If only they included a propeller in deal it would be a no brainer :) Looks the part,like the broad wings.

too many tails!

Comment by Euan Ramsay on February 7, 2014 at 12:40am

Is that flush servo's I see in the wings? If so, I'm surprised we don't see more direct-drive servo use. I understand there are packaging reasons to use linkages, but even still - would like to see more direct drive use - less bits to go wrong, and more aerodynamically efficient.

My 0.22 cents worth:

- Looks like no flaps, only ailerons and ailerons don't go to the wingtips

- enormous black aileron hinges

- twin vertical fins seems unnecessary and they're slightly out of the propwash (but they are big)

- added weight of extra fin, rudder, servo and hardware.

- empty weight seems a bit heavy

- 1500W, for what!? To test flutter? Go into orbit?

However notice

  • The sturdy undercarriage avoiding hand launching a buzz saw like the X8
  • Steerable nosewheel so you you don't fish tail all the way down the runway
  • Plenty of wing area for load carrying.
  • Upper deck to put comms gear on well away from the autopilot.

There are some advantages to this aircraft.

Ailerons do not appear to be direct-drive: http://www.readymaderc.com/store/images/AirTitan-01.jpg

certainly looks like an improvement from the penguin , really glad they did away with the clear plastic hatch , mind you the penguin with a few mods (quite a few) was a fantastic rugged hard wearing plane, mine is still going even after many hard landings , tree ditches and water landings , so maybe the titan will be the next level , might have to be my next project

It's taking so much self-control not to order one of these and drop an APM in it!  Looks to be a good ship for several applications

Don't worry we all have the same impulsive and compulsive behaviour on this blog.The only thing that controlls us all is available funds and storage/building space :) Go for it tell us how it works !
