Anyone think that building something like this would even fly. I'm new to the hobby, but I always say go big or go home.
I'm sure alignment of the front spars with the little wings would be key. Anyone have other thoughts, suggestions, warnings?
It's basically a pusher. I'd plan to put the electronics mid-body right behind the motor. Maybe move them forward if the front wing spars provide more lift than you'd think. What should the profile of the cylinder be? Should it be consistent all the way around or be more airfoil-like at the top? Landing gear will be an entirely different issue... might I be able to bring it vertical and just let off the throttle and let it rest on the rear structure?
It basically reminds me of the straw plane with a circle of paper - or the massive one that Peter put together a while back.
Then comes the options for hardware. I have 850-900 mAh 3S Lipos or 2200mAh 3S Lipos. 20, 30 or 40A ESC's, Motors: 2200Kv, or 960-1020 or 1380.
I would probably do some testing on a smaller scale with the 2200kv on the 20A or 30A ESCs with a 5x5 or 6x4 or 6x3 prop.
It's mostly going to be DTF (Dollar Tree Foam) because it's cheap. I have all my $$$ locked up in motors and ESCs
I'd love to hear what you all have to say while I begin to ponder the build.
