My guess is not many at all. It's designed for RET, ailerons are't entirely effective or needed on this type of airfoil.

Well I'm using a super Tigre .10 in mine just because that the only motor I had close to what would have been needed. And as for battery use what you got.

So on another not I managed to get flaperons on the wing. Now I just have to take it out for a test flight and see how the plane acts and so some trimming out before I go away with it to the cottage to fly off te water.

Battery: 2 pieces 800 mah 3 S batteries in parallel
(bird was somewhat tail heavy ... so insted of adding lead we decided to add a second battery pack)

Maiden flight was successful without any major problems. Minor adjustments of motor thrust angle will be required.

Kind regards from .DE
Nice covering job. What did you use?

Quick question!

What foam thickness is recommended for this build!?

Can't wait to start building this beauty!

Scale!?!?


When it comes to the scale of the model, I was wondering if reducing the plans to 94% of original would make any difference. I was forced to do this as I don't have PDF sized paper, and so the plans had to be reduced to 94% of original size to fit on A4 (210 mm x 297 mm) paper.

I calculated that I'll loose about 7 cm of wing span.

Should I just overlook this and use my 94% plans!

Thanks for any response... I know this is an old thread, so any response at all is really appreciated!

Thanks NZ RC! Now I'm just waiting for Monday to come, so that I can go hunting for some Depron 6mm. Depron should work ... right?

On the plans they have used credit cards for some kind of support at certain locations, is this necessary, I don't quite understand why these are used :S.

I created the model in Google Sketch Up.


I made a copy of the model in Google Sketch Up 8, here are some photos. I'll see if I can upload the file for those that are interested.

All parts of the plane should be to scale.

For the floats I used these plans: http://flyinglindy.homestead.com/files/Flt05.jpg

no problem, yep i think depron will work great, the credit cards are used to stop the spars which hold the rubberbands on from cutting through the foam (because they are being pulled from the rubberbands) i just used a peice of plastic from a icecream container but you could use some balsa wood or anything similar realy. hope this helps
