SuperSloFly 28

Here is the build of the SuperSloFly 28 by Sloper Steve http://www.sdparkflyers.com/super.html

Not having 9mm EPP ,I have sandwiched two 6mm sheets for the three main parts with the 3mm cf rods inbetween.

This is a great looking plane and so far lots of fun to build.
This will be my first plane that actualy will fly and crash ,I hope.
Just need to get it finnished(time is always a problem)

Any way here is pics of my progress.

Here is some more progress.
Now done with the painting,not perfect,some overspray caused by spraying in light wind out side, but nevertheless it wil do for this build.
Time is a luxury around here and I want to maiden on the weekend.

Here is a little bit of progress.
All control surfaces hinged and 3 main parts clued together.
Now i can get a feel for what it is going to look like.
The air frame as is with out electronics and rods are 144g
Speed controller with motor and prop is 53g
I'll be using 9g servos but not yet sure what battery.
Motor is a Arrowind Black 1620kv I think with 8x4 prop
I'm not sure if i should go 2S or 3S
I'm aiming for a all up weight of 250g-260gwhich I hope is not
going to be to heavy.

Well I finnished the Build on the week end.
Final weight seems bit heavy at 366g
This is with 3S 800mha ,20A Ecs and 4x6g Blue Bird Servos.

Motor might be a tad weak,I have a bigger motor that I will use
if this one does not work.

Now I need to find out where the cg should be and try to fly it.
I'm still learning to fly so I'll just try to keep it in the air and land in one piece.
