Here are a few pics...The first shows the parts transfered to the 2mm foam where applicable next to a full sheet of Depron...Next shows that the scraps almost equal the parts!!!......---And lastly, the 2mm parts cut out...The parts are for the larger "C" model...I easily traced/cut out all of the parts while watching the Olympics this evening...

This build requires a real minimal amount of Depron to accomplish...I could easily cut out 2 sets of parts from one sheet of Depron with foam to spare!!!

Looking forward to the build!!!... ...

I added another CF rod for more rigidity.

Au-117- if you're going to get more made, I'd like to buy two

Great work guys! Based off what I've seen with Au117's F-35 airframes you guys are going to really enjoy flying yours. Here are a few pics from last weekend. And let me just say that Au117 is one of the most impressive builders I've ever met. He is extremely humble but has a tremendous amount of knowledge and skill! His micro WW1 are absolutely ridiculous in terms of realism. I was blown away when he brought out this fleet! I personally feel lucky to have this guy contributing to the Micro EDF movement!

WOW!!!---Yes, we are VERY Lucky!!!...By chance---Did you get to see the Navy version of the F-35 fly???...I was wondering whether to build the Navy or Air Force version...I would like to do some high alpha flight but also want it to be about as fast as the GP Sabre...

Bret I don't know what to say, but thank you. I have enjoyed our talks very much. the electrolyte is so cool. I feel privileged to have seen it fly. Thank you for bringing it back with you.
Kevin. the big difference in the C and A is the roll. at speed the A will turn in to a drill bit

au-117,

If I want to make mine a fixed fan design, how should I create the nozzle and lip on the 30mm fan?

Thanks

So....Just curious---Sounds like you prefer the A model...I like speed as well as high alpha so I was thinking that the C model with its larger wing would be a better model to handle the weight of a 3S 240mAh Hyperion battery....What do you think???

Ducted fan mounted (I hope) and everything is now cut out.

The only issue I'm encountering now is that the F-86 servos seem to favor travel in one direction- anyone have this issue too?

Kevin,
I only flew the C version but from what I've observed both models are about the same speed. They are both scale so at the end of the day it's up to you whether you want the C version which is a little more stable in roll or the A which is much more nimble. They are both so cool when you look at them in person. They are so tiny but completely functional.....no pusher props, cheater holes, or cartoonish looks. A scale modern fighter in micro EDF!
