My recently built GWS Formosa II flight


I've got GWS Formosa II EPO kit last December and I put together recently.

And this is my 1st Formosa.

Today is the 11th flight and it was with Exceed RC Rocket 3025-1130Kv(170g), GWS HD 10x6 3-blade propeller, Emax BLHeli 60A ESC and Turnigy 3s 2200mAh 35C. AUW 1008g.
Wth this combination, power looks good and Formosa II can do large loops now.

The following is today's flight.

GWS Formosa II Flight - March 9th 2017 (2 min 53 sec)


It flies excellent !

What did you guys use to glue the fuse halves together? I was going to use 60 minute epoxy so I would have extra time to mix more if needed but I can`t find any. I thought about just plain tiebond or gorilla glue.. I`m just not sure how much overflow I would get with the gorilla glue.

If you have the tube of glue supplied with the kit, use that. Apply the glue fairly sparingly, fit the parts together and pull them apart a few times. The glue will become stringy and set a lot faster.

Anyone find a 3 blade spinner that works in the Formosa with the stock power set-up?
