Hi RC

Thanks for the offer, I would love to see/hear what other people are making from these. I understand that putting one of these together is still a drain on people's time and resources, so I appreciate any feedback that you can give.

The new A4 designs are supposed to still be built from 2mm depron, but you may feel that this is a little flimsy, please let me know.

All the best

Hi All
 
Just posted A4ACROBAT1 on the site, wanted to get this out there, I think this may be one of the best yet. For those who have given me any feedback about the plans, thankyou, I'm trying to incorporate your ideas, this one specifically about the lack of fuse stiffening on some designs. Remember though, these are meant to be ideas that you can add your own spin on, not cut and dried ABC.
 
I hope you will like it.
 
Fly and enjoy!

An update: Just realised a better way of doing the wing/fuse fix, so the pdf is updated now

Hi All
 
Just completed a new plan, A4VTAIL1, it's on the site. Two configurations, vtail and fin. Look at the pic and line up the letters for part orientation etc. I hope you will like it, please send me a pic if you build it.

Airlightrc.co.uk for super light depron foamies



Hi All

Just posted a new plan, A4GLIDER1. The A4's are still supposed to be built from 2mm depron, but if you have any other thoughts please let me know.. It's intended to be ultralight, don't forget, so stick the stiffening only where needed. With this one, I'd suggest the 2 wing rods and a couple of carbon strips (or whatever), one under the fuse on the flat edge, and one buried just above the wing line.

Any pictures greatly appreciated.

Fly and enjoy!

Hi All
 
Just uploaded a new plan to the site. Line the letters up for orientation etc. The new site is coming, but slower than I wanted, as I've decided to reformat the plans to go on the new version. I hope you will like this one, remember this is still 2mm Depron, or similar, for a super light aircraft. There are a few options on the power plant - I'd like to try embedded props on this one, but you will have to choose your own position. I think 2 edfs fore of the elevators might work, and theres always the obvious up front prop option.
 
Fly and enjoy!

Tiny error, I managed to forget the nose piece on this, so I've just updated the pdf on the site. The 'ruddervator' pieces are a bit smaller, but I think they will be the correct size now.

Hi All

I just wanted to get this out there, so the pdf isn't finished yet. This one is based on a 'real' design, the Super Falcon, and I just wanted to try my hand at something you might sort of recognise. I'll post the updated pdf soon with labels etc. Please let me know if you like it, or any further improvements.

Fly and enjoy!

Hi All
 
Just uploaded a new picture for this, it's about a third of the way down the page on the site. This one is a bit more involved build wise, although I think you can get the idea from this picture.
 
I hope you will like it. Fly and enjoy!

Hi Gusty

Still sweeping up some ideas that have been sat around for a while (got about 40 of these, so I may have to leave some alone). You're right about the sizes - I don't think people have the 'micro' bug that I've got (yet), so my newer ones are tending to be larger templates. I'm working on a 'Raptor' (F22)-like layout right now (still an A3 template), so I think I'll be building some bigger stuff soon.

Been looking around at the things people are putting out - there are some fantastic designs out there, so I may concentrate on using/learning from others for a bit. I love the Raptor, so I may build myself one. And the Mig29, and most of Steve Shumate's stuff..... time is precious though, and funds are not unlimited.

I'll keep putting stuff out as it gets finished (although I've come up with 3 new designs in the last week, so good luck with that one..) and then they're there if anyone likes them.

Hope this finds you well, happy flying!

madaquif

welcome, your color coding idea is good, it is like Mac burger, just pick it up and shove it into your mouth, joy is when you bake the bread make the "Tikki" and put the "Bun Tikki" (That is all that Mac burger is, anyways) together yourself. all the best, do some reading while you are here (See for "Gems" on top, not the eating kind)

while you are at it, stop using SMS language, hang around you will learn more

Once again Welcome

Hi Madaquif

Thanks for your feed back, I'm continually trying to improve the designs and the way they are presented, and I'll consider your ideas about the colour coding, but bear in mind that I try to develope these as the simplest layout that I can create so that they don't hold a lot of confusing information. Also I'm not sure that I want to include colour - what if someone only has a black and white printer? May be a symbol is better.

Have you looked at the later designs, with the letter coding? Basically, if you cut out the design on paper then hold/tape the bits together with the same letters close to each other you should get the idea of how it goes together. Slots and cutouts should be obvious, so if they aren't please let me know. I try to stick to a very similar pattern of layout - wings (mostly) have slots, stiffeners have slots, and if you take a look at the generic build log for the Learner model (first plan, blue icon log file), you should get the idea of how these are constructed. I think another one is probably due, to show a later, more complicated design going together, but have you looked at all of the pictures in the albums? They should help with a lot of your queries, even if they don't show the exact design you are looking at, there may be something similar.

I'll try to develope something more obvious, but if you consider I've got around 150-200 plans to go through, it may take some time to cover all of them. Try the lettered layouts, because if you get these you may then understand the ones without this format.

I ask this every time but have yet to receive anything - if you do build one, please can I have a picture? Just to see how others are approaching the builds.

BTW, what is a 'bun tikki'?

Fly and enjoy!

If you have enough time to modify exsisting plans with numbering/lettering ....m sure it will help new Enthusiast with our hobby...

Hi Madaquif

I have some more pictures somewhere of the point I'm up to with the Learner. I'm not sure if this is clear or not, but this was the very first design I did, trying to fit everything into the template size. It flies well, and for mine I added just a couple of coffee swizzlers from the Golden Arches (cut down) to keep the thin fuse rigid. I'll see if I can find them for you, though I thought I had already put them on the site, appears not. Mine is being rebuilt, though not quickly, and I'll let you see it later. If you are interested in indoor flight, why not try building this from 2mm depron but cut from an A4 size template (print the design on A3 if you can, scale 1.41). This will give you more options for stiffening, and a little more leg room for servos/actuators etc.

Thankyou for your offer of pictures, you will be the first.

Fly and enjoy!  Smiley

Thanks utkarshg13 & shobhit17, it's a long time since anyone has put anything on here, including me. The site has a lot of new designs now, and I'm working on keeping the build pictures up to date and a bit more intersting, with new colour schemes just to brighten them up a bit.

If you do get round to building something, you'll be the first, ever (or at least willing to show their hand), so claim your place on here with some build pictures. Thanks again for looking in.
