The test mule for the HK 1.7 gram servos, 3mm Depron and 40 grams AUW. Was meant to use a DPW brushless with GWS 3X3 prop but finally went with another motor and 5X3 prop. Rx is FlyDream 4 ch. 1 gram with HK 3A single cell ESC and 180mA batt. fly nice and not too fast despite the weight Was a quick build fro a few years ago languishing in the closet Was supposed to use the Spektrum ar-2000 servos but I wasn't too pleased with them!

Totally off topic but the music from the movie "O Cangaciero" has been in the back of my mind for awhile and I've done some research on Virgulino "Lampiao". Here is the old version from his time in the 30's,it was recorded in 1957 and the singer is an ex-cangacieros("Volta seca" the nickname of Antonio Alves de Souza) from Lampiao's group; it was sung during the failled attack on Mossorro in 1927!

Cleaning up the hobby room while preparing to move I found that old pop-pop experiment from many years ago. Its about 12" long carved out of pink foam and was using standard size servo/Rx+ a 500 mA Nicad pack! Was using Willesco solid fuel and ran for about 5 minute on two tablets, wont be moving to the new place so it will live only as picture

The pou wasn't a big success, flew like a drunken bumblebee
so I'll recycle its wings into a small bipe with the same equipment!

Started the build for that profile pou, still needs to do the main wing hinge and landing gear.

A new bird for the Flydream 1 gram Rx, 16" span and the faithfull AD-C5 on one cell R.E.T with two AS-2000 servos. It fly Ok with a 4.5"X3" GWS and one Zippy 240 mA. 3mm Depron wing and 1/16" balsa tail with 4mm carbon fiber tube in between!

Added the landing gear today (1/32"music wire) and glued the foam cowl on the firewall. The total weight with motor,prop,esc is now 28.3 grams. That leaves me some elbow room for my choice of servo, I feel that even if I use the FD 2.5 gram servos and 240 mA Zippy I will still be under 45 grams rtf
I have another plane on the assembly line which will use two Toki and I don't really want to use AS-2000 on that plane. I have two more of these Rx so might build another "Guided Mite " by Ralph Bradley

The first bird for my Flydream 1 gram Rx, inspired by these Frog FF models:
At 14" span its kind of between the junior and senior serie, the wing is 3mm depron with sanded airfoil and the fuse mostly 1/16" balsa with lightening holes and covered with red solite. The top fuse in the front is sanded 9mm depron. So far it weight 24.5 gram with motor(AD-C5 /3700Kv)so I am still wondering about using Toki servos,AS-2000 or the Flydream which weight almost 3 grams. It will be RET and one cell (180<240 mA)and the prop is GWS EP-4530 which give good performances with that motor, the esc is the excellent TGY DP 3A. Since I have several of these Rx I have other builds in the pipeline
