KEIRO: Projects for future new kits:
Maiden flight: 2019.09.30
Technical data of prototype:
autumn 2015: I finally find time to start designing the PC24 iwith 3D-CAD Inventor.
April 2016: Design is ready to manufacture all CNC-cut parts for my first prototype.
build-up of fuselage:
|SONEX / WAIEX:
After several EDF's back to a propeller-driven plane. Of course electrically driven and in wood.
My pattern is the Sonex- / Wayex-family an Experimental aircraft from USA. More information about original at Sonexaircraft
My goal is to build the hole family as modular as possible. Tail shall be exchangeable. Undercarriage in 2 or 3-point version.
I got 2D-CAD-drawings from Sonexaircraft which I could use to design my SONEX and WAIEX in 3D
CAD design is finished. First kit for a test builder can be delivered november 2012
Technical data of SONEX and WAIEX:
Fuselage mostly of poplarply. Wings and tail fully sheeted balsaribs
First time I tried 3D-printing for master pattern of canopx and mmotorhood, directly from my CAD-data with a Ultimaker-3D-printer
Pictures before maiden, together with my almost finished SONEX:
3rd prototype WAIEX taildragger also finished
Waiex, Sonex and my old EIT2 ready for next flight
|Eclipse 400, semiscale, 1.6m Span for 90mm-EDF, retracts and flaps
Finally finished the CAD-design and decided to realize it
prototype is built in wood. All parts are CNC-milled
I will weekly update this page so come back to see more progress
Definitely decided to use a Jetfan 90 with motor Leopard LBP 3674-B-1650KV for 6S LiPo. Retracts will be elctric I think E-flite, 15-25-size will do it. Just finished CAD design of nacelle
What a beautifully shaped Very Light Jet (VLJ) from USA !
I would like to design an EDF-version. Unfortunately, i could not yet get drawings from the manufacturer. Secrecy !!
Nevertheless I designed a CAD-model of the fuse, based on pictures and my imagination.
Anyone interested? please contact me
Further development of our proven Electric Jet Trainer EIT
Enhanced performance, more space for LiPo, easier build-up, better Aerodynamic ...
All test have been finished successfully. The prototype is fired by 4S Lipo, WeMoTec MiniFan and a HET 2W20. Very powerfull! No problems with take off from grass on the optional undercarriage.
|KEIRO-ORPHEUS, slope glider:
Fuselage similar in design as the tow plane. Wood and carbontubes.
Maiden flight of prototype 2005.08.10.
technical data of prototype:
Span: 1.55 m
Weight: 1.45 kg
Sorry: Development momentarily stopped
