Hey everyone, just wanted to share an email and pictures from Daan Bourdri of his RCFF Delta Wing. Pretty cool.

—————————————-Daan’s Email Below————————————————-

Hi Frank,
 
I charged the battery and it has definitely more power.
But when i showed my plane to a neighbour (who is also in the rc world) he said: i think you have the prop backwards.
I thought: huh?? i turned the prop around and i gave it some “gas”…. and FOOOOT!!! now it has more power than weight!
haha i never had thought that i made a mistake with the prop LOL.
 
and in case you can’t see the components well here’s a list:
Motor:   BL 2212/6
ESC:     30A
Battery: 2200mAh 3s1p
Receiver: Airtronics 8ch (i know it’s overkill :P)
Servo’s: Right out of the box of the transmitter (sanwa SRW-102)
transmitter: Airtronics RDS8000
 
Tech. data:
Weight of plane (unwrapped) :837grams
Thust: 875grams
 
Yet again THANKS,
 
Daan
 
p.s.
Here are some pictures and a small video from my foamfighter.

Hi Paul and frank
 
Here is a new design of mine
 
a blom & voss AE 605 a german x plane that never left the drawing board
just made it, it is a proto no plans yet. the actual maybe a bit lighter (more out of one piece = less glue)
its wingspan is 66 cm
weight around 600 grams +  21-22 ounces
super mega jet engine and  a 3s 2200 lipo
 
it is a hand full but lots of fun.
hope you like it.
  
regards
 
Noel Soudant
