RPG of 2010
This was a first for me; a pusher! Built from a plan in 2010.
Modified to have steering, and this metal-geared-servo also operates the rudder rather than having two servos.
Basic DC head controls rather than the mixing servo setup.
A steel wire undercarriage that is a bit different to the design on the plan.
To give a spring-type landing!
The most important part of the build was getting the engine prop at 90% to the stab and at 90% to the fin.
Some video taken at Winterton in 2010...
You notice the model has changed as it is build number 2!
I was using 35 Meg radio and that caused a fatal crash, so now I use 2.4 radio.
Recommend only 2.4 radio with a pusher design, as the motor is too close to any arial fitted
