This is Kadetito history. Click on COMMENTS to read the entire history.

This is the equipment and specs:
  • Motor: KD A22-15M from HobbyCity (Kv = 1050RPM/V, 6A-16A, 20A peak (15sec))
  • ESC: 18-A OEM RC for brushless motors
  • Battery: TP 3S1P 2Ah Li-Po battery
  • Prop: APC 9x3.8
  • Servos: Hitec HS-55 for elevator and nose gear, and HXT900 for rudder
  • Receiver: Hitec, 8-channel standard 72-MHz receiver on channel 60.
  • Wingspan: 99cm
  • Length: 78.8 cm
  • Wing area: 0.1855 m^2
  • Wing loading: 4.1 kg/m^2
  • Mass: 760g. Yes, the airplane is quite heavy. I expected it to be 500g or so... Too beefy I guess. Too much spruce, 1/16" balsa covering on wings and fuselage sides, large battery, large receiver, thick pushrods, etc. Solid, but heavy.
  • Simple static propulsion test: about 15A, 160W, 8400 rpm.
