FZ6: Building!


Looking for a new project.

Are there any flying wings pictures available as a waterplane ?

I would think that designing a seaplane hull would be right up your alley. Getting the step in the hull in the right location would take some research, but your wings look to be already well suited. Your turned down winglets could be pontoons. I can imagine some good ground effect landings over water.

Yeah, could take the FZ3 design and make the fuselag hull a bit higher so it acts like a float...

What is it that you want this new concept to do?
Very high speed flight -- or acrobatic flight -- or just an all around fly for fun model ??
Or something else?

Design specs (for change as we go along):
- runway take off
- nose wheel and tip skids preferred
- high speed welcome, but
- overall design has to appeal, example FZ5: good looking, fast and flies easy
- 2 ducted fans 70mm, each 2kg thrust, 2 batt of 3300mAh, each 500gr, total weight 2.5kg (my alltime high)

First attempts ..
Span about 1300mm, for transport thinking of having the dropped down ends loose (and secure it with a servo?)
