Hi guys hopefully somone can help, in the plans provided is there one that would suit and axi 2208/34 goldline and 3s 800mah lipo? i have this setup on a Great PLanes Flatout Turmoil running a 9x3.8 and flying it inside is a touch exciting to say the least as it has come out over 100g heavier than it should be so its a bit fast! need a model that can handle that power train but be nice and slow.
Was toying with the idea of adding some speed brakes/spoilers to it but id rather have a purpose built model than trying to mod an already overweight plane! either that or start cutting holes all over the poor thing.
many thanks

Just a side note, the total all up weight of the turmoil at the mo is 400g and it will prop hang at a click above half throttle. dont know if that helps!

Youre setup is much to heavy for indoor pattern type flying. You'll want to get a smaller motor (such as the EFlite Park 250 or Hacker A10 15S), a 5-10Amp ESC, 2s 350mah Li-Po (or smaller mah) to get a decent setup for indoor pattern. Remember, the lighter you make it the slower it flies. Reducing your component weights is the only way to do this.

Hi thanks seth. had a horrible feeling that would be the case!
know of a large-ish outdoor capable shock flyer larger than a turmoil? pretty much resigned to the fact that it will either be that or shell out for a whole new setup. seen vids of variable pictch mid mounted models and have to admit they have caught my eye!

The full fuse version is made with 3mm depron, so it actually comes out much lighter than the 6mm profile. So I ended up using a 370 equivalant. A 400 size outrunner oughta work out great with a 9x4.7 and 3s 800mah. Try to keep the weight less than 14oz.

Just noticed the weight of ur motor.......oops!
What u really need is a Leadfeather Yak made out of EPP!!! Like the 3DEPP.com yak!
With the low kv, might need a 9x6 prop tho.......that should pull a 7 to 9 oz plane plenty good!


Might be able to make the full fuse Pitts too.

Hmmm ... speaking of EPP Yak55's check out WMParkFLyers.com

This is our standard kit and paint job ... we have all the goodies to go with it as well.

Why does it say "we are currently offering the red white and blue kit above" under the yellow flames #5?

Good catch ... I copied the text for the Orange Blue flame from the kit RWB kit above it ... it is fixed now ... PM me your address and I will send you some free prop saver bands for finding and pointing out the error.

Yes the yaks are 1.3lb EPP ... they bounce when you dumb thumb them into the ground. They are great for learning new maneuvers ... more time on the sticks and less time repairing. There are a lot of guys in our club flying them and applying what they have learned to their balsa planes. They are kind of like a real life simulator with a real life reset button ... just dust em off and throw em back in the air.

I know, I make my micro 3D planes from EPP, and need lots of carbon, but it is a lot lighter and bouncier.
