Shrimp progress so far


This from Thomas' draft plan - no errors detected.
Only minor mods to suit materials on hand, no changes to shapes, structures or aerodynamics.
Made a mistake with the motor pod by not realising that bottom piece went below firewall, so sliced a bit off the bottom sides and my pod is a little slimmer than designed.
Working on final gear installation now.
A fun and educational build!
Thank you,
PeteM

It's another very good design by Thomas.
Finished some hours before leaving to Edersse, has been tested on stage!
Since the video Thomas published, mine is finetuned and flies very well! Let me one day and I publish details about this 120 % version

My 120 % shrimp from Thomas' draft plan.

I found some 8 mm depron 2 years ago...

I had some electronics sleeping in a wreck: Turnigy D2822/14 - 1450 kv, 25 A Esc, 4 pces 9 grs servo's, 3S 1000 milis.

Some calculations.. and I decided for a 120 % version.
Wingspan: 80 cm
Finished at 440 grs rtf with battery.

The pod is not difficult to install on the wing: thanks to the template as drawn on the plan and I reinforced this templates by side plates.
I attached the pod with tape before placing the BBQ wood sticks. Because of the more powerfull motor, I places 2 in parallel at each point. Gluing with PU glue and some water. It's the strongest gluing you can find with depron.


Pleasure to fly.
