This is my mini Yamamoto Built several years ago as a first small model (30" span)
to put my micro radio gear in, it is all built up structure. It is powered by an
OS Max 10 with a 7*4 propeller and has a 2 oz fuel tank. Originally it used Fleet
micro servos a Fleet micro receiver and a 150 Mah battery pack and weighed 13 oz.
With this configuration 3 flights were possible on 1 charge. It now has micro Protech
servos installed, a small Fubtaba reciever and a 300 Mah battery pack which is phisically
the same sive as the 150 was, with this set up it ways a couple of ounces more. Being
4 channel the plane is highly aerobatic, flies quite quickly due to the thin flat
bottom wing section and is great fun to fly.
A Friends Dehaviland Beaver. A 30" span fun scale type 3 channel model powered by
an OS10FP. the plane is lightly constructed and flies very well. An aileron wing
is planned. watch this space for a further update eventually.
Above is my half size fun fly type plane i have almost finished. It is 30" span,
powered by an OS 10FP has 5 micro servos and weighs 1 1/2 lbs I had to put the elevator,
rudder servo's and the battery pack in the rear of the fuselage to get the correct
c of g. I have now flown it the fuselage was to short making it very twitchy to fly.
I cut the fuz in half and added an extra 6 inches to the tail boom this vastly improved
things, but being a bodge was way out of line. I have now built a new fuslage and
the plane flys well. But it still isn't really the slow flying fun fly i wanted i
think that i shouldn't have scaled down the wing section thickness as much as the
rest of the plane in order to keep a large frontal surface area.
This is a friends mini jazz a similar sized fun fly to above , powered with a OS15la
engine turning an 8*4 prop. and has a semi symmetrical wing section. It flies superbly.
I want one!
