Default Vulcan Duo ... High alt and Low versions ...

Here are the two Avro Vulcans 3D printed from files downloaded from CULTS.

Approx 1m span .... designed as just under 1kg AUW .... 50mm FMS 3S EDF feeding the 4 exhausts.

Design calls for PLA print with no internal infill ........ so I modified to LW-PLA and added infill. The Camo version (Low Altitude later Vulcan) came out heavier than planned - but should fly OK The all White versions is as per the Anti-Flash Nuclear High Altitude Strike version and has come out a lot lighter using lessons learnt from the 'camo first print'.

The White v2 will have a Haoye 6 blade with 4500kv and 4S ..... instead of the FMS 11 blade 5400kv 3S as design calls for. The first Camo of course has that FMS.

Vulcan Duo ....



Just need wait for suitable weather for maidens .......... both have bungee hooks fitted.

Still no lightweight at 1kg.
How much thrust do you get?

That was a serious concern as high blade count EDF's have thrust but no speed .... this was born out in tests .... just over 500gr ....

But the model has been flown and is on YT ... more than one has been over 1100gr AUW and still flew well. It literally appears to fly as a powered glider ....
