Plan BlingBlingv3 by Didier

Thanks to Didier to give permission for publishing and Prop-er for his Rhino work to digitalise the plans for this GREAT F3P plane!!!

This plane is designed and flown by Didier in the Dutch and German F3P championships earlier this year.

VERY neutral flying design with almost the same surface area in vertical fuselage and wings, almost no need for rudder in knife edge, great performance in rolling figures.

Recommended AUW is 120-130 grams, best light servo's are the Dymond D47.

Have fun!!!

Edit: Here's a pic of Didier's BBv3:

This is Didier's model:

And here you can see Didier flying it at the Open German F3P Championships:

The Open German F3P Championship can be seen as the 'unofficial European championship'.....

Aito, Smove and Snowflakes are biplanes, all others are monoplanes.

All BlingBlings are all flown with a 96 wind Strecker 195 03?

They chose for less Amps/more Volts
The 3spacks could be at the same weight as other used 2spacks because of the less Amps draw....

The Data was collected at the qualifier (North) for the German open indoor champs.

After that contest I changed to Didier's new V3 design and used that plane in the finals. The change was dramatic! At the qualifier I just barely made the finals with only 1 place to spare. (9th position of 10 spots to go trough to the final.)

In the finals I used the V3 design to improve to 5th place in a field that comprised the 10 best pilots from the North and the 10 best pilots from the Southern German qualifier.

I feel the V3 design contributed to the improvement. My V3 used the 2cell 74wind motor and 2s Etec 450 lipo's.

Here is a video of one of the rounds in the final.

As you can see I used a more rounded nose for esthetic reasons only.

Right...The scaling of the A0 and A1 sized plans is incorrect. I have taken these plans OFFLINE, and will fix them tomorrow morning. (I don't have acces to the model right now...GRRRR).

Sorry for the inconvience.

is it flying time?

No need to be sorry. I appreciate your taking the time and effort to do this. Thank you Didier for making your design available.

What kind of bracing is being used on the plane ? Looks like some carbon bracing underneath the fuselage , and maybe some kevlar or monofiliment on the tail , but I'm not sure about the wing bracing . Anyone have info or have a picture underneath to show the bracing ?

This looks like a really nice design.

Thanks, Dorin Luck

Here are two pictures of my 63cm span model based on the BBv3, this model uses an 8 gram Strecker motor and a 17 grams 2s300 lipo.
Lightened D47's directly soldered to lightened RX and a CC Phoenix 10 with lighter shorter cables.
The crossbracing under the wings is 1mm carbon, bracing of the tail can be done with 0,5mm carbon.
The center of the cross under the wing is connected with a standing rod to the wing.
Dick and Bert van der Vecht came with this light and torsionfree solution...
And yes, we have red 3mm depron over here, it's sold by Graupner
