Jetstream 3.0


I revised Jetstream 2.0....based on what I learned from flying Jetstream 2.0.

Motor mount has been strengthened greatly....plywood sandwich with a hardwood block. Motor was raised about 1.5 inches
Added a keel (no I didn't)
Reduced the surface area of the elevons
Revised the pattern for the canopy.....modeled the silly thing as a 3D surface/mesh and then unfolded it.....also canopy is now Depron. I plan to use magnets as hold-down's instead of cutting hatches.
Added a color scheme
Added a dowel to the nose, but that's optional.....

Revision: 10/4/2014.....The canopy adds longitudinal stability (stiffness) along the centerline of the aircraft.......so I'm back to gluing it down and cutting hatches
Also, I moved the fins out 5/16 on each side so that a 9" prop will fit better.

AUW 27 oz......28 oz thrust.....no ballast required
