Here is an on-going project. This is a scratch built replica of my own design. As you can see there is still a lot to finish but I wanted to post a few pics just to show all the viewers out there what I can do.
The upper deck is "planked" with thin strips of balsa like you would build a canoe. Afterwards the area is lightly sanded to achieve an smooth contoured surface. Any gaps or imperfections are filled with spackle (or any lite weight filler compound) and sanded again. The result is a smooth seamless surface. This technique can be used to create complex shapes. With the rather small delta wing shape this plane will have to travel very fast in order to generate any kind of lift. A brushless/lipo motor combination will do the job I think......
Length : 38 - 40 inches
Span : 14 - 16 inches
Power : Speed 400 / Brushless / Lipo combo
This plane looks rather cool left unfinished....as you can see all the sub structure. This is why I have not finished it yet. I will one day.
