14.8gr RC-Glider with folding motor. With plans and Video

1.5mm Depron, 59cm wingspan, Microinvent reciever and Aktuators (2x), X-Twin Motor and 1S 50mAh Lipo.
It flys very slow.

Regards,
Reto

That's excellent, is there a spring loading (or other) to fold the motor back when it's not running? I'd like to see a vid if you can make one, it does look slow.

Very, very nice design (and small). Technically, you would not need a spring I think...

Lovely!

An elegant design and nicely executed Reto!
The transmitter should cover most requirements for this model?

That's smart, well done.
Also the plane construction is flawless, very clean.

Very nice design! It's great to see when somebody has unique and creative ideas, and can execute them so superbly.

I saw the video of it in the gym. It looks very nice. Do you think you will be able to get a video when the weather decides to cooperate?
