Flew my new Multiplex Gemini for the first time this week
Just built it, but I've flown it a good dozen times already! Flies great.
Very fun little sport aerobat. Not really designed for 3D (controls surfaces are too small). It does have a good sized rudder so it does very nice knife edge passes, wing-overs, hammer-heads, .etc. A very well mannered and easy flier.
2x 9gr blue servos for elevator, rudder
2x HS-55 servos for ailerons
CC Thunderbird 54 ESC (overkill, but what I had on hand)
HobbyKing Turnigy 3542 1000kv motor
3S 2200mAH lipo packs (Turnigy, Zippy)
11x7 wood prop from HobbyKing
2lbs 2oz. (34oz, 963g)
Pulls 35A full throttle static (400+ watts, so very close to 200W/lb).
I fly mostly 60% throttle, 100% throttle for extreme climbs. will cruise on 30% throttle. Shoots straight up on full throttle as high as I'm willing to push it.
Balances at ~75mm as per instructions. Seems a tad nose heavy, since I have to have a bit more down elevator input for inverted than I would like ideally. Very stable in stall conditions.
