Not yet. Been tied up with other things at the moment. Hopefully soon.

Once you have assembled the fuselage area and not glue the top motor mount, thing should be easier.

You need to hot glue the flat motor mount (#2) to the vertical motor mount (#1) first to the fuselage assembly. Then get your motor screwed onto the hardwood / plywood. Once both parts are ready, hot glue them both to the fuselage end.

Hopefully the image attached could help you out.

Thanks for your answer

Waiting another great airplane designed by you

First of all, what a beautiful design! And now my question. Is this aircraft easy to fly for a beginner?

Thanks for the compliment. However, this baby does not suit for beginner. Very agile, responsive in every input given.. you need to at least been able to fly a low wing trainer to start with.

But then, it is an easy build.. why not give it a try

Would this work as an elevon setup?

Hi jpot1, if you want to use elevon, you need to have a separate elevator for the setup . To me, normal setup is far enough already.

The maiden flight went pretty well. For whatever reason when I plugged my battery in the elevator servo was has fits. This settled down after a short bit and then was not a problem. I suspect a dirty wiper on the potentiometer. Anyway, I flew with a 1300 mAh 3s battery and had to have it fully aft as far as I could get it to balance per specification. Checked control surface directions, all checked. Held it by the wing tip and gave it a toss with about half throttle. She flew straight away, but I did have to hold some up elevator. After a couple of circuits, I retrimmed the elevator for a steady level and somewhat slower flight for indoors. Then landed. I added 75% expo to tame the ailerons down a bit, but should reduce that to about 50%. It was a little too soft at 75%.

The plane looks really great in the air and is very stable in all axes. Mine has rudder control and I tested it for yaw roll coupling, which it did have. Left rudder induced a left roll and conversely right rudder induced a right roll.

I kept having problems with my esc and at one point it seemed like I lost control and had to fly over the flight line into a safety net. This caused it to fall and damage the elevator and one wingtip. All easily repairable.

Looking forward to more flights and now it is worthy of a paint job.

Glad to hear the flight was good even with the problems.....uh, where's the video?
I really hate electrical problems, I had a servo locking in the up position on an elevon just this morning on a new build.....good thing I ran it through enough testing before getting in the air.

I did not have a video helper yesterday.

I'm not sure if the motor could handle the 4S.. a local friend once told me that 2200mah 3S is the maximum for it. Would like to know how it flew with your setup.
Those 2826 2200kv motors can absolutely handle 4S setups. Thats the standard motor used in almost all jets over at rcpowers.com, and many build them to 4S power setups for crazy power. I stick to 3S 2200 mah batts for my parkflyer jets. They suit my jets perfectly.
