You Tube scratch built wing

I built this 30 inch wing from the instructions on you tube. It is a easy build and a great flying little wing. I used a hand wound 1900kv CDR motor I had in a drawer,and some 1300 Mah 3s battery's. I'll post a video of it's maiden flight later this evening.

Looks like you got that one pretty much dialed in. I had one similar running a 3s1300 battery and a slightly larger emax 2812 I think a 36 gram motor. I doinked it in and broke it though it was sweet and superfun for a weekend. I sure like your flying spot. If I had that my wing might very well be alive today!

Maybe you can tell me if I can use a 3 cell battery with a blue wonder 1700 stock motor. I thought it was recommended for a 2 cell which I don't have anymore. I have 4 good 1300 batts though I should build another smaller wing with it will I burn it up with a 3 cell?

I run my 1700kv BWs on 3s all the time with 6x4.5x3 props and they never even get warm.

Yes you can! Just be sure to "prop it down" and check it with a watt meter,to make sure your in the right propeller range! I have never tried it with a 2 cell pack,since the C/G is setup with the 3 cell1300 battery. The motor I'm using is a custom wound 1900 kv motor with a 6 x 4 prop. I might try a 7 x 4.3 prop I have also?

Do you feel the 3 blade prop gives you any more performance over a 2 blade prop? I've not ran many 3 blade props? RD

I finally go a calmer day to fly the wing,and really got it "dialed" in now! It fly's like it's on rails. You can make knee high low passes without even giving it a second thought,plus it fly's inverted with very little forward stick pressure. Now I just need a Hotter motor!
