Hello all; showing you Danio, my scratch build
I am new here =)
well, not that new to RCgroups but lurking most of the time... = )
I just wish to show you the Danio, my scratch built electric of my own design
technically, I guess I posted in the wrong section since it was designed as a lightweight electric floater
I'm not an expert and a few helpful folks are helping me iron out the kinks (thank you Mr Curtis Suter / CloudyIFR and AMbeck)

well, heres the gear
I've not purchased any new items from anywhere, all of these are from my older planes which have crashed or died or sold ... =)
Tail: V tail config
Servo: 2x Tower Pro 9 gm
they are equal to hxt 900 or hitec hs55
ESC: 18A Hobbywing
equal to 18A turnigy (all from China anyway =p) (old stash)
10 x 6 Aeronaut Cam carbon (old stash)
35 mm aluminum spinner
2217 Turnigy 1050 kv (scavenged from my old stash)
2S 1000 mah Dualsky 25c
all up weight: about 605 grams
7.25 oz per sq ft OR
wing cube loading of 4.2 (darn, I was aiming for 4)
actually, if and lets say if you want to build your own,
I would have gone with the turnigy 2213 size and 3s 750s
more power for almost equal the weight!
but what the heck! I'm not buying any more new stuff =)

It's a bit hard to explain.
you know, we're used to the term, wing loading, however, wing loading is not a constant, it gets higher as the plane gets larger
with wing cube loading, it's a different way of calculating....
here you go, a link for your reading

Thanks for the link, I understand it now. It's a more advanced way of comparing wing loadings by trying to take size into account.
It's always good to learn something new.
