Hello,

Saturday I maiden the second Miniviper, innrunner Turnigy 1230 with 3.2 prop. The model is as fast as the other with Hacker engine , quieter and very stable. You just have to be careful to take off, pull far to the left until it has speed. Unfortunately, the third flight was inexplicably screwed and crashed to the ground .......receiver problems? Boh !!! Now I'm working with my brother to build a fiber fuselage to accommodate a 30 mm fan (starting from foam fuse), encouraged by the results of our friend in Germany.......

I used the electricians tape , works very well. But first you have to wash the fuselage and wings with alcohol, preferably isopropyl. Then I applied the black adesive oracover only to separate the two colors, but it was not necessary. The fan is Aeorc 30 mm with the 13000 kv motor for 2 lipo. The idea is to enlarge the back air vents, the air intake and practice an hole on the nose like that of the Tomahawk foam Viper 70 mm and then make a mold. My brother wants to do even the wing (removable) and elevator in composite .......he is the expert in fiber ..... we'll see what it is he combines !!

This little viper gave me the push to build my own version..Approx. 30 inches in lenth..cramming 750 watts in this little frame...Should be a bullet..
Just have to wait on some smallish 1250-1300 Mah batteries..

No, to the BEC. Red LED has 1.8 and green 3 Volts nominal voltage. Both in line is just right. Both together taking 26mA.
