Mine was the first one built as you all know so the parts kit was just thrown together.
Thomas always has great parts kits with everything you need so the production ones will be well sorted.
I used 2 KST x08s on the ailerons and 2 Emax 9051s on the rudder ele.
my CG is close to 68mm
total weight on mine was 156 grams.
Flying impressions.....
It Launches.....And I mean LAUNCHES.
I didn't give it the wood till later in the contest .Then later I was whip cracking it hard,(It doesn't care one bit)
floats amazing
travels awesome
Now lets explain the wing . It looks big . It is big and there is a reason for it ......BALLAST...This little plane will take 60 to 90 grams of ballast for the wind and still perform. Try that with one of the little winged planes out there.
I swear to you that I would not hesitate to use the Deviant as my backup in 1.5 contest(ITS THAT GOOD)
Video coming this weekend

We have quite a few made already and more made everyday, no worries on wings/fuse/tails, but I want to check the fit on all the small parts (tray, horns, etc). I'm waiting for my models to arrive, once they do I will give the OK for the planes to start shipping to customers.

I'll start sending out invoices to you guys this week as we're getting quite close now.

Thanks!

What is your methodology for your wing and airfoil design? Do you guy's make a lot of prototypes or do you do everything mostly in the computer? Do you use XFLR5?

Your Go Mini seemed like it had incredible float characteristics.

Hi Robert,
You can find Thomas's Go-Mini design criteria in his first post, i.e. based on Vibe airfoils.
https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show...16&postcount=1

You can probably go back to the Vibe and find more baseline logic there.

Hi RHX138, we do most of the work in XFLR5, some of it is through testing and empirical data, and some of it is just experience from all the other models we have released so far. The GO Mini floated well but more importantly carried weight well when conditions get tough.
