stylized sled

Mr Ed

That tail moment looks a bit long, maybe it's the skinny wing? Wing looks a bit small for the fus but that will give a decent loading without too much weight, so it should have a better chance in high wind arrivals.

Maybe instead of moulded in blisters you could add done feature like moulded in gun depressions and a hump like on the FW190.

The profile is certainly stunning and offers a lot of paint options from Reno to warbird.

Thats a nice looking fuz you have there.

 

Have reduced the fuselage depth th 140mm and increased root chord to 220mm, also altered the stab shape a bit.

Yes thats about it, quick work. Like the canopy area and the wing fillets where exactly what I was going to do with the wing slightly up from the bottom of the fuz as my pics show. Should not of thought about it so long and try to please everyone I guess.

 

Ah well!  Will leave you to it.

This ones not one of mine guys, its Ian H's original plug from a couple of years ago.

 

He has now redone the plug following a bit of a sticky incident and flown the resulting plane a good few times, Abbo has one as well but I'm not sure if his has flown yet - he's on his 20th or so paint scheme (I just think he's using paint instead of lead for ballast...)

 

I saw Ian's fly last time I was at the Orme and it was very fast with a very slippery 5% wing section or thereabouts!  I think its about the same size as a Rodent.

 

Its in Andy Es slope column in the current RCM&E (March).

 

cheers

Rob

The designs are looking good guys.

This is great - someone else is building sleds. We need more sleds at the Orme.

Forget foamies, get youself a "sled".

Any pictures of the Slither so far Rob?

Here`s some more pics of the Valhalla for inspiration.
