Bristol Fuselage

November 20, 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments

Started building the fuselage for the RC bomber.

– The redesigned single row bomb pod. AKA the egg hopper.

– Did not save much weight compared to the old 2×2 model.

IMG_7697

– This surprises me as I used short side walls.

IMG_7698

– And one less servo to open the doors.

IMG_7700

– Testing the open function.

IMG_7701

– Onto the fuselage.

IMG_7702

– The bomb pod squeezes into place.

IMG_7703

– Doors open and close nicely.

IMG_7704

– I will make a skewer securing system later.

IMG_7706

– These pieces are used to ensure the pod is level and in place.

IMG_7708

– Might have to make another pod designed to release gliders.

IMG_7709

– Bomb pod works.

IMG_7710

– Next issue was to profile the shape and locate the GoPro.

IMG_7712

– Body is just wide enough for the camera but decided it would be located in the cockpit this time.

IMG_7713

– I can build the cap making it easier to turn the camera on.

IMG_7714

– Nose section will house the batteries.

IMG_7717

– Actually the nose will not be very long which is nice. 2-3″ max.

IMG_7718

– Good progress but I don’t think it will fly this weekend. Weather looks bad anyhow.
