Techone Star 3D Out Of The Package!

Looked through the manual and it looks like this should be a pretty rigid epp plane. It uses thicker carbon rods for the trussing then techone planes ive flown before and it also includes a aileron arm to to correct differential for the single aileron servo. Looks like it will be a fun little epp pattern plane that can 3d from the design. All the z-bends are pre done but you still have to cut a 45 degree bevel for the control surfaces. The nose looks very durable and uses four carbon strips to reinforce the motor mount area and are pre cut to length. All the carbon rods appear to be cut to length as well so it should go pretty quick when i have time to get it assembled. The wheel pants look nicer,they use thicker epp so they look fuller and should be pretty durable. Glued them up quick and the motor mount for later,using welders for the entire assembly,its a popular adhesive for many epp planes and ive been using it for about a month or so now and it works great on epp.. only downside is it takes a while to set up and you should let it set up over night to fully cure but its pretty rigid for bonding but can still flex a little during impacts without cracking like ca glues,i wont be using it for hinging though. The techone plastic hinges work very well and have basically zero resistance but they can be difficult to install using ca since it can seep into the hinge itself if you over do it on the glue.. the welders makes it easy to install the hinges though. Im gonna try and have it assembled before the weekend and get some flights in. Will probably maiden in the backyard but really want to get to the park or some where i can really open it up with the t-2006 and get it trimmed out and fly some long lines and big loops etc. Heres some pics for now.

Got started on it tonight,weighed everything to get an idea of how much the welders adds to the completed auw for the airframe. Usually i use a half bottle or less of the 10g size regular ca for a plane this size. Will add the carbon and glue the top of the fuse on tomorrow or later in the week. Should have some flying in with it by the weekend hopefully.

I was wondering when this plane was going to be available here. Maybe a replacement for my Piaget? Not that it's getting worn, but I'm in need of a change.

Finished the airframe the other night and put the power system and servos in today. One step not to overlook is the wing spar crosses past where the top half of the fuselage slot and tab join.. need to trim for the spar to fully seat the top half of the fuse or you could trim the tab.. i sliced a slot in the tab(see pics). Auw with 2 futaba 3114's,7g servo for rudder,spektrum ar 6110e,t2006 outrunner,10 amp esc and 500mah 2s 20c pack is 7.1oz. With tp 325mah 2s 45c pack the auw is 6.8,with a hk2403 and the tp 325 pack it should be about 6.2-6.5oz rtf and i'll try that outrunner at some point as well in the plane. The carbon rod trussing is all 1.3mm about 30% thicker than other techone kits use so it adds a slight amount of weight to the build but makes the plane noticeably more rigid. Should be able to get the plane under 6oz with a lighter power set up and leaving the sfg's and wheel pants off etc but 6.5-7oz seems to be a good weight for around here with the wind. I'll probably fly it over the weekend if the weather is decent out here.

Video At The Shop

Got one short flight outside in windy conditions so far with it. Flew it a few times inside and someone at the local shop wanted to see how it turned out so i brought it with when i went to pick up some things. Fly's well but i think i'll mount the pack on the upper vertical fuse for easier pack changes and better balance. Looking forward to flying it outside in warmer temps and less wind eventually,happy with it and its a bargain for the price including a nice outrunner and prop.

Ive just bought this kit in the UK.

Out of interest, which way round did you fit the aileron servo arm? Logic tells me the arm should have the extension arms pointing away from the ailerons not towards them.

Equal movement of ailerons.

Can you help?
