FF-117 (rcFoamFighters F-117 Stealth Fighter Inspired RC Plane- Free plans)


Hey Everyone,

I just wanted to create a thread to share the free plans I made for the rcFoamFighters FF-117 and also create a place for others to discuss their builds of this plane. This is an RC plane inspired by the real F-117A Stealth Fighter. It is not 100 percent scale, I made some minor modifications to the wing shape and other things, but I think it is still close enough to give a good feel for the real plane.



Here is a link to the free PDF plans:
http://rcfoamfighters.com/FileDownlo...7-template.pdf

Last, here is a YouTube Playlist with videos about the plane:
FF-117 Part 1 (F-117 Stealth Fighter Inspired RC Plane) (9 min 56 sec)


FF-117 Part 2 (F-117 Stealth Fighter Inspired RC Plane) with Crash (4 min 35 sec)


FF-117 Part 3 (F-117 Stealth Fighter Inspired RC Plane) (9 min 25 sec)



Thanks and good luck to anyone who decides to build this plane.

Paul Petty

Thanks Kram242! I really like the F-117, and figured I'd try and make a plane that looked similar. I did make a few mods here and there, but i think it still has a good stealth fighter feel. Once I got the Elevons dialed in, it flew pretty good.

Roger2525, I do not have DXF's at this time but can probably convert some AutoCAD files to DXF. Are you looking for an untiled DXF?

I'll be watching and looking forward to seeing it! The EPP version will be a lot lighter and should really perform well.

Once again great job guys!
Love the look of this plane in the air. I remember seeing one do a fly-by at an airshow and I was hooked from that point on
Keep up the good work

Very nice jet. Any way to un-tile the foamfighter plans to full size. Looked around here but couldn't find anything to help. Any ideas?
