Hornflankful


i've always like the lines of the f/a-18, su27 and mig 29. so i drew this.
none of it is to any scale but it looks most like a hornet.

- 24 in wingspan
- taileron

hello Ray, yeah, i hope it works too!! i don't have a taileron plane. but if there is a reason why that's not a good idea, i'd like to know and why.

Or am I...
COol. It needs the intakes of the Su-27 in it tho. looks a bit empty with no intakes.

i didn't want intakes because i was thinking that this plane is a pusher with no need for an intake.

it flies


merry christmas to you too!!

here's the finished plane, some details and maident flight report.

final wingspan: 18 inches
auw: 6.8oz
motor: cd rom 18mm stator, 5x5x1.5mm n50 12pc nsnsns..., 13t 26gage wye, ball bearings
control surfaces: taileron
servos: gws pico (2)
receiver: gws pico
esc: castle creations phoenix 10
battery: thunder power 3 cell 830mah
amp draw: measure 6.8amps

maiden report: i had too much up elevator and it went up pretty quick at 3/4 throttle. i also had to trim it left. otherwise, it was great to fly and normally i don't do any stunts at maiden but it loops, rolls, immelmann, split s, cuban 8, half cuban,verticals, inverted with no problem. 9 minute flight. very stable. pretty good speed too. good glider too which makes landing very easy.

hello Uttam, if you count the leading edge root extension and all of the flat area behind it then the wing area is 150 sq inches. if not then about 80 sq in. the cg is about 1.6 inches from the intersection of the wing leading edge and leading edge root extension. if you want pictures i can supply.

i really like your micro brushless motors!!
