Finally a somewhat nice enough of a day for us to put another flight on the new Javelin Mk2. It's very windy however and cross wind too - I do hate Melbourne weather.

In this flight, I'm just getting the control surface angles and mixings dial in so we can input that into the autopilot. All live telemetry was recorded.

It flies really well and plenty of power and lift. Current weight comes in at 11kg with a design max gross of 16 - 17kg

Very cool! But the wind seems to be too strong even for a such big plane...

@Ryan

Great plane, I'm also a fan of inverted V-tail.

Did you designed the diesel engine ?

Is the design "open source" ?

Thanks all!

Yeah, it was very windy - always windy here in Melbourne

Yes the I design the engine and it's not open source - sorry.

 

Regards,
