It is a bird type glider, the motor is mounted in the neck. 2.3 m spann. The fuselage is made of fiberglass and the wings made of EPS covered by glass. As soon I finished the FPV equipment and paint I will post a video of the next flight.
Robert,thanks for the reply and for the video.It's good to have friends like Videler .I am sure your disquisitions are very interesting and last hours.
Do you use the same molds for this new bird fuselage as for your Bald Eagle ornithopter?
Do you know how much is a weight only of the body fiberglass shell and what approximately are sizes of this body and how thick is the wall ?What kind of material are your molds made?

Robert. I like your new propeller design. It is your newest invention? Can you give some more details? RPM, Motor and Gears?

Yes, the fuselage is the same as for the Bald Eagle orni. The molds are also made from fiberglas. Thickness of the fuselage shell is 2 x 165 gr. glas fabric and in the middel 2 layers more.

The prop in the neck is very simple. It makes the model more realistic. The motor in front of the fuselage is the best place for a madel airplane. You can also make a camera in the head of the bird and having a clear view. The motor shaft is a tube and wires can through it. The motor is a 500W outrunner 1250KV. The prop adapter has a diameter of 80mm, prop size 8 x 6.

Thanks for this information.Do you make the motor? What is the RPM of the propeller shaft?
Do you think it is better to have a 4 blade propeller?

No, the motor is standard just adapted to the prop adaptor. The shaft doesn't roted at all, the bell does the job.

I still have to do some experiments, maybe 3 or 4 blades are an option.

No i havent yet Robert but i have noticed the forward wing tip feather it seems to get a little flex through the carbon rod when force is applied which worrys me a bit . I just have the rear feathers to do when i get time i have mounted the motor but it just mounts on the front and the head plugs off .I do like the way you have done yours Robert it looks excellent
regards Brian
Australia is quite flat too Robert not quite as holland it has some places to slope soar but that was my reason for adding a motor as well
