FT Bloody Baron

My FT Bloody Baron Maiden Flight. Built from the plans with a couple modifications. I did not use a power pod. I just estimated the motor thrust angle and mounted the motor to my best guess of an angle.

The trailing edge of the ailerons are simply straight cut. I moved the elevator servo a little further back.

My setup is a 2212 (2830?) 1400kv outrunner, 8x45 Gemfan multirotor prop, 20 amp ESC, 2200mah 3S Lipo, LemonRX 7-ch stabilizer receiver. The aileron servo is from Hobbyking, the elevator servo is a generic tower 9g servo from eBay.

Looks like it flies nice! The Bloody Baron is one of my favorite designs now - it flies great with a wide range of batteries and has a very wide flight envelope.

On mine, I find you need to kick in a decent amount of rudder on turns, which is the closest thing to a bad tendency it has. The undercamber on the wing edges seems to keep it from tip stalling.

Definitely a great design, and your build looks and flies great!

My plane doesn't have a rudder at all. I just have to bank it over more with a fair amount of speed to get it to turn quickly. It doesn't like to turn slowly and definitely not slowly downwind!

The FT Bloody Baron flies fantastic!

Flite Test Bloody Baron Maiden Flight (3 min 5 sec)


Emax 2812 1534kv
25 amp Tunigy Plush
8x4.5 slowfly
3s 1300 mah
9 gram servos

I traced a speed build kit onto Ross foamboard. Spray painted straight on foam.

Flew awesome! Needed a little up elevator to fly level. Love the battery inside the pod too.

The landing came in fast as it glides nice and I almost caught it solidly but dropped it as I was trying not to damage it from a hard catch.

Also flew second flight with 1000mah 3s and balanced fine.

About 9-10 min flight times until LVC with mixed flying
