This is my new wing retention fix.


I did not really want to do it like this but it looks like it holds better......

NOTE I am going to mount control horns on the wood. Servos in the fuselage.

This video is me sloping the 707 off a k rail in a parking lot.
Maybe 7 mph of wind and the breeze was a bit sideways to the rail

I have one of these still in the box, in storage. Planning on making it a rudder/elevator/motor glider, with the motor up front with a folding prop. Still not sure what power setup to use. Definitely a 2S lipo, but other than that, I don't know. Any suggestions?

I just finished my battery.

Picture later....

2 AAA 280 mah LiFe

This fits well and plugs right into the receiver.


Next I have to install servos and linkage and then I am done.

I have having too much fun with other pitcherons right now........

Battery pack

My current pack has two 280 mah AAA LiFe cells.

Might not be heavy enough!
