Very nice battery tray. Is the front of the tray tabbed into the former that the receiver sits on?...is that how the front of the tray is held in place?
Sounds like with a lighter setup, I can put the rudder on a pull pull....and possibly the elevator. Is the elevator halves connected or are they seperate?
I could also make a battery box right under the motor box....which would have (2) 4S 4000mah more forward than your batteries....might help not having to add lead weight....thx for the pics.

14s 180mah should be enough...

Skyjet, those pictures look real familiar

I have seen Skyjet's setup on 12s and it is insane. My recently acquired Rascal 110 will have a Power 160 equivalent on 10s. Hoping for a maiden this weekend.

The motor I am using is here and I am using the Electrifly Silver Series 80amp HV speed control.

RX battery is in the same place described by Skyjet

The elevator is one piece. Yes! The battery tray slides under a tab at the back of the tray and is held in place in the front with 2 4-40 screws. With the new one there will be two more servos for the flaps too. I'm guessing that they will be located just aft of the CG.

I can't wait for the maiden report! I think your are going to have great set-up. I can't wait for Randy Covington! How many electric Rascal 110's do you think we will have up there next year?

Believe it or not our club is going float flying tomorrow at our Christmas party.

Well, 4 for sure, and possibly 5. It will be a Rascal event for sure!

skyjet,

Nice video. Your Rascal flys really nice and has a lot of power. That's the setup I'd like to have for 3D. I hope my new Rascal and engine comes in during the Christmas holidays so I'll have something to work on. I'm also hoping the new manufacture of the Rascal 110 do it wright and don't try and go light on the woods as others have.

Possibly five? You think Grampa Tony will have his by then?

I too, would like to make a Rascal Fly-In....but first I need one (or two, or three). If one happens in Indiana that would be within range.

My 72" Rascal does FPV flying on a regular basis.

Cheers!

Edwin, I have a picture of your Rascal saved in my Rascal folder. I have a killer color scheme in mind for my next recover. I love to see other peoples Rascals when they have recovered away from the stock job. None of my Rascals have flaps, so that may be a good enough reason to update them to another color.
What size prop are you running on your 1.60
Mine will swing an 18/6 MA with no problem and has tons more power than any 120 4S out there.

Keep your eye on the "Fuel Power Events" forum as we may be putting on another Rascal 110 fly-in in 2012.

I'm running a 16-10 Beila. I have run 18-6 props in the past, but my engines seem to like the 16-10 the best. I have three OS 1.60's and they all run close to the same.

Well, Sig took my Visa number last week.....it's strange hoping to see a big increase on the card balance.

I too, am very interested to hear from veteren R110 builders and their opinions on the new build vs. the old build. Has anybody else had their card debited yet?

Also, for the gas fliers that fly with wheels, is the old version difficult to get down with residual power? Presumably the flaps will help add drag. My 72" version I imagine would be hard to slow if it wasn't electric.

Cheers!

Congratulations, this is the nicest Rascal I have seen. This thing is sweet. Ones we get new shipment I will recover one and add floats.
