Quick-Build Profile Eurofighter Typhoon


Here are plans for a profile Eurofighter Typhoon. Like my other designs, it features the same type of simple tabbed construction for a quick and easy build. The dimensions for slots and tabs are made for 6 mm depron.

It is intended to be flown with tailerons only, but I've made out markings for a rudder. I've not marked out the slot for the motor, so you will have to mark that yourselves.





Data

Wing span: 73 cm (29 inches)
Length: 101 cm (40 inches)
CoG location: 12 cm (4.75 inches) from wingbreak
Propeller slot: Fits propellers with a maximum diameter of 6 inches

Build instructions

Use the MiG-29 instruction manual. The construction steps are exactly the same.

Plans

Plans for this model in PDF, Google Sketchup, and AutoCad formats, can be downloaded from http://rc.tomhe.net/eurofighter. The tiled plans are intended to be printed centered at 100 %.

Kit availability

Purchase your kit from 6mmFlyRC.

Consolidated information

Consolidated information on this model is available on my website.

That is awsome and is now firmly at the top of my "to do" list. The addition of the rudder will allow some high alfa for sure and if you make the canards functional who knows what this thing will be capable of.

Thanks for sharing.

That looks great! It would be interesting to see how it would fly with a canard.

Looks good Tomas! I was wondering where you were, you've been sort of quiet lately.

And of course, I'll just HAVE to do one! Any plans to have someone kit this?

EDIT - I've just printed the plans, and I have a question. What has happened with the motor mounting area? Normally, you have a recessed area ahead of the prop canyon for the motor mount, but it seems that was left off the current plans. Was that an oversight?

I know. I haven't had much time over for my hobby lately, but I'm hoping for some more time now.

I'll talk to 6mmFlyRC to see if they are interested.

I actually mentioned it in my post, but I didn't state why I didn't mark the slot for the motor: I figured that people use different motors and different mount options, so I tried this one without markings to let the builders have it their way. Let me know if this was a bad idea.

Ah, I missed that part of your post. Actually, for the scratchers like myself, this is a good idea as it lets us choose our mounting style. As long as the prop fits in the canyon, it should be OK. In fact, I like to make my motor mounts very secure, and I can easily cut out just the right amount of foam to fit my style. I'll post pics when I do it.

If by chance you do have 6mmFlyRC add this to their Quick Build series, I'm sure they could modify the plan to include the standard cut out for the motor.

I've talked to Colby and they'll have a kit with a slot for their standard motor combo ready shortly.

Awesome! From the 22nd to 25th of this month, we're having the 5th Annual Arizona Electric Festival. This event draws huge crowds, with over 200 registered pilots, all flying electric-powered aircraft. My fleet will be made up primarily of pusher park jets!

I really enjoy showing these things off for the crowds.

Power Combo


Hi Guys,

Can anyone recommend a power combo for this model, preferably with an internet link? Of course being in the UK, that's the easy way to do it!

Greatly appreciated and great model Tomhe, it's on the list. Oh my fiance just loves me covering the dining table with bits of depron.....

Thanks,
Kurt

The 2212-06 (or one of its clones) and a 30 A ESC are perfect for this model. Don't have a UK link though.
