For my second balsa build I chose the relatively straight forward Little Stick. Motor is a Hyperion HP-Z3007-26, powered by a 2500mah 3 cell lipo and 30 amp ESC. Does a nice rise off ground and has proven to be very aerobatic. Comes in pretty hot, but I am getting better at nailing the landings and it sure is a tough design so can take a bit of rough handling. Final touches will be a pilot and machine gun stapped on by the rubber bands securing the wing.

This is a scalish model of a Beagle Pup that was originally flown as a gas powered control line model. I have just finished an electric R/C conversion and she flys superbly. Motor is a Hyperion HP-Z3007-26, powered by a 1750mah 3 cell lipo and 30 amp ESC. Does a nice rise off ground and is way overpowered so flies for about 20 mins with a bit of throttle management.Very sedate flyer, but certainly has a turn of speed with this set up and looks very scale on fly bys. The Pup was used by the RAF as a trainer for awhile and the colour scheme of this model is based on a civil registered one still flying in NZ.
