Aloha my brudda! Howz it? Nice to hear from you, Hows the building room coming along? Have you been working on the O3, or just out sun tanning??
* The Vixen is just a flash in the pan... That carbon fiber molded thing is just a fad, it'll pass and they'll all come back to reallity....Balsa is where it's at! I thought maybe everyone was over at Stratigio's Mirage build thread checkin out his new fuselage? He's even got picture's of it and everything... that thing is

My life too has stalled this past couple weeks. 2 steps forward, 1 back, then 1 forward, 2 back. Sometimes life sucks. Hopefully s-o-o-n for the O3.

Composites, a flash in the pan - lol. Look at that Dream Liner 787.

Awaiting some Ba-Bling. Let the resin flow.

I think it is all over kill, but I haven't seen the plane in person.
Have you projected what it will weigh and what amount of nose weight if any will be required??
In other words, do you have a projected RTF weight?

R,
Target
that's the second time you mentioned that.

I don't know what the AUW will be cuz it's a proto-type? As the air frame sits right now it's 1350 grams, still needs over kill covering, servos, wiring, battery, receiver, and (hopefully) a minimum of nose weight, I'd like to think high 70 ounce range?
The spread tow is definitely not necessary, but it is the flagship for this model and a little extra bling will not hurt. I'll be making a few minor changes on the next go around. If it ends up being kitted, the builders can cover it any way they choose, but this one is mine

A raffle on the weight. Closest, without going over wins the grand prize.

Target, I am thinking of going with a hyperion 1450 mah battery, but I don't have one in stock. Do you have the length and weight of one? I know that the 1100 is 63 grams and about 2.6 '' but wondering if a 1450m will fit...I put a 4 cell nicad up front (125 g) to check balance and it's real close, no servos though, that would add appr. another 40 g so. I think its "right there"

* edit, just found the info; 83 g and 3.3 inches, I've only got 3'' to the first former. Possibly another small change that I was talking about.. I'd sure rather have battery than lead.

Hey IHAVA, is this the one you need info on? http://media.hyperion.hk/dn/fg3radio/

I hate it when that happens..., just as I post what I think will be the answer, well, you beat me to it! No worries, all good, and I hope that you found the info you need.

Cheers,

Rob

Hyperion Life packs come in other than flat packs. They have a 1700 pack that is the same size as a AA square pack.
