"I passed on the kool-aid"

Freedom 20...

Always kind of had a liking for this plane and the mirage 550 as well. Construction went together pretty quickly and easily in a couple evenings time. I am still looking at power systems and have a few minor details to wrap up before flying. I was a bit worried about the weight of the ply fuse so I took the dremel to it in a few places but surprisingly it came out pretty light considering it is designed for glow.

"I passed on the kool-aid"

Tried a couple of different power systems with it

including a power 25 on 3S with an 11x8.5. Surprisingly it had plenty of power even on 3S. I then put a scorpion outrunner in it (1050kv) that is roughly the same size as the torqe 2818-900. More than enough power and will easily climb to almost full vertical on a 3S pack. The plane has an extremely good glide rate and will slow down very well. It is relaxing to fly and looks halfway decent in the air.

Very nice papasmurf, I built one of these about 10 years ago when I was in the Marines, but I never flew it for some reason, cant remember why exactly. I always thought it was a nice looking plane.

Thanks for sharing it with us, Im actually building a 167% Q-Tee right now to electricfy using a 3s 3250mah pack, so I may start with some of your power suggestions as this model will be similarly sized at 60" wingspan, 45inches long, about 3 lbs AUW.
