Pilot RC Decathlon 30% 122` Build

Hi Guys,

Here is a very cool plane that my buddy built with my help and I think its going to be a real power house - Should hover nicely when I maiden her in a few weeks for him.

Set up is: Pilot RC Decathlon 30% ( 50-60cc gas )
Motor - Rimfire 65cc Brushless
Castle Creation 160 ESC
Savox servox - run directly off a 2s 7.4v Lipo
No B.E.C needed.

More to come in a few week when its finished.

Great looking plane.
What batteries to drive it?
Do you have an estimate for the final weight?

Not sure a plane like that will do 3D. The control surfaces may not be enough even if you have sufficient power to hover. I'll watch to see your report. Beautiful plane!

Well, it should hover and torque roll just fine. The prototype on a da 50 has no problems doing this and we have more power so the numbers suggest so however this is not build for 3d more just a loverly gentle aerobat and a glider tug too !
Running 12s 5000 40c packs on 24x12 prop

Cheers

That looks great! I'm looking at maybe getting one of these. Can't wait to see your flight report on the electric setup. I'd probably go gas though.

It sure makes a fantastic electric but this one is completly over powered -a Rimfire 50 would still be a very good set up. This should be crazy fun.
