Recommend 1100mm electric sport plane


Hi,

Can anyone recommend an sport plane like the Phoenix scanner but in 1100mm size and Epo foam is my preference?

The closest I can think of is the Eflite T28 Trojan 1100.
Flite characteristics should be very similar.
They are both tricycle landing gear. They both have substantial wing dihedral.

Floza, in that case, you may like the FMS Explorer. Its only got a 1020 mm wing. But the fuselage is 1100 mm long, so it is actually a pretty
big airplane. Bigger overall than most 1100 wingspan models.

Its designed to be a smooth but responsive sport plane and capable aerobatic trainer. I was involved in the prototype testing and it has been one of my favorites since.

This is the thread here on RCG:

This plane is very sensitive, so you have to dial in generous expos as described in the first post of that thread. The first post also recommended CoG at 90-95 mm behind the wing leading edge at the root. That is way too nose heavy, in my opinion. I recommend 110mm +/-5mm to start with.

Then move CoG rearward to 125mm once you've settled in the trims. She will really step up in performance.

It may help to read through the entire thread, its only 21 pages.

Hi,

E-Flite Valiant 1.3.

Hands down, the best flying 3S foamy in this size.
