So I thought I would dip my toe in the canardly pursuit and see what all the fuss was about

I chose a rather old design called a Canardex, built from a plan, as it has a relatively simple balsa construction and looked pretty tough, so would make a good trainer.

The model has been built with a 3S set up running on a 1100mAh battery, 25 amp ESC and 1100kv Turnigy motor with a Multiplex Xeno 9x6 folding pusher prop. These props are really neat (particularly if you are planning on doing a bit of slopin') for 3S pusher applications and, being specialized pusher/folder props, they don't over-rotate forwards or backwards.

Here's a vid of the maiden flights with a bit of AP. Crank up the HD to 720.
