Airboat, That twin boom duck is sooo cool!! I love it. How in the world does it go fast without swapping ends? I am doing a face lift on my Ga, Goose but after seeing all the neat canards in the world, It is hard to stay focused. Charles

I post, thread dies!

Starliner Mk V


Thought I would toss in some pictures of my Starliner Mk V, the electric version. This plane is also all balsa construction and powered by a HiMaxx 2050-5300, a 4:1 gearbox and a 9x6 prop. I use a TP 2100 LiPoly 3S pack. The weight on the prototype came in at 36oz. It has a main wingspan of 48" and a canard spane of 22". Fuselage is 35" long.

This combo pulls 25 amps static and has a slightly greater than 1:1 thrust to weight ratio, yep it goes up!

Also, I would like to toss in an offer for anyone on this thread: I have plans for the Mk V available in .pdf files if anyone is interested. (FREE!) Just send me a note with your email address and I will send you a set.

The plans .pdf is 170kb in size, and the build instructions are 2 megs. The plans are not tiled for printing on a standard printer, they are set up for printing on a plotter, 36"x72" in size.

To be continued.....

Later!
Chuck...

MDKING: What's the latest on the balance job? Cwesh, I will send a PM. My current project is a face lift for the Goose. I feel like one of the auto companies because the same chassis will be used with some changes.I have some shots of the changes. Charles

Here's a question with active moving canards how are yours set up .....Ive looked at my plans for different models and they seem to differ ..my memory is also telling me that Ive seen a an article on a models where programed to behaved differently at speed to take off ...........is there any difference between Aileron controlled models and those with elevators and aileron's in terms of relative fore and aft control surface deflections ??

Three out of four - I cannot find a picture of a Predator yet....

Controls


All of my canards are controlled with ailerons and elevator and has left nothing to be desired. I put a rudder up front on the Egret and it works really well. Elevons seem to do well on deltas and flying wings. I have no desire to change my method because I want the positive nose up on landings. Someone in a previous post mentioned elevon control. maybe they will add something. Charles

Tram, Andy Lennon had his Canada Goose in MAN. He also had a Swan with no landing gear in there, I believe. His models were heavy and powered with glow engines. The Goose had a 0.35 pusher and was 4.7 pounds. Charles

Is the Swan the orange one on the cover?

I have ALWAYS wanted to build that airplane..

Andy always has some neat looking airplanes.. I would love to have a kit of his Robin.. http://www.mosquitobiteplanes.com/

One of the few planes I can see giving the Telemaster a run for it's money.
