trying again......7.5"ws Semi Profile F22


Hi all. Back from a long break of frustrations with these little planes. Im in the process of building a tiny F22 with a 7.5" wing span. It has a mid mounted motor which is a AA jet motor with AA prop. I dont know the thrust it puts out but Im aiming at a 9-10 gram AUW. Its made mostly of 1mm Depron and a small amount of 2mm for the center profile. Airframe weighs between 2 and 3 grams. My scale doesnt calculate .01g. MI Minor rx, 2 micro acts and Fullriver 50 cell. I think I found the plans on the AA toolbox. The only thing I did differently is made the botton fuse section one piece.

I'm working on a F22 at the moment also, i am using AA parts for it. I have the motors mounted on the rearmost flaps but i think i will move them up to the vertical fins like on the Starscreamer plane...

It flies but i think the motors are too far back atm.
