Batteries, etc

Ok
I maidened this morning with 3s 750 rhino and 12 a esc
Flew great outdoors and the motor came down just slightly warm ...
Flew for about 9 minutes

Ohhh ,,, it was only 31degrees here this morning .. maybe thats why the motor did not get hot .

In the meantime I ordered a few Rhino 2s 750 ..... so now I will have both

any other opinions

Kept moving the battery back from the stated cob and never found the threshold of pain ... will keep adjusting

anyone have a new measurment

This is what happens when you have multiple threads about the same dang plane.

moody152 Desire-Hobby-RC over on the other thread, sells them on Ebay here in the US.

I am building mine with a DualSky XM2822-24, 1450RPM/V, 30 grams in weight. With a 2S battery pack, I can get up to 340-gram thrust. My AUW target for this plane is around 230 grams.

Hi,

Just beginning the build process and I've gotten to step #2, glue the carbon fiber strips to the wing.

In my package I have two long carbon fiber strips. Each is the perfect length to glue to the trailing edge of the wing. Which, to me implies that that is where at least one of them should go.

Yet, from the photos I can see of other people's builds they have put at least one of the carbon fiber strips in the slit which is cut towards the rear of the wing. And not at all glued to the wing's trailing edge.

Unfortunately, neither of my long carbon fiber strips will fit in the slit which is pre-cut.

- Am I supposed to shorten the carbon fiber strip to make if fit into the slit?
- Or, am I supposed to glue the strip to the trailing edge of the wing where it is the perfect length already?
- Or, am I just missing something altogether?

Also, the two leading edges of the wing are supposed to have carbon fiber strips glued in them. That's obvious enough, but which strips again? None of the strips in my package seem to be the right length. Do I use two smaller strips per side of the leading edge of the wing?

These aircraft kits always seem to make me feel like an idiot. Maybe I should take some really detailed photos of my build so I can help the next person....

Shorten it, non of the Carbon strips and rods are to length. Except the nose strips, they fit perfectly, and the tail strip.

My understanding is that the 2 long strips are meant for the main wing. One is for the rear part of the wing; the other one should be cut into 2 pieces to be glued to the left leading edge and the right leading edge respectively.
