GLOW/GAS .25 wing (80mph)
If you've flown zagi's for combat, and you want more power, speed, climb, and durability, here is a wing capable...but the only draw back is it being glow. With a .25 motor, it's capable of flying in excess of 80mph. The wing is made of EPP. The motor is mounted with nylon bolts which will break, and eject the motor should you have a run in with the ground, a fence, a parked car, or anything in its way. This plane is as durable as a ZAGI 3C and will allow you to do low aerobatics without the penalty of destroying your plane like other balsa planes.
I bought a few extra kits, but never needed to build anymore. This is the end all for anyone wanting to learn how to fly low and perform tricks.
The TufFlight Predator design was inspired by the great flying wings flown in open R/C combat over the past decade. With minimal parts count and many pre-shaped mating surfaces, this kit is ready for covering after one evening.
Very lightly loaded, the Predator will turn or loop in less than 30 feet at full throttle. Low drag design allows fast speeds, and good glide for landing with power off. Compact size and no field assembly means you'll go from the car to the air in minutes.
Items included in kit:
· durable foam wing cores
· wing/engine mount internal bracing
· balsa elevons
· durable engine mount
· corplast fin/handle
· illustrated 28 page instruction manual
Items needed to complete:
· .25 -.28size engine
· Elevon mix capable TX and 3+ channel RX -- (throttle, elevons), or 4th servo and "Y" harness for dual ailerons
· aileron extension (used as switch/charging)
· battery: 270-600 mAH
· 3 servos: standard, mini, or micro servos OK, but metal gears recommended in smaller servos
· 2 rolls UltraCote covering (UltraCote is superior to all other coverings for durability and repairability)
· 4-6 oz. fuel tank
· fuel tubing
· control horns
· push rods
· engine mounting hardware
· 3M-77 Spray adhesive
· Goop brand adhesive
. masking tape
· Wingspan: 48"
· Weight: 2.5 - 3.0 lbs
· Rec Engine: .20 - .28
· Radio: 3 channels
· Wing Area: 600 sq in
Attached is what the completed predator looks like. If you fly zagi and want more, this is it.
I'm asking $25.00 plus 7.00 for shipping.
