Klingon Battle Cruiser


I got a chance to fly this during lunch today, rocket glider of course, Dave was there to see it fly, flew great, it's a floater, super docile, 11 oz rtf, 24" wingspan, 29" long....Made almost entirely out of Model plane foam, with a single 24mm cardboard tube that stretches the length of the model for motor mount and stiffness. I couldn't do the front bottom of the bridge bulbous because the guide rail slides along the bottom of the model so it had to stay flat, but I captures the essence I think.

That is very cool. The only question is how it will do pylon racing.

I took one of my grayson microjet V-3 motors, a talon 15 esc and mounted those on the underside of the rocket glider, mounted a venom 3s 800mah pack under the wing at the LE and the thing flies great. Required another 1/2 ounce of nose weight for CG which is 1/4" further forward than I use for rocket launch. RTF weight is 14 oz, handled the wind very well.
