Beaver DHC2

Quelques feuilles de dépron et un peu de balsa suffisent pour construire cette reproduction du légendaire De Havilland Beaver DHC2. Une motorisation simple et économique, un Speed 400 réducté ou un petit brushless, suffit pour le faire voler.
C'est un modèle facile à construire qui vole très bien. Idéal pour débuter ou se détendre le week-end

Le Beaver de Pat Lynch (Australia)


Les commentaires de Pat:

Le Beaver de Pat Lynch Beaver Take off CG was exactly right. For the second flight, I gave a bit of right thrust (no down was needed) and take off required no right rudder. The 400 motor took it to a good altitude in seconds.

For your information - I changed the ailerons back to semiscale length - but 35mm wide. I intend trying flaps at some stage.
The windows are all transparent (against your advice :-) with "bubble" style door windows made.
I left the wheel strut fairings off for the maiden.
All up weight is now closer to 650gm with a larger 3s lipo.
Gliding performance is good - stall recovery is good - but stalls are very gentle and landing is fine.
I am very pleased!
Just a final picture of the Beaver - now with very effective flaps. It seems to perform in a very scale like manner and I am very pleased with it. Here is a photo of it ready for about its 10th flight with full flaps just for the photo (about 1/4 for real take off). All up weight is now 700grams. Note the non scale wheels for our very rough flying field (and no wheel fairings).
