Is the sky scooter a slow flyer?


Would you guys call it a slow flyer? what is its stall speed and top speed? What do you think is the slowest you could fly?

Thanks,
Alex

Motors beat engines!
stall is around 13 and top speed around 20 stock. You can slow it down around 15 or so, but what for? Much more fun at higher speeds.
In my book, its way to fast to be a slow flyer.

No, it's not a slow flyer but it glides real well without any power.

Put a Gearbox & a 10x4.7 Slowflyer prop on it & she'll fly pretty slow but a real slowflyer? probably not.

I'll tell you why, I held up my sons new Teddy wing, wow , the Teddy has almost twice the wing area, hence more drag/lift & slower flying.
I am about to enter the world of slow flight by buying a Litestick, I have a small field in back of my house that I fly my Sky Scooter in but the Scooter takes the WHOLE field & then some to fly, the litestick should be a better fit for flying there & for $26 you can't beat the deal.
