Large Flying Wing, the Mothership

My friend & I have been working on a project for the last few weeks to build the new electric version of the Epp mothership.

This was pic taken last night & with any luck, maiden tonite.

Take a look!

The motor is a magnetic mayhem running an 11/6 prop on a 3:1 gear reduction. 10 cell 1900scr pack with a 35A speed control.

(& yes the prop does look to be on backwards

It weighs 3 lbs 13 oz without battery (unofficial - we hand-balanced it on top of the scale). Prop is 12x6. Our backup prop is 11 x 5.5. Winglets are on, prop has been reversed. We ordered it May 2, received on May 7, completed June 2nd.

Maiden sometime this weekend!!

So you have the 83" wing? What motor are you using to power that beast? How about batteries? Lipoly I assume...

That is a "big-un"!.. Do the wings come apart?.. I just got another set of cores from CentexFlyer and I havnt decided what to do with them just yet.. Dunno if I wanna go for big power-big payload or just make it a floater to cruize around with a small camera or video system.....
