Blade CP heat slink, vastly improved power
reneforced nose, the red color helps with spoting the nose, painting it black later. Behind the tap is 2mm balsa firewall. UPDATE, nose is now black
antenia mod, without riping it apart, used cf stick to hold antenna off electrical componets, peace of match stick holds slack
17 oz. RTF.
Motor Komodo KH278 1.5stator 13t 22g Delta. Gunther 17,000revs. 11.9A 3s90020c.
Left stick input
Right stick input
??? Flyable ???
F-27C Stryker. You can see the antenna taped to the top of the left wing.
The bottom view shows duct tape to protect the belly when landing. Also note the tape on the bottom of the horz. stabs.
I removed the cigarette plug and connected bullet connector for a 12 volt AC power supply.
Clipped wings and new Tiger tails.
Extended lower fins to protect the prop
Soon, the entire plane will be an orange and black Tiger scheme.
personaly I like the clean look
F-27C at Hight speed....looks kinda real here! John Campbell's plane!
Entry hole, nicked prop
Missing screw, loose screw and nicked prop.
Loose screws in spite of Loctite
The crooked nose of the beat up 27-B.
Going Vertical on the couch!
This is the High speed fly-by, on the coffee table.
Don't laugh at this, it works good, the broken foam is from the old 480 motor and a tree, its all glued up good.
This is my Stryker B inverted on the coffee table.
This is now the nose I have on my F-27B! Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
I lost the orientation on this bird once, I'm hoping not again!
He love the planes, we go out together sometimes, mostly just me though!
I wraped it up in packing tape and put a strip of metal tape on each wing tip. I'm hoping it will reflect sun light to help me to see it.
this is a close up of the metal tape.
You can see the old roadbed we are making into a 1600foot runway
the runway enhanced
This bird falls together, Best 3 channel ship to date! Paint is Krylon Fusion in Camo, not the best pick when flying on a overcast day.
Its my first "larger" wing, and for a turn and burn machine it's a blast to fly!
Power is a CustomCdr Triple self wound motor that I stole from my Mini Ultra Stick.
Around 230 watts on a APC 8/6e, TP-2100 3-S pack. Top speed is not blistering fast, around 60 I'd guess, but still nice. Stand her on the tail and go vertical like there's no tomorrow!
Underside - I'll have to cut slits into the airframe to tuck away the servo wires. As you can see, nothing else is installed on the bottom
Top view, electronics hard to see, but the radio/ultimate BEC are in the front, the ESC is in the back underneath the rear hatch piece
This is how I want the final product to look. The electronics are underneath the hatch pieces, except for the battery.
Close up of front compartment. The empty space (wires running through) is for the 4S 2200mAh battery.
I routed the servo extension wires to the front-most compartment, near the angled wall where the radio and Ultimate BEC will reside. I filled that large hole with Hobbylite filler after I took this photo.
Full view of Stryker underside - I ran c/f rod through the back of the wing, directly underneath the stock F-27C motor mount.
Top of Stryker - acrylic tape across the front of the wings hides the c/f strips used to reinforce the wings. I will cut a channel inside the battery compartment to tuck in those wires.
Added skids to protect the prop on landing.
From the UH web site.
Slow pass for the camera.
Before the re-build.
I love the look of the twin tail fuses on this stryker!! I want to do it to mine!
Twin Six-Series 2000Kv
These are my LED Luxeonstar afterburners in high sunlight. The work off the throttle channel.
Good view in high sunlight.
How they look indoors
note how bright the cloud to the left is. Bright outside!
Clad out in the Nimitz Jolly Rodger scheme
Luxeonstar LEDS in high sunlight
Good view of the JustGoFly 450t 300 Watts of brute power!
The Blue Ballast Luxeonstar, which is in series with the afterburners. If it uses power, make light, not heat!
The Red anticollision strobe on top reflects off the blue collimater like a mirror!
Good view of the internal RF shielding
Still some paint to add
Yellow one way, red the other ;-)
ready to go
rear fins detail
note cooling slot
The rear is glassed (henry's 183) over triangle stock which is epoxied to trailing edge and rounded off giving a strong straight edge to hinge balsa elevons to.
cut down to floor, mount will bond to spar that spans rear of wing. Should be nice and durable.
Here is the spar(.210 cf rod) that spans the stock spars, stiffening wing and motor mounting area.
Here are 2 smaller cf rods that run forward 7" at slight angle into thicker part of fuse, further strengthening the weak motor mounting area.
stick mount points straight down the center of fuse.
Can I have my cake and eat it to? My goal is to have options. Outrunner or can motor.
epoxied into fuse
glassed over using Z-Poxy
now I can use JGF 450th
I can cut this mount flush and sand down stick mount to work like a receiver hitch
Or stock mount for can motors like Mega 16/15
brushless e-flite inrunners
Might dig out some air intakes on side of fuse as I am not so sure there will be enough air getting inside to keep battery and two esc's cool
velcro battery strap and cooling hole for battery and ESC
Rx and ESC placement note the Medusa motor ^_^
airscoop for the battery rubberband hatch
Gone but not forgotten....
Spare F-27C nose cone housing Speed, altitude sensors. Other part hanging is the LCD screen. Other wire plugs to data logger.
Original, stock fuse, HXT 2700 motor
Revised, new elevons & hinges, same motor, 4X A123 2300 cells
Shaved height off the top
