Depron DH-2 plans ready

I finaly convinced my self to publish first version of
my design Depron 'DH-2' in scale 1:12

Technical:
Wingspan: 720mm ~28"
Weight: 225-250g 8-10oz
Wing area: 1570 sq.cm
Motor: 70-80W (25g)
Battery: 3S450Mah 20C (45g)
Servos: Rudder, Elevator, 5g (HXT500)
Aileron 9g (HXT900 or better)
Reciever: 4ch (10g)

It has it's vices it's not a very energy efficient pusher
yet but it's a funny and tough little plane built for
rough flying. Bushes be warned

Practical: Be sure You get the line of thrust correct it should
be paralell to the wings, no side or down thrust.
CG middle of wing or more forward. Safe start 1/3 from
leading edge. Land with thrust this is NO glider!

Very nice. Lately I've been interested in easy to build sorta scale models like this one. Thanks for posting the plans, hope to build one some day, but in front is my own sorta-scale B-17.

Thanks! I will update / publish a new version with wooden wing
struts and streamlined fuselage (less drag).

It's a even more rugged plane and looks a bit more scale too.

Added some primitive non scale floats on it just for fun it worked like
a dream. I believe there is few biplane seaplanes who are easier
to fly and are fully aerobatic.

Hope You publish Your B-17 attempt too!.

I will publish the B-17, although I expect it will be one of those long, slow projects.
