Garland, that's a real good deal.

Anymore pictures?? Close up shots would be good, these guys can be kinda picky. But from what I can see it looks real nice.

Who made the fuses??

Steve,
I don't have any other photos at this time but I can take any that you may want. I took that photo earlier this evening on a whim. I'll include a couple of closeups and a photo of my completed Mig-15. I built mine as a sloper.
I'll take some more in a few minutes.

Thanks Garland. Looks like it was made for the slope with the small tail pipe.

What's the length of the fuse?? The tail could be opened up to suit EDF I'm sure but I we'll need to get an idea of the size of the fuse so the guys will know what to power it with.

Thanks a bunch Garland.

Steve

more Mig info

The fuse is 29" long from intake to exhaust. The tail protrudes slightly beyond the exhaust port. Here are some photos.

Garland,

I to am interested and would like to buy one depending on a few questions:

Can you tell me how much it weighs?

What is the wing area (if known)?

What did you do for the wings? Balsa? Foam? Any plans?

Paypal account?

fuse update

I don't have a reliable scale for this fuse but I'm estimating it weighs 4-6 oz. empty. I've got fishing sinkers that weigh MUCH more than this fuse. My built fuse (without wings) weighs approximatly 12 ounces. Granted it is a sloper so all that is included is one servo, a large receiver, lost plane alarm, some ply stiffeners and some miscellaneous hardware.

The wing at the root has a 10" cord. The sweep of the wings and style is close to scale. Some would say this is "semi-scale". Total span is 48". My wings are balsa-sheeted foam with hardwood leading edges and tips. The airfoil is RG15. The stabs are slab balsa. Wings and stabs are covered with grey Ultracote.

I will supply an outline of my wings if the buyer is interested. In fact, I can even provide the outline of the foam cores in order for you to copy the length, cord, and sweep angle.

This project, as a sloper anyway, is for experienced builders only. I can give you MY CG but there are no building plans. If you are familiar with sheeted wing construction, you shouldn't have any problems building this neat fuse.

For those of you sending me emails regarding recommended fan units....I don't have a clue. I do fly electrics but no ducted fans.

I do have a Paypal account and I'm selling this one fuse for now.
Thanks,
Garland

Guys,

If you look at the pictures closely you notice that the intake and exit are well within the mini fan size. If you count the tail over hang the fuse is closer to 35 inches. Not much smaller than my 1101.

Great looking model Garland and thank you for all the details. Fuse weight sounds good. You can't beat it for 40 dollars.

Who did the plug-glass work? I do that myself for a living making EDF jet kits. Who ever he is, he did a nice job.
