Best. Wing. Ever.

It builds quickly (hence the name "Speed Built") but you have to have a LARGE build table. Be careful the bottom of the wing is perfectly flat, too... my build table wasn't quite flat. I added retracts, and fabbed up twin rudders mounted mid-wing in back of the pods (didn't like the wingtip rudders much) Flies fantastic! Low passes are awesome! Something about that giant wing "swooshing" by that just can't be beat...

Great Experimental Platform/Gorgeous Flight Characteristics!

I invested in a lot of high end yet affordable fpv equipment and I plan on flying this plane off of solar power. It flies very beautifully and it feels so much lighter than those smaller wings that are so much more dense. I did not calibrate the esc's before my maiden flight which did make takeoffs quite unpredictable but I think this model could almost cruise around with one of the motors doing all the work! Knowing that this would be re-purposed for endurance and solar power use, I bought a Titan Flight 7.0AH Lithium Ion battery pack in order to save whatever weight I could while still increasing the capacity. This wing is so efficient that even with the 10A max continuous current with my endurance pack it flew wonderfully while still having plenty of power for takeoff. It just floats around. Overall, I had a lot of fun building and flying a plane so huge (in fact the biggest plane I've ever built and flown) and it was definitely kind of addicting! Normally I stray away from large airplanes as you either have the easily warping epp or eps foam or you have to spend a ton of money on balsa wood! This airplane provides a happy medium between the two and is amazingly precise for a foam plane!
