RiteWing Mini Demon Project - Quest for Ballistic / Clean Handling Mini Wing!
Just wanted to share a quick update on a project that Chris and I will be working on together in the near future. After working with Chris and buying a Demon from him recently and having such a good outcome, I approached Chris with an idea for a power system on a Mini Demon, to see if he wanted to build a wing for it. Here's an overview of the power system:
Motor: Razor 400
Pack: TP1320-3S Pro Lite
Prop: Graupner CAM 100X80mm
Bench testing of this setup shows 12.5 oz thrust, and 160 watts of power. If we can keep the wing AUW around 8-9 oz, the watts/lb and vertical performance should be killer, and hoping for speeds of about 100 level and 110+ in a moderate dive.
The main goal is to achieve a wing that performs and tracks as well as Chris's high-powered Demon full-size wings, without the usual nervous handling that super-fast mini wings tend to have.
More to follow from either Chris or myself as this unfolds, regardless of the outcome...
The attached file shows the bench test performance of the power system in terms of thrust vs. input current, while stepping throttle position from 0-100% in 10% increments.
