Here's the picts...and a vid, on the table.
I used the Plantraco Micro Racer gear, including motor!
I dremmeled out alot of the extra foam weight, and i'll weight it soon.
Butters and I will film a vid tomorrow while flying, ....today, it landed and the motor came loose...I forgot to glue the motor in, I just tac glued it in, while building it.... , and it still flew awesome!...guys this really flys, one of the only, conversions that I have done sucessfully!...
Thanks Butters, and I think Termite, for selling me this plane to try this out!
I'm still trying out one other prop... while I "try to make a Soda-Pop-Prop!"
The Turbo prop is light but I think it needs a lighter prop... so I can reduse my speed to scale....and keep the nose lightly lifted, but it's running from what I saw late last night ...pretty good!
It has plenty of power!... I was at 1/4-1/2 throttle max, for about 30 feet then I turned back thats when I had the accident. The landing gear I think is a must, to keep the plane from wing-tipping while turning. All it needs is some care and a hot-humid still day!...
Old time flyers, thats what I like! Remindes me of the Red Barron.
The Avionnette has an adjustable rear elev, that I forgot about when the vid was shot. Sinse then, I have lowered it, reducing the porpusing.
If you are flying it outside it has awesome control even in light wind. It's a slow fun flyer.
I'm thinking of making it a 3ch using a 3ch butterfly rec, and a MicroFlier NanoACT from BSD....
I decited to put this one in a case..It deserves a case..... "Platt #507" Now it's safe for travel.
