I wouldn't say that was too heavy at all. I'll be having 2 x 2200mah 4S zippy compact running in parallel, weighing a total of 420g. I'm hoping that having 2 LiPos I'll be able to position them independently to make the most of the available space whilst achieving correct CG.

I will line the floor with lite-ply and mount my equipment to that.

Boscam HD19 Explorer HD cam will be poking through the hole at the front and a WDR600 cam will be mounted to the top of the canopy on a pan servo.

plus some fpv gear, yeahh that can work!!!

just invest in some good long range system and you are set to break the record of farthest civilian RC control. i believe the lead acid is like 25amps with that you can go to another state and back lol


well enough joking, im really waiting for a good review cuz this looks like my next FPV plane

Should be OK. Motor and prop are the most important things to get right for endurance.

i suscribed this thread the moment i laid eyes in this beauty, cheap frame, massive lift (taking into acount its a wing and 1550 cm) if my bixler can handle all the FPV gear and still have enough power to fly well (everything stock except the usual mods)

this wing will float. the only problem for me is that i will have to invest in bigger batteries just to keep it balanced (and in reality this is exciting cuz it means wayyy more time in the air) My target is lot of lift and very efficient system (read low consumption) so i can fly for longer times.
as right now i do 15+ minutes with 2200mah and FPV gear in bixler 1
