After the "first" flights
Made my Gloster Gladiator ready for first flight 14 days ago.
First flight went pretty well on a stadium with flow lights in
a temperature below zero (Celsius). Landing gear snapped off
of course ... bad workmanship (me).
Later I flew a second flight without the landing gear on a
grass field. In the part dakness I hit a fence and broke the
front fuselage (crashing a Depron plane on tarmac road is
Repaired and reinforced the front fuselage and had some
realy pleasant flights today. The plane is a bit nose heavy
but for me that's fine. I was afraid it would be the oposite.
It's now 200g as I was afraid of but to my surprise it's
flying like a dream. Slow flights no problem I'm using a
Brushless: Nippy N29 Silver - 7A172 approx 24g
Prop: GWS 7035 (7 x 3.5)
LiPo: Hyperion LCL 3S 26C Pack - 350mah weight 37g
LiPo: Hextronik 460mah weight 42g
ESC: Some 12A weight 10g
Servos: 4 off 4.7g
RX: Wfly 6ch 10g
The roll rate is low since it has scale size ailerons.
A drawing will be published as soon as I got the
reinforcements updated and outfitting sketched in.
