lightweight Jeckel

The New Jeckel has flown and has been finished in camouflage. After the test flight we modified it by fitting an undercarraige as the cost of cr props would make it an expensive model to land . It is lighter and still retains the same motors as the earlier versions . We fitted this model with differential throttles as we did not fit rudders to this one after several flights and problems we have fitted conventional rudders and removed the differential throttles the rudder servo has been fitted to the taiplane and an extension cable routed to the receiver .
This model also had a KFM 2 wing instead of my usual clarke Y section . The disadvantage was the transfers , these were difficult to make as they cover the step. The wires to the booms fitted in the front section of the section.
This version has a shorter tail moment than the earlier pair and a 5 inch longer wingspan. More photos are posted in the Jackal thread.
This version weighed 750 gms now with the bigger battery pack to balance the servo at the tail it weighs about 900gms .
