Advice/recommendation for FFF/elevon plane for first-time builder
I finally scored a bundle of the Bluecor FFF this weekend and I'm looking for suggestions on what plane to build as my first.
Things I'm wanting:
I'm thinking that an elevon type plane would be good as I don't have 4 servos (yet) for a full-blown design. It would also make construction easier I think. I would really like to avoid just a rudder/elevator setup as I'd like to be able to do some rolls/etc.
Strongly prefer something that can be used in a suburban backyard (meaning it's not that large )
Must use my existing Futaba 3108 tiny servos and R156F micro recvr.
Must use one of the Lipo packs I just bought (2-cell 640mah and 3-cell 640mah Kokams both with 15C discharge capability).
I just finished winding a Komodo 278 motor (probably comparible to a single-stator GBx) which I'd like to use, but I also have a couple GBvs in the mail.
Would prefer a "plane" looking design (jet, sport, whatever) as I've got a Unicorn to satisfy my delta-wing desires right now (thus, I'd not be interested in the Jerbear's wing, for example, at this time.)
Easy/fast to cut and assemble with PU glue, tape, etc. - I wanna see what all this FFF/DPF excitement is about
Hopefully, that's not such a restrictive list that I cannot get anything to match it. I've looked through the sticky thread of plans, but I'd appreciate input in helping me match my wishlist with a good design suitable for a first-time builder.
