My First Kit Build And EDF Plane!
Hi there just thought Id post of few pic's of what I made of my West Wings Hunter Kit. This is the first kit plane and 4th I have ever built so be gentle! . Ive had a couple of weeks off work so I decided Id try my hand and actually building my next plane and not just getting another ARTF, I was also keen to have a go on an EDF model and chose to make the Hunter. Overall I found the build really good fun and only made a few mistakes but managed to sort most of them out fairly easily. The bit that really scared me was the covering as Ive never attempted this in my life before and it looks pretty difficult! but I think my Hunter came out OK ( and I have to admit that I chose this paintscheme after seeing Gordons one on here ). I powered it with 3s1p Dualsky 25C GT Lipo, Mega 16 edf, Mini Fan 480, Dualsky 60a speed controller, Radio gear x3HS55 Spektrum AR6200 ultra lite rx. I successfully maidened it a few days ago! Flies very nicely although needed alot of nose down trim even though C.G. was exactly where it was supposed to be. This is my first EDF and 4th plane so its very hard for me to estimate what speed it flies at but I would guess around 70mph? Im hooked on this edf stuff now and really want to get my hands on a jepe f16 Anyway heres my pics (and some of my 3D hobby Shop Yak) and Ill try and remember to take my camera next time I take it to the park for some inflight shots
