My RC guy

I built one late last fall - re-designed to be a bit different - 40" long, a little wider & deeper to accomadate an 8" prop, moved the feet inside - into the airstream - it flew great - can't wait to show it off this summer.
I have the design in AutoCAD layers include 16.5", 24", 32", 40 " 48" & 60". - the 40" is most complete. After building, I had to make his neck 1" longer to get the CG correct. (with the 1300 mah 3 cell lipo is in his head). Motor is AXI 2212/20, 8-5 3 blade prop, 30 amp Thunder Tiger ESC, 4 HXT900 servos, FrSky Rx, all controlled with a Futaba 2.4 7C Tx. The set up is "elevons" with the hand & foot servos from each side 'y' ed together.
