To all my friends "HAPPY LANDINGS"....




Inspired by Sanjay Rai, we started the build on this....

http://www.rcindia.org/electric-planes/pilot-%28ok-model-co-%29-akromaster-in-corro-and-electric/msg227435/#msg227435

AKRO2 Correx + Depron build blog by Allan & Deepak.

Started 14th Sep2015. finished 13th August 2016…

Sanjay inspired us; he probably churned out 8 to 10 models in between.. 


On wing construction;


Depron Wing ; Spar; Hard Balsa 10mm thick 30mm narrowing down to 16mm
Wing panels in 3mm Depron weighed 73 grams for pair
Covered in packaging tape the weight for pair was; 99 grams.
The wing without servos, ailerons, tips and mounting ply panels weighed in at 275Grams ( ie. Including ; Depron covered in tape and scrim, Spar, leading and trailing edge in balsa)

To all my friends "HAPPY LANDINGS"....




Correx Wing; Spar; Hard Balsa 12mm thick (approx ˝ inch)  x  4” wide sheets of balsa were used to cut the spars ; 2 pcs ; 69cm long x 38mm wide at the centre joint (Root)  narrowing down to 25mm at the tip to give it dihedral ( In order to make the Correx bend easier at wing tip this should not be more than 20mm!!!)
If you put the flutes lengthwise, the correx will flatten on the spar. So instead of an aerofoil, you will get a triangle… In other words the span should be 90degrees to the flute / parallel to the chord/  or the flute should run from front of the wing to back not left to right along the length (Span) (Length of wing is wing span and width is  wing chord.)
Wing panels left and right out of 4mm Correx weighed in at; 160 grams each
The spar joint with 1/8th ply at centre weighed 100 Grams. This would come out approx 160 x 2 + 100 + 20 grams servos + 45 Grams ailerons + 30 grams Correx centre brace and adhesive + 10grams  trim tapes = 525 Grams predicted
Looking at above weights, Allan’s Cap 232 wing with a similar span constructed out of Balsa covered with Orafilm with servos and wheels came it 392 Grams.

We decide to enlarge the chord of ailerons from 2.2cms on the Matsumoto’s scaled plan to 4 cms.
For this the ailerons were cut 1.5cms extra for insertion into the top and bottom sheets of the trailing edges.
In other words 5.5cms wide x 64cms long Correx strip with flutes going spanwise

Weight without Lipo; 1.53Kg


Wing Area in sq ft; Span (Distance in inches divided by 144 from wing tip to wing tip)               
               
Akro Master Wing Span; 27 x 2= 54inches               
Mean Chord; 9.5inches                
Wing Area; 54 x 9.5in =  513sq inches               
Wing Area in Sq Ft= 513 / 144 = 3.56sqft               
         

1.53Kg + .28Kg = 1.81Kg x 2.205= 3.99Pounds     ( Wt in Ounces; Wt in Kg x 2.205 x 16 )   

3.99Pounds  x 16= Wt in Ounces; 63.86 Oz               
                  
Wing Loading; oz per sq ft ; 63.86 divided by 3.56= 17.94 ounces per sq ft

Allan has built a similar plane in Balsa which has a similar wing loading and it flies a dream Lets see how this flies..
