Thanks for the fuselage profile and the dimensions. I was having some difficulty getting it right.

Something I was toying with. I'm planning to use these to build from. I think they are pretty complete but I haven't actually built from them so user beware.

Enjoy.

Someone has WAY too much time on their hands.

These are pretty cool. I would have loved to do something like this initialy but I don't have the "blueprint" software. After looking through the pages, it appears you have drawn it out almost perfectly!

Thanks for sharing. Is there anything else we need to add?

WOW! Standing ovation for that effort bullseye000 That is a truly professional result. I was working on some basic CAD drawings but they would have been Embarrassing compared to that outstanding effort, thanks alot for sharing.

Cutting one out now

You might want to add the dimensions of the top panel for the optional KF step on top (instead of on the bottom) If you want a 50% step, you will need to add a sliver of foam behind the spar (assuming it is at ~35%)

WOW! A+ Thank you for taking the time to do this.

Would it be possible to make a separate PDF of just the logos?

Funder & Lightning SPAD Edition


OK, spotted this and thought "Niiiiice", then I spotted the leftovers of the 8x4 sheet of 2mm Correx that I had just built a couple of Mugi's from and then I had a second thought (2 within the space of 5 minutes, must be record for me) "No foam but I have this nice flat thin stuff just begging to be used", so 6 hours and a lot of Impact gue later I have a Correx Funder that has a main wing that is 800 x 200 with 25% KF step on the bottom, 3mm carbon spar snugged against the step, a couple of carbon booms and a rear wing that is 400 x 100 with again a 25% KF step on the bottom. All up weight with a Typhoon micro 15/10 with a 9x6 prop, I am waiting for a speed controller to come (I couldnt bear to cannibalize one from one of the other planes in the 'Hangar') All up weight is 1lb and a 1/4 of an ounce (motor is listed as having 200 watts) so marking time till the SC gets here so I can maiden it, any thoughts on anything I can do to improve it while waiting for the SC to arrive (apart from painting one side, I have that in hand with some nice bright spray paint from my local hobbshop).

This is what it looks like so far ( the motor is not wired up yet but I have some bananna plugs coming with the SC so that will be done when it arrives)

That looks very rugged! Why did you make those aileron so very small? With them being inboard so much you might not be able to roll/turn very fast.
Oh, and get a propsaver, this gearless plane will surely break your prop in a few landings.

Gratz :)


Thanks for the advice JellB, the Ailerons are in 2 sections, 1 inside the boom and one outside, I can extend them all the way to the end of the wing if I need to (the joys of correx, bit of CF down the flute and instant longer aileron) I was going to try as it is 1st and then extend if the roll rate was not high enough, I take the point about the propsaver though, I have broken props before on gearless planes and it's a pain, I may look at at folder or even maybe make some nice light undercarriage, I have about 200 watts per pound to play with at the moment so a couple of legs with some light foam wheels shouldnt eat into that too much.

Thanks again

Bullseye,

Thanks again for the plans and quick logo add! This is what makes this forum so great. The Linux mentality of open source plane design.
