Knut the Flying Turtle


Hi.
May I introduce Knut? The flying turtle is very hard to find in the wild. So far only 2 flying specimens are known. To counteract an extinction of his species, you can find his blueprint in the files. I hope that in the future we will be able to discover some of his fellow creatures.

Here you can find a construction report (in German language) with several photos:

And here's a video of Knut:

Great design, don't see many things different nowadays as so much has already been done.

There was a lot of waggling however which could easily be stopped with a bigger rudder.

I couldn't understand the reinforcement on the plan (next to the rudder). Eventually i got it though, i would state on it ''NOT TO SCALE'' or at least turn it around so it is more obvious what were reinforcing. Note YOU know,,,,, but we DON'T

Love it, will make one.

Thanks for the feedback.

Yes, the first prototype wobbled. That's why I enlarged the rudders for version 2, shortened the model and added a bit more space.
The reinforcements in the engine area are helpful for collisions and landing. The photo should help to understand the reinforcements.

The Saurus Crassus is still in the optimization phase. Plans for it will follow :-)
