I flew Adam's fairly high powered X-Raycer this evening. I was a little nervous at first, but even at top speed it is very smooth and predictable. I topped off the flight with a nice catch...very nice.

The only problem is that now I want more power too!

That is how it starts

I wish I had more time to build this, I could show it off at the Kief next weekend...Why do we have to work for a living?

Well, this was a really quick build.
Printed the tiled plans and had the plane together after around 4 hours of work.
The build guide is really top notch. The effort that went into it can really be seen.

Turnigy 2826-1900KV, APC 7x5E (For now )
Mystery 30A ESC
Hxt 900 Servos.

Looks great! Lol, at first glance I thought it was a picture of my X-Raycer. I didn't expect you would finish so soon.

Best of luck on the maiden flight!

BTW you don't need very much throw +- 30 degrees and 75% expo is a good starting point for pitch and roll.

Guys - I saw Leadfeather fly the prototype and was really impressed. Then I saw adreher fly his and was just flat stunned! Talk about speed an maneuverability!!! It's nearly impossible to video tape and will do snap ups like you won't believe. Adam is really impressive flying his and has done wonders with the graphics! The really cool thing is the speed envelope for the plane - it will scream when you want it to and will also slow down nicely for more docile flying. It's fun to watch them slow it down to landing speed and then snap in elevator to bring it to a stop in the air for a zero distance landing roll (without the landing gear.)

Hats off to Dan and Adam for their newest plane. Gotta build one and can't wait to see what's next!!!

We haven't tried epp, we've been using 6mm Depron and using 3M Spray 77 to glue the paper to foam.

3 X-Raycers


Here is a video we shot recently showing off 3 completely different powe set ups for the X-Raycer. 1) Blue Wonder maybe 100watts 2) 2409-12T 200ish and a Turnigy 2836-2350.

The mildest set up still has good speed for windy day flying, the wildest setup is fast, very fast yet slows down well for close in flying and easy landings.

The UFOlogist say only extraterrestrial crat can fly at amazing seeds and make 90 degree turns, Oh Yeah, check out the video at 2:20.

Carbon color X-Raycer


The X-Raycer has always reminded me of a stealth aircraft. The stealth/carbon color scheme seemed like a natural idea. Now available on mach1rc.com the web site.

The turnigy motor for the "medium" set up was running a 7x6E prop. The "hot" set up was running a 6x5.5.

Bought the 24" yesterday. I didn't see the 20" one. Is that something new since yesterday? I should have waited one more day. I have a big stack of 22" depron. Oh well, bummer. Very cool plane guys!
