New Inspire 60 Acro is being built!

Surprisingly nice model, Inspire is probably one of the lightest 60 size pattern models I have ever seen. I prefer more European Models, but this one got me.

1) I did not like the supplied tail wheel, new DPM from Esprit.

2) I did not like the 2 screw canopy secure system, rubber band is simpler.

3) 3 holes in cowl, took me 10 minutes

4) I have decided to paint canopy.

More coming soon

I have this one on my list and should start building in a few weeks. ZB is correct in that these are very light for their size. A 6s2p setup would most likely be ideal however mine will use the following:

Neu 1509 2.5D 6.7
17x10 apc-e
5s4p 5300 TP prolite
Hacker master 70-O

This setup was good for 1100 watts in it's previous ride. Should be good fun

I just received mine and it is pretty big. The fuse is real tall with a decent amount of room for battery placement.
I will try to post some pictures soon.

I was hoping this would be more of a pattern plane myself. I will probably fly it on low rates and see how patterinsh it can fly.
