P.1079 Mighty mini master series style jet.

#1
here is how my p.1079 chuck glider looked:

And from that, I want to make a scaled up puller mighty mini style jet, except there is a twist. with @foamboardflyer 's help, it will become master series. @foamboardflyer is currently starting off the build with scaling up my chuck glider plans, and we will start our collaboration from there. The plans for the chuck glider are in the resource section.

I didn’t make more doublers (out of laziness) I will make them later. it glides very well, it’ll glide about as far as a Walmart glider.

I got this 28mm edf I’m thinking about getting a second and trying to use those, but for now I’m going to start with power pack A.

WOW!. what wingspan? put in some bamboo skewers in the tail and you wont need the extra reinforcement. The 28mm edfs are a good idea, but would they fit?

I originally wanted to make the fuselage thicker than the power pod so I could fit it inside the plane. but I realize that the inside of the mighty mini power pod is 21mm witch is about the thickness of 4 pieces of foam board, and the fuselage is 4 pieces of foam board so I mounted the pp is on the outside of the plane Mounting the pp like this keeps the weight down and the original plan was to make it sub 250g and this one is about 170g right now all I have to do is add ailerons so I’m thinking maybe 190g maybe?

I was about to recommend that mounting way. I would try it without ailerons to be safe for starters of you want. but just add those skewers. it might snap otherwise. looks amazing though. may build mine soon

I would like to keep it 3 channel but I’m afraid it would be a little too fast with the swept wings and I don’t have a big place to fly so I kind of have to make it 4 channel

Weather cleared up and I maddened it. I had some torque roll problems and pitch up problems I “fixed” them by angling the motor down and shifting the wing to the left about a centimeter.

The reason I said “fixed” is that after the “fixes” it still wouldn’t fly so I had to add a extra rudder

this design is not meant for a motor setup like this so I still had very bad torque roll problems. I had it setup at half throttle flying level it would fly straight as a arrow but as soon as I went above or below half throttle or tried to turn I would lose control of it. got it stuck in a tree, my sister shot it with a arrow with a string tied to it and pulled it out of the tree (that’s why it’s so damaged)

Please tell me what to improve in the plans and what to change.cI should start off with a box fuselage I think 🤔 torque rolling was expected to be honest and yaw issues too as this us currently completely scale.

here are some better plans

The three things I would change is 1) shift the wing to the left (similar to the ft speedster)
2) bigger v-tale and 3) a little down thrust on the motor.

If you want I can CAD those changes up tonight in fusion.
