Very whimsical graphic! Didn't want to mess it up..
Need to get a better hatch, but see the pipe clamp?
My first 'stick'.
Top Art - anyone know the builder? My numbers in white.
A pretty keen (If I say so myself!) view of how small the gear is. It is a single 2" retratractable wheel in each fuse. This will probably limit operation to hard surfaces.
A good view of the fuselages and the center section and motor pod. I still need to figure out how to add the joiner at the rear (not present on the full-scale plane).
Side view showing the aspect of the wingspan vs the fuselage length and the approximate ground stance.
Currently sporting a 12 x 10 APC-E prop, I still think I'll be able to get a 14 x 10 prop in place. That is a Castle ICE 50 mocked in place.
Plywood and hardwood motor mounting plate.
Showing the end view with the rib profile and leading+trailing edges. Trailing edge will be sliced to form the flap.
The two battery bays just behind the spar.
This is the detail of the wing joiner tube, securely epoxied to the spar and threaded through the outer 4 ribs.
Outboard full-size ribs are spaced at 2", inboard 1/2 ribs behind batteries are at 1.5".
My build table is a solid core door, skinned with duct-steel so that I can use magnet hold-downs.
Ribs cut out by tracing template and cutting out on scroll saw.
Showing location of both 2S packs, to be wired series for 4S. Room in pod for another cell if needed.
Equipment for the wing flap and power system.
Cover of the ARF manual.
Showing location of spar and batteries.
Overall Dimensions and Power Calculations.
Here's all the parts to implement by channel.
Ventilation holes behind prop and spinner removed for flight.
Motor mounted into a plate at the front of the stringered cowl. X-piece to hold into front from within.
Servos positioned under cockpit opening to allow for trimming and servicing.
Nice view of how the covering on the fuselage turned out. (Even with several crunched stringers.. very delicate to be light)
View of the struts and static spinner.
Showing correct relative insignia position.
Success!! It flys.. Gliding in to a nice landing.
