fritzy Posted September 27, 2007 Share Posted September 27, 2007 Hi, I have just joined and hopefully you can advise, encourage me on my winter project. I have recently got into flying RC planes and thought I'd build something for next year. This is where it goes awry. I decided to build a plane from the computer game Crimson Skies as a large model then decided to make it a fueled RC model instead. The model (can't remember its name) is a canard with a pusher prop, bi-plane wings and If I can remember correctly a rudder under and below each pair of wings. I have no idea if it would get off the ground but it looks great so I have to try. I'm using the profile of the wings from my trainer, stable flight, good lift, forgiving etc. the motor from my trainer ( a SC46a), and rough dimensions from the forementioned plane. My aim is to get a look-a-like model that flies then improve the wing profile etc to increase performance. A friend is advising me on the building process but the designing is all down to me. Am I barking up the wrong tree or do you think I have a chance of getting it airbourne? I am looking for any data concerning sizes and angles and position for the front wing at present, all other measurements are being taken from my trainer. Obviously the fuselage will be rounded not box section. Any advice,tips,hints, encouragement etc will be gratefully received. I will keep you all posted on how things develop.
