Old Wattage Decathlon RTF


I won this last year at BEST 2008. Can't say it is a popular RTF as it is made from plastic and runs on a brushed motor.

However....

This is actually a fun little plane. Not a great plane by any means but sometimes you find a product that serves you well and keeps on going. I've actually torn the wing off of this plane on one of the first flights but was able to repair it with Gorilla Glue and tape. Got right back in the air without any flight performance changes. And what do you do when the box doesn't include the clips for wing struts? Cable ties!

One modification I made was adding an eye hook and rubber band to help the main landing gear from flexing. Doesn't look great but does exactly what I need. Oh yea, and chunked the NiMH battery for a 2S LiPo. 2-3 loooong flights without a charge.

Thought I'd share a positive experience with everyone today.
