I am big fan of the A10 look and plane. One of these days I will build one as well in a smaller scale.

So far your progress looks amaizing. How many hours have you already put into it? Also this model is huge.

Re: My A10 Scratch Build 1/7 EDF

Hello,

I started this plane a year ago from some plans and a pile of wood. I have only been working on it here and there over the year so far maybe a couple hundred hours. Its a scratch build so I have made some mistakes not to big and sometimes have to redo some parts then continue on. I will probably pick up my pace somewhat more as it is now winter.

The plans are 1/7 scale George Miller A10 plans except I chose to make my wing in two pieces along with a wing tube that will go thru the fuse. Looking for a proper wing tube to use that is about 1.5 inches or 38-40mm OD, about 600mm long. I am in Canada and dont know where I can go to check out some carbon fiber tubes. I may yet go with a aircraft grade aluminim tube.

Where's all the gaps where you miscut the slots? Comes natural to some of us.

Re: My A10 Scratch Build 1/7 EDF

Great pictorial of your build. A few things were of particular interest to me.

The fat airfoil with a undercamber on rear portion..... is this scale and what does flight performance does it optimize?

Great use of traditional balsa and ply and relative lack of composites, especially carbon...... I see some pics of can of polyester resin; do you intend to use polyester and not epoxy resin when you get to fiberglass cloth covering, assuming you will be going with fiberglass cloth ( I like polyester for the cost and harder surface it leaves but find it sets up so fast when laying up the cloth)

Talk a bit about dust collection/air cleaning; I see a couple of off the shelf bathroom size air cleaning inlets; what are they connected to? Is there another set up taped to end of a table? Do you use a dust collector (as opposed to air cleaners) when doing heavy duty machine sanding? Had you thought about ripping up the carpet in favour of smooth flooring?

You are still some time away from having to commit yourself to a 120mm electric fan setup, but what are the best prospects at this point? (I have an old F-86 kit set up for 120mm fan (originally with a glo engine in a Turbax) so I'm curious.

I suspect an aluminum tube wing joiner will be much cheaper with little or no center of gravity cost penalty.

It will be interesting to see how Dave's slightly smaller and your Warthog turn out in terms of weight and flight performance.

good luck
