Hello guys! Firstly thank you for sharing all of your knowledge over the topic and congrats to everyone who’s managed to fly
We are a group of three: Aurélien (sailing since he’s born), Mateo (an computer science and electronis nerd) and me, Axel. We are living in south of France, in Saint-Raphaël and we’re on high school’s last year in engineering sciences series so we have to make a build and present it as a project.
We have ideas, we’ve designed some, and we’ll be building soon. I’m showing you what we’ve done at the moment
My design: using the SSS 56104 motor my father bought for me (thanks dad), the same propeller as @Silvio (Amazing build, check it out if you haven’t already) and the reisenauer super chief I’m planning to use
Aurélien’s been thinking about a turbine propelling system since he saw @virus’s work, efficiency should be better, as would safety and maybe there woudn’t be any need for a speed reducer
Fitting everything into the fuselage would be a great thing to do as it will lower drag
He’s had some fun drawing those wings, we’ve 3D printed @Mab -if my memory’s right- foil model and a friend recovered it with carbon fiber (shoutout to him) we’ll see how it does.
We welcome every advice as we are three kids exited about this big thing
