NiceSky DHC2 Beaver Maiden


NiceSky DHC2 Beaver (6 min 21 sec)

What a nerve racking maiden .. The beaver really wanted to nose plant the ground while rolling left .
It took all my trim to get it to fly level . Mine came VIA banggood , and apparently they no longer sell it !

Rates were 100% ,
Aileron had 60% Expo
Elevator had 50% Expo
Rudder had 50% Expo

Power to weight is better than 1:1 .. ( Mine pulls 16A at full throttle )
I havent weighed it yet , but think superkinetic ..
After I came home the battery was 53% ..
I had enough elevator to land the beaver with near or zero throttle ,

As I was flying I was reducing throttle . While struggling to trim for level flight and while trying to keep the Beaver off the ground .
Once trimmed out the beaver was very easy to fly . Hell , I even managed to land it !
Not sure , did I get down to around 33% throttle ? and it flew ok . I did get it to fly relatively slow without tip stalling it and doing a XK into the ground .
Nothing to repair , thats got to be good .

FLYING Weight = Around 280 grams , so not a light weight micro .
Airframe = 230ish grams
Battery = 50ish grams

As soon as I saw "EPS" I took my hand off my wallet on this one!
Nice to see you got it down in 1 piece.
