FPV49 builders thread

Recently there seems to be more and more hype about the Fpv 49. For those of you who are not familiar with it, It is an FPV platform created by a Norwegian RC enthusiast. A wealth of information can be found here on his YouTube page

http://www.youtube.com/user/FPVTrond
or here on his forum (google translator required)

http://fpv.no/vbulletin/showthread.p...V-KFm-Airfoil?
I am building one of my own and wanted to possibly create an english thread dedicated to builders and flyers of this design. It would be nice to get pics,feedback, tips, ect from others that have been as captured by his videos as I have. If there has already been a thread started on this wing I apologise, I couldnt find one.

Heres my version in the making.....

Turnigy 3542
Trust 55 amp esc
2 x 2650 lipos
boscam HD19 cam

All credit for this design goes to FPVTrond....

Wingspan is?
Lipo required for sport and FPV?
Servo size (weight or thrust)?

(The devil is ALWAYS in the details).

I believe it's 49", 2650x2 3s for FPV, I would think 9-12g MG servos would suffice (TowerPro MG90S or similar).

If it has been designed for FPV, then it assumes you'll have lots of battery, a flight camera and an HD recording camera up front. If you want to use it for 'sport' (I assume you mean LOS?) then you'll have to experiment with component placement to achieve proper CG. Also a smaller motor for LOS duty would help keep the weight forward.

Hello! I am very disappointed with the name of "your" wings. This does not FPV 49, no, it's Kesl 32!
Type in the search Kesl 32 and you will understand what the conversation.
Or, the original title will Swift.
Yet, thank you very much for the scaled Kesl! Just at this scale, and I want it to do.
Sincerely, Victor.
With the warmth of Russia. And sorry for the English.

Hello guys, thanks for the comments! I'll post more detailed pics soon and will also list my components.

I'm sorry freeman007 (Victor) but this was modelled directly from the fpv 49 plans listed on FPVTronds videos. I have modified his design only slightly to allow for hiding the electronics and my own wingtip design.

Would love to hear from other builders!

Looks very nice. If you find the prop to be noisy, you might be able to quiet it down by cutting a notch of foam out in front of the prop tips. But it looks too nice to cut into right now. Wait until after the first crash

Here's the link to the Norwegian build thread. You will find extensive information, videos and a printable plan there for the original version 3.

I'm not sure thats an FPV 49 but it does look very nice. The FPV 49 is a KFM wing, (Layered foam design)
