New F4-u video with bungee launcher

Hi guys

I've just posted a new video about the S&B model aircraft F4-u Corsair on my web site ....
You can see a bungee launcher, with springboard, in action..

EPP warbird with speed 400 + 7 N500AR + 6.5x4 Sc Graupner ..

Bernard,

That is the most excellent flight video I've seen to date! Great editting! I love the way you do the jump cuts in time to music, and the sunny day/grey day contrast. Great camera angles in the hay field, too.

Hi Bernard,


I started to download and saw the 10 Mb, so I'll take it from home tonight.

Can you share the flight report with us, config ? Is it a fun plane ? Does it fly realistically ? Stalls ?

and Happy New Year !!
Patrick.

Mike,

thank you for your comment ..
I'm very happy you like the F4-u video..

We have, in fact, used only one digital dv videocamera. The plans (Hay field) are started again several time so that it does not appear with the screen.

In the same style (jump cuts in time to music) , you can see "Tiger on the Beach", the plane is F5 Tiger by CAM.

Downloaded the video and I understand and agree with the previous posts, this is an AMAZING video !!!


Bernard, now you tell us, how much time to do this.
Do you plan a THX version


This is really a work of art. Master Chevalier, You raised the bar again....

And what is happening in France, seems like winter forgot you ?

Thanks for your comments ...

The F4-u S&B Model Aircraft is a 400 warbird. The fuselage is preformed in PPS (very resistant foam, practically indeformable).
The plisophy is no stress ..
After a crash, I just picked it up and it was OK to fly with no damage. What value, no more going home depressed and you just keep flying! Not like balsa kits that take weeks to build and a second to demolish...

The F4 is powered by speed 400 associated with 7 N500AR. The only problem is the flight time (3 to 5 mn) !!

we prepare a version powered by an LRK engine which will allow
more longer flight time and more stunt (Flyware or axis).

Envergure/Wingspan: 801 mm 31.4 inch
Longeur/overall length: 550 mm 21.6 inch
Surface aile/Wing aera: 12 dm2 207 sq.in
Poids vide/Weight: 170 g 6 oz
Poids équipé/Weight: 380 g 13.4 oz
Poids +7N500AR/Weight: 490 g 17.3 oz
Charge alaire/Wing Loading: 40.8 g 11 oz/sq.ft.
Profil/Airfoil: Eppler 374 Modified


Patrick .. non THX version but we had asked Naomi Campbell to our next video ... do you want shooting with us ... ?

Bernard,


I am so sorry, I am busy with helena christensen for the next few months, taking some videos with the Diablotin Mini.

Tell Naomi to wait a little, please, but I will certainly come to help
