The micro GT-1 comes 90% pre-built and includes motor, esc and required servos to complete.
This cute little plane includes a micro brushless outrunner motor and 5A esc also required is 2 2.5g servos.Just add a 200mah 2S lipo to be flight-ready in one evening.Specifications:Length: 328mmWingspan: 400mmFlying weight: 95-110gMotor: C05 3700kv Brushless outrunnerESC: 5A/2SProp: 4 inchServos: 2x2.5g (Not included)Battery: 7.4V 2S 200mah Lipo (Not included)Required:Your own TX & RX7.4V 2S 200mah Lipo2 x 2.5g

Great light plane for sub-micro reciver instalation :). The included ESC regulator is programable, however programing manual is not included or downloadable :( .I bought this as an indoor plane but found it way too fast for our hall, however I've had a ball flying it at parks & at the club. I find it handles a bit of wind too.i got two of these. made one so far. had trouble finding the CG. the stock prop sucks. soft foam, but looks great and a great value for the price. the motor needs some extra cooling holes. this is the acro bipe that was all the rage converting a few years back. if you get an upper wing with a twist in it, think twice about 'fixing' it. i had a twins in mine and 'fixed' it flat, but the plane has a severe torque roll to it. the twist in the wing would have helped. not sure if this is intentional or not, but i have seen on RCgroups a simular thing happen.
this is not a plane for a beginner build. beginner flyer yes, but beginner builder, no.Didnt like, Motor shaft bent as supplied, it was replaced with piano wire same guage. Rudder hinge sloppy, it also needs hinging to the body at the bottom. Prop adaptor, throw it away and fit a 1.5 mm prop saver, if you don't have one then wind a strip of drink can twice around the prop shaft and use a 2mm prop saver.
Flying is good and will cruise level flight at 1/3 throttle, on full throttle will go verticle on a lighter build than mine, test fly outside.
Setup, rudder /_ 5mm, Elevator /_ 5mm, C.G.approx 9mm behind lower trailing edge, good starting points.
As built, flying weight 87g, battery 360mah (22g), Reciever 6g, servo 2x3.5g. I can easily save 12 g with a change of servos rec. and battery.
Tip, covering the tailskid with fuel tube helps stop ground loops.Following all of the reviews and discussions I took care to make sure the wings were aligned properly. I also unscrewed the motor from the mount and drilled out cooling holes in the firewall so the motor could breath. Using linear servos, I then built a 4 servo aircraft. 2 servos to control the 4 ailerons/flaps, one for rudder, and one for elevator. Even after that the total weight with battery and reciever was still only 70 grams. I don't know why the flying weight is listed at 100 grams. It's nowhere near that heavy. The provided motor/prop combo gives it about 60 grams of static thrust. The plane is NOT RTF. The whole airframe has to be assembled and the control linkages have to be built. All of the required building material is included to make it a 2 channel rudder and elevator controled plane. But the only electronics included are the motor and esc.Wing markings are not correct. After connecting the wings to the designated positions.... they were not aligned.
First flight... sloppy... pulled sharply to the left probably because of the wings. Also... no way to mount the lipo outside. If you mount the lipo inside... you have to rechage it for a second flight. No opening in the
canopy for switching lipos.
buy something elseGreat little plan, take your time to get wing lined up, it can be hard to fix if not done right the first time.gli ho messo due micro servi nelle ali da due grammi, uno al direzionale ed al profondit di 3,7,devo decidere per l'apertura, ma penso di incollare tutto e ricavarla nella capottina per accedere anche ai servi,invier fotoBe careful mounting the upper wing. The preassembled struts are off. The motor burned out after 15 seconds of full power on a 7.4V 2S 240mah Lipo. The motor cooling is completely blocked off by the mounting plate. My 2nd attempt will be to use a smaller battery, 200mah, and open up the mounting plate for some cooling.Received 6/8/2010. Package in good shape. No servos. Some places say includes servos, some places say 2 servos needed. One wing sturt connection point in wrong place, easy to correct. Stablizer connection piece not on straight,not easy to correct. Shoddy workmanship, probably will have to replace stab, very hard to remove to replace.
