Flying time at full throttle: ca 3 minutes.
Expected lifetime of the plane at full throttle: 15-25, max 50 starts - sic!
Major failures: 1) Broken fuselage or fissures under cabin and wing due to high speed landings in the grass. 2) Exploded wing due to high g maneuvres (elevon max +- 3mm). 3) Burning ESC (min 70amp).
Be aware. Don't forget that you do these mods at your own risk. If you are not trained with high speed planes, ensure an acclimatization phase with slower planes first. Be prepared to land a heavy high speed plane. Even without motor it sails incredibly far.

I hope you find these mods interesting, Bill

Part2
Servos, small sized and strong: Dymond d60, Emax ds3302 or equivalent.
Angle of incidence: 0 deg. To master the plane at high speed it should by itself fly straight horizontally, up and down. Thus correct the wing angles as follows. Wing: Put 7-9 layers of heavy tape (0.1mm thick) on top of each other just behind the wing screw to reach a distance of 3.5mm (!) between the tail side of the wing and the fuselage. Elevon: Put 1-2 layers of heavy tape under the front part of the elevon wing.
Flying weight: ca 1000gr.
Flying speed: Very fast. Tell me.

Part1
Motor: Dr Mad Thrust 2950, 3300kv/1100w/4s.
Battery: Turnigy nano tech, 4s, 2200mAh, 45-90A. Block the battery with a foam cube of 2x2x1cm you glue into the fuselage through the wing bay at the battery's end according to the CG (45mm).
ESC: Red Brick 70amp with BEC. This big and rugged ESC comes with too short cables for our purposes. Lengthen them to place the ESC as far behind as you can in the fuselage - eg behind the wing. This saves you the space you need to place or remove the battery throughout the cockpit. Put the receiver even farther back in the fuse as the ESC.
Prop: Fix prop, APC style, 5x5 or 4.75x4.75. The harder the better.
Spinner: Alloy e-Prop, 4mm. Don't bother about the aerodynamics.

Flying a Reverb (Mini Hawk, Swift) equipped with a motor of over 1kW constitutes undoubtly a milestone for every rc pilot! I fly the following configuration (see part 1-3) since a few seasons. All components are from HK, except the servos. Enjoy, Bill.

Reverb Full Composite High Performance Electric Glider 1320mm



Reçue emballé dans de la mousse et sans dommage dans un carton costaud et trés compact.



N'ayant aucune information de CG, j'ai contacté le Live Chat un "spécialiste produit" qui n'a pu exaucer ma demande comme toutes les autres demandes que j'ai pu faire par le Live Chat, qui n'existe que pour vous dire qu'ils sont d'accord mais n'apporte aucune solution !

Un comble sachant que ce modèle est vendu depuis quelques années par Hobby King et le prix du modele !



La finition du planeur est trés correct, mais aucune information dans le carton concernant le CG, l'implantation des servos...



Les chapes livrés dans le kit sont inutiles car la qualité est médiocre et trop longue pour un montage dans les ailes...

Finalement, par manque de place dans les espaces prévu pour le montage des servos dans les ailes, j'ai dû coller les servos a l’époxy comme celui de la profondeur.

J'ai dû rajouter des rallonges de servo auto sécurisé de 30 cm. (X3)



J'ai mis un moteur 35mm (celui préconisé étant une fois de plus indisponible) qui passe tout juste et qui offre l'avantage d'avoir un axe de 5mm et de pouvoir mettre un cône de 40mm (seul disponible).

Le cône dépasse de 2 mm de chaque côté mais n’influe apparemment pas sur le vol.

J'ai dû mettre une cale pour aligner le stabilisateur sur l'aile.



Le montage est simple mais demande d'être très méticuleux.



Le SET UP est une version ECO mais fonctionne déjà pas mal :

The plane Arrived well packaged in a sturdy cardboard box. The Build is quick if u know what u are doing. The air frame is very versatile and can run on either a pylon setup or hot-liner setup. The fuselage is very roomy and has plenty of room for big batteries. It has very benign stall characteristics, and lands easily with spoilerons. I would recommend this plane for anyone looking for speed!
CG range 50-52 cm behind LE

Read all the reviews and was a bit concerned about shipping damages. Took a chance and turns out my worries were unfounded, the plane was extremely well packaged and arrived in perfect condition. I can't believe how good the overall quality, fit and finish really is. I have never seen an ARF as nice as this, and oh so very light!! Sad that the season is almost over, and I prolly wont have a chance to have her done before the snow flies! At least there's one more thing to look forward to next spring!
