EPP Plank Maiden, Flight, ESC Expires


Epp Plank finally flies. It flies fast considering it has a slowfly prop and tiny 2206/1400kv motor. It is heavy, 450 grams and I have to really heave it to get it into the air and then it sort of fights its way up. Way under powered plane but great once it gets going. Unfortunately I had a tiny ESC on it and it was too much at full throttle. Plane doesn't really land, it just kind of falls out of the sky onto the ground. But built Ford tough. Looking forward to getting this one up to speed. It sounds kind of cool because one end of the wing is open. Also replaced crooked control rods with stronger straight ones cause they were bending - that's why it ended up in a tree. Got it down with a 5 meter bamboo pole.
See if you can hear when the ESC gives up the ghost.
