Foam Slow Flyer Project


I have been lurking on this forums for quite a while. I am building a large foamy slow flyer. Wingspan 6' with V-Tail and pusher prop. I will mount a 3 axis gimbal and camera so I can look around at the ground below.

Here is the list of the electronics I spec'd for this build.
30A BEC ESC
X2212 980KV brushless motor
5200mAh 3S 10C LIPO
1145 Prop
9G Servos
FlySky FS-i6 Transmitter
FlySky FS-iA6 Reciever

Does this sound right?

Your motor might be a bit small, and lipo bigger than needed. Looking it up, i saw 180 watts, 56 gram. While the kv sounds right for a big slow flyer, the 6' span may want a higher wattage motor. I fly my 7' wing with Banggood DYS D2830-8 1300kv, 52gm 275 watt brushless
Prop: APC style 8x6 and a 2200 mah 3s lipo. You can get a feel for the speed from the video, but remember the wing is a slippery, low drag shape. https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show...g-MPF-and-wood

Will this plane be used for learning to fly an RC plane for the very first time ?
If so , do you have an experienced RC flyer who can help you ?

Is this plane being built from plans for an existing proven design , or is it completely self-designed ?
