Up until the motor shaft breaks. Or the motor burns out. Or the bearings start to wear.

Here's a nice site with paper-plans for 3D models. It might inspire you how, to get some 3D volume out of your build (have a look at how these models wings are made) : http://www.bobscardmodels.com/
Here's my attempt of a Grumman Albatross, using the plan from Bobscardmodels : https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show....php?t=1444586

Happy landings - Chris

I'm working on a 3D plane with the 6400L and I accidentally unplugged the motor from the brick. Does anybody have a picture of which pins I need to plug it into?

How heavy is the mylar covering used in the extra300 3D? (g.m^-2)

"right" as in looking forward, from behind. Right and left on a vehicle is always from the perspective of of the vehicle and not to a an outside observer of the vehicle.

The Plug is on the back of the brick, the gear wheels are on the front.

Without me reading all 110 pages, which I'll do in time, have there been any planes made for the beast guts?

The Beast guts is a more powerful option what with the BL180 motor and built in BL ESC so I think that any of the models in this thread would benefit from this combination

Look in the other foamy threads/ posts for additional subjects, then resize to suit your application.

The Beast internals are roughly equivalent to an AP-05 and discrete ESC, but a little heavier and a little less powerful. Have a look in the "5- and 10-gram brushless models" thread.

hmmm... no answer; I'll ask my question in another way:
How much does the mylar covering used on micro 3D planes weigh? (gram.meter^-2)

Tough to answer. There are many different types of covering used, and the weights vary a lot. You can't always get the same stuff in different countries, as shipping dictates we use what is available to each us user.

The easier answer is roughly calculate your surface area of the intended plane, even if you just estimate squares and rectangles. Then manufactures usually quote weight on their products by the square yard, etc.
