Re: T2 - Aerial Hunter Killer Machine

Thanks guy's ,
Iv'e just ordered some optic fiber and some more LED's and resisters gonna add a few more little tricks . I'll see how far I can go with the model till the other parts arrive , I'm gonna experiment with the Nav light's as I've seen they are on front and rear of the tail sponsons ( hense the fiber optics ) .
I'm eager to start and the model is screaming .....START ME .... START ME ;D

I will keep you posted .

Re: T2 - Aerial Hunter Killer Machine

Well .... the fiber optic 2mm came today which fits like a treat ....



The next problem is how I tackle suppling the light from my LED in the wing through the fiber optic , I was going to bend the optics to 90 degrees and run them back to back to form a capital T shape but the end of the wings aren't wide enough to support the optics running inside ? I can channel them a little and hopefully this will allow my original idea .
I do have a back up idea to test .... I have a theory to try out ... if it works I shall share with you all .

Re: T2 - Aerial Hunter Killer Machine

Result .... it works .
my idea was to carve a 90 degree wedge from the main optic and run a single optic that has 90 degree wedge on the end , marry the 2 together to for the " T " shape ....



when I tested the " T " shape with the light shining up the single upright the result works , it supplies light to both ends of the upright ...



The above image has the " T " shape held horizontally so you can see the light shining from one of the ends ,it does shine out of both so that gives me the option of one LED giving 2 light ports .
I don't know if anybody has already tested this theory with optics ? but it does work ;D

Re: T2 - Aerial Hunter Killer Machine

Great idea that, as right angles were something I did not think was possible with optics.
I just didn't think it through and use 2 joined like that.

I also have the kit on the shelf waiting to be built so ill be checking back on this regularly

Cheers WebbyNZ ,
I just thought about it but didn't know if it would work as well as I needed it to but the light really does pass through the joints .

Re: T2 - Aerial Hunter Killer Machine

Update ......
Hi guy's . I smashed on over the weekend got all the LED's wired up an run through the syand into the base , I checked my wiring for any shorts before attaching the top .
I now need to paint the Hunter and the stand ...also the base but I need to widen the base so that I can fit the Battery in there . I have took photo's n was gonna put a video together but my Laptop has fallen out with me and doesn't want to turn on !
I'll try to upload a few pics in a couple of hours .... I'll borrow works computer ;)
