15 glider!

I bought this glider with 2 servo's fitted,the span is about 2 meters.
It is beautifully made,not sure if it was a kit or scratchbuild, but nevertheless, a great deal.
I wondered if it had a problem as it was so cheap?

It was soon fitted out with a 30 amp ESC, and a Phase 3 P-38 outrunner, with an APC 10 X 4.7 prop. A ply firewall motor mount was quickly fabricated,as I was in a rush to see if this thing worked!

Battery is a 3S 2200 20C 'Mystery' brand pack,.

Test flight:

Although the previous mount was angled for downthrust as you can see in the photos, it wasn't enough in practice.
The model climbs at a reasonable rate on full power, but definitely puts her nose up,so am going to add more downthrust,as when trimmed under full power for straight and level, cutting the power off sends her slightly nosediving,but for the price, I'm not complaining!

She serves as a great mount for my FC-1 camera.

I'm happy with my purchase, may she have many sorties
