Hi, i hope this works for you, it is not in scale so you can select the size yourself.

Tiled Plans for 30" Wingspan Batwing


For those of you who don't have access to a plotter here is the tiled plan of the 30 inch wingspan Batwing. I reworked this file to fit a 70mm EDF unit. The original plan at the start of the thread was for a 101mm EDF unit or larger.

Strongmankb,

Can you post UNTILED plans and I may have a question or two about how the parts go together.

Progress???


Noone has posted any recent progress so I thought I would show you the digital model I've been working on. Here are some pictures to spark your interest.

Here is the updated model with thrust tube and approximate intake locations. The oval intake is 3" long 1.5" tall and has a 3/4" radius on either side. The rectangle intakes on the side are 2" wide and 1.5" tall.

Nice progress strongman. In between some of my other projects plus the steep learning curve of all the cad and cam stuff I must admit I thought I'd quickly do this but... I had difficulties drawing up the parts and getting them assembled in 3d. I've got a better pic now and will try again.

What are you drawing in? I'm using Alibre and maybe you would share some files?

I like. But I think I'm going to scale down on this, I do not think a "flat" foamy will be strong enough on this size without reinforcement.
