Nozzle with declined vector pulling on EDF

Nozzle with declined vector pulling on EDF (on Mig-29 )

Weight sniffled - 12 gramms (while)
Corner of the tumbling - 25 degrees (i.e. in both sides - 50 degrees)
Elements management until they are installed.


- diameter to pipe external: 79.9 mms
- diameter external: 84 mms
- diameter of the pipe internal: 76.7 mms
- diameter of the internal bushing: 30.7 mms

And else some data...

- weight of the installation: 111 gramms
- diameter of the motor: 30.6 mms
- length wire from motor: 80 mms
- pulling (3S1P) - 808 gramms
- maximum current: 35,2
- speed of the flow - 36 m/sec

Shall try pulling on battery 4S1P.
Think that pulling will be greater ~ 1100 gramms.

Rest details here .

Not a bad need an lightweight extra inner liner that reaches jsut past the ball joint area to keep the area of the thrust tube as near the exact constant taper as possible. The sudden cross section area increase and decrease as the eflux passes the duct ball joint is not a good idea.

I think the airflow can be very disturbed in the thrusttube and an amazing ow efficiency can be achieved . How about vectoring the complete fan?

Good luck!

Yes, you it is correct have said: 2 PET bottles (1,5L), industrial hair dryer + little skills .

And all ready.

No nothing complex.

Thanks, Val.

Are you planning to sell these? Or, did you develop this for your own models?

Do you already have a model to put these into?

Previously than something speak, conduct test 3-h design.

If one will be ingenious - shall make to order.
For checking the work device will are installed on model S-56 -

First two variants can not show - are not made completely (is broken milling tool - repair).

Yes, I remember the first drawing.

I think that variant 3 is the best for models. It is simple and reliable. Variant 1 looks like the real nozzle, but I think it would be too delicate and easy to break.

I like the work you and Sly Tom Cat are doing on the S-56. It will be a very nice model.

All faithfully - most idle time decision - 3 variants.
But difficulties in selecting the bottle PET - since connect the detail together much it is difficult.
Possible easy rumple them when joining.

The Joint, apropos, is oiled by special machine lubrificant for mechanism, running on big load.
Displacement has made drunk much lung, necessities effort ~ 5 grams.

P.S. My apologies if I some terms and determinations write wrong - little practical persons of english.
