The micro avion i had flew fairly well... the 15" wingspan @ 31g RTF weight w/ 49 sq.in of wing area, it was very snappy at low speeds (this eventually caused the demise of the first one). I think if the models wing chord was enlarged 1/4 to 1/2" at both the root and tip and extended 1 1/2" it would fly much better.

My bipe currently is sitting at 43g w/ everything but the 2 aileron servo's, lipo, esc and motor. I believe its final weight should be about 80-83grams.
its wing loading will be less than .4oz per sq. inch..

I've got micro Avion #2 on the board now, which will use an AR6400L and 2 AS2000L's with SFG's and 1 1/2" more wingspan. I'll let ya know how that one flies. The owner of this one, doesn't want to go brushless so i've got to get it as light as possible for the stock sukhoi power system.

Did you get the plans for the Avion off of me? I love how everybody can get my plane flying bar me! I think it would have gone if i used the right battery though. Or could have used my P-51 guts if i had 2/3mm foam.

yea i got em off here, didn't know you were the originator of them..im working on the 2nd one right now. They both use 3mm depron for everything, except the aft fuselage spline which is 2mm.

My bipe is all 2mm depron and w/ the carbon bracing, is very stiff. I believe the avion made from 1 or 2mm depron w/ some carbon rod of plate spars, it could come out under 30g RTF.

Very nice, look forward to seeing it. And yes, i am the originator of the Micro Avion plans, there appears to be some larger sized ones floating around here as well.

Here is an odd one for you. AUW is 27g with the UM Su-26 motor and a 4.4x4 prop it almost hovers. I use a 150mah battery.

Got my batts, esc and motor in today.. all i'm lacking is 1 linear servo for the ailerons and my bipe will be done.. what i'm having a hard time deciding, is running 2 linear servos @ 3grams (85g RTF weight) or 1 6.6g servo (38g RTF weight)...

Do you need the torque of the 6.6?

i've got 4 big ole ailerons and 2 "hover" flaps to go with it.. so the extra torque wouldn't hurt.

I would just go with the 6.6g servo. I had power problems with my 1.7g AS2000L with my ailerons. BTW, WHERE ARE THE PLANS FOR THE 6TH VER.4 BIPE? Can I have a link please? I can't find them.

Yeah you need the torque there. Its no problem if you fly snail-slow but iy you have more speed you will fly the servo
