Naudins Coanda Saucer
Naudins Coanda Saucer
Thread starter's only
Stuff i bought in the beginning
3mm Depron frame
Petals glued on
Recent mod was to add some cf stris ,the frame was abit flimsy for me.
Still need to work out the hardware placement
This is wat they look like on Naudins saucer
Naudins saucer with the stabilizers tilted. He has Red and Yellow blocks painted on front and back control surfaces to indicate front-end and rear-end .
Still lots of work, but it is a start.
Inside ring is 3 layers 3mm depron rolled
Top and bottom ring of 6mm depron as well as webs
Outer skin is 3mm depron and suport legs 6mm depron
Painted and glued
I like the way this came out
There is a 2mm gap all round between prop and ring
New toy to play with
Realy nice ,hope it flyes as good as it looks
Here is what i came up with. Top 6mm depron then 6mm epp with slight bigger outer side as a impact absorbing bumper and a 6mm depron bottom.
The bottom has no filleted edges as well as the epp
The top is filleted on top inside and outside
After dry fitting it needed some paint to look nice. Pink for port side and green for starboard side
Black for bottom.
Finnished top view
From the bottom
Structure for electronics first stage
Assembled with baterry
Just to get the idea
Lighting holes and holes for servos
Only 54g extra weight and stronger than depron
That looks good to me so far,there is hope
My home made thrust meter
Was an interesting experiment
Added some feet
Servos fitted and esc fitted and connected to motor
3mm control flaps cf reinforced and horn, one down 3 to go
Two gyro's and reciever fitted
Components for the yaw control
Yaw controls being fitted
To get an idea of what its going to look like when finnished
Connecting the the 4 sets of 3 paddles together was not easy
This idea was made on the fly and moves easily.Done on both sides.
Connecting the servo is more tricky, just need to do the other side and then see if the servo is up to it. If this works with just one servo then I''ll be very happy. Just love carbon.
