Default Mini Delta 2000 - almost complete

Well , after a lot of searching, and international phone calls i managed to get my hands on this beaut

it set a speed record of 180+ MPH in Great Britian, and was clocked at 234MPH during test runs

i built this kit and its almost ready to go

just got the 2 elevons to cover and 2 fins , and want to add trim to the wing

here is what it looks like so far and the trim i want to add, just cant decide which trim for now

if all goes well, test flight will happen on Saturday

Sure would like to see that plane fly, but without the plastic spinner.

I have to again say that is IMPRESSIVE! I remember seeing the original post/thread and fell in love with that airplane. I have however become the owner of a Angel made Rifle in Blue Angel's colors as well as an Oakdale Phenom, which I will also do up in B/A colors.

More pics
More specs
More info. man!


We want to hear from you IZZY!

I'm curious to know how well it flies without vertical fins? It seems like it would be very nose heavy, I'm also curious about that.

DOWN BOYS DOWN

i am not sure about a video, but i will try and get one for the day of the test flight
regarding engine - it is a tuned engine by Dub for high rev Jett 50 - he sent me the props as well as tuned the engine - rpm close to 22000 from what i remember , but will let you know
i am using a cut down 8.8 x 9.0 apc prop

obviously it has vertical fins - i wrote in the original posts that i have to cover them still

regarding the cg, it looks like it is pretty close on, the battery is right at the back of the wing , and the servos ( hard to see, are set inside the wings )

the feul tank is on the CG , and i was advised i might need a perry pump to get the flow from the wing to the carb

the only thing i am now trying to find a solution for ( without breaking the nice curves ) is a place to fit the remote needle valve - i am open for suggestions

Looks great, but I'll believe that 234 mph claim when I see it myself. Reminds me of Weston's claim that their factory Magnums hit 248 mph. On a good day I can see this thing hitting 180 or so, sure, why not?

Looking forward to the flight report.

Can we get some details about the plane?
What is the wingspan, how much does it weigh?
go for the second trim scheme.

yes - test flight was uneventful, everything went smoothly , and she flys like she is on rails

much better than a DD , and she is sooooooooooo smoooooth

only problem was landing, in a grass filed that has sprinklers all over it

3rd flight I managed to land her safley , bus she kept on sliding on the grass till she hit a pipe

had to repair the bottom of the fuselage , and this time , decided to add carbon to protect the bottom

just have to recover

she is extremely fast, and i have not finished running in the engine, so i imagine once engine is leaned out to full 2 stoke, she will be a monster

will get a video here maybe next week

thanks
izzy
