So...here I am at E-Fest.
What is YOUR ideal LS setup?
I have two new fuses (only one nose though) and want to build a couple new setups.
Figured I would ask the experts.
Thanks!!

Here is my setup. 600 ma 3 cell battery, 1500kv blue wonder brushless, GWS 8x4 prop, 10 amp esc; 2 x 9 gm servos.
Make the fins and elevons out of depron. I make the elevons between 1.25-1.75 inches wide depends how responsive I want the stryker to be.
I make the hatch out of a manilla folder covered in black packing tape.
This should get you a stryker with very good vertical at around 11 ounces. Take out the fiberglass spars to drop another .6 ounce.

Hi guys!
I've been flying heavy Strykers for some years but have recently put together a lightweight version. I used stock airframe, hatch and elevons, but for the rest I used:

Motor: C20 1550kv: http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...er_1550kv.html
Fins: own design. 1.5mm cardboard laminated with vinyl tape and packing tape.
Esc: A yellow, generic 30A that was originally shipped with a HK foamy
Servos: http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...dProduct=16259
Prop: APC7x5E
Battery: 2S1300 15C: http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...1P_15_25C.html
Rx: AR500

The mission was to build a "fly anywhere" Stryker capable of carrying a keychain camera and long flight time, and I'm quite happy with the outcome.

I've always enjoyed your great Stryker videos. Chalk up another nice one with your light Stryker.

Introducing the X-ray lite stryker.
I wanted to try something different. I cut out as much of the body as dare. Total up weight is 8.9 Oz on 2 cell and 9.6 on 3 cell. Funny thing is it is slightly heavier from the reinforcements I had to do comparered with the base foam after you remove the spars. I thinks it looks cool and flys good.
And yes it does have a hatch set made out of clear tape.

Put some lights in there!!!!

So you're saying we're better off, weight-wise, to leave the foam alone?

Hi!!!
For a lightweight stryker most guys ditch the stock C canopy because its too heavy.

The plane you are looking to build is much faster and heavier. But i tell you what. Check out this thread. The light strykers are a blast.
