A new addition to my flock, is a little 1M wingspan Jynx.
A.U.W is 194b.This is a little heavy for a small `foam` sloper, but this may be O.K. in stronger winds.Very cheap to build and extremely easy.Depron is the material used and a small 2cell 500ma battery with a volt reg chip.
Still need to maiden her . Hope the name doesn`t describe the 1st flight.

Well this is MIG no.3
Servos and pushrods are in and tested. Weight so far is 790g.
Just the nose , flight battery and receiver to go. All-up weight should be between 1000g-1200g.

This is a home made plane made from corrugated plastic.
Most guys fly from the slope with no motor.
I installed a motor for park flying and sloping.
She flies superbly and has no UGLY tendencies.
This plane is also cheap and easy to build.
Plans are courtesy of Dave West.
The motor is a Turnigy 35-48-A 1100kv
E.S.C. is 60 A Turnigy
Battery is a 3-cell 2200 {4 cell can give more power}
Prop is a 12x6 electric
This plane is very heavy [1.8kg AUW] so you could size down the motor if necessary. She flew absolutely perfectly and rock steady even in a stiff breeze.
