#Ruddy flying wings#
« on: April 15, 2018, 09:15:28 »
So i am building, nearly finished a Skywalker X5 1180 wing, it has gone fairly well so far, now we are at the stage of getting right lipo for CG.....point blank i WILL NOT buy any more potential fire bombs, so i am trying my eclectic collection of lipo`s and the only one that fits, just  and gives CG is the 3000mah zippy..........so looks like i am going to have to add luggage to the front, at least it will give me 6 packs to go at doing it this way, or maybe carve some foam from the hatch and parallel a pair in it, if i can find my connector!
will be running 2212 1400kv, 8x4 prop 30 amp HK blue esc and Eagle tree guardian (when it arrives)<br /><br />

If it only takes a small amount of forward shift in the battery to get balance it might be worth carving the  batt bay out and gorilla gluing some thin ply to reinforce it . Fine tuning the C.O.G. with small pieces of lead under the batt.

If you’ve got any mini quad batteries you can always parallel one of those.
