On The Bench

Hey Guys.

I Thought I would start a thread for------- What"s on your bench.

I started a Great Planes Spirit glider. From one of Dave Browns short kits.

Pics to follow.

A phoenix2000 glider that regardless of speedy or motor I can't seem to get it to run like it used too!

3 different ESC's and 3 brand new motors and it still stutters and gets too hot to touch!

I might cut the nose off and put something rediculously fast on it! 3536 1400kv maybe? Or a 3536 910kv??

I am stoked at the response to this thread.


Laurie gave me this kit at Manilla. A Dave Brown short kit for a Great Planes Spirit.

The guys at the local club are running a 2 metre electric glider social comp so it was a good excuse to build it with an outrunner on the front. Making provision to be able to bolt on a nose for soaring. .

I didn't have a plan.

Dave emailed the file to me but Geoff Potter was coming up to Wyong and brought one with him. He was launching his Spirit off the winch a and wrecked it. I inherited the bits. The only thing I could salvage was the tailplane, which I stripped , checked and re covered with Polyspan.

Here is where I am at...
