1800mm Battlestar Galactica Colonial Viper EDF or Turbine Model
We are very pleased to announce a new model in our large scale radio controlled electric ducted fan and turbine XPS Kits range
The Colonial Viper Mk IV
Is a revolutionary step forward. It was designed from the ground up as a #hybrid space/atmospheric versatility fighter. With nods to the Mk II it had three engines, two #Kinetic Energy Weapons and one pilot. The biggest change is a force induction hood that surrounded the cockpit letting air straight into the engines this #Viper MK 4 is much more efficient in atmosphere burning only a quarter of the Tylium fuel needed to do the same run in a Mk II. Vents were added to the wings that could serve three purposes; more atmosphere pumped into systems, an extra lift duct or a aerospace booster brake. The last major addition was a bomb bay located between and slightly below the lower engines.
2 Versions of the iconic #colonial viper will be available
1800mm Legnth designed for 3 x 90mm fan units with a flying weight of 8 kg
1400mm legnth designed for 3 x 70 mm fan units with a flying weight of 6kg
Although accurate scale model our design team made a few tweaks to ensure the Viper fly’s well as it looks. Dihedral has been reduced and the wing area is 20% larger than scale.
3 edf units should give us a 1:1 power ratio like our page for updates
