VENTI model airplane plan



They say you can a simple mind with little things give great pleasure. I can not deny that this describes me well. Therefore, I go every now and then to the drawing board and enjoy myself with the design simple Wurfgleiter from Depron, which are then assembled in a very short time and with little effort. The current instance has 6-millimeter Depron and has handy 650 mm wingspan.

Based on the model size, it is nice if the hull has a certain three-dimensionality. To one hand to be stable and the other part to the opposite wing to accommodate visually appropriate proportions. The first thought this was a classic case hull with two side panels and a top and Unterbeplankung. Experience shows, however, that they love to creep delays during construction, and that the robustness to be desired leaves for object collisions (wall, tree, soil). Because of Venti should also allow for children and youth groups a guaranteed build success with minimum effort, I opted for a different solution: a layered construction segment.

Shift work
The trick here is that you can build the same the whole model simply by cutting out the parts and sticking together. The fit is thus always given, because everything is very simple set flat against each other. If you also use Express glue now, there is not even solvent vapors. Alternatively, I recommend at Depron always using UHU Por contact glue, which one passes with a finger or a Depron Remnant both sides thin, can evaporate and then assembles the parts exactly. The bonding can now be not more correct, but probably dissolve a few drops of mineral spirits again, to then start all over again can.

Really good glide angle of the grip handle is only when one of the wings missed a profile. For this purpose, you should make a simple sanding block. I like to use 50 millimeters (mm) wide MDF moldings, is mounted on the high-quality means of carpet tape wet sandpaper. 60s or 80s are super grain suited to rapid at Depron and to reach targeted Abtragsergebnissen. The approach profile sanding is on the plan based on 1: 1 delineated drawings and control lines and described. Here nothing can go wrong really. Is ground only the top, so the profile remains straight down.

Not just for the pleasing appearance, but also for an inherently stable flight behavior has the wings of Venti deflection, which is tantamount to a V-shape. The advantage is that the wing does not require debilitating kink gluing. In addition, bending and slumping in Depron - by hand - really quite simple if you have done it a few times. Also, refer to the blueprint elementary tips on how to proceed as well as a template to control the bending result.

If you have at hand all the materials, you can easily do the construction in three quarters of an hour or less. Print to the plan with the computer printer on heavy paper - about 120 grams per square meter - you can cut out the items with scissors or craft knife and as often as you want to use as a template. The Depron, however you cut with a fresh, super sharp Abbrechklingenmesser using as cutting support 6 mm Depron's good advice. Thus, the blade stays sharp longer and the components are severed optimally and without ugly tearing.

Color Games
For the icing on the cake a little color makes, where you can be based on the pattern in the master plan. I particularly like to use water-dilutable acrylic canvas color that I apply with a soft brush. The covers are great and a satin, beautiful uniform surface.

For trimming the Venti has a classic ballast chamber in the fuselage nose, in which can be fill with lead bullets. Such get either in model Traders, or refer consisting of a curtain cord. The size of the ballast chamber is selected so that it can take a little more than 12 grams, just to match the correct achievement of the center of gravity. Complete weighs the Wurfgleiter then 37 grams.

In the first trimming flights cover the opening with adhesive tape first, and when the Venti lying by gentle nudge straight flawless, stretched gliding without diving or pumps, you can bring a plug of Depron there.

With the Venti can come in a number of exciting ideas and experiments. Throw him once of a hill and make a distance flight competition. Or insert a rounded toothpick into it as towhook, then the Venti can bring with sewing thread in the run-off on the amount. Therefore, the model is ideal as a community project, for example, for school classes and youth activities.

Also the model some nice variations are possible. Build some games a removable with rubber rings wing. Similarly, the horizontal stabilizer could decrease. Then is a backpack transport to the nearby playground nothing in the way, as a climbing frame gives off a great starting place.

High-end version
The area of ​​the grip handle is the way deliberately kept large to allow an upgrade with a slight RC system is possible. A receiver servo-block from a cannibalized Kyosho Minium model or the AR6400 of spectrum would be two ideal solutions. Otherwise one can easily servos side stuck (2.5- to 3.7-gram copies) into the fuselage and thus articulating the oars.

For the rudder connection I would suggest an external cable solution for weight reasons, only to train constantly. The restoring force of a torsion spring could be effected with from 0.5 mm steel wire. Weight-saving potential is the way even at the rear: here you can build fin and tailplane as good from 3 mm Depron. Also could be in Hull material leave at the overlaps. And what not would ... so get ran itself.
