Here is the next creation from Let's Fly RC. Check out my website, still under construction at LetsFlyRC.com for more great planes and multirotors to come.
The LF - X-41 is an awesome design originally designed by T3chdad on the RC Groups forums. He has a great website at t3chdad.com that has his many versions described in detail. I hope that this conversion to DTFB makes it easier for everyone to build a great looking design. I absolutely love this plane, and it flies great, fast, or slow. I have two setups that I will link in this article, the fast setup that is stable, and flies great, and the crazy, supersonic setup that flies wicked fast.
I am still working on moving canards, and will post updates once I have flight information, and a repeatable design. I have a working prototype, and plan on testing it soon. This plane will be available as a speed build kit, and the kit will include canards that can be made stationary, or moving.
I have both the T-28 Trojan and the X-41 available to purchase on ebay for now:
Trojan - Ebay:
X-41 - Ebay:
During the maiden flight, I learned that is is extremely important to have straight wings on this model.
Fast Performance Flight:
This flight showed me the true capability of this plane, and made me truly love it.
The Plans will be available for free at the bottom of this article.
The LF-X-41 is made to be compatible with the simple series firewall and follow the build techniques from FliteTest. The canards add to the stability of the plane, and can give a unique flying style if you decide to make them movable canards.
I hope you enjoyed this article, and I really hope you build one of these planes. It will be an experience you will not forget.
As promised - Free Plans.
