I'm looking for feedback of any kind on the Ka8-b that Esprit is selling.
I don't think I could bring myself to electrify this beautiful glider so I would be using it on the slope.
TIA for any thoughts.
Darn right, no electrification on a vintage glider! I would search the rest of the forum to see if anyone has any idea. Good luck, and post how it turns out! Keep 'em flying, Joser
Anyone got any update :popcorn: ?
Oh well, I've ordered one (in Europe), I'll do a bit of a report? Or not...
I will probably not use spoilers, but instead modify the wings to have flaps + maybe larger ailerons. I know that isn't pure scale, but I am too much into low-'n-slow aerobatics to bother about that... Stand-off scale looks is all I want.
Hi I've finished mine a few weeks ago. Not maiden yet.
It`s a product of ggod quality. I`ve used the motor suggested in the instructions. The nose is fiberglass and the motor have an extended shaft.
For balancing I've used a 4500-3S lipo and a bit of lead in the nose.
The electric airbrakes are fantastic. I have to recut the "top" of the brakes because some times get a bit jammed.
The included pilot is junk. The plastic cover of the wing is very fragile as the servo covers. The paint chips away of the plastic parts.
Probably I`ll maiden this weekend.
