What motor and battery are you using again?

Eric B.

Went back and looked. It is the Astro. Sounds great as far as power goes should be able to hand launch

Looking good Mr B! The F-35 sure has lots of room around the fan for linkages, servos and such. Looks like a good choice. With your OD Hornet already under your belt you surely have the experience to make this work.

Keep the pics rolling - looking forward to updates!

AirX,

I don't know a whole lot about the Astro, just bits and pieces I picked up from the Flying Styro F16 threads. The combo was attractive and seemed to have some history, this time out I wanted to limit any variables to the airframe only.

Thanks TN,

You're right about the space in the fuse, it borders on cavernous. Lots of room to pack on the weight and end up with a flying brick .

Okay,

I got the electronics placed and got to do some test gliding. Test glides were nice and flat at 25%MAC. I think I'll go somewhere between 25% and 17% MAC for first flights.

Rain washed out my hopes for a weekend maiden, so I'm still staring at her and getting more nervous by the minute.

Below I've included a picture to show the relative size of my bird and I'd like someone to double check my CG if possible.

I have a few tweaks to make to the CAD file and then I'll build a canopy (hopefully tommorow).

Thanks,
Mr. Boogie

Miscellaneous pics


Here are some shots of my microfan intake ring and a view down the intakes. The last pic shows component placement and intended battery location.

Ready for maiden!


Here she is ready to fly (hopefully).

AUW is 10.4oz after some control surface/vert stabilizer sanding and tape removal. Thankfully the canopy didn't add much weight.
Static thrust is 9.5oz on a freshly charged battery, giving me a T/W ratio of .91.
My estimated wingloading is 10-11oz/ft^2

All electronics including the antenna are concealed in the forward fuse.
Maiden soon.

You ought to paint your F-35 JSF to make it more realistic. Just a suggestion.

Willow,

It will get painted, but I never paint a bird before I fly it for the first time (anymore).
