Some of my models

Just found this thread and thought you might find these models interesting.
Eurofighter is 10" span uses xtwin motors and vapor board mixed to give elevon control weighs 21gm without battery, looks well worn as it has been flying for about 3 years now.
I originally published the plan in the aatoolbox.org site.
Tigercat is 20" span uses ar6400 out of sukoi to provide rudder and elevator and speed controller with 2 falcon servos for ailerons, 2 sukoi motors direct drive without gearboxes, weight without battery 51gm. this is a prototype and will be using a moulded depron fuselage in its next incarnation has been flying for 18months.
My latest model is the Lancaster 26" span uses Deltang receiver to 2 spectrum linear servos for rudder and elevator, built in speed controller to drive 4xmicro J3 cub motors and gearboxes total weight including 190mah battery 69gm. The photo shows it alongside a standard Futaba servo for comparison.

Those are really nice, looks like you have the multi-motor down pretty well.
I like them.
How well does the sukoi motor work running direct drive? What size prop?

No build thread the Lanc was made using parts moulded in a domestic oven by my friend (Dr Chris) who is flying the second Lanc in the video, he has no intention of making any more. I assembled and painted mine.
No video of Eurofighter or Tigercat.
The Tigercat uses gws 2508 props direct on the 8mm motors but when I make moulded model will probably fit the J3 cub gearboxes with 3 or 4 bladed KP props.

Thanks for that.
The Lancaster is too pretty not to be flown outdoors though. How does it do with the wind?
I could just see placing a bit of cotton whisp trailing behind one of the engines for that "returning from a mission" look!

I think because it was too cold It was a 10min walk to the park from my house in -7c with the lipo strapped to the side of my plane. The lipo must have been ice cold by the time I took off.

The AP05 5000kv is power hungry at the best of times, but indoors I have tested it for 3mins at full throttle without the engine cutting out, it was probably good for more but I grew tired of holding it.

So the next time I attempt to fly her I'll pick a warmer day
