RC conversion of the Flite Streak


48" WS version of the venerable Flite Streak CL conversion to 4 channel RC.....modified the airfoil, moment couple, and tail volumes...I know that it's been done before, but the aircraft from RCM didn't maintain the lines of the original....Fuselage this week...

Drawings haven't been annotated, and probably never will be.....

Nice!

Could you please give us more information? Was this the 35 sized Flight Streak? What is the intended power?

Yes and No...The original .35 Flite Streak (as well as the Combat Streak) had a 42" WS......this has a 48" WS. Both originals had close to 16% symmetrical airfoils. This one has a 12% Wortmann FX 76-120 symmetrical airfoil with a much lower Reynolds number than the original. Tail volume coefficients (Vv and Vh) as well as the moment couple have been modified to at least reduce if not eliminate Dutch Roll and porpoising, and still maintain a high degree of maneuverability. Planned power is a 3542-1200kV motor swinging either a 9x4.5 or an 8x6 prop, 65 amp ESC and a 2600 50C 4s Lipo.......Fuselage was modified to allow room for all the electrics.

Does that help ?
