Wilga 2000 EPO 950mm from HK - What a "perfect" plane!


A small airplane in size but big on benefits and no less amazing!
I built in 3-4 days with all these changes that can be conferred on the photos below.
I was very impressed with the quality of finish and really liked the landing gear and flaps factory. Not lost hours and hours doing these at least two parties ...
The airplane is my smallest to FPV and decided by a camera of 420 lines without audio but took the nanomicrofone I had saved and installed.
I used a FatShark power lead connector with filter to balance lead from the battery and powered the camera and transmitter this way, so it was very practical.
Anyway, amazing finish, great for FPV flight and low cost! Easy 15 minutes with a 1800mAh 2S LiPo battery. Great ability to stol.

Hi,

If you can, I would like to ask you to post a video from the camera, when you get a chance to fly it.

I have the same plane and always wanted to do FPV.

Yes, I did it As you said, it is a "perfect" small plane with many many space.

I put TX, APM 2.5 inside and fix a 2S 2200 mAh and keychain camera outside, it works like a charm.

Hey,

I was thinking of getting this plane as a trainer to teach myself to fly! Looks like it would be good for learning yet could also do simple loops and roles, etc. Also was thinking once i get better i could get some larger tyres and do some bush flying!

Do yous think it would be good or better than say a trainstar or yak 12??? The main gear looks a bit weak to me (especially the plastic link part), how would it handle harder landings? i would hate to have them snap of on the first hard landing.

Thanks

Phil

@rolrossi, Can you help me with the motor mount angle.

I got the PNP version of this Wilga and the motor-shaft angle and nose-cowl looked crooked.
I looked at the pictures you posted... so wanted to inquire...what is your final motor angle?

Thanks in advance.
