The Teksumo is a fun combat wing made from almost unbreakble EPP foam that is easy and cheap to build and will provide hours of "fly it like you stole" it fun!
Wings of course have a huge flight envelope, it's one of the reasons they are so popular, you can trickle along at walking pace, fly aerobatic or just see exactly how low 'n' fast you can get away with! Get it wrong? No problem, 5 minutes with some cyano & kicker and you are back in the air with a silly grin on your face!
With the reccomended power train, your Teksumo will have plenty of performance and won't cost the earth. You and your flying buddies can have hours of fun ripping up the sky with some high adrenalin combat flying safe in the knowledge that when the inevitable happens, you can fix it in double quick time!

It's a good wing . I'm running a 2826 2200kv motor on 3 cell 2200 and it goes fast enough. I also laminated mine for a smother finish and added a few carbon strips in the leading edges. I'm yet to crash mine as I'm using it as an fpv craft, but I've seen others first hand that have had many hard impacts, and with a little glue they are back in the air in no time! Very easy to repair.i would recommend these for anyone wanting to get in to flying wings.Goes together nicely. Flys really great. Wide speed envelope. No complaints. Durable. Although we stuffed it in and broke the nose off. Not the plane's fault.
Recommend!This plane is the first thing that I fly when I get to a field. I run a Turnigy D2822/14 1450 KV motor with a 7x5 prop and get my electrons from 1300 3S batteries. Flying conservatively will give me about 20 minutes of flight but playing hard will drain the battery in about 8 minutes. My longest flight lasted 28 minutes. I enjoy flying into 15 MPH or faster wind and shutting off the motor and then seeing how long I can glide or fly backwards. I have been able to float on thermals and have coaxed vultures and hawks into the area by flying slow circles up high. For a visually stimulating flight, tape 35 foot long crepe paper streamers onto each wingtip fence. Doing rolls, loops, and low altitude high speed passes with 2 long streamers is a blast. And it looks cool as heck. I fly my original, 3 year old wing slowly with streamers on it and let quad and airplane pilots try to cut the streamers. When the EPP wing gets hit and crashes (as it has numerous times), I pick up all of the broken pieces and glue it back together and then play target again. When an elevon gets ripped off, I use strapping tape as an emergency repair for the day and glue regular hinges into the plane when I get it home. I modified the newest wing that I built by moving the battery and electronics to the top side and filling the original holes in the bottom with 1/32" plywood. This has made the plane even more responsive because it is not as bottom heavy. I've added 3 landing skids to the bottom of the wing to help protect it and use a prop saver with an o-ring to prevent prop breakage. To add to the glide slope, program the ESC to turn the brake on when you chop the throttle. I have more than 20 r/c airplanes and if I had to give them all up except for one, this is the plane that I would keep. With this plane you get a lot more than what you pay for.Love it! I have 3 of them setup for 3 and 4s one fpv. Super stable flyers, Super easy to repair. You cant beat the value Great wing!Easy to build, Easy to repair, Great for combat!!!good flying wing, easy to build too.What can you say about a teksumo, it's the best wing for this size money can buy, this will be my second of which I still have the first after being broken into 3 or 4 pieces many times, If your wondering are they any good? YES they are very GOOD!Flys very well, been years since i had a powered flying wing, i'm using the Turnigy D2826-6 2200kv motor and flys just right, not super fast, also using a 2200 lipo with it slightly nose heavy and some up trim.Have had loads of flying wings in the past and this is just as good, only thing is HK you need to bring out a mini folding prop for it. it will only be a matter of time before on the "landings" the prop or motor snaps off, Well that happened on the first landing, Have fixed it but no good unless you can get a folding prop really.Very good wing for beginners or experienced pilots looking for a fun cost-effective flyer. A good inexpensive setup is: Turnigy 2826-2200 kv motor, HK 20 amp ESC, 3s-2200 battery (need to cut out a bit of foam to fit), HXT 900 servos and a 6 X5 prop. A little CA glue or Goop and away you go!
