F-86 box fuse construction Higher Res VIDEO AND PLANS ADDED :)

howdy all,
wasnt too sure how this was going to look when I started it, but it doesnt seem to look too bad so I decided to post the build sequence and maybe the plans... if she flies good
anyhow its a box fuse F-86 that is rounded to shape by sanding. the specs:

dollar tree foam (de-papered)
SA 35mm fan
16" span
16" or so length
hopeing to use 2s 350mah batt (should work in this one) ended up going with a 3s 460mah 35-50c NanoTech
forgoing ailerons and will attempt tailerons and see how she goes

other than that I still need to install the "make it go stuff"

nope the fan fits right in through the wing saddle, I want to try to make the wing removable for access to all the components, or may just glue it on if I am satisfied with how everything fits....not sure yet but I'll get it worked out

My first micro edf experiment was like the one you just build but i've used a gws edf30 and Hyperion y12 5800kv on 2s.... To heavy but fly in a nice glide with full power :-)
3s make the fan explode and a tomahawk mini viper was the next plane to fly with the Hyperion motor and that's a blast I can tell you ;-)

My sabre was 1/20 as scale what's yours? I can try to find some pics of it if you want it do you use one hollow depron wing with main spar to? And what type of airfoil?

@ Robert,
dont know what scale just drew it up from a three view and took a guess at how big to make it, the wing isnt hollow, its two layers of $tree foam laminated together with spray adhesive then sanded to airfoil shape employing a tried and true formula I been using for awhile...I guess at the best airfoil shape then apply sanding guidelines and sand to those, its lite and strong and they fly quite well, thin low drag and high lift.

@Dave,
thanks, just another experiment that I "think" should work.....if I can get all the doodads stuffed in there

Cool build! So you just sanded the box-shaped fuse in shape? I may want to try that once.

Robert, as you're another Dutchy, do you know of any good foam over here? The stuff I've found is way too heavy to weak for rc-planes. (I'll just keep it in English so I don't Dutch all over the thread )

Depron all the way ;-)

In zwolle is quartel die 2-3-5-6mm depron can deliver so that's good to use if you need special sizes else you can use graupner depron that haven't got a grain like wood got and you can go to the praxis where you can buy yellow foam for about 7 euro/sheet or go to the carpet shop or one isolation shop and ask for some test plates to see what you can use

ok,
everything is mounted and ready to go, as you can see I mounted the servos through the fuse sides so as not to impede the airflow,.. again wasnt sure how it would look, turns out its not too ghastly
so far I'am fairly happy with how its turned out, the servos are the 5g size...probably been better with 2g'ers...but ya use what ya have
