I've got a 12mm feiagio (sp?) and cc phx-10 esc and 3x3 prop. How would this power train work in the smaller wingspan version? I'd like one if this will work.

I picked up a couple of FS kits this weekend at MWE. One's gonna be a sloper but the other will get the Vasa55 fan that I also got my hands on. I think one of my RZ2500s will get power duty for this too. I've never dealt with an EDF anything yet so if any of you guys do up the FS in an EDF mode, be sure to post a build thread on how to go about it for the rest of us noobs, ok?

I just got the 25" kit ordered. 2s 1500mah lipo ,12mm brushless, cc 10a ,4 gram servos,and micro rx. Motor, ESC,RX, servos weigh 1.75 oz Wonder how it will fly. I can always slap a himax 2015-4100 on there if i need more?

i got a fs and the standard comin and i'm not sure what to power it with. i have a arc 110 motor also have an edf and a 12mm. i sure am undecided!! to build lite or heavy that is the ? .

i think the 1500 lipo might be heavy considering the weight of the other items. but that can depend on a bunch of variables. i run my mini demon at around 4.2 oz's and that is with a feigao phx10 and a 480 2s prolite. it is uncovered and has a flat carbon spar. and meat tray(depron) wing tips and elevons.

so far the gws rx with lite antenna is solid without a glitch. but then again i never get to far away. its amazing how slow i can get it to fly. but in a turn i have to accelerate or it will get a bit unstable.

After seeing the weight and the ws the 1500 2s should be fine.
i used to run the mini d on a 3s 1320 and it was fine, the fs is a little bigger too.
The fiego might need upgrading but should be fine for now.

yeah i agree. what i meant is a 1500 is a bit of weight with a feigao. not much thrust for that bigger plane and battery.

i know that plane will weigh more and draggier(is that a word or a life style? lol)what i get with my mini at its weight is great, would like more thrust, and am happy with how she flys

i'd like to know what the total weight will be built heavy and lite. hows the medusa 12mm compare.



i am into being wrong, might learn something. and hate to give bad advise.

And ya those batteries look to be the poop.I see black lines on the Spanker in the pics, is that carbon ? How are you guys mounting your motors?

my mini demon has gws picos, gws 4 rx phx10 feigao 4100kv 3x2 prop depron parts and i just installed a flat carbon in the wing because it did the dreaded zagi flap. it weighs about 4.3oz's and it is awesome. battery is 480 prolite and i just bought some apoggee lipos from the lhs they have 2s 350's for 11.50 a pop.

i can fly it at any small field. i prefer to fly with trees around and circle em. it just bounces. i've broken the nose once and a wing tip a couple times. i did what ck mentioned and made the wing tips bigger and longer for stability at slow speed. made a HUGE difference, before i had tiny wing tips.

wish i had a dig cam i'd post video it does fly very slow.

I've been wondering about a 370 size outrunner? wonder how it would work. I started fabbing an aluminum motor mount to hold one just in case. Should the motor thrust be in the center line of the airfoil,or can the motor sit ontop of the wing?

I just got a UPS package. Time to get started.You guys using hot glue or thin layer of epoxy to attach wing halves.Hot glue has some give which may help when i have unscheduled landings.
