Well I know I promised you all I would make plans for the FF-117 soon. Well I have finished them and they are posted below.
Just a few notes about this model. It is a little larger than some of the other foamboard models I have designed in the past. So needless to say the motor and power system required is a little larger. If you are going to build the model with the heavier Elmer’s foamboard, I recommend using a motor of 400watts or better. Something like the Grayson Hobbies Super mega Jet or Turnigy 2836-2350 motor from Hobby King. That or any other 400watt or greater motor. I ran the prototype with the Turnigy motor and 6×5.5 porp. It flew at about 70+mph. pretty good if you want to keep it a park flyer. I am thinking a motor that can handle a 7×6 prop and a good high rpm would really wake it up. This model has a 26 inch wingspan, I may make a smaller 22 inch version later and I also plan on making a bigger EPP version in the coming months. So keep your eyes open for those.
Oh, if any of you guys decide to build one, please fell free to let us know your thoughts on the plans and plane. And also feel free to share pictures or video of your plane.
