Machado's TUG

Postby Renato Machado » 29 Aug 2016, 11:09

Morning all,

This is the horse that we have been using to pull our gliders and RC parachutists for quite some time. It is a lovely model and performs very well.
My dad designed the model and we've got the dxf plans and parts for laser cutting. I thought it would be interesting to share the plans with everyone so I will prepare the drawings, add some notes and share.


Specs:
Wingspan: 2.6m
Lenght: 2.2m
weight: 8 kg
Engine: 50 cc (Its possible to install a bigger engine)
-The fuselage is made in two parts so it is very easy to transport.

PM me if you are interested :)



Cheers
Renato
