StealthJet Collaboration

Hi everyone!


Since life has been back to normal post covid my real job as an airline pilot has been keeping me pretty busy, that coupled with a family to run and my other interest running ultra marathons means that product designing is taking more time than it did when we were all stuck in our homes.


Just before Christmas I started a collaboration with instagrammer @marc_mpv. Marc is an aviation illustrator and I thought it would be fun to take a design he posted on Instagram and make it fly.





Well, after a decent amount of work I'm happy to say the design is there. I have two concerns currently that are holding the project up. First is the fact that my Dr Mad Thrust 50mm EDF is absolutely rubbish, and second it will need to be bungee launched.



For the first problem I will invest in a new FMS EDF and I am currently building a rig for the bungee launch. I hope to have this together before spring so we can get out and do a maiden.


Let me know if you have any top tips for 50mm EDF's or bungee launches!

Oh, I have a few of your designs but haven’t had a chance to get into my printer yet. Thank you for taking the time to creating cool aircraft. Oh, people like me make you look good…I’m a 28-year Air Force aircraft mechanic. 😎

Hello…nice design. I’m an Embry Riddle AU grad in Pro Aero. I believe if you increase the size to accommodate a 70mm motor, you should be able to hand launch or strap on a non-retractable short gear. You may have to create a small hand grip at the CG, but I believe it will work.

That's a nice looking bird! Hope you find a workable fan system for it!
