Maidened at last.

the weather was rubbish, drizzly, misty and very damp.

But the Kappa 35 was not a disappointment, even in these conditions it floated around with a very low sink rate. it seems to have a good speed range and the flaps very effective with a good climb rate under power, getting to 150 meters in less than 20 seconds.

need to sort out some minor trim settings in the different flight modes but could not be happier.

my build


I didn't use the ply for servomount in de fuse. In the pictures my build with the abillity to add 260 gr ballast.

Pretty standard. Motor is a Mega 16/25/4CE, hyper spinner with Ae 10*7 and a thin esc. Battery is SLS 1000 with 19 mm. So it is possible to place the battery and esc behind the motor where the fuse is 38mm thick. Ad canopy it is smaller!
The servoplate is demountable with 4 screws in case you have to service motor or esc (antenna's in silicone fixed with hotglue)

Flying weight 1330 gr, carbon D-box.
Not much flown yet. But already placed the cg further back now on 98 mm.

Structure is strong enough to carry more weight. Surprised by its abillity to make distance.
Not happy with the weight of the (small) stab with 51 gr and the small rudder.

Hope it gives you some ideas.
