Good looking model. What retains the wings once they are mounted?

Hi Gene,

Thanks. There are two magnets (one on the wing and the other on the fuselage).

As promised, i have shortened the part which supports the AR6400.
I have also tried to attach the nose with 2 carbon rods and 2 slots. You insert the slot and turn. The nose cannot more quit the fuselage.

I must do the same for the rear part of the plane.

I have to find a way to make light wheels (depron maybe) and fix them at each side of the fuselage , so that they'll support the wings.

I made the landing gears last week.
I have to make the hatch for the batteries under the fuselage.

Finally, the nose will be glued once for all (i'll remove the foam and the pieces of carbon rods used to hold the nose to the fuselage).

Thanks Dave.
Maybe i'll make a thread in the micro edf forum if the plane flies...

Ok, the plane is ready for maiden.
Gulp...

We'll see tomorrow at the indoor venue.

Here are a few others pictures.

I have good and bad news:

Good news: The plane flies and the power is enough. When i first tossed it in the air, i was obliged to push on the elevator.
I moved the batteries backward, but i wonder if i should have not trimmed the elevator and keep the same CG.

The second flight was a little more chaotic. I wonder if the wings do not bend up, increasing the dihedral which is maybe already too high.

Bad news: During the third flight, the plane crashed and the fuselage almost broke in 2, plus a propeller which popped out the nacelle.
I've repaired it with safe CA, but i'll have to work on the decal to replace a letter which is damaged.

I would like to fly the plane outside, with no wind. The weather is not very good actually...

Hi Dave,

Thanks for your interest. I was a little bit sad and frustrated when i came back from the indoor venue, but the plane is ready to fly again, maybe next sunday. We'll see. Maybe a few adjustments and it can be ok.

Otherwise, i have in mind to build an Airforce one with two edf only (the two others will be fake). I have downloaded a paper plan to study the project.

I would like to increase the size (60-65 cm) and build with EPP. Something more solid. Also the wingloading will be better and i would use more powerful EDF.

That's an other story (and an other thread...).

Thanks. I follow the thread each weak.

For a 60-65 cm wingspan, a GWS EDF 30 or a DF30 from BIM will be ok. With a 8 mm brush motor, i can get 24-25g x2 = 50g of thrust, enough to fly a 60-70g airliner, and it works with one cell only.

The EDF25 with brushless motor are more powerfull, but requires 2 cells + 2 ESC and eat a lot of current, which requires bigger batteries.

I'll see when i make the plane.
