This craft is a 1:1 scale full stock replica of the H-4 Hercules, more popularly known as the Spruce Goose. This craft, while relatively simple in its design, ended up being one of my more involved replicas, with a large amount of work and experimentation put into replicating the design. The craft is powered entirely by 8 of my R-4360 turboprops, which combined produce 3200 kN of thrust. The wings of this replica represent my first attempt at fully constructing a custom aerofoil. The technique used is effective, but I have since improved upon it,and you can expect more advanced versions of it
Before Reading I'd recommend that you'd watch Bradley Whistance's video on his stock prop speed test. The method he outlines is not relevant to the actual math work, and simply affects the values I will be plugging in. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J7oc1FLnWlY&t=438s I will only discuss the resulting data in this thread to keep things simple, if you have specific questions about the math, let me know. With that out of the way, let me preface this discussion. The dominant method of powering stock props is by using RTGs, which makes sense. They continuously generate powe
This is a stock 1:1 scale replica of the Pratt & Whitney R-4360 Wasp Major propeller engine. This engine utilizes 40 1.25 meter reaction wheels and produces a modest 230 kN of thrust. The bearing is very strong, and the engine is extremely smooth when operating. Its root-part is a large girder, allowing it to be easily attached to another craft. It should be noted that the thrust value mentioned is when the blades are set to maximize stationary thrust.
