Vulcans do that by default

Actually I'm not convinced the washout on the starboard wing is quite right, so expect some issues with this one. My next one will be better (tm) hahaha

It's a delta. She will be just fine. It won't even need washout, but some is always better than none. I didn't design any washout into the Chimera delta and she flies beautifully. Deltas just don't tip stall like a conventional plane. You worry too much. LOL.

I love delta wing aircraft, but there are so few large deltas left... The Vulcan while being the largest Delta left flying (I think the B2 Spirit as a longer wingspan, but a smaller area), also has a weirdly "natural" shape... At a glance it has a bat/avian/raptor like look to it...

I never really made it very clear in this thread, but this model is an experiment, to allow me to asses the plans and flight characteristics of a scale Vulcan and EDF... My next one (will be Depron) I plan to make as a UAV, with full authority autopilot (air speed, accelerometer, gyro, compass and GPS, probably using the MBED as my uC... Probably with a 2.45Ghz video downlink)

I will of course start a new thread for that

Bloodline,

This is the first time I have dipped into this thread and I am very taken with your Vulcan and the work you are doing / have done to modify it to a modern EDF power system.

I am currently building a B2 stealth powered by 4 x 55mm EDF so I understand some of the thoughts going through your head around the build / power / weight etc.

Having seen this now makes me want to do a Vulcan, if the B2 goes in then I know what the equipment out of it will go into. Or maybe a Vulcan will be my next build incorporating the learning from doing the B2.

Wishing you all the best for the maiden.

Do you have a build log of your B2 Spirit!?

And your next build definitely has to be a Vulcan

PeterF's B2 build log

Vasan 55mm fan

The Vasafan link towards the end of the thread shows some of the tests I have done with Vaclav's 55mm beastie, more than 800g of thrust, probably the best 55mm set up (best meaning highest thrust / best efficiency) if you put the right motor in, but at a cost, 4 motors, 4 EDFs around 400 euro.
