A small challenge: Can you in 1 hour or less..

Last week a friend of mine while talking joked I could most likely build a delta pretty fast, after it stuck in my mind.. how long would it take me?

Because I was using UHU por for it's durability there are 10 minute gap pauses which brought my total build time to about 60 minutes.

Below you can see my video, compressed into 3 minutes lol. The delta:

50CM span
33CM long
Turnigy 12A plush ESC + Turnigy 1650KV motor
2S Rhino 610mAh
2 * Turnigy 1440A servos
FrSky 4 channel fasst receiver
AUW - 120 grams

Not had weather to maiden her yet, but what can you build in an hour?

Give it a go I'm really interested too see

1 hour to RTF Depron deltawing from scratch (3 min 1 sec)

Maiden flight today, Had to improvise on the field, the tail was not big enough and flat spinned twice lol, I used a beer mat from inside the club shed I found to extend it, worked a charm

Thank you

Version 2 is already being built, not a 1 hour thing but an improvement on the original design using some ideas and tricks of my own.

(Taking many photos step by step for building your own , creating project page and posting here this time)

A little preview below will show the crazy plans intended for it:

My projects on my site are HTML and I'm not converted it all to BBcode it'll take forever and a day. I've attached some images but the main project link can be found below with full step by step photo guide how I built version 2.

and all becomes clear, Hello FrSky

I made a comment on it, little joke hehe. It's true though on my sites a good 80% of RC projects involve FrSky RX and is shown in pictures, photos and if I remember (lol) I link products. Nice work, I'm looking to get a 6 channel FrSky for the next Delta
