Build Log

Chris Gold mini Hunter

This is an old plan from the 90 ' for a Hawker Hunter made of pink or blue foam
wing span : 27 inches , length: 30 inches
I'm using a Alfa 5 bladed fan , Eflite esc and 3 Hitec HS 55 servo, Battery 3 S 850 -1300 mah .
Weight RTF is under 800 g.
If somebody is interested to build one I can made copy of the plan and send to you for the cost of shipping only.
I know you can oder the bigger version for a 70 mm fan with Traplet UK.
Chris Gold design the model for the Wemo micro fan but I enlarge the template (C) and I 'm using a bigger fan!
I'm glassing the model with finishing resin and .75 once cloth . The tail section is 3/32 balsa, coated with few layer of PVA tinted with red dye.
I will hand launch and not bungee.
Next is the video of maiden flight

We try with 3 cells , not sufficient power, but the glide was perfect and with no trim . 4S 1800 Gen. Ace was the ticket but my helper "dig" the plane during the hand launch phase.
Next time I will bungee the little Jet and post a video.
