2018 First Flights
« on: January 08, 2018, 10:31:54 AM »

Been a bit quiet recently and not much flying done, but managed out yesterday for a few hours in the cold sun! Was perfect conditions, flat calm! Flew the mini Drak and Flyingwings Genesis. Have got the Genesis pretty dialled in now and added a bit of winglet 'toe out' which seems to have killed the wag which is good!

Quick edit, need to work on formation flying, always ends up looking miles away!

Cheers! I'm going to do a review video to talk about it, but the main mods were:

  • adding a load of extra sparring, I used strip spars cut into the foam as they really add strength
  • Cut vertical stabilisers from correx, copying the Ritewing HC series style
  • Added a few degrees 'toe-out' to the wingtips, and made smaller correx winglets as the originals are huge and made it really susceptible to cross winds

I'll go into more detail when I do the video, hoping to get it shot soon! I wanted to wait until I had plenty of footage.

Setup wise I'm running a 1400kV NTM V2 2836 motor with an 8x5 prop, it's got plenty of power, launches easily and tops out about 120km/h. I've got a 40A ESC (draws about 25A full throttle).
Cruise is about 10A, and I'm running it with a 3000mah 4S so it's good for 10-15 minute flight times. I could probably go a bit bigger battery though as I need 2 runcams in the nose to balance it (one facing forward, one back).
