This with the proper gearing should work well in a car.

well had some time to fly the micro Ellipso
still need to make a few adjustments and probably could have done it on the spot by adjusting the elevator but it was dam cold 24* so i flew what she had setup.

Just did a little adjusting and she flies great now all i did was add a little tape to the nose and bent the elevator down a hair and she is good to go.
even took it in the front yard and was able to fly her in 10 to 12 foot circles at half throttle and about 5' off the ground so she is a steady little plane..

will try to get some better video in the day time next

EA's over Michigan

I have been very busy at work. But we have been working on 2 EA's a 60" and a 55". We added 3" to the nose of the 60" and left the 55" stock.The 100" will be cut out this week if all goes well. Got all the electronics yesterday.

We made two variations of the wing. I will post pictures tomorrow.

Last question..One servo or two for the ailerons? What size

Hi Al,

I've wondered where you were and how your projects were coming along!!!

I used the Hitec HS55 servo's on mine. They should work on yours because you will be flying slow. Maybe the next size up would be a good idea.

It's great to hear from you!!! Keep us posted - more often.

I've been watching the videos over and over. That is so cool to see the little guy flying around Target at night. First night videos!

I can't wait to see the next videos now that you have made some adjustments.

Great micro Smitty!!!

The digital metal gear servos ($9 or so)you pointed out to me, from hobbypartz, have held up very well so far. Usually at this point, the typical $3 9g servo would have either stripped a gear or stopped working altogether, I abuse my planes.

I'm glad you reminded me of these. I'm going to order me some as well, before I forget this time.

Al, these would be the best for your plane as well!

Thanks inline!!!

ps: Do you have the model number, etc.?

If you ever mount your little cam to your plane, Id like to see a photo, Im just curious how small the things is.

Thanks
