Prior to covering, go ahead and mark and cut your fin slots.

I have obtained a 90 EDF motor, 6S Lipo, and 80amp ESC. I'm gonna see if I can make this Angel pop!

These are two videos shot at the same time of the sport version using a 2820-50 on our prototype. http://www.youtube.com/user/teamstevensusa

Whatcha think?

Awesome!

Great job! What sort of thrust to weight ratio do you get on 3s and 4s? In other words, how's the straight-up vertical performance on the setups you've tried? Were these setups with the Grayson motor? A couple of kits are going to be headed my way, but not 'till the chickens are thriving and the veggie beds planted. This Angel is testing my self-control, alright. Well, yes, Lucifer...

1. I don't have anything to measure Thrust to wieght ratios.

2. We've tried a few combos, and each of us like something different, but all of them climb str8 up.

3. Yes, we've used combos from Grayson Hobbies. They have a 2820-05 1250kv motor that is what we recommend as a good overall sport combo. That motor with a 60amp esc can run iether 3S or 4S with a simple matter of a prop and battery change. They also have a Monster Jet 2200kv motor that works well on 4S with a 70 amp ESC.

SCREW - So, have you decided to market this plane? Any idea of a price range (for just supplies to build the plane / no covering)?
I think it flew very well and ate-up alot of sky!! If it's priced right I might be interested.

Keep up the good work!!

I'm kinda marketing it here and on RCU a little. The response has been great and I've sold a few. Thanks everyone.

We are just a 3 man show working out of a small shop. We are still working on a set of instructions, but if you can follow this build thread, I've got kits ready to ship for $79 plus shipping.

The kits come with all laser cut ply, all balsa, carbon, and hardware needed to complete. It even comes with 2 Team Stevens logos

Send me a PM if you are interested.
