Some of you may remember me wanting to build a smaller version of this plane years ago.



Well COVID finally gave me some time to learn CAD (Onshape is fantastic and free for hobby users). It looks like one of my dream planes will finally come together nicely. I have the exterior of the fuselage done and will work on the internal supports and tabs next. Going slowly but rewarding.

Lots of small details coming together ... still more work left on the fuselage because I want it to assemble easily ... then canards.
Lots of room for 2 batteries and equipment
Supports for the main removable hatch will be 3D printed (4 orange ribs) but the rest is foamCapture.png Capture.png  Capture.png

Are you planning on doing an EDF, or are you going with the twin-props like the one in the vid?
BRB - Building another nosecone.

Twin props 9 inch folding. However you can't get counter rotating folding props. The one in the video rotate the same way.

I'm surprised you can't get counter props that fold. I get 9" is big, but folding ones often used on multi-rotors. Unless you mean they fold back over the 'nose' of the engine. Which if so, would explain the reason for choosing them. 

I guess you can off-angle them to counter the torque, right?

Yes they are the ones that fold backwards.
I plan on using the 9x4 inch.

I think the original I am modelling after used 15 inch and here is a pic from the build log that AJ woods put together.
I am not at this stage yet ... still learning Onshape as I go.
