Video of Matt Fritz Depron Biplane...

Maybe Matt can provide mroe info on this plane than I can, but he built a Pattern biplane out of 6mm depron he hand carried back from europe.

It has a Hacker B20 15l 4:1 and 3s1p Thunder power 2100's.

This thing has plenty of power and I dont know if he ever hit full throttle.

Here is the vid:

Matt and Kirby, great video! Sorry I had to leave before I got some video Matt. My son's alergies started getting to him so we left sooner than I expected... Kirby, It was great meeting you and Mike out there. Let me know if you want those changes for the Edge. I'll make the changes and shoot you some modded plans...

Tim I'm planning on building and ultimate. Would sanyo 720s on a retimed 370 give me vertical for at least 5 minutes? Im tired of crappy lipolys. I hate charging em cause they scare the crap out of me. Whats the all up weight on your ultimate??

I have a 37" UB made from Tims Plans. Flys great on a Razor350 GWS D gear and 8 X 720 Maxells. 6 min hover 8 to 9 min flying time..

Thanks again and again TIM...

I also have the 3DX great fun.. I just switch motor and controller between the two. Takes all of about 2 min.

Only thing is it's impossible to get ahold of a razor these days. Razor needs to start turning these things out in the thousands!!!

Try the 650's from Park Flyer Motors
http://www.parkflyermotors.com/secur...asp?itemid=227

They are .5 oz more than the AAA's for an 8 cell pack, but also give up more amps..
