schei die wand an......CFD was yesterday....

Our new development for pure F5D racing.
- Fuse made for 2s+3s up to 1800mAh... no room left
- all-moving elevator
- gill at fuse for improved engine/controller cooling
- calculated thickned up profile at servo section
- ... many more design features

WOW! Very nice!

Hannes,
I like the long nose very much. Plenty of room for those geared motors and speed controllers.

The all moving stabiliser is interesting too. How much throw do you need (a millimetre?) and how have you assembled the mechanism in the fin? Are you using a similar technique to this earlier model of yours: https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show...2&postcount=81

You guys have been very influencial in F5D design and I can see that is continuing!

Regards
Peter

watching with great interest.. I love some of those ideas.. not so fond of the all moving tail, how does it handle the loads at speed? Must have a very strong bearing system? keep up the good work guys!

I think that's the first time I've seen flow vis on a model airplane. Nice!

As I really don't like when they make 7% wings and stick the servo out with a big abrupt hump, I really like what you did here. It's nice that you've though of cooling the motor/esc too.

Hello Chris and Hannes,
As long as you keep inspired by the good stuff, there is no need to waste the precious glowpaint at your airduct.
Chris and me tested it several times accidentally at the red one below, with hot oil!
It works ,i promise!!!
BTW; the red ones front fuse end is made for 2x5S 800ccm,no room left aswell!!

F1 Teams use these paint in Fraiday's training session to check there new aero-developements in real life...

We tried it and it's really easy in handling and visualized our questions in an really easy way... Was our first try out and we are really impressed how good the results are.

Kwahn: Which name? Of the plane? Fornication5D

Regards Christoph

PS Yello: No room left? In the streetcar I agree but at the GTS-R??? Plenty of room!!!

Yes, but what made you choose the name? Intercourse between two people who are not married to each other? Where is the relevance? Sorry, it's not important but I have a thing for names and words in general.

Btw, very nice way to build the all moving tail!
