F-15 Eagle Park Jet


This was my second park jet, and uses the same construction methods and motor setups as the F/A-18 Park Jet. The F-15 is the easiest of all my park jets both to build and to fly, so it makes an ideal first park jet (or built-up foam model in general). When built light, it's a very docile flyeróin fact, there's at least one guy in the build thread that built this as his first RC model and learned to fly with it! Before attempting any of the more complex park jets (like the F-14 or Su-37), I always recommend building the F-15 first. The F-15 is so simple and has so few parts that it can easily be built in a weekend.

I've attached scaled plans below in the most popular sizes.

Specs:
Wing area: 257 sq in
Span: 27.9 in
Length: 42.3 in
Weight RTF: 16 to 20 oz
Wing loading: 10 oz/ft2
Motor: Grayson 2212/16
Battery: 2100 mAh 11.1V lipo
Prop: APC 6x4
Flight controls: Wing flaperons, full-flying horizontal stabilizer, rudder (optional)

Hey,
Very nice planes you got there, but I have a question.

Would your F-15 work, if i fly it with a 800mah2s batery? I mean would it balance out or wouldn't even fly?

P.S. Nice planes, keep up the good work

Thanks, akadas6. No, the F-15 really needs a 3s battery to fly respectably. With a 2s battery it would constantly be on the edge of a stall. 800 mAh is too light as well, you'll need a 1200 or higher battery for balance.

Oh, ok than, I should look for a beefier batery than.

But i still got a question. What the raw plane should weigh without it's electronics, and what kind of pull the motor should have to be able to fly this plane?

You'll want 1:1 or better thrust-to-weight ratio on this model for best performance. The bare airframe with no electronics weighs about 10 oz.

It's fairly easy to convert this model to EDF, but it does take some careful sizing of the airframe to the fan and also some modifications to the design. I haven't done so, but if you search the EDF and pusher jet forums you'll find several guys that have done so successfully.

No, not at all. Flaperons add a little extra manueverability, but the model flies great without them. Many folks probably won't even notice the difference.

Ok thank you. Would you say this model is good for a begineer in park jets? i fly other planes but i kindof want a park jet to move my way up to a EDF.

Yes, the F-15 is the ideal first park jet. It's the easiest to fly and the easiest to build. Good luck!

My model is the standard size, what I call 100%. So just download the regular plans. All of the scaled plans have the scale factor in the title.
