Depron Airco DH-2 3D model


Made a 3D model of my Depron Airco DH-2 in scale 1:12

The plane is built and test flown. CG 40mm from
front edge of wings.

Hopefully somebody may find this useful even if
it's not a exact scale. In my view it may prove
to be a useful aileron biplan trainer with almost 3D
capabilites. Used 5g servos on elevator and rudder,
one 9g on the ailerons.

I may provide a drawing later need some more time
to do it "complete"

Note: The 3D model is in ACIS format (.SAT extension)
there are free viewers for this available.

Very cool. Here is a little inspiration for those who want to build one.
Made entirely of Depron with carbon fiber tail booms.

Thanks for the comment :-)!

I think I will try to develope this pusher to a more efficent plane
before I publish the drawings. My version has a lot of drag and is
rather energy inefficent (needs a lot of power for flying).

Tried to do a video but I need somebody to help me do a proper
"shooting".

Anyway the plane has potential to be a funny little biplane trainer
or maybe as a WW1 combat model (it is in scale 1:12)

Replaced the wheels with floats recently and I was able to take off
and land on water. Such that it might be even a seaplane trainer too.
