Scratchbuilt balsa hotliner


I just finished this and it has a 24 inch wing span, 10 gram 2000kv motor, 330 mah 3 cell lipo, one 5 gram servo, 3.6 gram servo, and a 6 amp esc. It weighs 4.0 ounces and flies fast, I just flew it today in a 25 mph wind with gusts to 33 mph.

Looks pretty sweet

What 10 gram motor did you use?

How thick is balaa ect?

Also

Is there any incidence between the wing and tail OR are they level with Each other?

It is a Blue Wonder motor, and the balsa is a sheet of 1/10 inch balsa, The tail and the wing are level with each other, and I sanded an airfoil on the wing.

This is the "Foamies (Scratchbuilt)" forum. You may get more interest/responce over in the High Performance forum. You can ask the moderator to move it for you.

Handles great when turning into the wind and with the wind, never got to fly it in wind under 15mph. It realy gets moving fast with a 25 mph wind, probably about 70 mph.
