Favorite Pusher Design and ...

Rightly so! If I had my own website to sell pusher propeller in a slot jet kits, I would be biased as ..., well you know. I suppose if I had to choose a favorite pusher design, it would be quick and easy to build, required very few parts, and could be used as a test bed for all sorts of ideas, gear, and upgrades. I would also want the design to be scaleable, meaning I can make it bigger or smaller to fit the environment, as in indoor or outdoor. The only design I know of that fits each of those requirements is a wing, as in flying wing. The way I build a wing is about as simple as it gets and doesn't take very long. The slowest part of the build is waiting on the glue to set and cure. The design that seems to go together really fast is often called the Combat Wing, which is used for the purpose suggest in the name. The basic airframe is a top and bottom skin of thin foam and a spar with two elevons attached to each wing half. If you make the combat wing large and thick enough, the electronics can be placed inside the center section. You also have the option of making a center section that is thicker than the wing halves as a sort of fuselage/body part the wings are attached to.

Since there are so many threads for flying wing designs of various sizes and "cuts", I won't try to get into the details. The one I build tends to be a Readi-Board foam core (paper skins removed) with parts from fan fold foam (FFF) board. I do use Depron for the elevons since the foam is stiffer, but FFF also works well most of the time. The spar is often made of FFF or Depron with a thin balsa skin glued on one side or both for stiffness, but others get by with less. A common spar for the Combat Wing is often a hardwood dowel rod, or square, or spruce square/rod, or ... and the list can be rather long. The motor used on a flying wing can be as low as 100 watts, but if speed is the need, the watts of the motor are much higher. The trick is to balance the location of the motor and battery for optimium COG. If you haven't built a wing before, it is wise to start with a 1/2" thick insulation foam board and cut out a glider. Shape the leading and trailing edges a little by sandpaper, and use non-hardening clay on the nose until the best COG is found by glide tests. After that it is a matter of making copies using thinner foam board and attaching the electronics to preserve the COG.

No, that looks like one of my Internet finds from a guy in China, or at least I think that is where he lives. I posted a few like that one, and each was from a different builder. The craft came from a cartoon, which I think was Japanese. I haven't built one yet, but who knows, maybe one day.

I drew the one above by looking at a video. I had a hard time getting the CG right and wound up trashing it, so I've done some modifications to try and move the motor and battery a little farther forward. V2 just needs to be cut out and tested and then I'll post up some plans. I'm calling it the Starviper.

Hi all. I searched everywhere, but what I need I found. Need a plan, the Mirage 2000 with dimensions:
Wingspan 40 "
Length of about 60 "
I want it to look like a real fighter planes, tea as a model.
Here I found a thread where the fighter planes but this is small and there is not a plan.
See post by Won W, there is a link:

Thanks guys

I would look at the profile 6mm F22 or the micro version which can also be made from 6mm depron. both are great birds!

I do not think anyone has started a build thread for a Mirage 2000 of that size. Maybe you will? If you find a build plan you like, put on flash drive and take to a copy store and get it bigger on paper. I did that recently for an unusal plan for an RC airplane model. I got the plan copy made twice as big. It is the easy way to make a small airplane plan bigger so construction can begin. Search in RC Groups by using "mirage 2000" in the search option above. Good luck.
