Heiko Schiffers Airbus A-380

Just wanted to let you be part of the successful maiden of Heiko Schiffers Airbus A-380. He built A-340 and A-330 from rauch-airliner.de short kits before, but this one is completely designed and built from scratch.

He built the model alongside our development of the Midi Fan100 fans, and the very first four units of the first batch went into this model, which maidened on June 10th.

Specs:

  • Scale: 1:21
  • Length: 3,50m
  • wing span: 3,80m
  • AUW: 24,5 kg
  • Functions: Elevator, rudder, Ailerons, 4-part flaps, 5-part retracts, lights
  • Drive: 4 x Midi Fan100 evo / HET 700-68-900
  • ESC: 4 x YGE 90 HVT
  • Battery: 2 sets of 2 x 6s 6.500mAh
  • Flying time: approx. 10 minutes

Let's see. Might have to take out a second mortgage for one of these.

What's the wing area?

That wing loading should be fine at that size.
