14.8gr RC-Glider with folding motor. With plans and Video


1.5mm Depron, 59cm wingspan, Microinvent reciever and Aktuators (2x), X-Twin Motor and 1S 50mAh Lipo.
It flys very slow.

That's excellent, is there a spring loading (or other) to fold the motor back when it's not running? I'd like to see a vid if you can make one, it does look slow.

Way to many airplanes!
Very, very nice design (and small). Technically, you would not need a spring I think...

The transmitter should cover most requirements for this model?

I saw the video of it in the gym. It looks very nice. Do you think you will be able to get a video when the weather decides to cooperate?
