Ein schnes modell aber leider mus mann noch ein bisschen basteln bis der Akku richtig rein geht und es ist sinnvoll ein reinen 4-kanal empfnger zu nehmen am besten den OrangeRX R410 den habe ich verbaut und ich verwende den ZIPPY Compact 500mAh 2S 35C Lipo Pack (ZC.500.2S.35)Bei diesem modell Flugzeit ca 10 minuten.
Das modell lsst sich einmal richtig Eingestellt echt super fliegen bin zu frieden.Preo razovel no Brasil.
A entrega foi muito rpida, levou uns 2 dias.
Ainda no voei com ele.not a beginner plane at all, which i found out the hard way. way to fast and heavy for indoor. battery hatch is microscopic plus the support strut is in the way which makes it even more difficult.decals and landing gear are poor. really i would not recomend this or any easysky product ( i jave a few) to any one unless you are super good pilot and love fixing/repairing. there is also a cessna like this but just as bad.Der Mhle ist mir zu schnell fr die Turnhalle ... Die Kiste hat zwar ausreichend Dampf; durch das rel. hohe Gewicht will sie aber auch ordentlich Geschwindigkeit.The speed controller cough fire on second flight and I was using the recommend 2 cell 500 mah so if you do get one change the speed controller but I would not buy thisI now have flown this for the better part of a year. Very high quality motor, plenty of power. Servos and speed controller seem to work very well. The plane has a very dense foam. I love the spring loaded motor mount! A 500 mah 2s turnigy barely fits in the battery hatch but provides 12-15 minute flights if you fly gently. Recommend a piece of tape to ensure hatch stays closed in flight and to reinforce the foam where the hinges mount with glue. Seems to fly best with slightly forward C of G (used a orange micro 410 rx pushed into the nose with battery forward also) and both ailerons about 1/8" above level with wing.
Now for the bad....This plane flies ok, but not great. Have tinkered with it a ton and come to the conclusion it is too heavy for the amount of wing area it has. It has to fly very fast, it will not float. Just a little bigger than an ultra micro from another major manufacture, but about 3 times the weight. This little thing is heavy! The paint will come off if you touch it (I think oil from skin attacks it), where I hold it to hand launch is all bare white foam now. This plane has been one that has been passed between me and all my friends because although it flies, it does not fly great. It is kind of hard to fly, not because it is too fast but because of some bad habits. It will stall if you try to slow it down. Even with lots of throw the aileMini avioncito genial, necesita poco espacio para volar y es muy muy ligero! Cuidado con el viento!Istruzioni minime se non addirittura inutili, ma per fortuna non difficile capire come si monta. Togliete la vernive prima di incollare qualsiasi pezzo, altrimenti la colla far presa solo sulla vernice, che si stacca subito.
Una volta incollate le barre laterali sotto le ali, diventa impossibile smontare le ali per accedere al vano interno, che risulta comunque troppo piccolo per inserire le batterie consigliate.
Il CG posizionato a 30mm dal bordo d'entrata dell'ala e per farlo stare li, si devono mettere le batterie sotto la fusoliera e portarle pi avanti del carrello. Tanto le batterie non sarebbero entrate da nessuna parte.
Regolare il castello motore dai 3/4 sia in basso che a destra.
molto difficile il controllo con le ruote cos piccole, ma una volta staccatosi da terra, facilmente governabile
Stabile, sia in velocit che a met stick, molto reattivo. E' stato il primo aereo RC che mio figlio (11 anni) ha portato in volo dopo aver fatto pratica con i simulatori. Tutto ok.
Praticamente impossibile riuscire ad atterrare con le ruote cos piccole, si impunta subito.
molte cadute, su terra e su erba. Nessun danno.Things I changed:
- Removed the weights in the front of the fuselage (9 grams) and glued 2 grams in front of the cowling.
- Fastened the Esc on cocktail-sticks and glued it in the place of the weights, so that it would be positioned in the cowling. (replaced it later with a turnigy 12A)
- Replaced the wheels (total 2 grams) with bigger wheels (12 grams).
- Changed strut assembly, so that it could be unscrewed and detached.
- Used a longer tube for the linkage of the ailerons, for better control.
- Created more air-holes and a fake engine (I don't like the engine-decal)
- After a few flights it had a tip-stall (pilot-error), so took some measures to reduce this.
Data and setup after the changes:
- Weight 149 grams without battery and receiver.
- Receiver 9 grams, 350mah lipo 21 grams, 500 mah lipo 30 grams.
- Flying weight between 179 and 188 grams.
- CG at 30mm from leading edge.
- Engine 3 degrees side-thrust and 4.5 degrees down-thrust.
- Ailerons 90pcnt dual-rate and 20pcnt expo.
- Elevator 120pcnt dual-rateI love this plane!
I have 10 flights with it and it flies really well (both slow and docile as fast and agile), but you have to tinker a bit with it before it flies well. I fly it with both 350mah and 500mah (I prefer the 350mah). The plane is sturdy has survived a lot of abuse (even a 90 degrees nose down crash from 10 meters). I have ordered another one (for a rebuild with lighter servo's and flaps)
I wouldn't fly it straight ouf of the box though, as it has some issues.
The Esc is a write-off Hence only 3 stars for quality). Mine was getting hot. Made some extra cooling holes in the engine cowling but that didn't help. On the 4th dry-run it popped. I replaced it with a Turnigy 12A.
I changed the strut assembly (you really need the struts when doing acro), Aileron linkage, Esc location, wheels and added a fake engine (cosmetics).
