A week ago I finally finished my mini viper.

Specs:
AUW: 5.5oz/156g with battery
Motor: Brushless outrunner 1818 3800kv
ESC: Turnigy Plush 12A
Prop: 3x2 GWS
Lipo: SLS eco500Mah 25-50c
Receiver: OrangeRx R410 4ch 2.4Ghz
servo’s: Zebra ZS-F100 (same as HS-55) on aileron and Blue Arrow D05010MG digital metal gear micro servo on elevator
Power: WOT 6.9A, 8.6oz/245gram thrust
I also mounted some LEDs on the plane and made some air intakes.

The plane is a bit on the heavy side but it flies excelent.
Throwing the plane is a bit tricky but that is because of the weight I think.

Some pics:

Time to revive this thread! Building my second mini viper! My previous one was taken out by a parkzone trojan midair! Going with tailerons only on this build. Trying some new tricks with this one.

Tailerons did not work well at all. Started to add ailerons but haven't finished.

A couple 2.5g servos from Hobbyking, FRsky FASST compat. micro receiver and a Mystery 15A ESC completed the build. AUW is exactly 100g with 300mAh 2S. Flies well!
