Time to make a new wing ( assemble )


Wing of choice is the Spirit 600mm from Banggood ..
This will be my 2nd Spirit 600 ..
The first was made more robustly with 9g servos and a larger motor ( 18 something ? )
And a heavy 3ch car Rx
And it needs some weight in the nose to balance things out .. ( Larger battery )

So hopefully the 2nd time around I can do it better :

This time I am going with the 1306 - 4000KV motor ( small - light )
Also a much smaller lighter ESC ( not sure 6A is enough - will see )
Also the servos this time will be 3.7g
And I will be using a Redcon 6ch Rx ( very light )
This will hopefully allow for the use of a small 2s like a 250 -300mAh battery ..
The goal on this build is to go light .. This should allow for much slower flight speed / glide better as well ..
I know , less weight will mean less tolerance to wind ..
But I really want a slow wing ( compact for easy deployment )

Just two ...

Rainbow 2 ( 1 meter ) and Spirit 600 ...
Rainbow two flies slow - Spirit 600 flies fast ..
Hence the 2nd go at a spirit 600 ..
I want to try and slow it down = Build it lighter ... Just waiting on some ESC ...

I want to get the ESC / motor combo sorted out first ..
After that the build should be very fast , especially as I know where to CG ..
Assembling the spirit 600 is very easy , and its relatively robust .

The lighter you build one , the slower you can fly it .
Plus the $$ value is insane .. ( Very cheap way to RC )
