After initial trimming and better balancing the 20" is going very well. after the last session the only adjustment needed is an increase in the down thrust ...
I have altered the colours to mostly orange.. a flying buddy is flying a V2 quasar which had a similar yellow orange scheme..
seen in the pic are a few different sized quasars v3.... they all go so well.

My PP1 has been crossed with a Quasar3D..designation Qv4Xpp1

Basically I flattened the pp1 wing and put on a slightly deeper quasar body.. and made it scaled up to a 21" span..

Also trying out a new 6mm Diall XPS insulation board from our local B&Q.. I found it in the buildings section /insulation..
Its cost effective at 13.74 for 8 sheets, its very similar to depron.. 3mm 6mm and 9mm
The build used one sheet with plenty left over.. also used was some scraps of EPP.. for the nose block and U/C legs .. Thin ply for the motor mount.. laminating film at the front for strength and tape for colour

The finished model comes in at 227gms AUW with a 500 rhino lipo
AUW 8.1oz.... area 3.386 sqft... loading 2.365ozsqft.. a nice low wing loading

specs Gartt 2204-1800.. 3x tgy1440a servos.. 12A esc.. 8x4.3 bangood dys SF prop.. made from 6mm XPS sheets

I have just given the updated Gymball and PP1xQv4 their maiden flights..both went well..
In comparison testing the Quasar v2 or v3 and now the PP1 cross remain my preferred models..

The big PP1 has been converted to the Quasar shape
I couldn't flatten its wing so it still has the central dihedral and its power setup
wing loading now at 7.2ozsqft....33.6oz AUW with a 2200 3s

latest indoor videos .... 3 quasar variations flying plus the PP1 cross with quasar fuzz.
All are going very well... the PP1 cross is the slowest, with a lower wing loading.. it seems to be slightly better in the hover... in all other aspects it is very much the same......

New motor on offer from Banggood, a racerstar 2304-1850. which gives good vertical on 2s with 8oz models
I bought 2, then tried them out, then bought 2 more... lol.. also bought 20 more of the 8x4.3 black SF props(10 for 4.14)
which will keep me going for a while... the props fit the motor perfectly..
