This is still in design phase and may take a while to get going but here’s the general info
WS-118”
WA-1,135.56 sq in
Aspect ratio- 12.26
Weight- Probably not what I want
Wing loading- Same as above

Ideally I want to make a RES wing and full house wing, and both powered fuselage and winch ready one. How much of that happens I’m not sure but would like to make a powered res version at least. The remote id proposed rule has me on fence about making both wings and fuses... time will tell. Ok, onto the meat and potatoes I have the right res wing drawn out so far as you can see. Fuselage for power will be next with lengthened nose and tail plus bigger rudder. Stay tuned and Happy New Year!

Need a little help guys landing a Spitfire. How does one keep from dragging a wingtip after the tail settles during landing? I have yet to come to a stop without dipping a wing after landing. Any tips?

My video practicing landings, skip to the end to see the wing dragging. I handle the touch and go’s ok. But after the tail settles, I can only hold on for the ride. Very frustrating...

I was hesitant to categorize this blog entry as a “Build Log” because when one buys a moldie, it’s already built.
All that’s required is the installation of off the shelf items.

I’m logging the fit out of my V-Tail, Slim fuse, Explorer Big Flap F5J model because there’s either so little info to be found or it’s not in a single location that’s easily identifiable.

Firstly, I wasn’t expecting the extra long boom. About an extra 115mm longer than the Normal fuse.
Why would this matter? ... CG.
I’d ordered the 75gram Leopard LC 250-30 4040kv motor with the 5:1 micro box from Reisenauer.
The last thing I want to have to do is add lead to the nose for CGing it.

I was also surprised that a Horizontal stab plus a vertical stab weighed the same as my 2 v-tails. Both configurations are approximately 60g.
It occurred to me that the Explorer may require 60g tails, regardless of configuration, for an achievable CG.
As some form of confirmation of that idea, my Vixen 2 V-tails are heavier than my F3J Vixen (winch launch) V-tails.
The only explanation I can think of is weight and balance.
I’m 99% certain that the v-tails are built to a minimum weight and could be lighter.

Can now move on to the rest

Full sun movie set i think. And my Panthera in the background. Plenty of space to taxi around the set.

Big thanks to Nagas for pushing me

Having fun now that i'm getting results.

Interested to hear what others think about the realism.

1. What is a drone?
 
UAV is the abbreviation of Unmanned Aerial Vehicle. It is an unmanned aircraft using radio remote control equipment and its own program control device, including unmanned helicopters, fixed-wing aircraft, multi-rotor aircraft, and unmanned airships. , Unmanned paraglider. In a broad sense, it also includes near-space vehicles (20-100 km airspace), such as stratospheric airships, high-altitude balloons, solar drones, and so on. From a certain perspective, drones can perform complex aerial flight tasks and various load tasks under unmanned conditions, and can be regarded as "air robots".
 
2. What is flight control?
 
The so-called drone flight control is the drone's flight control system, which mainly includes gyroscope (flying attitude perception), accelerometer, geomagnetic induction flight control, air pressure sensor (rough control of hover height), ultrasonic sensor (low altitude) Precise control or obstacle avoidance), optical flow sensor (precision determination of horizontal position when hovering), GPS module (rough positioning of horizontal position and height), and control circuit. The main function is to automatically maintain the normal flight attitude of the aircraft.
