I changed my mind and decided to finnish her off.

She's almsot ready to fly! I just need to add the ESC and wait for the rest of the epoxy to set!

I will fly her very soon!

Hey guys


I did fly it. With my motor/batteries is was severly under powerd, and since i have no funds to buy a proper power system for it, if anyone local wan'ts it there most welcome to have it.


It would pretty much do a powerd glide into the ground. It handeled nicely, but my set-up is to weak to fly it.

Im useing:

180 size motor, EPS 300 C gears
Home made gearbox
7 cell 200 mah nicad
10x4.7 prop.

I built the same plane but I think mine is a little bigger. I flew he once with a Electric Goldmine surplus G4046 motor with a home made 6 to 1 ratio gea box and 3 Li Po batteries.

Then I used a home made twin IPS C ratio motor with a 10x4.7 prop and 3 E-tec Li Po cells.

It flies great with plenty of vertical.

Hey Thomas,
what size batteries do you have? Are they all nicads? What motors do you have laying around?
