Anton,

This is the same as the A10 listed on your EDF website.....correct? I just got notification that mine is about to ship. I plan to fly it as an EDF with 2 120mm fans. I believe you test flew earlier as an EDF...correct?

Are the pylons and armament available? I would like to get this as well, and have npt been able to order them yet.

Thanks,

Wes

I saw the white gelcoat prototype at jetpower this year.
Do you have any photos of the interior with any reinforcement applied, as the fuse looked very lightly layed up, and hence very weak.
I'd be keen to see what has been done as I'm very interested in this A-10

Hi Anton,

It looks great but Im wondering from the website why the price of the scale turbofan detail set is $495?
How are these parts made and why are they so expensive?

Dear Sir,

here are some pictures for the inside of A-10 fuse, 4 pcs carbonfiber increased,

i think this A-10 fuse is very strong,

Best Regards

Anton

sorry , mistake, the price for Fan should be $ 395.-USD list price,

when you place the order for A-10 you will receive the Fan set at $ 295.-USD,

Best regards

Thanks Anton
Can you post a close up photo of the parts so we can see the detail?

I dont understand why these parts are so expensive when they can be injection molded in glass filled nylon for pennies. Are these parts 3D printed to order?

Thanks Anton,
Those photos show a lot more wooden formers than I saw before.
The carbon wasn't present either at jetpower.
Thanks

Chris,

Yes, the fans are 3d printed to order. That is why the cost are high. It take 24 hour to make 2 fans. If we sold out 1000's of a10's it would make sense investing in tooling and plastic injection. But not worth the cost...

Regards

Thanks for the reply.
Id like to suggest Skymaster look into a Urethane Casting Resin and silicone molds to make less expensive parts. Basically $200 in supplies which can make many sets of fans from a one gallon resin kit. You can cast a set of fans for a few dollars. A Urethane casting resin system is extremely strong for this application since the rpm is basically low. It can be deyed gray so no paint is needed except to add detail. You can use two printed fans as master models, sanded and finished smooth, make one or two silicone molds, and then hand pour the resin. Cure times are less than 30min but safer at 45-60min for fine detail. You can use paintable mold release and the mold will last many cycles if its designed right. If the mold is ruined you can make a new one easily.

Ive made many parts like this for all kinds of models. If you would like some assistance let me know.

Chris

How do the fins attach to the stabiliser?

Did you have to add noseweight to get the CG correct?
