Moses Silente + Onda 683S + 483

Postby dan_kan » Sat Feb 23, 2019 6:18 pm

Maybe someone will benefit from this conversion.
I designed and tested the Moses Silente foil adapters for the Onda 683 and 483 wings.
The profile has been developed assuming that the assembly screws connecting the wings 683 and 483 with the original keel are perfectly vertical. To check the assumption itself, without waiting for a casting of resin, I printed with PETG 100% fill, mounted and .. works :o
I did not even have to move my foil nearer to the stern, and by default it is set to the right up to the front (I hold the rear foot in front of the strap)
It flies great, although some shuttlecocks were humming, so I will need to treat them with water paper.
Wing spacing went 70cm, originally ~ 75cm, but the front wing is mounted in Silente closer to the foil, so the rear, which is the "counterbalance", can also be closer.
Comparative picture - thanks to other user Piotrbyku:
stl files and pictures for 683 and 483: ... F1UmT7hmpm
From the left (all conical screws)
1) 6x20mm, original 6 corner nut from Moses, ground to 12.5mm width
2) 6x20mm,
3) 6x35mm, passes through the wing and adapter so you should not lose your wing
4) 6x20mm,
5) 6x20mm, original nut 6 angled from Moses
6) 6x25mm

From the stern
1) 6x14mm, 6-point cap, gr. 3mm
2) 6x25mm, passes through the wing and adapter
3) 6x20mm
Printing the adapter:
PETG, fill 100%, for me 230oC, table 80oC, 0.2mm
(PLA is stiffer but more fragile and not resistant to UV, ABS is too soft for me)
PETG treats as a transitional stage, I ultimately want to make resin castings, and if someone has access and the ability to make aluminum components, just envy: roll:

Looks awesome!
Imagine how much money you can make making an adapter to mount 633 to 647/680 fuselage

You could use your prints as a pattern and try your hand at alum casting...get a little propane foundry and crucible and your off.

Im not so sure the 647/680 fuselage is a good candidate for a 633 wing adapter....the concave is a lot smaller and the nose is much shorter....
