Lockeys Viking EDF version


My friend Lockey from Perth Au has designed some great flying delta format models.
Most are for Pusher Prop but he has recently added an EDF version if his Viking.
All are similar to the Polaris, Viggen Sea Scout planform.

The thread is here and begins with development of the pusher prop version but it finishes with the EDF,

I decided to stay with the post under Foamies (scratchbuilt) .. because thats what it is really, if anyone is interested, here is the link to the thread .. https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show...0#post43157595

its an EDF version of my Viking pusher prop .. sea plane or slide on grass ... no undercarriage needed

This one has a 100mm larger wing and a proper airfoil .. I am using a 70mm EDF although I would think a good 64mm EDF would power it OK

Unlike most EDF jets, this one has the jet blast (or EDF exhaust) directly over the the control surfaces ( rudder and elevator) so this should make for better slow fly handling and better ground and water control
