Landspeeder - Final Final design for the Summer of Space - Now with Plans!!


I have a serious addiction problem. I can't stop designing space vehicles!!!!


I caught this article over at my second favorite webite www.gizmodo.com

http://gizmodo.com/5043286/drivable-...till-kicks-ass

My first favorite is www.rcgroups.com

Anyhow. I could not resist building one of these ultimately cool speeders!!!

39" Long, 23" Span. Making the main horizontal out of 1/2" foam instead of the regular 1/4"

CG for this plane is around the front of the windshield.

Pretty sweet!

Plans now ready for you guys.

Last/last Ha! You have had a productive summer, Luke. Feeling the force are you! Now that just calls out for ducted thrust to provide the initial "launch" .

Well i finally built it. Maidened today. And it flies awesome!

Here are the pics working on a video now. I suspect i will be putting the plans up soon too.

I am going to toss some paint on it so it at least looks like the Landspeeder.. gotta get some brown paint though!

Certification: it flies amazingly well, saw it with my own eyeballs! Albeit a little more altitude and agility than the original! 8^)

Wow. well done. That is very cool. I'm not a star wars nut or anything, but that's one of my favourite vehicles from the series. I was just thinking how cool would it be if there were 44mm edf's on the end of the wings and no prop!

Looking forward to the paint job.

Paint... ran out of red so i used a sharpie. Not as good as i would have hoped.

But at 50' away it looks great!
