Greeting my friends! I took some time and removed all of the support material from the aft turret. I also used my Dremel tool with a fine sanding drum to clean off any remaining support material. Looks pretty good. I'm pleased with the results and the depression rails.

I've started the forward turret print this morning. Initially Octoprint says 2.5 days. The forward turret also has some of the cockpit and chartroom walls attached. That's why I think it will take about 3.5 days, Monday morning around 7:00am.

Photos are on my iPhone, so will take a few minutes to get them added.

The P.215 was an advanced jet night fighter project by Blohm & Voss during WWII. With a crew of three including the pilot, a navigator and radar/radio operator/rear gunner, it would have been powered by twin Heinkel HeS 011 jet engines set low to the rear, had a tailless swept-wing layout and heavy armament. An order for three prototypes was received in 1945 just weeks before the war ended before any significant detail design work could be begun.

Highly advanced, it would have featured a comprehensive all-weather radio navigation suite and the advanced FuG 244 target acquisition and gun-laying radar.

The P.215 featured a main wing of constant chord and moderate sweep, with small landing flaps forming rear root fillets. Stub tailbooms at the wing tips supported tapered outboard tail surfaces. The horizontal stabilisers and attached elevators were angled downwards both in incidence and, more sharply, in anhedral. The neutral or negative angle of incidence provided longitudinal stability and, in conjunction with the anhedral, contributed to directional stability. Small vertical fins added to the directional stability and supported rudders.

Several armament options were proposed, with the main armament clustered around the nose intake and comprising a mix of heavy 30 mm or cannon with or without rockets. An unusual feature was a further pair of 30 mm cannon set either side of the rear fuselage and pivoting more than 90° to fire either rearwards or upwards. Provision was also made behind the cockpit for a single rearward-facing 20 mm gun with up to 50° elevation, and for two 500 kg bombs beneath the fuselage.

This aircraft would have been formidable with a prospective speed of 860 km/h (534 mph) at 6,000m, a range of 2,200 km (1,367 miles) and a service ceiling of 11,000 m (36,000 ft)!

Here are some pictures of my Tonka Summit and the slow build of it .


Using a Dragon link(433mhz) RX and TX on a Spektum Dx8
channel 1 is throttle
channel 3 is steering
channel 2/4 is pan/tilt for head movement
channel 5 is hi/low gear
channel 6/7 is for front and rear diff lock... however i am going to put them both on one channel as i see no reason to have seperate locking front or rear diffs. and will free up a channel.
channel 8 is for the arm raise.
channel 9 will be for lights and or horn( yet to come)

for video i have head tracking as well as manual on the TX...
using 1.5W 1.3 TX with a TrueRC puck antenna .
ground station is a relay of 1.3 to 5.8 set up.. but can plug straight in to the 1.3 if need be to free up 5.8 for other drivers/flyers.

A little matter I've been meaning to bring up... does anyone else feel like those pod shapes on the bottom of the landing gear would be better being called "wheel spats" than "wheel pants"? I never heard of wheel pants until I started reading US hosted RC sites like this one. To me I'd always known them for years and years as Spats on fullsize aircraft. I will concede that I've seen them called wheel pants on fullsize too since then, but I'm pretty sure in Commonwealth countries the term is, or at least used to be, spats. Now, doesn't using the word "pants" for an aircraft part seem slightly silly? Even uncomfortable? The thing is, these pants don't go over any legs, they're just at the foot of the landing gear over the wheel. So if anything they're more like wheel shoes (that's not too bad either). And some Stukas had what they called :"trouser type" fairings over the fixed LG legs, they could certainly qualify as pants but few others have them, and fewer RC models. Isn't Spats just a better word, and doesn't make you feel so weird saying it? So the solution is obvious. Loud and clear, say it with me, call 'em Spats! from now on. So who's with me? Let's spread the word! Literally I mean, and the word is SPATS!

Got 7 flights in today, including a flight by Ali Machinchy to gather his comments (he liked it!).

On three consecutive flights, I removed an ounce of lead from the nose and carefully repeated the stall testing. Great news - I don't need to put any weight back! She has a wide cg envelope while still maintaining reasonable stall characteristics. At the current cg, which is about 34% MAC, it still has a gentle stall. Compared to 30%-31%, where I could almost never get a wing to drop, at 34% you will see a wing drop about 30% of the time. Usually it's when holding full up to induce a stall, then continuing to hold as it tries to recover, thus forcing another stall. It's at this second stall where the wing drops, but then it's still benign. She changes heading about 90°, dips gently and recovers back to level in 20' of altitude or so.

I did have a gust tip her up on a wingtip during a rollout toward the end of the day. The stab made contact with the ground, and appears to have suffered a little damage. I'm going to add a little reinforcement there in the form of either a couple small stringers or a second spar. My philosophy is to design to fly, not crash, but she still needs to be able to withstand this level of knocking about to handle real life.

Michael Selig came out again and captured a bunch of video in 4K, so you can look for that soon. I'll post it in a comment below this thread when he has it processed, a process which takes a lot longer to do in 4K when compared to 1080p.

Hello there friends. The Aft turret print finished up sometime early this morning. There is no steps (Y-Axis Shift) on the finished print. I took the entire turret with the depression rails and printed it as one complete part. I'm very pleased with the results, especially the depression rails. Yes, there is a lot of support material that has to be removed, but it printed out well.

With the adjustment to the printer I made (increasing the reference voltage on each axis and the extruder stepper motors drivers and replacement and securement of the Bowden tube) I think that the finished prints are better than before.

I've got to add the pictures from my iPhone, so will do that as quickly as I can.

Yep Les Amis,
Un Test concluant et des sensations nouvelles ! Voici donc le F500, une aile volante ou Avion à Décollage et Atterrissage Vertical (ADAV ou VTOL en anglais). Une fois les apréhensions passées, QUEL PLAISIR ! Je découvrais ce type d'appareil pour la première fois mais la facilité de prise en main m'a époustouflée !!! En effet, le vol vertical est d'une simplicité déconcertante et le premier passage en mode horizontalest grisant, par contre quelques secondes suffisent pour prendre confiance grace à son mode stabilisé . Le passage en mode Acro est encore plus flippant, mais , là encore, c'est beaucoup plus simple de maitriser cet engin comparer à un drone racer. Le Top c'est bien sur le vol en FPV et Acro, quelle sensation douce et apaisante encore une fois, comparé aux racers, qui demandent beaucoup plus de concentration et de finesse. En bref, JE VALIDE largement ce pack qui s'adresse aussi bien aux débutants qu'aux confirmés qui découvriront de nouvelles sensations j'en suis certain.

F500 Aile volante VTOL (ADAV) Review Test Démo / Du bonheur, tout en douceur ... (39 min 42 sec)

NOTATAZ : 18.5/20 Sympa le Pack !

NIVEAU : Débutants et Confirmés .

Les + : Très résistant, Facile à prendre en main, Autonomie, Finitions.
Les - : Caméra légerement sombre et mériterait un masque plus performant .
