Sunrise EP Pocket Pattern Plane


Just got a new 40" EPO foam Pocket Pattern Plane at work. Interesting-looks like a baby Integral. Sold one to a customer and he promised to weigh it out and give me a report. Box says it should weigh in @ 27oz but we're guessing in around 19-21oz with a Scorpion 2215-1127 powering it. He's going to fly it with 1320 3s pack first then try a 2200mah pack for windier days. Looks quite good for $65! Can you say Park Pattern Practice Plane 3 times fast? Of course the first thing to do is ditch the crappy folding prop arrangement and put on a real prop. Other than that is it's got nice ply reinforced servo holders and battery tray/motor mount.

Wing Area : 292 sq in / 18.8 sq dm
Flying Weight : 27 oz / 760 g
Fuselage Length : 40.5 in / 1030 mm

I'm pretty sure you can build them a lot lighter, I've got a friend who got the first one and we're thinking in the 19-21oz range.

Kyle just got the first one from the store and judging by the Handymans AUW, this plane should come in around 19-21oz instead of the 27oz advertised. So a Scoripion 2215-1127 or your MicroDan should work well. Wating on his call to see AUW and flight report. It looks like a great throw it in the truck park pattern foamie to me!

I need something that flys half straight in 10-15 winds. Vizion= 5 and less, 47shp= never

Probably will fly better in stronger wind conditions with a 2200 in place of the 1320(light wind flying)

Ha. I knew it was from TheWingsMaker. It had that look about it. Very intriguing! I've got a thing for little pattern planes. The Sunrise seems poised between the two GWS Formosas. Typically the small 'Mosa is 13-15 oz, and the larger one 30-35 oz or so.

I'd have to hope that the lower weight figure (20-21 oz AUW) is correct.

I'd like to see a 54" sized one myself-possibly with a T-can?

working on aileron geometry tonight. 3114's are centering well with good power at the control surface with a .55:1 ratio. I was hoping to get the throw close to the max recommended with high EP numbers/high ratio for best resolution and to deter any attempts at 3d nonsense but its not happening. still ending up with twice the recommended throw. probabley maiden next sunday.
whats a t-can?

T-wing Canalizer or whatever QQ or CPLR calls them. Helps stablize the airflow over the canopy area and direct it over the tail feathers more smoothly and evenly.
