Flying Foam's Mothership EP
I received an 83" WS Mothership from Flying Foam on Saturday.
Here is a link to the kit:
I have built two wings from trick r/c
I have also built a homemade wing wire-cut from foam insulation board.
This kit leaves a few things to the builder. They don't have anything for a motor mount and there are no cut outs for batteries, ESC, rx, or servos. The motor mount maybe the most challenging to build. I plan to build this as a pusher design.
The motor will be a Turnigy G46
and a 60A ESC. I want to be able to fly both 4S and 5S so the battery compartment will have to allow for either.
I will start the build soon and plan to document it here. I would also like any collaboration from people here on RCG. I have searched some and I don't see a lot about this kit.
Any input would be helpful. My basic plan is to build it similar to a Zagi. I also have a Zijji I can use to model.
The first improvement will be to add a horizontal spar on the CG. The kit has four CF spars but it does not have a CG spar. Most of the assembly will be epoxy or 3M 77 glue. I am not sure about hinges. I normally use hinge tape on wings but these are a bit larger and I may use an alternate method.
The kit also uses coroplast winglets. I may change those to ply or poly before assembly.
I would like to hear from anyone with experience with this kit in a pusher configuration. Pictures/videos/links would be great.
