hello
i used to have one slingshot and flew the hell out of it, over 200 flights, with a few minor incidents along the way of course. Gave it away to someone in the club who just took up the hobby. totalled it after a couple of flights. Never mind. Would like to make a new one and your design looks really good. Any chance you want to share your cad drawing? Thanks.

Nice jet Claus! Sorry to see the tip stall at the end. Is the model salvageable?

It wasn't a tip-stall at the end..... It was caught by some long and stiff plantation in the side of the airfield....

We will use the wing again.... and then make a new fuselage with a single tail instead of the twin tail booms.

this must be slingjet V


It is real nice to be able cut things CNC-

some details though have to be designed for cnc cutting, due to the heating of the material.

but take a look.

Claus, I'm seeing 130° on your ruddervaitors. 110° has worked better on our pylon planes forever. I've experimented with higher/lower angles, the planes never had good yaw control at other angles. Unless you have a ventral fin I cannot see.

PS: try Velocity's Cool 42 on 4s!

Those tail fins are only put on for show.
they are planed to be 100 degree.
this plane can handle 5000mAh 6 S and an output past 2 KW.
6 S on the 3200 motor gives you amp's in the 135-140 class.. and rpm's past 60.000
to me this plane is a flying test bench.

glassing wings/rudders.


i got an idea for having next to perfect glassing on the stabs.
I did an envelope of baking paper and place the lot in a plastic bag. A reversed fishtank pump did the vacum the overnight ..
It worked better than I could have hoped for, satin finish without work..
