Transall C-160 build log

Spent the past week wringing out the Twinstar 2 hybrid (with Transall C-160 stock wing) and its a winner. Changed out the 9" 3 blades for 8" 3 blades instead for better ground clearance. G10 motors are overkill, changed out to Turnigy D3630/14's instead, much lighter. Rigid wing makes for a great acrobatics. Really crisp handling. 3 1/2 lbs all up weight and 6 lbs thrust with a 4 cell battery (5 lbs with 3 cell). Unlimited vertical/hover etc.

Installing the Rangelink UHF system I had on the original Twinstar. 5.8 video for now, 1.3 later. Test flight this weekend.
