42" KESL scratchbuild
Thanksgiving turned out to be a great day to fly some wings. A little bit of breeze kept the Champ indoors. But not the KESL.
I've been flying it for months and still enjoy bringing it out on days that my small planes would be blown around.
Heres a flight video.
It doesn't have a super powerful motor on it (I wanted about 800g of thrust) but it's still around 1:1 thrust/weight ratio. Not a speed demon at all. I fly on low rates most of the time and in this video. I have my low rates set for 60% aileron and 60% elevator for low and 100% for high. When I want to do some tight turns I switch to high rates for a little while and then go back to relaxed flight on low.
