Here's my plank, next to my first trex 700N (may she R.I.P.-I augered it in at the field last summer, since rekitted with another 700N tho). It's a gasser - rotax 912 100hp. With the current prop cruises about 85 to 90mph with an endurance of about 3 hours (15 gals of gas).
It's a good FPV platform and radio setup was real easy ...

""Is it me or does that wing have an anhedral""

it's you LOL
someone asked me that years ago, so I put a Straight Edge on it, it was Straight,,

the problem with that Wing is there is no Shear Webbing, the Tips of the Wing flex terribly

BTW, I did not build this plane, I bought it with only 1 flight on it..

Did you check to see if it was supposed to have a dihedral on it? I have yet to see a low wing airplane with no dihedral.

it's Blue Prints were converted from the Fullsize Prints, the Fullsize Wing is flat,, so my new Wing will have a bit of Dihedral,,

BTW, the Fullsize crashed..

the way mine flew>> if the Right Wing dropped a bit the whole Plane would fall to the Right,, if the Left Wing dropped a bit the Plane would fall to the Left,, if it hit a Head Wind the Nose would Drop,, if it had a Tail Wind the Nose would rise,,

then, when coming in to land the Plane would pull bad to the Left, I found later when searching "Engine Thrust" this problem was do to no Right Thrust in the Engine

Just got this last night.

Traded my (clone 450) for it.


I'm not going to try and fly it for a long time. Building a couple trianer first. Got one new in box, and one crashed I traded for. Just ordered balsa and stuff to repair the old trainer.

Hey I got a E-flite power 32 770kv will this work in a trainer? I think they are both 40 size. I got a prop adapter with it but it looks way to big. The instructions says for 50 series motor.
Anyone got one for a 32 adapter that needs a 50 adapter? Lets swop.
