I don't really like to talk a lot about what i make, but i can answer all your questions that you might ask in your comments :)
here are the photos, self explanatory :)
Rock on! :D
Whispers: I’ll pay for the beer and even throw in some dry ice if you have to take the trip down there :-)
That's the sprirt !!
sure it isn't an ideal design, but a good autopilot should be able to make it fly, remember the F117 would fall out of the air without computer control.
and if it blows up mid air, make sure to post a video. :D
I will be very, very surprised if you make this thing fly. And if you do so, I will personally come down with a cold beer if you make it land in one piece :)
But hey, it's all about having fun and learning! Go for it!
For a UAV I would also use dehydral on the wings so it will self correct during flight (rolls) and I would put the control surfaces in the wing, not in the tail. This thing will take a week to turn arround and it will always either dive or pull up when trying to make a turn. It won't work I'm affraid.
I don't really care about dihedral nor about having a high wing :) since the autopilot on board will do all the corrections ;) as for the control surfaces, they have not yet been cut on the wings :) im waiting for the servos and horns to arrive so i can set them up and cut them properly :)
As mentioned by avent you need to rebuild the wings, these will just break when you will pull up/down to fast. Having a completly flat bottom wing is neither recomendable. It will work and produce lot's of lift but it won't make the plane better/easier to fly.
Where you connect the wing you want some plywoood NOT balsa. It's being used because its very light not for structural strenght.
This thing looks good. Cant wait to see more...
Seeing the first picture on the frontpage, I thought you were going to make a flying carpet... Not a bad idead though.
It's a profiled wing, you can't fly that in reverse :)
