Cloud-9,

Washout is a twist of the wing where the wing tip has a lower angle of attack than the root of the wing, near the fuselage. With washout, the root of the wing will stall before the tip, where the ailerons are, allowing the pilot to retain control at high angles of attack even beyond the point where the wing starts to stall. As long as flow remains attached at the tip, the pilot will have some roll control.

Dropping the ailerons as flaperons increases the angle of attack at the tip, effectively creating wash-IN, the opposite of washout. The tip will stall before the root, and therein lies the problem.

I'm starting to think about selling my T'craft to buy something larger and heavier. I really love this little thing, and it really flies well when there's little to no wind, but every single time I get a chance to fly, the winds are anywhere from 6 to 10 mph or more, and while the airplane can be flown in 10mph winds, it just isn't that fun to me any more. The little thing just really bounces around in the turbulence at my field, and I had several very close calls trying to get it back on the ground this evening in gusty 10mph breezes, mostly down the runway. I find myself taking my T-Rex 450 with me so I have something to fly when the wind kicks up!

It really is a pretty airplane, but I think I'm ready for a .60 size slimer that'll handle wind!

Thanks guys
its all going to depend on your motor I run a Trurnigy 3536C about the same as a 480 or power 15 and I run A 11X6 Prop and the plane loves it a 10X6 is faster but I seem to like a 11X6 plenty of power and 15 min flight times on a 2200mah batt. 20 Amps full out and 5-7 avg

I am going to use the following motor

1. 1050Kv
2. Continuous Cur : 25A
3. Max Burst : 30
4. Idle Current : 0,7A
5. Resistance : 0,075

And a 30A esc

I think that wooden ones would be heavier and i just might go to smaller diam ???

Battery would be a 2200mAh 20C

Thanks

Sounds like a 10x6 - 10X8 would be a good start @ 1050KV. Wood or not I prefer ACP props cause they don't get chewed up as fast but I like the wood look and balance better (just me)

If that is what I believe it to be, it is a 480 clone and uses a 3.2 mm collet! I have 4 of these and love them. Go to donsrc.com, and you will find it.

Report back on maiden as I may use this motor, too: it is a powerhouse!

Sorry, old eyes: I could only guess that 2 INCHES in diameter would be about right, but as I've not built mine, yet, maybe someone else can help.

IF this is the same motor, you will love it!

My favorite spinners are TRU-TURN - get smallest size with collet sized to motor - Looks great on my taylorcraft - Funtana-x - Edge540 - etc. Absolutely the finest product at any price and well worth it.
