|Static motor parameters||3S Kokam 3S1P 15C 1250mAh pack gave 15.6A @ 10.2V (159W) and 7620 rpm. This equates to an input power of ~150W/lb.|
|Flight performance||The flying is a little strange, possibly due to the flat sided fuselage with any side-slip. The vertical performance is excellent and almost any manoeuvre is possible due to the large control movements. I never tried 3D.|
12 Jan 14 - This model has been sat in my garage for ages unflown and suffered a fair bit of hangar rash due to the extremely fragile construction. I'm trying to clear some space for other, more desirable, models and didn't consider this model suitable to sell; I have therefore scrapped it. The only thing I can really say is that it wasn't a "Great Plane."
14 Jun 09 - Another wonderful sunny day with little wind; ideal for testing new models.
13 Jun 09 - I bought this a while ago at a BEFA Technical Workshop. I intended to use a variable pitch propeller and had it almost ready to fly. However, during the motor test the propeller self-destructed damaging the nose of the plane. I put it to one side as I haf other things to do and only just got around to completing it; I also had to shorten the nose to get the stated CofG position.
