Steve Tim Downloaded the engine files from Coolwind,great job.

A clubmate is building the C30 and asked if I would print the engine for him.

I have a couple of questions.

What is the average weight of your prints?

Any print settings that would help?

Hi all,

had a wonderful weekend with friends in Birkholz near Berlin. No autogyro flying at saturday because of gusty wind, but sunday I had 5 wonderful flights with my small C.30! I seem to have mastered this little cutie now

C30 EPP Autogyro Plans


The C30 EPP Autogyro plans are here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/vky68dndd...nav_tracking=1
Click on the "Download" button in the upper right corner of the page to download each page.

The link to them is on the Cool Wind site but it will take quite a bit of work to find it under "Link to Plans" on this page: https://www.coolwind.co.uk/product/C30EPP

The plans are also on the Downloads page under "Whippet Variations": https://www.dropbox.com/sh/vky68dndd...Mp-r0OuJa?dl=0

Another one under construction here, albeit with a small mod to the undercarriage due to a shortage of materials, but it will still work. I am going with a 3 blade set up as I have never got on with 2 blades. I’ll use my stock Whippit blades and delta plate. 10 mm EPP sheet is getting impossible to source in the U.K. so we are trying to do a bulk order from Germany. Failing that the next nearest is in the Ukraine

Have a look at Flexi Foam, I am doing a Whippit using it at the moment. I put a thread up under scratch built foamies. Good stuff.

Whoops, could get messy...

At work (UK IP addy) and looking for someone else (here in Germany) and searching Flexi Foam got me some Belgium sanding pads. Didn't mean them, this is the stuff: -

Not sure if it is available in the UK yet, if not, Vector Board from Graupner is the same stuff if you can get that.

Secured 30 sheets of EPP from a German supplier for our group. He tells me it’s on its way but no tracking number yet. Fingers crossed.
