Sharing pics of my first wing,(Overlord)
Been building on it for a month or so.Got most of my build info from the Unicorn website. Much more detailed than what comes with the Overlord.
Flew it for the first time yeterday. Nice a calm weather. After a few test glides I hit the throttle and a we went! Flew great but seemed a little underpower,even with the Zagi timed and balanced 400 brushed motor.
Using Maxamps 1800mah 4/5A packs. I have a few cycles on them. Hope to get more out of them after a couple of cycles.
Balanced at about 7-3/4" for now. Will be moving back towards 8" next time I take here out.AUW is 27-3/4oz at this point. Carrying 35 cents on each wing tip to balance at 8" for next flights. I built her strong (heavy) since it was my first wing. Been flying glider for years. Wings are a whole different ball game! But what a lot of fun!!
Lemme know what you think of my build.

Build looks great Nak.
The Overlord was my first wing but with last years white EPP. Great first wing and yes, I got bored after a few flights with the speed 400. Did the clasic brushless swapout: Mega 16/15/4 and a CC25. Here are some pics of my build.
You will enjoy it, I'm sure. Good times with that one and I still use it as a trainer and powered slope glider (with the old 400 motor).

Thanks Dave. I saw these threads and all the others when I was searching for build tips. You guys sure helped a lot. When you changed motors did it upset your CG alot?

Zero CG change. Those Mega 16/15/4's are almost the exact same weight.
I liked it closer the 7 1/2 to 7 3/4 inches from nose for my CG.
Glad they helped...
