A few weeks ago i got bored in flying RTF-models, so I decided to design and build my own aircraft. Parkjets.com helped me a lot in that process so thanks for that.
I based my design on the EADS-Barracuda, a prototype drone aircraft. It ended up working better than I thought it would, and the final model is an easy to build, unique looking EDF-foamie with very stable flight characteristics. Also I'm currently working on a small version. Since it is my first design i can't guarantee it is error-free. A unique look and when built out of EPP, very durable. I've crashed it multiple times with little to no damage.
The EADS Barracuda I built is out of 8mm EPP foam, which gives it a lot of durability. However, Depron foam or any other foam like foam board should work as well too. The electronics can be purchased for around $50 with the ducted fan.
64mm EDF powered by a 4000Kv heli-outrunner | 45Amp ESC | 3s 2100mah Lipo
Can use a larger EDF fan as there is plenty of room in the fuselage for a 70mm or 90mm EDF fan. With the setup above, it provides about 7 minutes of flight.
Wingspan - 76 cm | Length - 81 cm| Two servos, tied and mixed as elevons | Build material - 6mm depron | Weight - up to 800g
Zip file contains tiled (A4) and untiled plans and construction guide. Also contains plans for Mini (50mm) Barracuda.
