Simple Cessna 310G

Got the bug to build one of the most beautiful Cessnas in my mind, the 310G. Love the swept vertical tail.

This is going to be a simple box fuselage and box nacelles, KFm2 wing, 4 channel with optional 5th channel with flaps. Have not decided about landing gear yet, but will provide optional fixed gear. 6" props and 250 size motors.

Just got all the major CAD modeling done.

Wingspan just under 37" and is 1/12 scale. Plans will be forthcoming on this one.

Ken, I think you just designed my first Twin Engine build!!

I went shopping for Motors already. Found these little guys:

16 Gram motor putting out 206 Grams (7.2 oz) of thrust from a 6x3 and a 2S. Seems like it might be a good fit.

They come in CW and CCW, although I'm not sure why... Is that just so the Quadcopter guys don't have to cross two wires?

Looking forward to the progress on this one.

Those have left and right hand threads on the prop nuts, nothing to do with motor rotation.

I thought of a pair of multirotors motors as well. The CW & CCW are so that you don't spin the props off from torque reaction. That way you don't have reef down on the prop nut to keep them tight (self tightening).

I am thinking a 2204 size would be just right. I am amazed at the power output of those 1306 motors. They are tiny.

I see now, yes, makes perfect sense. Thanks Guys. I never thought of the threads on the prop nut... Learn something new every day.

There are some serious 2204 motors out there. This one claims nearly 600G thrust at 10 amps on a 3S. Not bad for a 24 Gram motor.

It seems the multirotor craze sure has been good for the brushless outrunner market.
