This a plane I've been working on for quite a while,
Modelled in solidworks with help from several threads on here, and made for 3d printing using inspiration from dirty dee's A330 build thread.
Never designed a plane from scratch and certainly never printed one, so how it will turn out who knows.

Plane is sized for parkjet type power system, as that's what I has laying about.
Wingspan 700mm.
Fuse length 643mm.
Weight of printed parts approx 550grams.
6x4 prop
5x 5g servos
25amp esc.
3 cell lipo, 2400mah.

Will add some pictures of the model and the 3d printed test parts I have so far.

Feel free to add comments, improvements, ideas,
Its all a learning curve.

This is a jet ive working on for a while now, the plan originally came from iphan here on rcgroups, who has kindly allowed me to modify it for my own needs.
So far i have put the plan into cad, and made parts of all the bits from the plan. enlarged it slighty and ended up with what you see below. i realise some of the parts look a little square, but i have modeled it in solidworks, which isnt the best program for this. but its what i know.

Iphans plan was originally for balsa and a speed 400, and a pivoting wing for roll control. I believe,several people have built it, and modded it for ducted fan, I fancied building a depron version, with conventional tailerons, although i may add ailerons as well.
The plan is to use 2mm depron for the skins and 3mm depron for the bulkheads, with a bit of carbon and a little balsa, wether this will work I have no idea. Ive scaled the plans to fit a 2212.06 motor in the exhaust cone.
Wingspan - 613mm
Length - 942mm

This is first one of steve shumates parkjets i built, probaly 3 years ago, or so,now. I've lost count how many times I flew that plane, think i retired it in the end because the stabilators broke on a landing.
It was powered by a 2212-06 motor....Continue Reading
