New EDF Delta Wing Jet

#1
Little new project I’ve been working on in my spare time. It doesn’t have a name yet but I haven’t seen many legit delta wing jets on here. Still needs a nose and canopy however runs off of a 50mm FMS EDF, a 50a Hobbywing Skywalker ESC, a ProTek 1400 4s LiHV LiPo and 2 Emax 12g metal gear analog servos. It’s not really based on anything and doesn’t have any real airfoil shape but rather two sheets of foam beveled and folded onto each other at the LE for hopefully max speed. Span is 24 inches.

That's one good looking bird! It reminds me of a Mirage

Great looking jet - I'm into wings and might try this eventually as my build list is just too long. Just an FYI I put a KF airfoil on my second F22 slot jet and it made a world of difference. Glides and flys great. You might give it a try just by gluing the KF sheet on the top of the wing.

I mean the KF would improve lift but I was going for the sleekest wing profile possible and I achieved it so

Nice to see that delta flying at 24”. I’m planning to use basically the same EDF/radio gear on my 28” F-106 (if I ever get around to finishing it:giggle:). So far all I have done is the wing.

KF4 steps might be worth a try - you could tape them on and if you don’t like the way it flys just peel them off. I used a flat plate wing on my MiG15 (not a delta - I know), but adding top and bottom steps and playing with the step chord at the tips turned it into a completely different jet. It doesn’t bleed energy in turns any more and it went from twitchy in roll to flying like its on rails.........And once it’s painted you really can’t see the steps.

awesome work, Mate!

Pssst.... you should definitely finish that F-106
