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

MinimumRC Planes:

https://www.banggood.com/custlink/GmDmQ1nVkO

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 @ https://www.minimumrc.com/

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.

Well, the 2nd Landing Gear MOD worked out extremely well ;-)
I put 6 LIPOs through the Plane and wanted to put 4 more through it but the Bugs ran me out!
I pretty much took a bath in Deet every other flight as less frequently than that the Bugs were feasting on me again.
This Plane is Awesome! Now I just need some Calmer Wind so I can practice Hovering, and fewer Bugs ;-)

I adjusted the Aileron and Elevator linkage to get a bit more Control Surface Deflection to give me some Elevator in Reserve and Increase the Roll Rate.
It worked out very well and didn't need any Trimming ;-)

This is a great Demonstration of the Intermediate Mode Gyro System Stability in 14-20mph (22-32kph) Wind ;-)
I can't believe I launched it in this much Wind!
Given that I had to push the throttle to 100% several times just to maintain a stationary position, I would estimate the maximum speed of this Plane in level flight to be somewhere in the range of 20-25mph.
I'm happy to say it came back completely undamaged!

Glue & Fly™ Series - The GFS F-22 Nano V1 Plans are Here! (3 min 40 sec)


I have performed many Test Flights on this Nano F-22 Parkjet including flying in 5-6mph (8-10kph) Wind ;-)
It handled all my Test Flights extremely well and I'm satisfied this Nano Parkjet is ready for others to Build and Fly.
I think the Slow Flight capability is good enough to allow indoor flight in an area such as a Gymnasium.
I have uploaded (2) PDF Files, (1) has the Documents in Letter Format and (1) has the Documents in A4 Format.
There are (2) sets of Plans in each PDF file, (1) is a Full Sheet Print and (1) is several Letter or A4 Sheets.
I have made some adjustments to the Plans and I have not had an opportunity to Build another Airframe from these Plans.
If you find anything is not correct on these Plans please let me know an I will correct the error.

Wind was supposed to be 3-4mph this morning but my Wind Meter showed the Wind was actually 5-8mph.
After the first flight the Wind increase to 6-10mph.
Well, it turned out to be a good opportunity to see how this 3D Plane handles significant Wind ;-)
It did get pushed into the ground pretty hard on my last landing when a strong Gust kicked up!
It passed it's first Durability Test but I did lose the Prop.

Thank you Banggood for providing this Aircraft for Review!

This Warbird comes in a PNF and RTF Version.
I chose the PNF Version so I could use my Hobby-Grade Transmitter

In Test Flight #19 & #20 I noticed the Roll Rate to the Left was much Slower than the Roll Rate to the Right.
I stated I would take a look at the Aileron Linkage Rigging to see if it can be adjusted and sure enough it can ;-)
I adjusted the Aileron Rig so now it's time to see if the Roll Rate to the Left is improved while maintaining a good Roll Rate to the Right.
Fingers Crossed!

This was one of my first Traditional Planes and is still one of my Favorites ;-)
It has plenty of power with the 2S Power System, it's very durable, and very fun to fly.

Thank you Banggood for providing this Aircraft for Review!

This Warbird comes in a PNF and RTF Version.
I chose the PNF Version so I could use my Hobby-Grade Transmitter

Having "Murphy" with me every step of the way made for a very difficult Review.
It seemed as though, anything that could go wrong, went wrong ;-)
I've never rolled the Outtakes on a Review but this one certainly deserves it ;-)

I can't stop flying this Plane!
This is going to be an excellent 3D Trainer for me and it's a blast just doing these Slow, Graceful, Maneuvers with this Plane.
It's definitely worth the time to build.

I'm very impressed with this Kit 3D Plane.
It has a lot of power, is graceful in the air, and a lot of fun to fly.
I highly recommend this Yak54 Aerobat EPP 800mm Wingspan 3D Plane.

***I incorrectly stated in the video that the Linkage Setup I have in place offers the most movement but not the best Mechanical Advantage. That is incorrect, the setup I'm using does not offer the most movement or least Mechanical Advantage, it is a compromise between the two.

I have been wanting to Review a 3D Plane for quite some time.
In the right hands, they are very Aerobatic but also Graceful in the air.
I've never flown a 3D Plane before so they're won't be much in the way of Grace but definitely some Aerobatics ;-)
This Yak54 is an 800mm Wingspan Kit, no Electronics are included.
Mine had everything it should, except for the Motor Mount, which I suspect fell out of the Box.
Yep! This time UPS strikes again!
When I received the box the Carbon Spar and Control Rods were hanging out of a damaged corner of the box so I suspect that is how I'm missing the Motor Mount.
The Build was pretty straight forward.
I didn't like the stock assembly of the Landing Gear so I performed a MOD on that ;-)
I wanted my Aileron Servo and Control Assembly on the Bottom of the Wing instead of the Top so I perfomed a MOD for that.
I also performed a MOD on the Cutouts for the Motor Mount as I wanted more surface area for gluing the Motor Mount.
Everything else assembled as it should.
The Kit included the Carbon Wing Spar, Control Horns, Control Rods, Control Rod Linkage Stops, Control Rod Supports, Velcro, and the Control Surfaces are already Beveled...Continue Reading
