Modified Nobler
 
2 Attachment(s)
This was last winters project and I need a little help on what to call it. Horizon Hobby owns the name "Nobler" so I can't call it that, and that name refers to a control line plane. This is a Nobler enlarged 20% from some 1957 plans, converted to electric and the fuselage was stretched to make it a stable RC plane. I kept the look of the Nobler as much as I could, like the rib spacing and wing tips but most of the construction is that of a pattern ship.
Here are some of the specification:
Wing area: 800 sq inches
Length: 54 inches
Wingspan: 67 inches
Weight: 121 oz. or 7.5 lb. (This is the ready to fly or wet weight) ...It seems odd to use the term "wet weight" on an electric plane.
Motor: e-flite power 60 motor 470Kv
ESC: Castle talon 90
Propeller: 15 x 8
Battery: 6 cell Lipo 22.2 volts

I really like the way this plane flies, so much so that I'm going to build a second one and create a full set of plans as I go. Right now most of the curved parts are in CAD and were machined on my CNC router. But before I can get started I need a name to call it that wont get me in trouble. One suggestion was "Nobler 120" since it's 120% of the original, but some people may think it refers to the engine size.

So please reply with what you would call it.

Knobler as in Kv for electric (still pronounced the same.) Good job. I remember those. OR Knobler V As in v for volts or V for 5

Beautiful job and good luck with the kit.

Nobler 2.0

I doubt you would want to call it; Nobler 2020

I am liking Nobler 2020. Referring to a year separates it from all the version of the Nobler.
For instance, there is a:
Blue box Nobler
Green box Nobler
Top Flite Nobler
Brodak Nobler
RC Nobler by Jerry Bates
Junior Nobler
1/2 Nobler
Giesecke Nobler
and those were found with a simple Google search.

I'm also considering Nobler 800 as that refers to the wing area and it would look cool on a big decal on the side.

I would call it Beautiful!
Great work. I always liked the look of the Nobler - had one when I was a kid flying CL.
