Build Log

OO7 JET! (Depron Bede BD-5, with plans)

Here is my 6mm Depron Bede BD-5.

Depron BD-5 (1 min 45 sec)

Span: 35"
Flying weight: 570g (with 2200mah lipo and rudder servo)
Motor: 2212-06 (2200kv)
Prop: APC 6x4E
ESC: 30A+
Lipo: 3S 1800mah or heavier required for balance
Servos: 2x 9g (3 with optional rudder)

CG position: 1/2" in front of centre of wing spar.

My control throws:
Aileron (measured at inboard corner): 17mm up, 25% expo
Elevator: 21mm up, 17mm down, 40% expo
Rudder (measured at base of fin): 35mm left, 35mm right, 30% expo

This model is relatively easy to build and looks pretty in the air. It does beautiful loops, aileron rolls and knife edge passes.

The only condition is that if you build one, you have to post a picture.


PS. Thanks to Steve Shumate for some of the building techniques used in the design.

*****This plane is available as a short kit: *****
