Last saturday, thanks to the help of our Master Builder in the area, Gary McCartney, I was able to maiden my Cumulus.

After the first flight where the model was slightly nose heavy, Gary took the piece
of weight that he thought the model will need for a proper balancing and bingo..!! it was just a perfect CG location without the need of any extra modification.

The model flew like an oversized HLG.

It will detect and show the smallest raising air it's going through.

Despite the overall lightweight it moves very quickly from one area of the sky to another. Nice "legs"...!!

Here are some of the technical details of the flying unit:

Model: Cumulus by Reichard, 2.5m wingspan
Motor: Black Magic 2208/15 1150Kv

Servos: Flaps, rudder, elevator = Airtronics 94802 Sub-micro digital 7.4g
Servos: Ailerons = BlueArrow D05010MG (digital, metal gears) 5.9g
Rx: Futaba 7ch, 2.4Ghz
ESC: AWH Matrix 25A

Model all up wt.: 692.5 gr (24.3 oz)

Wing loading: 17.06 gr/dm2 (5.19 oz/sq.ft.)

Yesterday (Oct.28'2010) we made the maiden flight on this very light weight (AUW=20oz), F5J competition electro glider.
Gary (our friend's masterbuilder) installed on it:
Motor: AXI 2208/34
ESC: Castle Creations-Thunderbird 18A
Spinner: HC aluminum 35mm dia.
Prop: HC folding 10x6 (later on we tried a Multiplex 12x6 with much better results-pulling only 11.5A)
Aileron/Flaps servos: Airtronics mini digital 94802
Rudder/stab servos: HC 6.5g micro digital 20oz/in torque
Battery: HC-Arrowind 850mAh-7.4V-20C

We'll offer a complete package to our customer.

After 30sec motor run it's almost out of sight (OOS)

Model flies like a big hand launch glider.Very docile,quick to respond and very good penetration for such a low wing loading.

It's already a proven winner..!!...Continue Reading
