Dynamic Foamy X32 Test Model


Here are pics of my Dynamic Foamy X32 Test model.

As you can see I added a lot of CF reinforcement to strenghten it up as I fully intend to put it through its paces. Plus some was added for looks

I also used F86 guts throughout including LG that is removable, and I have even add steerable nose wheel. I used 1mm depron for thrust tube..

It weighs 38 grams dry; my F86 weighted 67 near its end.

I also intend to try with 3S as well.

With almost 1/2 the weight gone it should fly just awsome! Fingers crossed and best wishes! Please let us know how it goes!

Re 29

Are you using a straight 30mm thrust tube or are you reducing it's output end?

...and, although I cannot attest to this fact for Re29, my somewhat edumacated guess is that the amount is most likely in the neighborhood of 85% FSA

If you're looking to buy one check the classifieds. There are several listed for sale at what I guess are decent prices. Less than MSR.

here it is

maiden flight of the X32.

Was damn cold today and windy but I went again with maiden.

It flew well for the first time, a little tail heavy as expected but flew well nonetheless

Miadened without LG as its rough surface now at field.

It fles alot like the sabre I found, especially when coming out of a turn and needing a lot of elevator.

This is only a test model and changes a likely to happen.

Its pretty quick, faster than the F86 I think. This flight was with 240 hyperion, and I'll try 3S next flight.

End of vid I made an oopsey when landing and damaged nose a little but its all fixed up now.

Added a little more more depron to reinforce.


hope you enjoy video
