Great indoor flyer.......I stiffened the wings up with CF bracing.......worth every penny!!!
cheers RobI honestly don't like building 3D planes out of EPP due to flex but the carbon fiber helpedcool plane tricky to buildI would try the 2205 motor instead with this plane!!
I bought the turnigy 2204 and in a gym with no wind and it still needs FULL throttle to hover this plane with the 2204 and still struggles. I'm using a 8 x 3.8 prop so not sure if another prop would make a difference but I think I'll buy the 2205 motor and try that one instead.This plane is a good plane to fly. The only down side to the flying is the wing are super flimsy and at speed they flutter uncontrollably and you need to slow down or the aliens won't work and you'll crash. I more down side is the build it is so hard and the instructions tell you completely nill I wanted to destroy the plane while build because it was so hard, confusing and frustrating.Excelente modelo, voo muito dcil, porem, os ailerons devem ser reforados ou substitudos por um material mais forte, pois em determinadas manobras eles flambam/tremem, e desestabilizam o voo, resultando na queda e quebra do modelo. Mas... Recomendo a todos!
Excellent model, very docile flight, however, the ailerons should be strengthened or replaced with a stronger material, because in certain maneuvers they shake, and destabilize the flight, resulting in the fall and break the model. But.. I recommend to everyone!Very nice airplane for the price WOW so I put an eflite park 250 mtr multiplex 17 amp esc spektrum 6300 micro 6ch receiver 4 1290 turnigy 2.9 gram digital servos 8X3.8 APC prop 325mah 2cell thunder power lipo the plane weighs less then 6oz and has unlimited vertical and is so easy to fly check out the video the could be the nicest 3D plane I've ever owned.A good plane to learn 3D.
My configuration is:
HobbyKing 2403 Brushless Outrunner 2100kv, TowerPro 9g w12A Brushless Speed Controller, Turnigy nano-tech 460mah 2S 25 ~ 40C Lipo, GWS EP Propeller (DD-8040 203x102mm).
In general, it is better to take the TURNIGY 2204-14T 19g Outrunner, but the motor was not in stock.
Necessary to strengthen the design and replacement of some parts - see my uploaded photos.
A. Elongation servo levers.
Two. I used a fiberglass chassis for flexibility on impact.
Three. Tape for hinges included is very rough, I glued (using an elastic adhesive) other (GFT-20x50).
Carbon fiber rods are best to stick to the epoxy adhesive, it is not as fragile as cyanoacrylate.
Flying Weight 200 grams turned out, but I'm not afraid of carrots, though.I have bought this plane and I built it in 4 hours! It's easy to build, but the manual is ####. It flies great! I am using the 2205C 1400Kv Brushless motor, the H-KING 10A Fixed Wing Brushless Speed Controller, 9103MG Metal Gear Servo 4.4g / 0.8kg / .12sec, and Rhino 460mAh 2S 7.4v 20C Lipoly Pack. It flies very great with this electronics, but it is a little bit backheavy! I would highly rcommend this plane for a intermediate pilot!!Hard plane to build! I have built multiple planes before and this one was the trickiest to put together i ended up giving up on it and not finishing the build. And i wouldn't say its "indestructible" when the parts were sitting on my spare bed and our dog got in and decided it would be something nice to chew so damaged the main body EPP foam. But might handle the odd crash OK? if it was built correctly?
