NOTE FROM THE DESIGNER

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. 

RECOMMENDED GEAR

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.

SPECIFICATIONS

Wingspan - 76 cm | Length - 81 cm| Two servos, tied and mixed as elevons | Build material - 6mm depron | Weight - up to 800g
