Request RF6 Aircraft Here

Please put all requests for RF6 aircraft in this thread. Modelers like me prefer to look in one thread for request ideas. When people make their own standalone request threads, they get lost over time when the request isn't immediately picked up. Considering how long it takes to make a model for RF, most requests don't get picked up immediately.

Please provide 3-views, specs, and other reference pictures with your request. This will greatly improve your chances of getting a modeler's attention.

31 feet? 3 1/4 tons? Too big for my taste.

I figured it would be easier to make a 1/10 scale model if you have the full scale dimensions.

I don't think the weight would be 1/10th, if it was an RC model.

You are aware you didn't originally provide the name, right?

Question Ornithopter/ornicopter

I'm not sure if it is physically possible, but I believe an ornithopter (basically a plane that flaps its wings and flies like a bird) could be good for something totally different and definitely a challenge for someone who is willing!
Apparently they are very efficient.

(An ornicopter is basically a helicopter with no tail that "flaps" its rotors as they rotate.)

I have been scouring the net for 3-view plans but couldn't find anything useful.

Attached are some pics from www.flappingflight.com

I'm looking forward to those models when KE gets RF 6 finished. The Carbon-Z Scimitar is a little different than those models though. The motor pivots with the rudders to vector the thrust and comes with landing gears, retracts as an option. Should be an interesting project for someone. No one could accuse those boys over at Horizon of sitting on their hands. I haven't seen a clear shot of the inner workings of that motor pivot yet but one of the guys at the field just got one so I'll be seeing one in person soon. He's a pretty good pilot so it will be interesting to see what new tricks he invents with this plane. I'd be willing to wager a little chicken with Jeff on this being the next release for Phoenix.

Carbon-Z Scimitar

I am really watching the swap pages for someone to release a Carbon-Z Scimitar. I'd be happy if the first try didn't have the thrust vectoring as I hear it is complicated. I was there the day that our local hobby shop owner flew his. Pretty impressive and fast.

Wonder if Phoenix will release a version? We do know they are working on a major release - no idea yet when they will publish it.

Anybody working on the Carbon-Z Scimitar?
