YAP EuroFighter 2000 - Re maiden 4-22-2007


Here is a broadband 3min video of the 'Re-Maiden' of the YAP Eurofighter. The first flight back in Feb was beautiful until I misjudged an approach and snagged a power line. Luckily it was an easy rebuild so I decided to add paint and pretty it up.

It flew absolutely beautiful and fast. Canards were toggled on and off at various times. Landed very hot and you can see something pop off the plane (it was only a piece of lead in the intake!) at the end.

Custom GBx Double 6T 22AWG, 20C 2100 3S, Spektrum, 30A ESC. AUW 18.1oz, 512g. Depron sealed with WBPU and talc mix.

*** EDIT UPDATE ***
I've re-edited and recompressed the video. It now uses WM9 *.mwv compression and should be compatible with a broader range of configurations.

Sorry it took so long to get this fixed but I'm glad you stopped by to check it out.

Looks good to me. I had an X-31 with canards, and I ran the canards off the rudder channel so I could move them alone, and programed to slave off of elevons w/ flip of switch (like yours is). I found their effect to be rather insignificant during flight.

Yes, your canards are moving correctly with your elevons. A quick check is to watch the leading edge. LE goes up, the nose goes up.

tailslide, I set up my canards on my Eurofighter the same way you did. However, for extreme manuvers moving canards offer tighter turns and loops (more like flips). Also, a ducted fan plane will fly differently than a rear prop driven plane. Toxic Toast's plane will be able to fly much slower and better utilize the benefits of moving canards at an extreme level of flight.

Toxic Toast, is this your own design? Will it remain a profile or will it be skinned with a full fuse? Good luck with the build!

Here is my Eurofighter,
Kevin.
