It may take a little longer Steve as i have hung up the building gloves for a while......however I have bought some FMS 50mm fans for the the model which are lighter, cheaper, and more powerful than the Dr Mad thrust I was using

It only seemed right to enlarge the 50mm EDF version of Concorde to larger size and use the superb FMS 70mm EDF units.....picked up 4 of these from Banggood for £35 when they were on offer....delivers 2.25kg of thrust on 6S so 4 of these we should get upwards of 9kg of thrust.....The span is 49" and the length is 8'

All now laser cut and ready for me to build....not promising a quick start on this one but l'll keep you posted if any progress is made

I dared to hope I could manage the 50mm version if it came out as a plan.

Must do more flying and learning. And get a bigger shed.

didn't Skyway Models do a Concorde many years ago, about them same dimensions, so would be great to see one again.

Iconic aeroplane that should still be in service today

Thank you Josip and Greeting!.....hopefully it will be a success and based on my previous up-scaling antics, they do perform better the large they get....

I dont remember there ever being a Skyway's Concorde but I remember a Robbie foam version and of course the COX peewee pusher plan from the 1970's

Yes, I have the old Concorde 'Cox Pee Wee pusher plan', must be one of the first I bought - but never built! Would be nice with two 50mm FMS fans, simpler than four fans (I am not a purist!). Perhaps best built of depron, to keep the weight down.

That is tremendous!

With all that thrust (and weight?) I suspect it will fly fairly fast.

Strictly of course the visor should come down as well.wink 2

Amazing, awesome, lovely, fantastic.

The 11am Concorde roar was part of my schooldays. Occasionally spotted her coming back on a balmy summer evening, a high and silent dart.

Is this one the 50mm EDF, or the big one?

Really awesome Tony, well done. Can we look forward to a plan in the RCM&E Special later in the year, by any chance?
