Dassault Super Etendard build thread

This new thread about an exotic jet (for U.S), the Dassault Super Etendard.
They served in French Navy since 1978, and bombed Bekaa in Lebanon in 1983, Yugoslavia and Bosnia during the 90's, and now Talibans in Afganistan.
Of course, they served gloriously in Argentina's Navy during the Falklands War when they sank destroyer HMS Sheffield and freighter Atlantic Conveyor With Exocet missiles.

This little parkjet, powered with feigao 4100kv and 3 cells lipo 700 or 850mA, is entirely depron made
Let's see how to build it ; pics are better than speaking...

Interesting project! I like it. Are you also planning to add the 'hook' under the fuselage to make the landing shorter? Imagine you land the plane on a ping-pong table like on a carrier!

Then, glue formers of top fuse on the other side and assemble elev. servo.
At the same time you glue the fuse up sheet, cut depron from the view of mid fuse and formers for lightness.

Arresting hook

I tested it for you on my Breguet 1050 Alizé, but it was not to land on table-tennis.

Elevator : Depron 3mm, balsa 3mm and 0,4mm plywood. In fact, light 3 mm balsa is better for the elev.

Hi, Pete

No it was built in 3 ...evenings because i often work during the night i was in the Army before (Firemen of Paris) and i get used not to sleep a lot. It's the same thing in my new job, in the Senate...
Now, it's 4 AM...
Thanks for compliments.
Greetings from Paris
Philippe.
