Cool
Firefox epo glider bash Video added

Not really a scratch build but this is where I hang out. I bought this glider out at our local Hobby Lobby with the plan to bash it. This is what I did. I used two 5 gram servos, the motor and battery out of an Eflite Beast, 10 amp plush speed control ( way overkill ) GWS 5*4.3 prop. I used blemderm for the hinges. This thing flies great we flew it today. It flew well in 5-10 mph winds most flying was done at 1/2 throttle. Video to follow.

And here's the video!

Here is the video of Aaron's Firefox EPO glider bash. It flew with authority in 10mph winds at half throttle. Got to get one of these.

Today I bought my Firefox glider to bash. This airplane is very cool. Should be an excellent candidate for streamer combat. This is a very durable airframe that just screams Bash Me!

Got my motor yesterday. I am using a 2500kv eflite motor & prop used in the C-Ray and a couple of 5g HK servos. Need to get a smaller brushless esc. I will be using a 2 cell 320 mAh lipo.
