Bigger version plans?


Hello again Spfd-e-flyer!

It was great meeting you today at the K.C. Indoor Fun-fly. Still can't believe all the neat models you brought there today. As mentioned the "Airsurfer's Big Brother" really got my attention and I'd like to build the larger version. I believe I've looked through all the threads, but only noticed 'plans' for the smaller ducted fan version, did I overlook plans for the larger 65+" version? Do you have any? Care to just e-mail them to me? Or do you simply enlarge the smaller ones already posted?

stzim@juno.com

Thanks!

Shaun

Just enlarge the planes to fit into the 24" x 48" blue fan fold panel.
I just glued the joint and taped it.
I added some lite plywood under the front nose to help mount the motor and batt.

Good luck, let me know how it turns out.

Unknown File Type


Hey Larry!

Thanks for the suggestion, just one problem - does a ".dwg" file open with Autocad? That's not a program that I have installed on my computer, but maybe some of the guys as work can help, I just wanted to make sure that's what opens that file type.

As always,

Shaun

P.S. I'm about to post the pictures from the KC Indoor Fun-fly in a little while on the http://www.jcrc.com website. I will post the video clips tomorrow evening. Several of you and your planes in there.

Hey Shaun
dwg. is an autocad file.
Here is a .dxf saved in R12 You might get some other programs to open it up.
I put all the stuff I had on it
Just use what you want.

Larry

Fan Size?


Hi Larry!

Hope all is well down in southern MO!

My bother (who works for an architectural firm in K.C.) has printed off the plans, but we still haven't got together for the delivery. I should see him soon.

In the meantime, Bill at Park Flyer Motors has a "Customer Appreciation Sale" that is starting today (11/10/03) and that includes the GWS Ducted Fan(s). I am curious to know which one you have mounted on your Airsurfer so that I can get the same (or similar or better) Ducted Fan. The two he is offering are as follows;

2030x3 Ducted Fan System EDF50A or the
2030x5 Ducted Fan System EDF50B

Thanks for your help and suggestions.

BTW, I will be down in the Springfield area during the week of Dec. 15 - are you guys flying indoors again? Open to vistors?

I used the original 3 blade Ducted fan unit
I think the B would be great though.

We are flying in the dome again.
Tuesday from 7:30am to 10:00 and Thursday from 8:30am to 10:00

We will see you then

The "B" it will be...


Thanks again, Larry, for the information. I still haven't made the jump to Li-Poly's for various reasons (mostly financial - I want to get the best possible charger and they are still quite salty) - I'm sure it will fly fine with my NiMH's. Perhaps I'll have it done in time to bring down there. You might e-mail me , PM or post me the directions to the building where you fly. I'm sure my co-workers will know exactly where it is as well. I'll order the "B" version.

SPFD, this is really awesome, what you've done with the wing and all. That's one sweet glide it has. You've inspired me to try my hand at it.

GPW- Horten-type wing eh? Sounds VERY interesting. I'll be intently watching for your report, as all of your creations that I've built have been excellent fliers.

Nice wing. I just had to build one.
Just finished the airframe(scaled to 84" : ) )

and then -- Ohhhh Nooooo, my radio doesn't have elevon mixing

i can mix the elevator with the rudder but would prefer to fly it with

one stick as I am a amateur hack flyer.

Does anyone have any suggestions for an elevon mixer that I can plug into my reciever?

Thanks Again
