Description

The Target Drone is a great little FPV platform that has been specifically designed for the job and not only is the kit cheap to buy, this great little model is also cheap to get in the air.

The Target Drone features an FG fuselage that is open at the front for camera mounting, there is also a built in anti-glare cover. The model is designed for a pusher motor as you would expect and it also features a mid mounted, large hatch for battery and equipment access, the large and open fuselage area not only has plenty of room for your FPV equipment and lipoly, it also provides plenty of battery and ESC cooling from the open front fuselage. The under carriage is robust, featuring screw in alloy leg's at the rear and a steerable nose wheel up front.

The Target Drone is a pretty quick build, servo extension leads are pre-installed into the balsa wing, which is mounted on a CF rod and epoxied into place. The supplied hardware is comprensive and the overall parts count low, meaning you will be experiencing FPV in double quick time. The Target Drone, with it's tailess, swept wing is one of the most unusual and interesting EP FPV models in it's class yet and is sure to get people's attention wherever it flies!

The plane flies very well, if you set the correct CG. (250mm from the rear edge) The downside - very heavy landing gear. Buy the right carbon 120mm height. Fold back the front landing gear, otherwise it will tear off landing))) Good luck!

Its very small and looks crap. I dont know how you fly this thing. You can probably build something like this at home.

The target drone does fly it does require quite a bit of work to get it into the air with setting of wing incidence twisting of the wings and recalculating the CG. With the wing design it flies quite fast. I have been working on this now on and off for two weeks and will have another test fly this week-end. What is needed is at least another Target drone to optomize the the wing incidence and CG settings so that I can have confidence in the final setup. For those wanting to experiment the starting point is as follows: wing incidence 2 degrees positive at root - wing twisting to Zero degrees at tip, CG 125 - 128mm behind leading edge at root.



Good Luck

The good: Quality and Value exceptional - Mine arrived well packaged with no damage, the plane went together well, and apart from a bit of mucking around on the nose wheel it was really good. I beefed up the nosewheel and the fiberglass around the wing mounting and glued the wings in. Was planning on mounting the motor internally however there wasnt enough room to play with installing it. Installed recommended motor, 45A ESC and micro servos as well as FPV pan/tilt camera setup and tx.
The Bad: 3 failed attempts at maidening this plane, have tried the middle of the recommended C of G as well as both extremes and every time it lunged vertically on take off, stalled, and then fell on its back.

If this plane flew and was stable it would be a solid 5/5 but until that time it is completely unflyable. Hopefully someone gets this sorted and can report on the right C of G, until then mine will be gathering dust which is a shame for such a nice looking model.

Really catch looking model, but not for beginners. Would be nice to have the front wheel hole pre-drilled. Wings have to be glued on.

Received mine in good condition.
No instruction on where the CG should be.
Based on CG calculator about 188mm from front leading edge.
Nose heavy with 2200 3S lipo.
Ready to maiden, but i think I will need the flight stabilizer to maiden it.

This is just a manufacturing and packaging review... I still have to fly it.



1 stars, both wings have the tip bumped and there is also some bump here and there in the top surface.



One wing has the hole for the carbon rod closed by excessive glue usage (I will have to drill it hoping that there is not glue also deep inside the hole where my drill can't arrive).



The place for carbon tube inside the fuselage is not aligned with the fuselage and the right is lower than left and anyway it's also too large for the carbon rod, there is a lot of play. wings won't be solid with the fuselage.



There are no air scoops for motor/esc ventilation.



Will post more once the airplane is ready and maiden.
