Product Description


Islander 5 meter span

Customer requested a new design for a large Islander - detail sourced from plans, drawings and many photographs of the full size aircraft.
  • 5meter wingspan
  • 2 piece Fuselage
  • 3 Piece wing
  • detachable tailplane
  • proposed engines 2x Zenoah 62cc
  • wing to use phenolic tubes as the main spar structure
  • true to scale operation for surfaces such as flaps and ailerons and working trim tabs etc
  • everything to notch together with tabs and slots to make the build easier and self jigging features built in
  • time taken to design = about 60 hours over 4 weeks
  • time to cut out all the parts =21 hours (3 days continuous operation of the laser!)
  • used 15 sheets of laser ply and 2 of birch ply
  • over 17 meters of tubes

the scale of this plane becomes apparent as the fuselage sides are cut

this is just the front of the fuselage sides

everything fits together like a big 3D jigsaw

here you can see the zig-zag join that was very complex to design but which will

make a strong & easy to connect fuselage joint.  The fuz will be built in one piece

and then split later on in the build

the fuselage starting to take shape
