUSTER is for you.
