HobbyKing Tristania-EPP High-Performance 3D Airplane w/ Motor
A lightweight and agile high performance 3D plane that will push your skills to the limits! Reinforced with CF, and complete with option fins for precision tracking, this plane is designed for ultimate 3D and beyond!
This kit includes a 3D ready motor, prop saver and propeller. You just need 2 5g and 2 9g servos, a 12~15A ESC, 800mAh battery and receiver. Construction time is around 3hrs.
not That i know of, You woul probably have to modify one with some carbon and Brass tubes Plus some Elastic bands to hold on the wings
or the Alternative would be
PRODUCT ID: 9420000001
Which is a Full Fuse EPP Edge 540 with Detrachable Wings...
CR pls if you find this helpful
I just finished putting the plane together and I love it, but the only problem is that the motor got quite hot after thirty seconds and anything over forty percent throttle the engine started making a whistling noise. I am using a 20 amp ESC and a 2s 460Mah battery. Please let me know if I should use a different prop then the one it came with and what size and pitch propeller I should use to avoid burning out the motor and reduce the motor noise. I will issue credit. Thanks.
I don't really have an answer for you but I'm using the stock motor and 8x4 propellers with a 12A plush ESC. I don't have a problem with the motor getting unusually hot or noises. Perhaps it's just a bad motor?
I think the only option you have going down in propeller size would be 6x3 which I think would be a bit to small. You can always change the motor? TURNIGY 2204-14T or Turnigy Aerodrive SK3 - 2122
Thanks, I issued credit, I put in a different motor and now it flies great, I would buy it again for the frame alone when this one starts breaking down, and replacement motor are dirt cheap on hobbyking if I end up with another bad motor. The fact that the motor was functioning made me look elsewhere for the problem in the beginning.
HI .. WILL ANY OTHER PLANES IN THIS COMPANIES HANGAR FLY LIKE THIS. i love this plane n what it does it is so slo****? is the way it floats n what it does in the air like f3p or just 3d flying ..?. i figure i have nosed her in 1000 times now .wow tuff but hevvy maintenance when u play all day , 10 kpm . wind only .thx. ps .not galaxy cause it so ugly.
no, only 5 times.
And yes, the boxes are heavy. I just got a similar plane in the mail and the shipping weight was with in a few grams of HK weight. Cardboard is heavier then foam, that is why they don't make planes out of it :)
It's a bit confusing maybe, but the shipping weight/cost is calculated in volume, so most of the times it has nothing to do with product weight. That's way a light product with a rather big volume has a high "weight"
It is ok, but is more of a pattern plane. If you get it, have an experienced indoor pilot help you with the set up. It is EPP, but doesn't look like it would stand up to crashes very well. If you want something more durable, check out a yak of an edge from ***********e-foamy****/. Good Luck!
190-210 grams is awful heavy for an F3P aircraft. I'm assuming that is atleast what this model is partially intended for since it takes many of it's design cues from such aircraft. It would be a bit of a shame if it was merely a dolled-up 3D model.
Lets see something like this with a 135 gram flying weight!
Hello, L'hlice sur les photo est monte l'envers... Bons vols ! Phil
1 thumbs up!
This is the same plane as the techone spirit,Flys very well and can be set up below 6oz auw with very light gear. The dual aileron servos allow for precise control and differential fine tuning. I have several flights on mine and it flys great at 7.1oz but floats even better in the 6oz range now with the turnigy 2204-14T outrunner on a 2s 500mah lipo. Heres some video of my first flights with www.link
This is a great plane. Easy to build and fly like a dream. Can fly so slow it allmost stands still. I made longer rudder horns so i get more movment on rudders. Im going to by one more whit bigger motor for outside flying. Love this plane :)
