Northern Flicker - a 2 chan low wing for Baby Bee

Post  JasonB on Thu Mar 12, 2015 9:44 am

Hey folks!  I drew up the plans for the Northern Flicker last night.  I think they turned out OK.  I've attached a .jpg version of it here, but if anyone wants, I have a .pdf available - just PM me.

The plan is intended to be printed on 36"X24" (Arch D) size sheet.  It's full scale.



I'll try 2 versions.  This is the full rez version:



This one's more modest, but still easily readable, I think...



Direct link to my photobucket so you can download the full rez:

Good luck, Folks!

Thanks Jason. I really like the model. It's a good candidate for RCM fuse-jigs that I built in two sizes. The small one at 24" x 6" probably isn't big enough.. but the 48" x 12" would be. I actually haven't used either one yet.



You commented on my snow-ski gear. You're right.. I need to make some sort of spring-leveler that only permits a few degrees of toe-down. My region got a lot of snow from the end of Jan. thru most of Feb.. with consistently below-freezing temps throughout.. which accounted for total accumulations in the "footage" range. I usually do some "sledding".. but haven't been once this season.

Yeah, we got buried too...  Somewhere near 12', with another foot coming this weekend, they say!

To be honest, when I built the Flicker, I just glued the fuse sides to the firewall, then glued the aft ends together.  Then I inserted the 1/4" struts starting near the middle and working towards the ends.  Straight build is guaranteed if you cut and glue those pieces accurately.  Then again, I've never used a jig for any building!

It seems so clear now why all my builds have had near flat-bottomed wings LOL.

I'd love to see some folk try this build and see their results!

I think I'm gonna have to build this Very Happy maybe machine a crank and crankcase to make a flat twin engine utilizing two .049 engines Airplane

Oh, WOW! That'd cook right along... Might wanna shorten the nose a touch for balance if you do, as it does balance quite well with a single cyl. on there....

It'd look the part, though, with a cylinder on each side like so many early home-builts.

Thanks!

I powered mine with HS55's (had'em on the shelf, something more durable in a similar size would be better).

The battery I used was a 1/3AAA NiMH pack from a Losi Micro-T. An AAA pack or small Lipo would do as well. For balance, my pack is velcro'd to the back of the firewall. A larger pack would end up a touch further back, all else being equal.

The wing is also easily converted to ailerons with a little imagination, I did that for the wing in my Aquastar, which is basically the same structurally.

There's a half-arsed build thread here that details some equip choices:

I'm considering the .049 cylinders because parts are way more readily available and cheaper than the .020 option, if I were to design and build this engine I would, opt for rotary induction through the crankshaft and have a throttle on the carb so I would be able to control the speed a lot better

Such a great looking design, one for a future build for me. We haven't had enough snow here in NY State this year to oblige flying one of these on skis. Skis are a great way (normally) to extend the season. We have had only a couple frigid 0 degree F days here, was 62F here yesterday.

I like this plane too.  I'm thinking it needs a tee dee to give more power and then I can put a set of floats on it.  I have plans for a ROW free flight model with a really light set of floats, should work well.  I don't get a lot of snow here.

Whats the wing span?
