Cheetah Chuck glider RC'ed


Cheetah Glider (10 min 3 sec)


Must be almost 2 years ago I converted this one . And never did a video ! Maybe because the maiden was as windy as all and shortly after launching it the wind gusted the Cheetah into a tree !

I have a telescopic pole about 5 meters long and I had to go home and get it so I could knock the Cheetah out of the tree .

It does not like a lot of wind , being all mild mannered and all .

With a Zippy 350 in the rear battery compartment CG looks to be good . Flight time looks to be good .

TX RC system - Is from my Joyways Crash Invader ( pictured ) It's mode 1 and very iffy !
But in the Cheetah glider it works ok . There was no way I could fly the Invader ( crash invader ) with that Tx .
So some changes were made ( new Rx / brushed ESC ) and it flies .

So I had a Tx and Rx needing to be used in something , so the Cheetah RC glider came to exist .
So there we go , it works . Some tweaking still needed .

A) Fit the battery better .
B) Improve the motor cooling more
