Hey Atom, what was your glassed (uncovered) weight? mine is ~18oz including servos.

20.10oz after glass, 24.5 after covering with monokote. I used HS5645 digital standard servos in mine. What did you use?

HS225MG. just like my TL50. 18.4 oz glassed. my spreadsheet estimate says ~43oz all up weight with Het3w and 3s 4350 lipo. Likely a couple more oz for misc hardware so I'm expecting arount 45oz auw. 0.85oz/sq foot from glassing. I was nervous about glassing weight since I sort of overdid it on my TL50 but it still flies great with 8oz of weight in the nose. Hoping I'm smarter on the balance this time.

what is your TL60 auw?

An estimated 50-55oz. I am aiming for descent speed and extreme thrust. I wan't good vertical performance. Thats just slightly heavier then my first 50 so it should still be a floater.

i am waiting for some flight results. this is the perfect platform for my combat with the i.c. guys.

need the 60" wingspan that will do 90mph+- for about 5 minutes, any guesses what set-up will get me there.

the 16/15/4 on 3c hasn't made it in the past but maybe my wings weren't as efficecient as kliques are (maybe i was using junkie batteries also).

i've been threatning to buy a ritewing, this may be the itch that gets scratched.

i posed this question about a year ago and with the responces i came close, but still was under 80mph. just not fun to be the slowest in a combat event.

will be interested to hear the results of these wings to determine if they will work for me.

thanks

That new technique for covering the bottom is simply fantastic. I can't wait to see what you come up with for the twin. Thanks for all your efforts bro.
