Work started today more or less on the F22. Here are a few pics of whats happening so far.

After much head banging over the internal layout i think i have come up with a plan that will work. The object here is #1 to keep it simple. #2 it has to be functional to the point where anyone can use it and #3 light weight!!!
With the major components installed this thing is rapidly gaining heavyweight status Since it's going to hang from the ceiling it has to be built rugged so i guess there is going to be some tradeoff

Starting at the front under the cockpit is the HD. I know first thought is the Western Digital Raptor but since i just got done buying a couple more for "Colusus" i am out of funds for the next couple months unless someone wants to donate one.
So instead I'm going to use a trusty wd 80 for now and use a non sata mobo to save some money.

Where the 2 intakes converge is a 120mm delta. Next is the nec dual layer DVD and will push the weapons bay doors open to eject the disk. I wanted a slot loading dual layer but have yet to find one.

Then is the ASUS A7N8X with a 2600 residing in the socket.
I have always been a fan of Asus and picked this board for the price and built in video. Using a AGP card is possible but would require modification to the point that it would be usless in any other computer.

Next the PSU. I'm going with an Antec this time and straying away from the usual Fortron. Not because i am mad at Fortron but i had this antec on hand and it looked like it would fit the bill perfectly. With the outer case removed it's actually quite small and takes up much less space than i expected.

Last is the 2nd. Delta on the intake side of the exhaust duct. It's probably not needed but i thought it would be kinda neat to have real air moving out the tail and trust me it does!!!

The wings are basicly done with the exception of mounting them to the fuse and wiring the anti colision and nav lights. This this is awkward to work with even with the wings off so be to leave them till last.

The cockpit is being done by my oldest girl "The Artist" and will include a full body pilot, Green iluminated HUD and clear bronze tinted canopy for stealth.
Also i decided to go ahead and make all controll surfaces movable and also the air refueling door for sound connectors and the air start and ground power for USB and firwire points. The controll surfaces will be controlled by my Thrustmaster Cougar, Throttle and rudder pedals.

I'm still working on how to incorperate an lcd to display temps and fan speed as "EGT and Engine Percent"

Final paint will be gray camo as Raptor 02.

Project pics can be seen here. http://www.ocforums.com/showthread.php?t=354428

Let the questions and comments roll................

I've got an old engine that I'd LOVE to ditch. I mention what I want for it and they look at me like I'm retarded (not that it's abnormal to look at me like that :D ).

Chumly I hear ya! I have found over the last 15 years of rc planes and heli's that rc people can be the biggest tightwads of all " Me included!" but when OS quite making the .91 vr-df you would think they would hold their value but noooooooo!

Anyhow i tried to sell this fuse some time back and the best offer i got was $200 so i thought "what else can i do with it?" and then the light bulb came on!!!

Size limits what you can stuff inside but it wont matter. Dont get me wrong but it seems to me that most people are happy with the same square box, add some lights and a window and the have a modded case. I love the mods like in an old tv or home stereo component, the wood boxes and so on.

The next project after this will be a Craftsman roll around tool box so when you need to work on somthing you just pull out a drawer :D
Think about all the room you would have inside plus a place on top to write notes!!! :lol:

LOL...yes! A roll around...that's such a good idea. I'll have to steal that one too some day perhaps. Pull out keyboard tray, flip up display, 32-piece wrench set...Where's Tim Allen???

I modded my refridgerator out in my garage to look like a rollaround. I saw some company selling sticker kits to do this, but decided I could do it just as easly. If I had a roll around sitting by it, It'd blow peoples minds when I send them to look for a tool. "hey, this thing isn't a tool box! Oh, this one has beer...and that one is playing porn!"

I just need somthing like a roll around since i cant leave well enough alone!!

Always changing things from this to that.

Just think a big roll around with Binford on the side and Debbie Dunning sitting on top in those tight cuttoffs and a wet t-shirt tied in a not. :lol:

Man if i came home to that i'd never leave the house again!!!


I'm thinking somthing like this: http://www.tvacres.com/images/tool_time_girl3.jpg
