Thread: Seagull radial rocket
07/07/2020 12:18:38

Thank you for comment, Ron!

Not - I'm not sure that is Seagull but is more or less Radial.
Can it be Rocket I will let you later.
Seems this aircraft is not so optimized for speed like ex. Sundowner....

Any way I've got it as burth-day gift and prepare for speed.....
I don't care that is w/o docs

Let me continue ...slowly the finish:

So for cowl's clear view:

And finally ...

prop&spinner&cowl front.jpg

and the AUW:

...meaning wing loading up to 108-109 g/dm2!
Flying/landing brick! many war bird models!

I calc the geometry and MAC and got the CG of 85-95mm in root.
Just the test fly will tell us more.

Stay safe, happy and lucky!

Fairy tale continue...

Landing gear is: not scale, too big, too heavy, bad tendency ....

So I've prepared a new box and reorganize the body ...

Even lighter engine and super lighter pitts exhaust (half the original) the recommended CG is trouble.

I plan to use glow power driver and second battery for.

And have to move both batteries in the tail.

Also prepared a receiver plate:

Thank you for comments and suggestions!

Finally choose OS .61 because of weight.
Of course later I can change it and cut around 6-7 cm from motor box....

And follow again the HAMLET question - What engine accomplish the name?

OS 61 complete 694g
SC 91 complete 812g

With ALL them I'm too nose heavy.

Any suggestion welcome! Thank you!

Respectively have had to pen the tail body .....

Stab glued -1

Stab glued 2

..and of course use HEAVY WEIGHT to save the geometry/glue in place...

..or say say a friend: "training brazilian as..." :D :D :D

21/05/2020 12:27:48

Also decide to change the mechanic of horizontal stab from 2 to just one wire.

..not opened but hidden :D :D :D

new stab mechanic -1

New stab mechanic - 2

Hi guys,

It is very beautiful baby ...  



I've decide to use lighter servos for wings and flaps - 26gr - Goteck DS9257.
Digital, ball bearing, coreless motor, lighter.

This way I have had to modify its places.

I've got one.
Can you share, please, the used servos, thank and AUW.
Where is your CG and how it is going with?
What engine will confirm the name? frown

I have SC FS61AR, OS FX61, SK110, SC FS120AR, RCGF20,
but suppose the engine weight of around 1kg will be not good idea for balance.

Thank you in advance!
