Jitterbug Review Live in E Zone!


https://www.rcgroups.com/links/index.php?id=4407

Martin Hunter brings us the Jitterbug!

https://www.rcgroups.com/links/index.php?id=4407

"Throughout the past few years, parkflyer aircraft have been exploding in popularity. This is largely due to advances in technology, both in the area of electronics and kit design. Despite these advancements, one niche has remained open a full house aerobatic parkflyer biplane. In what started as an entrant into an RCGroups design contest, the Jitterbug has grown to fill this gap. Along with combining the grace and aerobatic prowess of the pre-war designs such as the Bucker Jungmann, the Jitterbug also incorporates rather simple construction and a forgiving nature. "

ENJOY!


Sincerely,
Mrs. AnnMarie Cross

Very well done, I thought.


I thought Martin did an excellent job in the review. I was hoping for a little more detail on his modification, but I think I get the idea.

I can't wait to get mine finished now.

Thanks, Joe. Let me know what more you need on the servo mod and I can take more pictures (covering on, of course).

Thanks Martin, but I think I got the jist of it. Actually, what I think you did and what I am doing is very similar. The only real difference is that your servos are exposed on the bottom of the bottom wing. Mine will still be concealed inside the fuse (hopefully).

Keep us posted on how you do your mod Joe.

I have a Jitterbug in mind and would probably go with the two servos in one wing with links.

Just for the fun of it, here's a new video, only this time it's onboard. I realize at 31 mb it's large but more compression compromised too much of the quality, in my opinion. Enjoy
