This was an exercise in using depron foam, I already had built 'profile' models using depron, but to me they do look rather ugly. I have a calandar showing variours aircraft , and the Dauntles was starring at me for a whole month just willing me to make it.
So a lot of head scratching, cutting, gluing, and painting later, (plus quite a few words that cannot be repeated here), a reasonable facsimerly of a Dauntless emmerged. (Let me add here that I don't do 'scale models', I do models I think look intersting and to my requirements).She has flown, quite successfully, and on surprising ly little power.
The motor - I have put in it is a BL4020/08, well it
was cheap, looked 'big', and has a low Kv, (I like
big props). So far I have had a 15x8 on it and it looks
promising on just 3s.
Span is 67", the wing is in three sections, and includes
Model weight - exactly 4lb
