I have just finished mine, test flight next week i hope.
Mine have a 3S/1000mha, flyware rex220 motor, graupner 5.5*4.3
With the 1000mha pack i had to put the motor more forward to have the corect center of gravity.

First flight

Firsts flights 2 days ago!

No problem it flies very good. I think it's a good first pusher, very fast to build!

If i build a new one i would desing it with a narower fuselage.

First pass at a tiled version. Should be about a 520mm wingspan.
The resolution isn't the best. The original was quite small.

What material are you using in the construction? I didn't download the plans yet, so that would probably answer my question if I weren't being lazy.

hi there,

i've tried this pusher jet.
because it's nice looking, easy, to built and small
btw, it's my first depron-jet i have built and i'm not very prooved in building with this material, but it seems to be an easy way to get a new model

ok
it's cold outside windy and snowing, but i've seen no reason to do no maiden.
...
hmya....it should have been better to choose an other day i gues.


i am using the GWS 2050, powered by 960 mah 11.1v 3s in combination with a 6"x4" prop ... maybe a little bit to rude for this model..

throwing the bird with half of possible of thrust, with a soft angle to the sky...
....the first *flight* took not more then 10 sec. untill it crashes because of turning around because of it's motor.
no chance to do something against it. *grumph

but no matter what happend, i will try it again.

greetings

stephan
