Revision: I got the paint stick installed and am flying it with a C motor, 40amp esc and 4S 1500. It takes off of grass and is quite aerobatic. I did actually manage a loop, and it flies rock-solid in wind. Haven’t had it on water yet, but it’s greatly improved with a wooden wing spar. Downside is that I lost most of the dihedral! We’ll see if that matters when I get it on the water. I will wait for an extremely calm day.
After a dozen or so more flights, I am delighted with this design! Flies great in wind and bad weather! Doesn't really like inverted flight, but it's faster and more stable that I would have ever thought! This is a true weather beater and is a welcome addition to anyone's home squadron of Flite Test planes.
Thank you Flight Test! xoxo
I'll give an update to this after I fly it but I must say, as far as a foam and hot glue plane, this thing is really solid.
I'd would like to see a better video of this plane flying from the awesome Flight Test crew. The first flight didn't go so well, nor the second. You guys are flippin hilarious, keep it up, keep it fun, and keep it family friendly. I'm working with a youth group in town and I'd like to get them involved with planes, and other RC related fun and I don't hesitate to the Flight Test website.
Love you guys and gals.
