Hi feda.
I only see a wanderfoul flying model!
I did so trying to immitate the Clik original suggestions, since I think that Piaget is a copy of this model.
I use Axi 2204/54 on 9x4,7SF Pentium 10A ESC and 3S or 2S Lipo and it flyies fine too.
I bought 2 of them, so the second one you think that I should build it per plans and use the original motor or another one?

Your rolls look good to me feda. I left the differential in my plane, as I did with the Hokusei Space Rit as well. Both of these planes seem to roll well.

Thank you, Takis.

I have a feeling that an Axi 2204/54 may be not sufficiently powerful for your Piaget, which is about 180 grams without battery as you have mentioned.

Axi 2204/54's KV is 1400, which is close to 1450, the KV of my Dualsky XM2822-24. However, the Axi motor weighs 25 grams while the Dualsky motor weighs 30 grams. The former's maxium power is 80W while that of the latter is 100W.

I find my set-up is adequate and not at all excessive although I suspect my motor of choice is on the heavy side for the battery pack needs to be placed near the CG position in order to obtain good balance, which is also nice for you can easily use battery packs of different weights for the plane. A couple of local flyers do use smaller motors for their Piagets, but I've never seen them flying much vertical maneuvers. At least, one guy complained that his set-up was not powerful enough.


Takis, do you usually fly your Piaget indoor or outdoor, or both? I would choose to have a lighter set-up for indoor flying and a heavier set-up otherwise. Also, my personal interest is really in AeroMusical or FreeStyle kind of flying, which needs the plane to be able to accelerate and decelerate with ease. That's why I tend to pick a powerful motor for my planes.

Hi All

Im going to be ordering more of the Techone Hobby Planes, Pulama EPP and the Piaget(still have 2 in stock along with the Spark 3D and the Tribute 3D and Emax Cap232 and Facinate). They should be here in about 10 days.
To see pictures of these planes go to links below.

Which C20 Pro motor would be better to order along with these planes, the 1050kv or 2050kv?

If interested in any of these please PM me.

Hi feda and thanks for replying.i had this motor, so I used it.
I only fly outdoors and I find the thrust adequate. I flew it in windy conditions too with ease and I tried all F3A pattern. I will try a more powerfull motor. Any suggestions to buy for hobbyking?

That looks similar to the Electrifly Pluma to me.

I can't say that I agree with you, larger counter balances on the Pulama's ailerons, different leading edge shape of the wings on the Pulama, larger elevator on the Pulama.....

And the critical difference (to me), the Pulama is EPP while the Electrify is Depron. My Piaget is also EPP and I've dorked it numerous times without damage. If I dorked the Pluma the same way, it would have picked up quite a few ounces of glue weight by now.

Just wanted to mention that the Piaget is becoming my go-to plane. It's so easy to fly it even makes me look good. My poor Infineon seems to be gathering dust....though my youngest son still likes to fly it.

I couldn't disagree more! They both have 2 wings but that's about it. Besides, the Electrifly Pluma looks very similar to the scratchbuild Infineon which has been around for years.

Why is it that people seem to think that certain biplanes are ripoffs of other biplanes? Why isn't every Yak-like plane considered a ripoff of another Yak-like plane, or of the real thing?

Plane designs evolve. Things that work well will be used again and again.
