Hi Mal,
 
That looks so good, like the radial cowl and the smooth lines of the cockpit.

Very very late, but here is my humble offering - only completed and test flown last weekend.. Better late than never, but better never late..

pa190001.jpg

Fully Dressed

pa120023.jpg

Naked...

AUW 810g (incl 2200 3S).

The biggest changes are intended to reduce drag, no undercarriage and a slimmed down fuselage profile (Sorry Steve).

And here is the broken prop shaft (failed on full chat on the 2nd flight)

Failed in mid flight at the circlip, note the granulation in the steel.

A replacement motor (3536 1700kV) on order from GC.

A few more photos here if you are desperate

Best wishes

Lindsay - are you from Milton Keynes? If so you will have to guard them against vandals!

Very nice tho' and imaginative! Have you any udder ones? Are they original spec or beefed up?

You can fly them in the Winter when it's Friesian weather!

Do you think that if you put a lightweight wire undercarriage on it that it would offer some protection for the prop and therfore the drive shaft?

Hi Ian

Clearly some protection, but it had only one previous landing which was very gentle (as you saw). I think it was a duff batch of steel looking at the granulation in the fracture. I suspect a harline crack formed when the circlip groove was cut and it was just waiting to happen.

I may be tempted with a monowheel..

A 4mm shaft simply should not break, bend reluctantly, but NEVER break. The prop blades should have sheared before the shaft failed, even if the motor had seized solidly.

Regards

Martyn

Sadly mine bit the dust too, well the top of a tree actually.

I wonder how many mass build webbits are still live and well?

Best thing is to just give them a ring Andrew.

I'm sure they are likely to still have 1 or 2 kits around!
