Depron PILATUS PC-21 v2, VIDEO + PLAN ADDED


Hello guys...

I started build of own design PILATUS PC-21. It is very simple construction from 6mm depron, not very scale but I think that it will very good sport plane for fun. Here are pictures of wing, I will share more pictures later. My setup will be TURNIGY C2826-1900kv with APC style 7x6 E prop and 40mm spinner, ESC is home modified HK30A with 3A BEC, battery new series ZIPPY COMPACT 3S 1500 mAh 25C, 1 servo TURNIGY TG9e for ailerons and the same for rudder, one HXT 900 for elevator. Wingspan is 801mm, length 834mm. All parts are made from depron 6mm, in wing is glued carbon tube 5mm. I will share plan after maiden flight, if it will fly of course

Hmm, this sort of thing I have been thinking of building.
Fast, agile and good looking. All things I am not.

I have a spare HXT2835 2200kv inrunner kicking around. Would give it plenty of sting but may be a bit heavy.

You might want to flip those aileron linkages around. With the ball joint on the screwed on part it can rotate.

Otherwise this looks great. Any plans on making the plans available?

My is not entirely scale version. I was just inspired by the lines of the PC-21. I would rather call it sport plane according the lines of PC-21

VERY nice indeed, congrats.
I especially like how clean the rear end is! What have you used to cover the tail, stab, RE ? It Los like covering film being so smooth...

Yes, It's self adhesive that is used for billboards...very good material, light and adds strength to the depron...
