Hi kinemax!

manual tells that it shall be 133mm beyond LE of rib18 because of F3RES regulations.
This position is also correct for the plywood-pipes and is responsible for the very uncomplicated flight characteristics.
Modifications can be done after a number of flights with two small additional plywood parts. This parts lead to a little better flight-performance by causing a little less forgiving flight-behavior (stall comes later but more intensive). I will send some pictures tomorrow.
In my opinion only experienced res-dart pilots are able to use this slightly better performance and i think that most pilots benefit more by using the unmodified wing tips.

kind regards

Thank you - this explains my doubts. I'm also interested in this additional mods for future playing, but of course I must learn res-dart first...
Yet another question for e-Res version: What motors parameters are recommended for it ?
I consider making flexible e-fuse with possibility of mounting motor either front or back for tests...

Can't find 38mm spinner for 3 mm motor shaft

The spinner i use is from aeronaut and the diameter is 38 mm (length 36,5).

kind regards


Where did you find your spinner? I ordered the motor suggested on the Hyper flight web site but it has a 3mm shaft and I cannot find a 38mm spinner that accepts a 3mm motor shaft.

I have ordered from Aloft several times and have received my orders very quickly.

Scratch Built E-RES-Dart Fuselage

I tried flying my RES-Dart on a high start at the SMALL 2017 Meet a few weeks ago and had some fun but found it too much work and not enough flying. The maintenance to flight ratio for using a glider on a high start compared to the rest of my electric powered models is way out of wack. It takes far too much time to set up and use and take down a high start compared to the tiny effort of charging a motor battery and opening up the throttle. This experience made me decide that my RES-Dart was going to join the rest of my fleet with modern green electric power. Just think how much more fun a Tesla is with electric power than without.

Here is the beginning of my scratch built E-RES-Dart fuselage based on the one described in the RES-Dart Construction Manual V 2.3. It is made of 3mm light plywood and uses the BB-Turbo Spinner and prop blades described in my previous post. The bulkheads are different from the manual. The motor is a Hacker A20-26M that I had on hand. I will leave the tail end of the fuselage open for motor, ESC, and battery cooling. More pictures to come.

More Pile-it than Pilot

Do you feel like the motor/esc/battery weigh about the same as the weight you had to add in the non-motorized version?

Or do you think you will have to move the battery back towards the CG or more to get it to balance the same as the non-motorized version?

I did a preliminary check and it looks like the 850 ma 3 cell I am using will be a little ahead of the CG. With the motor, prop, ESC, and a receiver it almost balances. I'm going to use a long hatch piece that goes from the behind the top piece to a little behind the rear wing pin. The business with all the little hatch holes was just too annoying.
