3 ch- 5.5 inch span Cartoon Scale DR-1 triplane!
The is my new 3 channel version of Gordon's great cartoon scale triplane design with my graphics. The model features a powerful 2 magnet single phase motor that Dan Baird (Shagrug) made for me, a Rabbit receiver from Nick Leichty, and two 100 mg actuators that Robert Guillot sent me. I guess you could say it is a model built from parts from my friends!
The model weighs only 2.9 grams RTF with a 20 mAh cell. It will also fly with a 10, but I am getting great performance and real slow indoor flying with the 20 cell. Come see it fly at NEAT!

Yet another reason to be upset about not making it to NEAT (again)!
Great craftsmanship as usual Joe, nice work

Fantastic model (as usual!) and great room flying..
I am planning to build a model around that size and weight - although I am afraid I won't be able to build it that light.. I am now studying the actuators to use: could you please be so kind to give some more info about the actuators and about how you made the hinges for the tailplans? If I am not trying to steal your and Guillot's secrets, of course..
Hope to see more and more small & slow actuators models like this here on RCG!
