Tiny-Tiny-Tankbuster - Ju 87 STUKA - Scratchbuilt
I have several kits of the Ju 87 here around (Guillows and FSK), all just in their boxes - no motivation to build!
Now I gotta kick and reworked some of my old drawings.
--- And I started to make my own version - just from the scratch!!
the raw model is about 13" and 5 gram of weight ( until now)

Ju 87, flown by Stuka Colonel Hans-Ulrich Rudel
If you don't mind depicting the Stuka of a notorious Nazi, then Rudel's "Kannonenvogel" would be my scheme of choice.

Could you please give us some more details about your carving technique? Your Stuka really looks great, and 5 grams for a peanut sized WWII model (yet without motor/gear, Lipo, Plantraco etc.) seems to be an option ...

I decided to paint it free...
Unfortunatly my skill in painting planes is not so good ( have to practize more ) what means more planes )
It is no carving, - it is a kind of vacforming without vacuum very easy in tooling and lasts about an hour for the fuse..
Here is a tutorial I wrote about what you called carving and what isn't...

after all these models you've made, I kind of do not feel like posting in your threads anymore...
These models are excellent!
Have you already decided what electronics to put in?
I also made a Stuka once, from paper, a Fiddlersgreen one. It was about 30 cm span, it was a model to try with the Plantraco electronics.. I never came any further than the paper model only
Anyway, I really love this model. Incredible that you made this while still doing a tutorial for us!

I think about the following components...
Penta RX 3Gram
2x Xinyu Servo 3,8Gramm
YGE04 Controller - 2Gram
Micro BL - ( not yet built) 4Gram
2x 145 Kokam 7,6Gram
over all ~ 34Gramm @ 32cm WS
( only wish to be better in painting!!!)
Thanks for compliments Dave - but you will do this, too

What else system that is allowed to use in Germany - Plantraco ( I'm not sure that it is allowed) - and I really dont know much about flying using actuators... There is another set, that is called Nuke "airborne" -
in combination with a superslicker propulsion set - it would work @ 1 cell kokam!!
Nuke Set ( 9 Gram)
1x145 Kokam 4gram
Motor gear Prop 5 Gram
All together about 30 gram
not much weight safed ( 5 to 6 gram) - but costs about double as the "standardcomponents" and has about 150m of range compared with 500 m with the first selection.
I use a slowflyer foil with a high FA to FF quotient - so I will need large prop...
I quess it will be fast but not too fast.... and if this doesn't fit I will build a larger plane and use the components in that.

Nuke is known here in the states as Cirrus MicroJuele.
I had a lot of issues with mine, the gear is neater than all get out, but the servos would never center properly. Made it hard to fly micro planes when you couldnt trim them out.
I have heard that the newer servos are improved, but not sure if mine are old or new. The Rx is nice, better range than you need at this scale, and the ESC's are fairly high quality. My only gripe was the servos, fragile and poor centering.

MJ works good with Falcons, if you reverse a couple of wires, or PinPoints as they come wired... The whole flight pack (RX, ESC, 2 servos) is now $80 on sale at Hobby People...

Your paint job looks great. I have painted many Stuka's and when you put the crosses and such on there it will look just fine. Kind of a desert/jungle scheme.
Amazing work all around.

Graham - Allowed in the EU is not allowed to use in Germany - I wanted to build myself a superregenerative receiver with about half a gram - I started with design - ( colpitts OSC and 3V lowcost PIC) but I talked about
possibilities of certification to the German " Netzagentur" the told me that approval referreing to RTTE Rules of radio and telecom must fit and the test would take me some thousands of $... I asked @ Plantraco and the told me that they fit some EMI approvals but the werent able to tell me if they fit te RTTE - ( in Germany 868MHz UHF is reserved for wireless phones) - I will ask back!!!
Mike - didn't hear of MJ yet - will get informations about!!!
Watersharer - I preferred the nuke set - until now -seems to be not the right kit .....
Thanks for the compliment on painting - but I'm still not really satisfied!!
