Il Twin Beech passa a Fusion 360

Il progetto del Twin Beech era già il primo in molte cose: la prima riproduzione, il primo bimotore, il primo con funzioni avanzate, con carrelli retrattili, con sezioni intercambiabili etc. Ma ora possiamo dire che sarà anche il primo aeromodello progettato da noi usando Fusion 360! Lasciare il vecchio programma e’ stata una scelta sofferta, ma a distanza di qualche mese, possiamo dire che e’ stata la cosa giusta, soprattutto guardando al futuro. Perché Fusion

Abbiamo iniziato a montare il Juliet3!!!

L’anno scorso si era chiuso con i voli di prova del Juliet2, per raccogliere informazioni utili a migliorare il progetto. All’inizio del 2020 ho finalmente deciso (con me stesso) che il progetto era abbastanza maturo da costruire una prima serie di cellule del Juliet3. Questo voleva anche dire poter portare avanti gli altri progetti mentre questo si “trasferiva” in garage!  Un gioco di squadra Una volta “chiusi” i file in Sketchup, ho mandato tutto a

Juliet2 progress update #1

With the good season almost over, things are all but getting quiet. Even though this is usually the moment when the action moves from the field to the garage, we have been busy with the test flights of the Juliet2. The prototype has been logging flight hours until a small incident grounded it for a few weeks. At the same time, we made progress at the drawing board, where the future Juliet3 program is shaping

Goodbye A1-C

It has come the moment to look forward. Unfortunately this also means we need to make space for the next projects, and say goodbye to A1-C. We are not going to ruin the surprise about what will be next here, and besides, this post is just to celebrate the end of the Juliet’s flying days.

A1-D upgrades

After the prototype second flight, we had to stop the plane since the motor had lost 4 magnets (well, they just detached from the bell and moved a bit actually). Although the motor itself was repaired the next afternoon, we decided to try a different engine, and ordered a Turnigy 3548 sk3 motor. Honestly I can’t blame completely the original motor. It was running to the max power rating, and even if the first flights

A1-D: it flies!!! (with video)

The big moment has arrived for the Juliet2. We are finally going to fly it!!! As all the family was there for the event, the first accomplishment of the day has been for sure squeezing two adults, a baby car seat, a golden retriever and two planes plus equipment in a sedan.

A1-D Final steps

With the Tundra and the Juliet in flying order, I enjoyed the first part of the season at the field having fun. Still, I managed to make some progress to the A1-D. We can now say it’s reaching the final steps of the construction. Having the model structurally complete, I made some tests to see where I could expect the CG to fall. While of course not 100% accurate at this stage, the results brought

A1-D Project

While rebuilding the Juliet, I had plenty of ideas on how the structure could have been improved, lightened and made easier to “operate”. Since the ideas kept piling up after the first flights, some of them found a way into the model after our first little crash. Of course they were limited to small design corrections. We just put all the rest in a drawer for later use. In the meantime, we were already looking

C18 Project

One of the reasons why I decided to come back to the hobby, was to try out FPV (First Person View) flying. With the A1-C getting close to its first flight, I started to think of a plane to properly experiment with flying through a camera (or more than one), but not only that. By far the biggest limit I had was space, for storage, for transport to the field in the cabrio, for eventually
