Seawind parkflyer ( plan and model)


Hi everyone!

I have got a opportunity to share my design's plan by Icon_A5 https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show....php?t=1211295
That is my'second bird, my first project is The Seawind, and today I wanna share with you :

Seawind come with 2 option:
- wing can remove :http://www.megaupload.com/?d=UPB59JWK (PDF file)
- fix wing : http://www.megaupload.com/?d=O41YCBOP (PDF file)
- Assemble drawing : http://www.megaupload.com/?d=O41YCBOP

The Seawind with wing can remove is a plan delivery because I must ship this airplane for my friend. If don't like to transport , fix wing is a better choice.

there are some spec and imagine of her:

Spec:
Wing span: 1000mm
Length: 890 mm
Weight RTF:520-550 gram
Wing area: 16 sq.dm
Wing loading: 32,5-34,4 gram/sq.dm

Electric:
- Motor 1400kv + prop APC 8x6 or Motor 2200kv + prop 5030x3
- ESC 25-35A
- Battery: 1500 -1800mah
- Futaba 10c with ASSAN module

Control:
- Ailerons
- Elevetor
- Rudder

Very clean and relatively easy build, that prop looks a bit small though and the mounting is big enough to obscure a lot of air flow, can you try something bigger?

thanks for your idea!
you can fly with 2200kv motor and 5030x30 prop, I had been fly with them! but it is not a best setup because the out put just 80-85%( I think) cause the necelle scale (don't have the nose of prop)

If you are pay attention seawind fly image. you can see longer prop because I use 1400kv with APC 8X6, a litter bit slower but she fly ok!

kylevn ... any chance you could provide a pdf (if/when you get time). I cannot open the DWG with anything I have.
I fly the Seawind EP but find it a little fast for my aged reflexes but yours has only about 2/3 the wing loading - which will be more comfortable for my internal CPU. ... Bob

there are some image:

printed the plan:


start with vertical tail:








Finish but not yet sanding


the second is main fuselage




Two side of the main fuselage ,




nacelle:


use heat gun to bend the bottom nacelle fix with nearly vertical tail


Sanding the vertical tail :


install bottom nacelle plane and try to fix with main fuselage


After glue servo with 50cm wire:





The plane is very easy to build because everything can fix together with the support of dap!

I thinks so, they are the same structure ! I like the Polaris of Steve Shumate so much! that is a perfect plan.

Looks great, I have a scratch polaris, this also looks very interesting!!

It looks like no camber in the wing, can I ask why? Would you think an airofoil whin would be beneficial?

Kim

@Kim:

My first Seawind is a wing with airfoil and hieral, but I can't feel the different between them ???
Maybe some mistake from me! I'll try to correct and test again!
