Description of KEIRO-ECLIPSE 400/1.2

The KEIRO-Eclipse 400/1.2 is a semi scale model of the american Very Light Jet Eclipse 400. After maiden in 2007 unfortunately Eclipse aviation suffered bancrupcy in 2009 and the Eclipse-project was stopped.

We have adopted the form and proportions of the original but the fuselage was realized in a box-type form to allow easier build-up in wood.
However the typical shape with the fish-like fuse and the giant V-tail comes into its own.

Flight caracteristics are very dynamic. The electric ducted fan has very good efficiency in its nacelle, and the fuse shape is aerodynamically perfect.

The eclipse is launched by rubber bungee. A 69mm-fan is intended and a drive with 3S-LiPo is fully adequate.

Building the ECLIPSE 400/1.2:
- The fuselage is built in two halfes (upper/lower) directly on the plan.
- Wings and V-tails in fully sheeted rib and stringer design.
- Nacelle has wood frame with vacuum-formed outer surface and a fiberglass nozzle
