Jetstream 2.0 plans (mid-engine)

I've had a couple of requests to publish the plans for this bird......

My notes:

1. Round over the leading edge of the wing.
2. Tab and slot the fins
3. Waterproof (I used (2) coats of clear polycrylic). Water based urethane will work too
4. Add a little up and left to the motor (I used one washer)
5. Maximize the elevon servo throws and add expo for flight
6. Keep your hand out of the prop
7. Canopy pattern is close...trim as required
8. 6mm Depron or 1/4" blue foam would yield a lighter assembly (I didn't have any)...I used 3/16 PFF..Paper Faced Foam board
9. I used tape hinges
10. Jetstream 1.0 balanced about 3/4 " forward of the intersection of the trailing edges of the Klein-Fogleman airfoil. I used a 50% top. Jetstream 2.0 should balance about 1" forward of the same intersection.....the front of the fin terminates along that line.

Canopy hold downs are builders choice.....I glued mine down and cut hatches for internal access

AUW as shown is 27 oz. Wing loading is 7.66 oz/SF


Turnigy 2836/8 1100 kV motor
30A ESC with BEC
HiTec HS 82 MG servos
3s 2100 20C battery

One more thing.. cut in air intakes at the front of the canopy, or add a scoop

Another one more thing......DON'T USE POLYCRYLIC.......BRUSH MARKS !
