Last fly with my EPP-FPV. This aircraft can really glide well even when she's heavily loaded. I like to climb high and come down without engine along reliefs.

Would I really need a 60A esc with this?? Looking for a motor combo as well here... Need a good motor/esc combo for cheap. As per usual. :P

The NTM 3536-1400kv seems to be a popular choice, with a 10x5 prop. 3S and a 60A ESC. With a 60A esc you can keep it inside the plane without it over heating.

Well, I'm retiring my EPP FPV for the new Penguin. It's been a pretty good plane however I am over the odd thrust angle and EPP getting fatigued.

The wiring looks good. However, if you are going to power the receiver with a BEC then you should only run the signal wire from the ESC, and don't connect the ground and power wires.

That was one heavy landing for sure .....

Here's a similar story ..... missing plane went down in trees surrounding our club field ..... I sent up my HK EPP FPV with a video camera and here's the story ....

What a nice story

How did they get it down? In the past I used a bow and arrow with string. What was the technique? Or did they climb the tree?

Poor guy was crying and over whelmed with joy...Good Job!

We picked the fittest guy and he climbed the tree, and everyone went home happy

You will be driving voltage from two sources and cause a ground loop. This can cause you all kinds of trouble.
