I started to build an He-162 about two years ago from my own design and it was originally designed to be powered with a Axiflow RK049 glow fan built by a friend (Sundance12). After I realized that my aircraft was too big for the fan, I decide to convert it to an electric fan and to add retracts.

Hi Shotgun06
 
Thanks for showing us your HE-162 build project, it looks like a fine job so far. What are you planning to power it with now that the RK.049 is not the engine to use?
 
cheers

Here is the new fan set up. It's a 3"Hayoe fan powered by a KD2847-15S Inrunner with 60A controller and a 4s1p 2200 mHa lipo.

I have seen the video of this setup run and it is really impressive, I am continually amazed at how far electric motors and batteries have come since the 80's. The ducted fan options are amazing and some of the jet planes that are flying are superb. Keep up the good work and send a few more images on the HE-162.

Hi SG06,

Nice build. What is the finish I saw in the initial photo?

The finish is Silkspan and dope because originaly it was supposed to be powered by an Axiflow fan with a Tee Dee 0.051 . I will probably refinish it with acrylic now that I converted it to electric. My wife doesn't appreciate the smell of dope that much... Wink

Some more details. The mechanism is installed in the fuselage. The main landing gear and the nosewheel will be operated from a single retract servo installed in the cockpit.

Nice looking build. Couple of questions:
1) Anything new to report?
2) Will you be using a separate BEC to support the servos if so which one?
Looking forward to the completion flight of this one.

I made some work on the nose gear retract and I will post pictures later. I'm now working on the gear doors. Not sure if I'm going to use a separate BEC or a separate battery pack for the radio. I have the Bec if required but if the plane needs weight in the nose for balance I will just put a battery pack there instaed of lead.

Thanks for the information Alain. The use of a separate battery as you mentioned, instead of lead is a good solution if needed. Extra weight if it can be eliminated would be a good thing to strive for though. Haven't had to use a BEC separate from the ESCs I have been using so far but I have purchased some for projects I have lined up. Have you used separate BECs before in your jets? Hope the retracts work out well for you with the single servo. What retracts are you using?

Sure is nice to have the electric fans to work with now. Gas fans were hard to work with and not real easy to start, messy and were a lot noisier.

Looking forward to your posts! Smiley

The Heinkel He-162 is actually a first for me in many area. It is my first electric plane, first jet and the first scale aircraft I design. I'm planning to test fly the ducted fan on some foamie before test flying the Heinkel just to make sure nothing will burn since I learned that the lipos and ESC are sometimes prone to self ignite. I would hate to see my He-162 going down as a ball of fire... Shocked The retracts I am using are Robarts 600 series for the main and their 1/2A nose gear retract. The retracts are installed and working good. I will try to post a video of their operation. I also replaced the 1/8 wire leg with aluminum shock absorbing gear leg. I am now working on the gear doors.

I have never use a separate BEC myself as I have never flown electric airplane. Just as you I have bought one just in case.

I have been distracted lately from working on that project as I had to install harwood flooring (different kind of wood work) the wife didn't like the carpets anymore...you know you got to keep her happy otherwise nobody's happy Wink Anyway, I finally succeeded to complete the retract instalation with the gear doors yesterday. I will post a video and some pictures later this week. All I have left to do now is complete the canopy and cockpit, fine tuned the fan, paint and detailed the plane a bit. I might have to postpone this project again as flying season is at our door and I need a sport model to fly. Oh well, I will be posting on the Frankenstein build or maybe I will post a CG Falcon 56 build on this forum. Oh yeah and I have my HOB P-51 to complete, and that Pilot Nieuport 28 kit and that small electric racer and ...

Great work on the LG and a good video of the retraction and gear door sequence.

Thanks

Now I 'm gonna have to put that project aside for a while as I have to work on a sport plane for the coming summer but I will come back to it later and keep you informed of my progress.

Hi Alain,

Great video! Better yet, great engineering and workmanship!!!!!

I have to tell you, I was in Texas recently and a friend took me out behind the house for my first RC experience. I'm a pilot and I figured, 'nothing to it.' Wrong! He had to take the box away from me twice as I nearly smashed his beautiful trainer into the turf!

I can only imagine how much skill it will take to fly this He-162. Bravo to you.

Thanks OOB

I'm a pilot myself and I find it way more difficult to fly R/C than any full size aircraft. It is always a challenge, I get to meet great people and the chance to fly airplane that I will never be able to fly the real full size counterpart like the Heinkel He-162...

It's just a great hobby

Alain, Your jet is totally fantastic. This model was one of the first I ever saw when I was looking over at Hobby Lobby's website. You've sheeted the whole airframe. How much does it weigh and how big is it? I must say, your building skills are great. Wish I could skin an airplane that well. Look forward to more from you.
