Because the Big'n was so very good , but large, I decided to go down a size and make another for the popular Blue Wonder type of motor..

This version was scaled to give 3.87 sqft and the panel size is 21"x10.5" .. Again its a KFm4 but this is all from 3mm depron

It has just been completed but is unflown at the moment.

Specs on this are AUW 10.75oz .. wing loading 2.77 ozsqft floaty.. BW type motor .. 3 cell 500 lipo .. 8x4GW prop.. 3x5gm servos .. 18A ESC .. Hitec REC..
There is more than enough thrust to go vertical

EDIT the power is upped by swapping out the Blue Wonder for an AXI..

This size and shape has turned out to be by far the best, and is the one to make..

..the big one is too docile , the 21" size is perfect.. the smaller one tried next was too light and got hit by the winds

Also note the 3mm build came in at 4oz less AUW than a similar 6mm build.. due to a combination of various factors all adding to the final weight..
Being lighter it flies solwer, and having been overpowered it is by far the most fun of all the builds....
