Hello RC-Modellers

already in 2017, I built a cartoon SR-71 according tho these drawings here - but I omitted to post some pictures here. I'd like to make up now.

Built from 6mm Depron, 2208 BL parkflyer setup, 8x4.3 propeller. I added blue LED for leading edge and red for after burner simulation. The blue lit engine inlets were locking awesome - but the way I built them, they were kind of an airbrake. It was a great looking flyer with - let's say - sufficient performance on 3S.

I always wanted to modify the engine setup, and change the middle mounted prop by two smaller engines mounted on the side... I did now see next post.

Cheers from Switzerland

Cartoon SR-71 - Racing Rabbit

So here's my 2nd edition ...

It's a lighter construction, built from 3mm DEPRON, intended for indoor flying. Powered by 2 x 9g nano brushless motor with 4x3 propeller. Thanks to my new plotter, it was easy to make it a little more scale. Maiden flight pending.

Cheers from Switzerland
