A new thread as it is definitely not going to use 50 mm fans, indeed it is not really going to use 'fans' at all but ducted props! Although a small diameter ducted prop is inefficient it is significantly more efficient than a true EDF so it can use lighter motors and batteries. the down side it need...

This new model has been buzzing around in my head for a while so I thought it time to start a new thread. [badass] I've been looking for a new FF scale project to follow on from the DH60 Cirrus Moth. Building the Moth and flying it has been the most rewarding modelling experience I've ever had. Watching,...

Just easier to position stuff with the floor of the aircraft open, it's much harder when the floor stringers are in. Particularly getting the instrument panels in the right place ;) Its quite small, so access is limited with the stringers there

You can't deny the effort and skill that must go into designing, building and flying this superb giant scale models. It was a challenging day for flying with the cross wind but nothing deters the pilots from putting on a display for the paying public.

I vaguely remember doing something similar with an ancient old B+D 9v drill, with the nicads built into the handle. When the battery pack 'died', i discarded it, used an external 'car-racing' pack (because it wouldn't fit inside), and fed it via the 3.5mm charging jack. It worked great for a while,...

There is some curve to the forward cheeks of the fuselage, always difficult to clamp so I use electrical tape, the stretchy stuff, because it has a memory it is perfect for pulling around curves. [attachment] Once dry you can apply glue and pull in the tail section. [attachment]

An EDF Vampire is not quite as good a subject as it might appear. Although it has a generous size area (for a jet) its small scale inlets are then coupled to an over size exhaust which means it requires a substantial set of underside 'cheat' holes to feed the fan. None of which does much for...

G'day all. Just a heads up that I posted the plan of the Veron Vespa to Outerzone. It's a brilliant little flyer and it also qualifies as an Ebenezer. Build it it a day, it is one of my favourite little models and with the little APC prop and lots of nitro in the fuel it goes up very quickly [badass]... [attachment] ...
