Mermaid depron water/park flyer ***Plans***


Hi all,

Here is my new water/park flyer loosely based on the Mermaid M6 amphibious light sport aircraft.

Depron Mermaid on grass (1 min 36 sec)


The wing span is 1050mm (41").

Construction is all 6mm depron with some carbon and plywood reinforcement. I used the following equipment:

Motor: 2212-06 (2200kv)
Prop: APC 6x4E
ESC: 30A+
Lipo: 3S 2200mah
Servos: 4x Hitec HS-55

The model is a nice and docile flyer that can do gentle aerobatics. It easily takes off from short grass. I have not flown it from water, but taxi tests did not reveal any problems. I will update the thread when I get a chance to do some water flights.

Enjoy!
Marcel

Looks great Marcel, thanks for posting the plans and very detailed build guide. Do you have any flight videos? I look forward to reading (and hopefully seeing ) your water flights.

Thanks, Aus.

Vlesie,
This is just too sweet! I have to build one. Will be cutting on the Iron Phlatprinter. Would like to have a KF2 panel on the wing.

Just a great subject. Kudos to you,

Ken

Looks like it would make a great FPV ship as well.

Tiled Plans


Marcel,

Excellent work as usual!

I took the liberty of tiling your plan for both letter and A4 printing, hope you don't mind.
