My Piaget was built using low cost components. I used an HXT900 on the ailerons and HXT500's for the tail. I moved the servos quite a ways forward during my build to allow me to use lighter batteries and still get the correct cg. My plane will fly hands off whether upright or inverted using the Rhino 2s 360 or 460. My battery is about 35- 45mm's from the motor mount plate. You can see where I mounted the servos in the photos on page 13 of this thread.

Cheers

Michael

motor for Paiget

I have the Techone C20 in stock,

I have it running with a 9*5 slow prop

the stock 10A esc runs cool. very low amp loading when Full throttle.

With a 800mah 7.4V Hovers at half stick, I am not even intereted to see how it performs with a 3S... Cos i am very happy with the 800mah 2S with the 9X5 + C20 motor setup. Runs very well!

The motors are $25.00 each
Also have very limited stock of the 9*5 props. (more comming in soon)

Enzo, thanks for your build thread. I am putting mine together this week and will use all of your ideas to keep it light and slow it down for indoor.

Regards,
Harrow.

I can't take credit for the thread. I only added a few posts to an existing thread to show what I did to my plane to improve it. The experienced f3p guys could probably make it fly better than I did mine. My changes were just guesses as to what to do based on some of what I've seen on f3p's.

I gather thats for outdoor use by the pack?

How does that motor perform with a 350 2S?

How can you guys fly with a 360mah? I once tried that and it had to be moved up to the motor mount and it still wasn't enough, small lipos make it tail heavy

Move your servos towards the front and the CG can be perfect for a plane that will fly level inverted or upright with the tail trimmed to center. I use a 2s Rhino 360 or 460 on mine. The 360 requires only a very small amount of forward stick when inverted. The 2s 460 is hands off for level flight whether upright or inverted. You can see my servo positions in photos I posted earlier. Move them a little farther forward than I did if you want the proper cg with a 360. I like the smaller batteries because the plane will fly a little slower by weighing less.

Anyone use Blenderm tape for the hinges and is it still staying on?

The hinges that come with the kit look OK but would like to seal the gaps.

I used it instead of the supplied hinges, it worked fine on mine. When building with EPP I always spray on some 3M77 adhesive prior to putting on the blenderm.

Yep I have used Super 77 on EPP before. So how didi you spray it without spraying the whole plane?

I used Blenderm without any additional adhesive and it's sticking fine so far, probably 40 or 50 flights so far.
