The EDF unit is for a scale, micro radio controlled, Hawker Hunter Jet. It’s a project I’ve been working on for just over a year now.
The idea is to build a flying scale version of the 1:32 Revell plastic model kit. I was hoping to use 3D printed parts for the flying model but soon realized that it wouldn’t be possible due to weight constraints at this size.
As it stands only the rotor and EDF housing will be printed. I have however developed a way of 3D printing the molds and then casting parts in lightweight urethane expanding ridge foam. I can also use the same process to mix in other composites such as carbon fiber.
It been a really fun project and I’ve learnt so much.
