ksqm: Got it ! will ship tomorrow !
Thanks again !
Everyone I know of wanted to go LARGER.
1/2 size will be interesting to see !
You must be planning on inside or gym use, eh ?
Keep us posted.
At 1/2 size and 1/2 thickness I suppose I could just scale the cutting.
Let me think about that ...
Oh wait, maybe I could even use a 1/16" bit instead of the 1/8" I usually use.
Hmmm ? ? ?
That oughta work !
I might have to try that out !

Wow that's two guys interested.
Guess I'd better go try cutting one. :-)
Have you thought about Power or Wing Swing Servo ?

Hey, did I start something hear??? I flying with a Plantraco 900 Mhz Tz and Mico9 4Ch servo Rx. I go with the 50-60% size out of necessity. It doesn't hurt that I have a small field down the street. I have a ToxicToast F14 with a twist, his Euro Fighter needs electronics, Jivaro's T-50 Golden Eagle needs electronics, and a sweet profile B-58 (with a twist) cut out.
Birdofplay, I received the "Pizza Box" and everything was in excellent shape. I'll make sure I send pics of the "Half Pint", once I get thru the current line up. I just need to find time to get everything done.
In regards to the power, I'll go with a 1811 2000 Kv 10 gr or 1806N (forget Kv) 20 gr depending on final weight. 3S bat of course. I still need to do a little research on the thickness of the F14 and the height of the servo. I have seen some pretty small metal geared servo's thought. I'll post the info when I finish. It may be a couple of weeks to a month, before I actually start the build on the Half Pint. I'll be sure to post once I start.

I am going to cut HEMI01 a 1/2 sized F-14 do you want one too ?
Big problem is I ONLY HAVE Black 3mm depron. :-(
Or I could use 3mm RCFoam , which I still have some stock of.
They quit offering it.
If you dont recall it has a Hard finish on one side an is about as strong as 6mm depron
because of that hard surface.
Anyway let me know if your interested ?
If Black OK with you ???

Black is very ok for me.
pm me on info for payment, and sett me upp for 2 stk if its okay?
|Nov 25, 2009, 05:52 PM|
I've seen those on their site but never owned one.
Plus this 1/2 sized F-14 has no precedents.
You're breaking new ground ! ! !
I'm confused by the comment ...
"sett me upp for 2 stk "
what are you saying?
My guyess would be two sets of 1/3 scale parts.
let me know ?

OH GEEZZZ !!!
I just cut ONE of the 1/2 sized F-14's and , well ...
I HATE to say this about a Fighter Aircraft but ...
It's SO CUTE !!!
The photos just don't capture the "Cuteness" so
I put a couple of things in the pic to show how small this this thing is !
The Millimeter scale is in there for you the EU guys :-)
I had never bothered to cut foam with a 1/16" bit before.
Very Interesting ! ! !

Hey DAVE !!! long time ...
Yeah, that is what I have been wondering about also.
They LOOK Like they'd make SWELL Christmas Tree Ornaments :-))))
Dario, ARE YOU SERIOUS ??? :-)
I just cut two and they are headed for Norway !
I can do you a couple too.
BTW: I just finished your BD-5 sheets !
This is a whole new product and I simply used a .5 scale factor applied to the Original F-14 cutting files.
I used a 1/16" bit instead of a 1/8" bit so nothing had to be changed.
It HAS NOT been put together by anyone yet. A Total experiment based on a "WHAT IF" somewhere in this thread.
For these 1/2 sized F-14 parts made from 3mm Black depron with no wood:
I'm going to ask $21 for just 1 including S&H in a Pizza Box (what else :-)
or $34 for two in the same box.

Received my "normal" size, non-cute, F-14 in a box today--thanks Bob!! Box had one "bashed" corner, but thanks to Bob taping everything down all the parts are perfect.
I know this has been hashed/discussed a zillion times in this thread, but what is/are the most common swing wing servo to use? Metal gears with what, 30-40oz of torque?
Any luck on the BD-5 cut parts going into 2 pizza boxes Bob?
