28" Foam Board EDF F86 (Plans Attached)

Here's my take on a ~28" wingspan Foam Board EDF F86:

I'm personally extremely proud of this design, especially the Mk2. To be honest, it's the fastest aircraft I've ever flown and it's probably beyond my skill level to fly. So I decided to share it with you guys, hopefully, some of you will have the skill that I don't.

Here's a video of me flying it:
I've attached plans below if you're interested.


The wing is removable/held on with rubber bands. The aircraft is 3 channel, but I use 1 servo for each control surface.
So I CAD'd it up in Fusion 360, then laser cut everything on my school's laser cutter. As of now, it uses just over 2 sheets of foam board.
It weighs around 670g with the battery.

2200 mah 4s 40C Lipo
70A Brushless ESC
12 Blade 64mm EDF 3500KV

I also tried using a 3S EDF system, but I don't think it was powerful enough.

I haven't had the time to write up a super detailed build guide, but please let me know if you have any questions about the build process. I'll attach a bunch of pictures of the build process, as well as the plans below.



Thrust tube with a slot cut for wires.


ESC glued down with servos.

Use the EDF bulkheads as formers for the octagonal fuse.

Side notes: I had already finished my design before I saw Zephyr's smaller design, and I envy his maneuverability. The paint job on my F86 is modeled after the F86-F40 in War Thunder/Japan's Blue Impulse Demo Team. I have been a Flite Test enthusiast for a while, but this is my first post.

I have some more pictures and information on my website: https://shihaocao.com/f86.html

I attached plans in DXF and PDF. Once again, let me know if you have any questions at all! I'd be happy to answer anything.

Hope you guys enjoy,
