NanoBandit for brushless edf40

My super mite arrived from superflyrc today together with the brushless edf40 fan. I decided to leave the mite on the shelf for now and build something else for the fan.

So probably the smallest bandit todate, went together very quickly in about an hour then another to cover it. Still need to fit a tiny canopy.

Specs are
18" span, 17" long
empty weight 28g (solarfilm covering added 12g!)
AUW 130g with 3S 830 lipoly.

Thanks for the kind comments.

Model is built entirely from 3mm depron, the wing is flat plate and has a 2mm carbon spar. The transparent solarfilm makes the model look like it had a metalic finish on it, this doesn't show up in the photos because of the flash, need to take some pics in daylight.

I actually made two. The first one was trimmed to a minimum shape to accomodate the fan, batteries, and intake area then deconstructed to make templates for the second one.

These are very quick to build, they only have about 6 parts, most of the time is spent covering. If it flys well i'll make a load of them and we can do some highspeed nano combating ;-)

Pilot figure

Does anyone have a cad model of a jet pilot I could have? I'll scale it to size and mill it on my cnc machine.

Cheers

Joe

p.s. would people be interested in templates for the nanobandit?

Oh No it's the begining of the RC nano wars! Full scale RC combat (because the planes assemble in 60 minutes you can build 8 on a saturday!)

Unfortunately there is no missile launch system, they aren't legal, you'll just have to deal with the lasers

Looks nice what fan are you putting into it?

The one that comes with this kit

http://www.superflyrc.com/SF_Frames....me=SF_Home.asp

kicks out 5-6 ounces of thrust so thrust to weight should be well over 1:1 and about 250watts/lbs.

I think it really kinda kicks butt that now, when talking about watts/lb, and quoting numbers like 250, it doesn't mean a $600 setup in an even more expensive plane... rock on.

You had to ask!!! That's like asking if people sit in front of their computer at 11:14 on a Thursday night looking at pictures of EDFs.

Yes, I'd love templates. I was just fixin' to order one of those super mites myself. Time to go to Lipos!
