I just ordered one, can’t wait to get building! I’m almost done with a glh I made the wing two ribs longer and the fuse 3in longer. I added a lot of carbon to the wing. I’m running a 500 heli motor on 6s with a 7x8 prop around 2200 watts!

On the glh 250 I’m going to do a f80 motor on 6s 1000 then try 8s 800mah
50a esc. I will post pictures as I build and videos when it’s done!

Here are some pictures of the 6s 500 heli motor glh

Wing ribs are cut in half on the size to thin down the wing. The wing is also glued to the fuse and filled in.

Hey Jeff,

I must tell you the I did not design the GLH 250 for that kind of power setup. As is, structurally it will not handle those kind of loads at the speeds possible with your proposed power set up. I'm sure you already knew that and have plans to heavily modify to accommodate.

With that said.... Wow! Can't wait to see that one! Video PLEASE!

Sincerely,
Doug and Becky

Hey Doug,

I already know I’m going to have to add carbon to the wing. I’m going to modify accordingly as I build as I do with every airplane I am known to overpower everything way too much power.

I thought about building a smaller version of the glh then I seen yours on rcg and ordered immediately! I will order a few more kits just so I have back ups.

I will post pictures as I build and videos when it’s done. I ordered all the electronics last night to get to building as soon as my kit arrives.

Elevator servo and wing servo sheeting installed. Ply wing mount and dowel epoxied in place.

She's ready for covering, which will happen once I get the "Suitcase Series" birds sanded and prepped for covering.

Thanks Doug!

Not yet, I'm still designing in my head while working on another new 'Suitcase Series' 1/4A plane. I hope to unveil it tomorrow. Lots of sanding and prep work on four planes now. I hate this part....but it is, what it is!
