MSW, tough old thing 3rd rebuild

Here's my old Mini speed wing , I love this thing.
got her given to me by Scatcat1 a couple of years ago.
He built her stock and did the first redux.
Gave her to me and I've done the last 2!
Last one after I flew her into a football upright at
around 70 mph ! ouch!
I had to repair all the CF, put a new engine mount in,
new elevons and a quick recover , hehe , solar film on the top
and , ahem , elcheapo book covering type contact film on the bottom.
she runs a 3000 Kv blue wonder 18A esc apc 4.1 sq and zippy 1200 mah
3s. doppeler'd her at around 75 mph full tilt .
great fun little wing and very hardy!!
Ah well that's all

Great to see the old wing still flying! I have a few customers sill flying their original EPS Mini SpeedWings which are around 7 years old.

Guess you can't beat a good tough flying wing

My EP MiniSpeedWing is still around after I've had over 300 planes/Wings. It was my orginal Rc trainer. Its been repaired several times and now sports a carbonfiber leading edge and fiberglass batt area. The GWS 50 motor worked well, was replaced once and then after it got a bit heavier, it got a Johnson 250. Now it's a bit too fast, but keeps me on my toes!
