I Made the b-17, It seemed to launch best from a wing throw. Its now in my tree. Lots of fun!
Thank you for the patterns. Made the Mosquito , the Mustang and the Sabre this weekend with the kids. That was fun. I think that we used crappy foam board however, so it may have affected the performance. We are in Costa Rica, so the selecton is limited. Still fun!
Thank you so much for the plans. My boys and I made the P51 this weekend and I just found these others! I am going to get the F-16 ready for my youngest to put together tomorrow.
Thank you again!
Love your designs, and I believe I am following your instructions on how to download and print, but all I get is one PDF of the whole plane , it isn't tiled. This is happening all 5 of the nnchuck plans I have downloaded. Thanks
I used to teach computer science..
Your cessna glider has potential for being an indoor micro rc maybe. I am looking for planes that can fly indoors in a 1-basket ball gym area for schools. Micro rx/esc/servo with brushed motors and 1 cell battery.....
I am retired with NIDA I started(North Idaho Drone Association) to help schools with stem. I like your designs.
I am looking for "slow flyers" for indoor winter flying in basket ball gyms that many if not most schools have...
The Night Vapor is the best so far....Micron Wings has some kits and I was wondering if you could make 2-3 designs for the winter indoor crowd that would start with a glider and then go to a 3 channel or 4 channel brushed motor flyer....
Let me know what you think...
If CG is 25% back from the leading edge of the wing and a quarter is 11 grams, 2 quarters are 22 grams. to get a slightly nose heavy , I used 6 1/4 ounce weights at 7 grams per quarter ounce is 42 grams...It seems very heavy. the horizontal stabilizer in the tail is very thick...I wonder if a depron tail wing might help.... This design has lots of promise but I would like to try building this with 3 mm depron and see how it balances out and in turn glides....The P-51 would glide but not very far. I played with the CG using 1/4 oz weights. These designs have great potential for public school but I am looking for gliding like white pages gliders, almost but in foam.
Problem..Wing width does not match the Space provided above the cockpit..
Wing width = 3.900 inches
Space above cockpit is 3.633 inches...
Difference is 0.267 inches....
Simplest fix..Make Wing 3.633 inches or
Add 0,267 inches to space above cockpit wing support base.
I am a retired school teacher who has 3 years of machine shop work. and I am used to working to + or - 0.002 of an inch
In fraction terms, this is 17/64 inch off.... 1/64th larger than a quarter inch(1/4)
Great job on the gliders and thanks for walking me through the printing process or I would not have been able to succeed.
