New KFm6 "Champion" Wing build started....

After doing the first two wing builds faceting my designs, I have skipped "Sprint". Remember that Sprint will be a 42" wing and the build would have been great, but alas, I needed materials and had to order them. My intention is to build Sprint as a precision wing, so please bare with me and I am certain you will not be disappointed. As you have seen, my designs have flown and flown well. If I doubt my designs in any way, I would not post them here to waste your or my time.

Until then here are the beginnings of Champion, my 60" wing. I do hope you enjoy.


Wing designation: Champion
Wing span: 60"
Motor: E-Flite 370 out-runner
Battery,:3S 1800mAh 11.1v
ESC: 25A
Servos: ParkZone digital removed from Typhoon 2


Foamboard from Walmart or similar outlet store.
Carbon rod and cloth for spars and joining halves from MS-Composites.
Wood glue, hot glue and epoxy 5-minute.
Strapping tape
Tongue depressors for motor mount.

Estimated AUW Ready to Fly? around 1 pound.

Never did hear anything about how Champion flew, or have you had an opportunity to maiden with going back on the road for work?
