Review Part 3 - MinimumRC Micro Spitfire Warbird BNF Kit New Servo & CG Test Flights

MinimumRC Planes:

Banggood GCRC

Here is a link to the Video:

I love these Micro / Nano Planes from MinimumRC!
This is the third Plane from MinimumRC I have reviewed thus far and this BNF Kit is courtesy of MinimumRC.
These Planes are so small and light they make great Planes for flying outdoors in smaller areas and for flying indoors during the Winter or when the weather won't permit flying outdoors.
I think MinimumRC is doing some very good things in the design of these Planes and they also have a great inventory of electronics for your own Micro / Nano Plane projects.
The Builds are pretty simple and the downloadable Build Manual really makes it easy.
If you've never checked out MinimumRC you should take a look @

I compared the full movement of the Aileron Servo with another Micro Servo I had in my inventory and found it was only moving half the distance it should.
So, certain that the Aileron Servo is bad, I relaced it and now I'm going to test out the Roll Rate again and also test some CG adjustments to see what feels best with my Flying Style ;-)

Here are links to the Kits, Associated Electronics, and other Needful Things.

The latest firmware supports HV lipos. The UI, two lines of text controlled/edited by buttons, look archaic compared to modern touchscreens, but the chargers still work well.

The fuselage is prinTED and I have mixed feelings about it .

Fuse 01 = 26.8 grams ..
A) Came out of the printer OK , looks ok ! The tabs used for joining Fuse 01 to Fuse 02 are fragile and under engineered . Pictured is carbon rod re-enforcement . The bottom tabs have already broken off . Fuse 01 is strong , really strong .
B) There are certain design flaws aside from the weak joining tabs . The motor .. Has to go in before you glue the fuse and then what ? If the screws come lose how do you tighten them after assembly ? Obviously you need to break the damned thing .
C) Weight . Cant get past the fact that there is a lot of weight here for good or bad .

Fuse 02 = 17.7 grams
A) Little to complain about here , possibly the best thought out part

Fuse 03 = 18 grams
A) Seriously strong , possibly overly engineered and heavy for it's size .

Fuse 04 = 20.3 grams
A) Porky Pig .. Again I think over engineered and seriously over weight .
B) The joining tab is way short , this is a design flaw ( in my opinion ) and creates a weak point .
C) ???? I dont know about the tail section ...

Over all , it's probably the most refined model out there for free . ( Printable ) But if we do the maths
26.8 + 17.7 + 18 + 20.3 = 82.8 grams ..

And thats just the Fuse ...
I dont think I have a motor that can fit and pull a house brick at the moment .
Sort of Ho humming continuing , but I think I have to ..
Pictured = I fitted a small motor and folding prop , but they only do about 150 grams thrust as a combo .
To fly this safely , I would assume at least a minimum of 250 grams of thrust ..
If this really has a projected weight of 450 grams .. Thats a lot of weight .
I think you want it a lot lighter than that . But you may need a lot of motor to compensate for the heavy ass on this plane ( CG )

This is the maiden flight of the Precision Aerobatics Katana MX. Unfortunately, the maiden got cut short due to weather, but hey at least I know it flies.

If you're fan of Tundra/Bush plane/STOL scale flying, you may be wondering about various tire/wheel sizing & weight. What follows is a summary of some of the tires that I've tested to date.

For context, here are the full scale Alaskan Bushwheel options and the corresponding scale measurements

First steps in 2014

Pic 5660cr

After flying indoor toy helicopters for a while I desired to purchase a serious secondhand helo to fly outdoors. Jan 2014 my eyes fell on an electro scale Hugues 500E in unattractive Danish Army colors, completely ready to fly and equipped with a Helicommand Rigid ground and air stabilizer, plus five 6S3300 batteries. I trusted that my skills with the Blade 120 and like, augmented by the quality stability system, would be sufficient to get it in the air to teach myself. The deal was concluded and after coming home I knew the first thing I wanted to do was to transvestite it into the colors of the famous Hugues 500D that was used in every episode op the worldwide popular eighties television series: Magnum. As painting gloss yellow over matte dark green would be very difficult, I opted to cover it in vinyl and purchased lengths of yellow, orange and brown. I couldn’t refrain from first making a picture of my acquisition next to a Blade 130X helicopter that I hand-painted as a German police BO105 instead of the omnipresent Red-bull dress-up.

Pic 2014-5

I quickly regretted my decision to work with vinyl, applying parallel angled stripes shoulder to shoulder over angled and double-curved surfaces proved very challenging but I never gave up. In the end I started by first using see-through paper that I pushed in place hugging the surfaces, then marked where the previous strip ended, put the paper flat on the table and drew a new...Continue Reading

I recently bought a RadioMaster TX16s and upgraded this old foamie to use a FRSky receiver. I had towed the flag many years ago. This was an old EPP plane that Hobby Lobby imported. It's a 40" wing span and uses a 480 Eflite motor.

My 3D printer has been idle for some time so I thought it was time to do that 3D printed plane thing .
Problem is , finding something that I want to print . Is going to be small and light enough to play with .
And no such animal exists !

I downloaded a lot of planes off Thingiverse , but most are incomplete . ( Not ready to print ) = This is the one I am printing out !
Completed fuse 01 last night , and am doing fuse 02 now . ( 74% complete )

Will see ...

Wingspan: 720 mm (920 mm when using Big Wing version)
Length: 578 mm
Est. weight: 450 g ( A little Porky Pig ) and is that flying weight or prinTED weight ?
CG: 26 mm
