Jackals and Jeckels
Here are the photos of the Jackal and Jeckel together to show their main differences
although the span is similar te Jackal has a constant chord wing with tapered ailerons where the Jeckel has a taper wing with constant profile ailerons .
Both twins are powered by the CF2812 motors with 3s1p 1800 Lipos and 20amps escs almost 3lbs of thrust and 250 odd watts of power using 8x4 counter revolving props. the Jeckel has an extra servo for the flap. .Both weigh almost 1kg and the wing loadings are 12oz/sqft
In Flight the characteristics are similar the built-in undercarraige of the jeckel make the model sit lower but still has enough ground clearance to take off and land on grass .Both models need to be flown "to the ground " The trike u/c gives good ground handling and both models get airbourne in a short distance and have plenty of power for aerobatics . The jeckel with its hugh booms has that transporter look and it is agile and was not affected by cross winds .
Getting the wiring into the jeckel was no joke with 3 extension leads going to each boom and power cable of 20 amp rating there was not much room in the centre of the wing and the weight of the wing doubled with all that copper.
the jeckel is very much a one piece model although it will come apart for servicing I have a boom brace which stops any twisting when the wing has been removed
