Just want to share my newest RC model with you!
An interesting thing in its design is that I wanted to build a s large as possible model with powerplant I have in stock. To achieve that, I need to build extremly lightweight structure. I manage to achieve 50% of normal flying weight for models of that size.
My model is 260 cm wingspan, 182 cm in length and weight ready to fly 3 kg. "Normal models" of that size weights somwhere between 5 and 7 kg.
I even made some aerodynamic calculations to check if my model will fly slow as I expected due its low wing loading.
And amazing results from on board GPS logger, processed with seeyou software revield that expectations, calculations and ral flight data was done pretty acurate.
I am more than happy with that!
This could be a confirmation that there is a real chance to calculate even real homebuild aeroplane.
I purchased so called "FPV, First person Viev" system so I will be able to piloting this plane virtually from its cockpit.
Equippment is on the way from Hong Kong, and I am looking forward to install it and test.
Okey, let see that model:
and some movies:

Model allow to take very nice aerial video shots:
