One step at a time :)



Hey Buddy,

'Scaling' is a very loose term.
Do you have pre existing plans of the Tejas which you want to rescale?
Your Question can also imply scaling down the actual aircraft dimensions. In which case, you just divide by the scale factor.
For example, I have a WDM 3D locomotive with a length of 17350mm and width of 2950 mm. If I had to scale it down to 1:43, i would just divide both the dimensions by 43.

Try being a little more specific, please? Smiley

Tailwinds,
Prabal

I generally increase the wing area to reduce the wing loading and the wing cubic loading

Have a look at the attached threads where a plan of the real plane was modified for RC.. (the RC planes flew well).. You could use a similar approach

Hello guys.
This is kaushik

Tejas Mk2
Length 15m
Wingspan  8m
How to choose correct scale for this

Depends on
1. What your objective is
2. What power
3. What size
3. Estimated wing area, estimated weight, estimated wing loading
4. Power source, glow electric, rubber etc
5. Prop, ducted fan of jet turbine

And so on...

You have to tell us what you’re thinking of, to get useful replies.

Edit:
I presume you mean a flying model, not a static display model.
If so, do you have any experience of building/flying an RC delta/canard?

I suggest you start with a 1/40 scale (20cm or 8” span) model using 1/16” balsa for the flying surfaces, and 1/8” for a profile fuselage, to determine the CG position and incidence of the canard.

Best of luck.

Edit:
Hope you noticed that it is designed for instability  Grin
