Never say it can't be done!!! That's my motto. This is a world's first with a 64 mmEDF with TV so the end result is a plane that is so simple, anyone can build it. You will notice that the maiden flight includes left and right turns where I only used 1/2 throttle and it moved out fairly fast for a $10 fan. The second attempt showed how not to launch(have to launch horizontal) and the 2nd flight showed again a quick test of turns and landings.
Will have to play around with servo arms lengths to see if Thrust Vectoring improves or not. Happy with landings.

Now I will have to work on the X-36 (crashed over and over, no major damage) and I am going to add the 2 other changes that makes the X-47 flyable.
I will go back to the other thread and explain in detail of the 3 things that make this plane flyable. If you think a rudderless plane is easy , try it. If anyone wants to duplicate this, I will produce a PDF template of my design.



I am elated at doing this, the only other thing that has kicked my butt is VTOL.
I like to design and fly unique planes.

OUTSTANDING!!!
Rudderless is a tough nut to crack.
Dave got his X36 to fly rudderless,,,,,,,,,,,,, I think he had more than 2 servos though.
Just another day in paradise!
Any day above ground is a GOOD day.

Very nice but flying without a rudder and two servos is not so difficult but I would agree flying without a fixed fin is, however your X47 fuselage does have quite a bit of side area.

Nice plane, I want to try a EDF fan one day looks like your plane flew pretty good.

The fuse is only 2 1/2 high and taper width is 4-5" wide. In fact, if you think it is not difficult, why don't you try your hand at it. The only other that I have done is a flying wing without rudder or endplates.

This is my take on a flying wing without vertical stabilizer`s or gyros.
Wot, no Depron?

What do you think the end plates are if it isn't part of a vertical stabilizer? It has a horizontal and vertical component. Cut them off and it doesn't fly. As you say, video or it ain't happening.

Yeh, still designing (using kk2 board) with some of the new technology to show what is possible.

Well done, Ian! You know me......I love a good wing. Love the anhedral wingtip droops or whateverthehell you call them.
Very cool.

They are NOT vertical they are anhedral wing tips which reduce the need of the extra drag of verticals they are also providing lift which verticals don`t.

I'd like to give it a try, so I'm interested in the plans.

Do a search of X-47 B here and you will see the thread(s) dealing with the general plans. Design started with only a top view of Navy X-47 B and cut all parts from paper. Dimensions were 38 x 22 inches. Used a 64 mm to keep a 1300mah battery inside. If you want to try, I will try to remember what to do.

Here is my sled that I still didn't get to make turns. Destroyed 2 70'smm and gave up. Expensive.
