Some of the earlier non-hd keycam's suffered from the black sun. The hd #11 and later #16 don't have this problem and provide very good images considering their price and weight.
There is a huge RC Groups thread on the #16 version

and a dedicted site to all versions http://www.chucklohr.com/808/index.shtml

I'm a bit late starting a build on this one but i'm somewhat new to this hobby did read the compleet post about the Wot and did get me some 6mm depron its kind of hard to get in the Netherlands. Did all the cutting nothing hard to it but i'm left with a question
I'm using this setup:
motor: C2822 1400KV
esc: 20A
servo's: TowerPro SG-90
Prop: 8 x 4 - 9 x 5
Lipo: 3 cel 1300 C30
Lipo:3 cel 1000 10C
The esc should be fine its adviced by the company that build the motor to use a 15 A

Will it fly with this setup its my second attempt do build a plane the first was the Polaris wich I never got to fly...oke for about 4 meters befor its crashed up side down and destroyed the plane and the motor. Sorry if my English is not perfect.

Second question I see picures of the plane where there is used some kind of film on depron to get some color to the plane What do you use??
I did try paint on some left over foam but it eats the foam only other paint I have is not water resistend

Hi Brokkenmaker and welcome to RC Groups. I think you will far more success with this model compared with the Polaris. Your power set up and servos will work ok.
The coloured film is self adhesive packing tape. I buy mine from Staples, ordering online for delivery to local store. They sell a mixed pack (Red,Orange,Blue,White,Green & Yellow) and you could try their NL store. I have also bought on ebay http://www.ebay.nl/sch/i.html?_nkw=b....c0.m270.l1313
You can come up with some impressive schemes with a little practice

Andy

Hi brokkenmaker,

I'm also building the WOT NEXT, so there are at least two of them in the Netherlands. Hobbyking is also selling the colored tape from the NL warehouse, cheap and fast.

If you want to use paint on depron then you should use acryl paint you can buy this cheap at the Hema, Action or Xenos. (Dutch stores). Do you have already some pictures I will also upload some pictures this week.

Hahha nice to see more people here intrested in my build well it will take some time to finish the build due to lack of free time I hoop to do some buiding second half of this week again. And i'm waiting for some of the electric parts to arrive ( servo's the one I have at home will not work, this are ultra light ones )
Hoop to finish the compleet model next weekend the weather forcast for this part of the world doesn't look like flying weather for some time so no hurry
Again thanks for the good words and advice

Well come to rc world, first of all Polaris is not easy to build as a first plane anyway, Wot-Next simple to build comparing to. My question is this going to be your first plane to fly?

The polaris turned out verry nice as a build but flying was somthing else. The polaris ( second build ) is still here compeet with setup but after the try's with the first one I think its to hard to fly . No its not my first flying plane I have a EZ Hawk from Dynam but that plane fly's almost by it self. And the reason for building is just I like to fly a plane I build my self and the building is so much fun.
It must be a lot of fun to say : See that plane flying?? I build it myself
So for now is stick to the Wot and will try to get it flying. And a crash..... wel as long as the electrics don't damage its still a cheap hobby one sheet of depron is only 4 euro's and where do you get so much exitement for so few euo's

You are 100% correct regarding scratch built versus ARTF/RTF. Whilst I can't hope to replicate the finish of mass produced models there is something deeply satisfying about taking a sheet of foam and turning into a flying plane. It's even better when you design your own model and other people build and fly it
You will find yourself looking at everyday items at home or in shops to see if they could be used in an RC application. Welcome to the addiction
