Your guess is better than mine. Total static thrust to weight should be over 1.5 to 1 for great performance.

Thank you. He must be very light to fly so slow. Enjoy.

So many things to build... well the slab is getting poured in a few days and i will have a new 34 X 46 shop... so many things on the side lines to get built.. now i have the room to finish my 4 X 4 cnc router...i'm seeing that getting the building built is only 1/4 of it... wireing.. shelveing.. benches.. a/c & heating.. the list goes on & on.

That is a REALITY show fer sure.
After my shop was built I lost 10 lbs last summer paneling and wiring and painting
and building shelves and tables and painting and then moving my CNC from the garage
to the new shop, and then insulating and doing the ceiling.
With the Shop fridge filled with Beer I've gained back the 10#.

Plane/Model storage is my biggest challenge now.

Thanks for the hard work Otto


Here is my latest V3. Set up includes; new power 17 gram digitals with metal gears with a pull- pull setup with 65# braided fishing line, Turnigy 25 amp speed controls, Propdrive 28-30 1100kv with carbon 10x5 props, Spectrum receiver, and Parkzone wheels.
I built it out of mpf foam and it is very ridged with out being brittle. I did use Depron for the feet and corner gussets.
After I get the CG fully worked out I will fully detail him with the airbrush and he will have a 3D head that will be vacuum formed out of PETG then a light foam structure underneath.

You've been busy ! He should have all sorts of vertical capability. Want video when you get him and Harry flying.
