F-27C Stryker - Beyond the Parkflyer

That's right. In parallell. Motor is a 1500kv, and the prop is a 7x5E. Max speed (OSD GPS) is about 135kph at 28A, but it cruises at about 75-80kph on only 7-8A, which gives a flight time (theoretical) of almost 30 minutes from the 2x 3S2200 config.

Bottom of the fuselage is glassed to compensate for all the digging, and there's a 4mm CF rod from tail to nose. The two fwd pieces of the stock canopy is glued together and hinged in front for easy access to the battery bay. AUW is about 1080 grams.

glassing the bottom only is one way to keep her straight and light !
Perfect for long skid landings too

If I ever decide to move, I am going to buy a house in Norway !
Awesome flying spots, cool mountain views, and from what I hear (the only bad news), farmers are selling left and right to the petroleum industry ................. last visit by my MIL, and she said the "whole Country changed" due to the profit driven discovery of large natural resources (oil).

Please say it aint so ............... in a few years, I wont be able to afford anything but an ice patch from the North Pole ......

You should come, Mopar! Normal life is not affected by the recent oil&gaz bonanza, except for some occasional Klondyke situations when the gas companies open new shore bases. Engineering industry has been blooming for several decades, and the most noticeable effect for the rest of us is the absence of the recession....

F-27C Stryker - Beyond the Parkflyer

Some FPV, how a crash caused by a stripped servo looks like from the plane......, and the benefits of a glassed fuselage - a happy ending

A 20 min fix and it was ready for the next flight...

Got my beat to hell and back striped f-27c back in the air with coroplast fins anchored with hot glue. Had been tail heavy, tore out a bulkhead in the battery bay to allow the lipo to move forward a bit and it balanced nicely. Will smooth out some damage in there with gorilla glue and small balsa floor for the lipo.

Now my buddy who helped me dial it in notices the prop is not spinning true. Take off the collet and give a little throttle and you can see the shaft is bent. Bone stock power system.

Any tips on replacing the shaft? Or cheaply replacing the motor? I'm not looking for too much screamer on this airframe, it's been broken in multiple chunks many times.

Though I might get another spare fuse at some point and look into putting some scorpion 450 heli motors I have into play. May have to pick up that expensive motor mount in that case though, and part of this plane's charm is it's been easy on budget. Think I'm $27 in so far between initial acquisition and a servo replacement.
