AUW ended 449 g. Flies well with the cam on top. Did not withstand a tree-landing (...those magnetic trees, you know).

Yeah, looking not so good anymore... but PU-glue and styropian-balls do wonders . Airborne again for the second life. Not a beauty anymore, but still flying.

Second life did'nt last very long... dumb pilot with dumb thumbs (me) did a (un) CFIT. Luckily got a last picture spitseconds before the final crash. Now the beauty is a beast ... waiting for resurrection. But a new baby is on the way...

This one is reinforced with balsa on all edges. Going for a semi-fuse this time. And of cause the right motor: 2212-06. The fins are still waiting for the right angle. Hopefully will last longer than the first one .
I hope this wasn't to much of my tomhe F22 story . Once again: thanks to tomhe!

very nice! I have the smaller 19" F-22 but follow this thread too. I'm so very tempted to build a larger (100%) F-22!!!

Went on with the paint job. Have yet to decide on some details. Thought of using the colors from the flags of my country and the neighbouring one (where i too fly)

F22 maiden


Today was maiden-time for my F22. Despite light winds, which grew stronger up in the air, I gave full throttle and did the "wing-throw" start. I was a little bit sceptical, because the AUW ended 660 g - a lot more than my first F22. But this one is a semifuse, reinforced F22, and with a (too) big battery plus 2 cams on it. After about 3 minutes of running time, I loaded 660 mAh back into the battery - this should give me nearly 10 minutes of motor-time in the air on that 2400 mAh LiPo. I think if I go lighter (a 1300 mAh LiPo and no cams), it will be more aerobatic and the flight time will be still around 6 minutes. One thing I experienced is that the controls have yet too much throw, as a "first aid" i reduced the throws to 80% and used 30% expo. But in the long run I'll change the connection on the elevon-horns to the more outerward holes.

Incorrect Scale or did I get ripped off?


Hi.
I wanted to build a park flyer F-15 and it said follow the instructions as that of the F-22. So I sent the pdf plan to our local printing company and instructed them to print to scale at 100% on A0 size paper.
It layout occupied most of the paper but upon closer inspection, I saw that the scale was in correct. I measured 3/4 of an inch on the plan when it is supposedly a full inch.
There goes $10!
I need some guidance to get the scale correct and give the precise instructiuons to the press. Please help.
Did I not get the paper size correct or was there additional information I missed to tell the press people?
Thank you in advance y'all.

Cheers.

It probably depends on their particular software/printer. I know when I take my plans to Kinkos they use adobe and just set it up to print with no scaling.

Take a look at the page handling section on the attached picture.
