This is a fun challenge is to design any Heinkel plane,

The goal is to design a Heinkel Plane, that flies great and looks great.;)

here are some pics of some of the Heinkel planes
Starts 18th August
End 18th October

there is no prizes just a fun challenge, except for bragging rights (or if someone wants to donate a prize)

There are basically no rule except for designing a Heinkel plane, submitting plans, and creating a build thread.



Go as scale or as crazy as you want, but most importantly have fun.;)

here is a link that will help you pick a plane
My favorite is the heinkel he 112




Updated rules:

-Build must be reasonably repeatable (complete balsa, fiber glass, or carbon fiber builds are not allowed, but these items may be used in the construction of the planes) Hotwire, 3d printed, foam board builds are all allowed. P.S. please suggest any i've missed

- Plans/videos/instructional guides should theoretically be provided. (the more actual plans the better)

- No limit on size. (wingspan, etc)

- No limit on power system.

- No limit on amount of motors, except the plane must have 1 or more (no gliders).

- no limit to features

- If possible maiden footage should be included

- Build thread must be made

- participants are allowed to work together (ie: one designs and one builds)

- NO FLIGHT CONTROLLERS ALLOWED TO BE "HELPING" PILOT

- Please suggest additional rules.........






Determining the winner:

determined based off of stats by builder/pilot and community decisions.

#1: does it fly? 5 points. if not 0 points.

#2: Ease of build? 1-10 points.

#3: In air handling? 1-10 points.

#4: Scaleness? (compared to actual aircraft) 1-10 points.

#5: Stall speed? 1-10 points. lower stall the better

#6: Flight Envelope? 1-5 points. 5 for slowing down to a crawl, and also being able to travel fairly fast.

MAXIMUM POINTS 50.

PLEASE SUGGEST SOME MORE CRITERIA FOR JUDGING

Hi everyone, This is a fun challenge is to design any Heinkel plane,

The plans must be free for others to use
You can design the plane to work with your electronics

My favorite is the heinkel he 112
Is there any time frame we have to do this in?

A maiden is not required but will help towards your points in the end (pointing system TBD)

The He 60 was a reconnaissance seaplane developed for the Kriegsmarine. First flying in early 1933, the He 60 was a conventional two-seat seaplane with heavily staggered wings. Somewhat underpowered, it was entered into service regardless, as it was more than adequate for its intended role. Deliveries began in 1934, becoming the standard shipboard aircraft for the Kriegsmarine. When the Spanish Civil War flared up, examples were delivered to Nationalist forces. In 1939, it began to leave service, replaced by the He 114 and Ar 196, but was still in service with several coastal units by the start of the war. By 1940, all examples had been withdrawn from frontline service, only to be brought back in for patrolling the Baltic and Mediterranean following the invasion of the Soviet Union. They were finally retired completely in 1943.
