  • AMR Payload Master 100 / Icarus2

    Finally getting "back in the saddle: on the AMR Payload Master construction after an extended pause.......

    Progress so far......converted the flaps to top driven 180 degree servo movement .... an effort to keep the flaps up when the power is off and lower current requirements when down

    Got stuck on the firewall forward section - was going to put a DA150 ....but found out the size of the engine was incompatible with my cowl.
    So I opted for a DA120 that was smaller than the MVVS 116 that was in my old one.......Then, because of the Bidule170 build, I found a DA170 would fit in the cowl (with some minor adjustment)

    Here is the DA 120 vs DA170 in the Cowl

          After the standard Poly-Spray application ( so the covering won't be see thru ) it's on to the base white

            Hi Scot,
            I'm so happy to see you back on this build. Reading the engine post above leave me wondering, are you going 120 or 170?
            Its been a while since I have seen the Payload Master, what are the parts in the forth picture of post 1?

              Hi Len,

              Fourth picture in post 1 is current fin/ rudder vs. old version
              Original PayLoad Master 100 suffered from depleted electron resources and "surface contact"
              the following "compact" photos are circa 2013

              Decided to re-re-re-engine with the new DLE-130 so as to avoid making a new cowl ( didn't want the spark plug caps sticking out of the Icarus wing graphic on the front of the cowl )

              In looking over the Falcon Propeller chart, I won't be loosing that much performance from the 170/150 ( 32.5 kg thrust vs 38 Kg. )
