40" Ultralight built from a ole Mini Pleaser kit.


I recently found a old mini Pleaser arf on ebay and pulled the trigger on it as I was wanting to use up some K&S tubing I had laying around. After a couple of quiet evenings in my shop this awesome little flyer has evolved.

It weighs just under 15oz. with the battery installed ready to fly. It flies excellent and very slow looking very scale-like in the sky.

It does not have a steerable nosewheel but has enought rudder authority to steer when taking off or when power is applied.

The motor is a Blue Wonder with 15a esc. I used Hitec HS55 servos and a Spectrum AR6110E for guidance.

The kingpost is carbon fiber and flying wires are made of black beading cord found at any craft store. I had no plans for this one, just a dremel tool and a vision. Enjoy~
