Since the day it was published, the Tomahawk remained unique with its twin, inverted rudders. For several months I did think about concepts with similar configurations to the Tomahawk. However, as a result of the advent of the upright vertical stabilizer, conformal landing gear and wingtip skids, the twin tail concept was passed over for other designs. In early August 2011, I revisited the twin tail concept, but decided to help it by incorporating features that had not been available for use on the original Tomahawk. Eventually, the Super Tomahawk emerged, and proved an excellent performer. In addition to being a great cruiser, the Super Tomahawk proved versatile enough to make it a testbed aircraft. As a result, this aircraft may be useful for educators seeking to introduce students to aviation.
Some potential experiments possible with this airframe include:
•Weight and balance
•Hangtime versus other aircraft
I am very proud of the Super Tomahawk, and I hope others will like it as much as I do.
TAA USAF Designation: D170-1
Step 1: Materials
1 Piece of 8 by 10 inch graph paper (4 boxes per inch)
Step 2: Begin Construction
After the fuselage is made, take another sheet of paper that is folded in half along the lines of boxes. Mark out the wing as shown (3 boxes in length and 6 boxes in width).
Solid lines indicate places to cut. Dotted lines indicate fold lines.
Note: 1 box = 0.25 inches
