An EDF driven small aerial vehicle for fun and relaxation

Hi

only lurking is no fun. So I got myself up and to post some of my ideas. I have built model planes all my life and electrics since the middle 70s and ducted fans (with IC) even earlier. To put fans and electrics together I had the best teacher one can imagine: Charly Binder, who built the first EDF using a Kress fan and a Geist motor.
I had some "diversions" lately but now I want to get myself a new EDF plane and since I also want to try FVP I thought to combine the two. This is a different plane from the one I described in another thread.

Have a look and tell me what you think.

Have fun...

W.

Hi Michael

why ARF? Try to make one yourself!! I have just started a blog where I will show and explain how to do it cheaply from foam, a few plywood parts and figerglass. Anyone can do it.

Regards

BTW, do you still do laser cutting?
Wendi:

I read in one of your earlier replys in this thread you would like to be able to do 3D renderings.
You might use this this link to download Alibre Design(https://www.alibre.com ). I tried out the demo last spring and really liked it.

They were running a promo were you could buy the STD version for $99 andI bought it last month.I dont know if it is still going on. I have no formal training in drafting so my skills are very poor but I bet you would pick it up very easily.

At any rate you can get the 30 day trial for free at this address:
