Arado AR-234 Semi-Scale Build


My brother (RudeDog) and I have been talking for over a year to joint build the AR 234. We will utilize a foam (construction/building insulation) cross section method for the fuselage, hotwire pulled foam wing and depron tail feathers. We intend to use the nacelles and power system from a GWS Me-262 kit…GWS BLM005A (3900Kv)motors, 22 amp speedies and a 3 cell 2050 mAh 20c battery. I used a 3 view drawing uploaded in cad and traced the line work and engineered the plan from there. Wingspan is approximately 44”…target weight is around 33 oz…if my calculations are correct that will yield a 23oz/sq ft wing loading. Rude & I have kicked around the idea of using a trolley similar to the one used on the early models…we’ll have to see about that.

I wonder if one of these could be converted into a slope version.
