Just got back from flying the Extra, and alls good but could be better. I need to move the battery back a bit and get up above the wing as it took alot of elevator to hover.

Now the really impressive part. The 30" span 300 came in all up 4.8 oz. I'm running the 36T IPS BL in a GWS LPS 6-1 gearbox and a 8043 prop and its over powered big time. The motor combo only draws 2.8 amps so I'm using a 20C 300ma 3 cell.

I know its gonna be a great one once I get the balance, for and aft, top to bottom, right

Matthew,
Do you mean it would have a lot of coupling on knife edge ?
Would it want to roll out in the in the direction of knife edge ? How would you change the rudder if you were building it ?

Good knife edge is a must for me and it's nice to have very little coupling.....I would say none but all the aircraft I've owned , pattern and 3D had some sort of coupling. Beginning to think you can't get it all out.
Thanks

Ken

Went to a electric fun fly today and had a blast. Electric is big in so many ways now its hard to beleive. So many differant types of models. Lots of foamies, lots of 40 and 60 size conversions too. There was a slight breeze all day but a 4:30 the wind died out. So got to try out the 300 with the the relocated battery and alls I can say is what a plane. Now I did change the height and width of the rudder in construction and did add a little to the belly of the plane as well to the upper deck of the fuse. But this thing is great. Hovers easily, high alfa knife edges. what ever you ask it to do it does.

Thanks ewo

Soon as you guys resolve the "changes" , I'll build several to replace all our Ammo's here...

Funny thing .... as Nasty looking as the ammos became with balsa, epoxy , tape repairs , faded .... They still flew good (only heavier) and someone else was always willing to take it home with them....instead of the olde' Viking Funeral , of course

Someone interested in full fuse plans? I just build a 10" version for the x-twin electronics! I also have build a 10" and 22" full fuse Ultimate
I'm still learning to fly with my Slow Stick so the 22" Ultimate has to wait

Let me know what size you guys won't and i'l make some plans

The small ones are covered with printed tissue...

The 22" Ultimate is covered with printed A4-stickers... this gave a big weight increase but think motor is powerfull enough

Nitrostar,

Count me in for full fuse plans of either plane, hopefully in the 30 to 40 inch wingspan range.

I need an exact wingspan and what derpon would you guys think about: 3 or 6mm!

What about AoA, airfoil, dehidral? Think for the most it will be AoA=0°, airfoil=4/40 or flat, dehidral=0°...

When i know all these things i can start scaling the 10" drawing. The only thing you have to do is draw the ailerons because i don't know how great they must be, never flew with
