my guess was bang on the number - just out on the units!

Just a bit out from your initial guess then  :laugh: What kind of frame do you fly with?

Hi Guys,

With the night drawing in, I have decided to start a little project to build a small airplane for indoor/outdoor flight. Im going to use the first port for a parts list just encase anyone else is interested and I will reserve the second post for a build log  :smiley:

receiver servo ESC board that uses the FlySky protocol (Need to bind everytime at poer on)

Im using a Taranis, so I have ordered the following JR module

Propeller with gears

Motor with cog fitted
http://www.banggood.com/WLtoys-F929-F939-13-Motor-with-Gear-Spare-Part-p-930767.html

I';m planning on using 3mm depron for the frame with 1mm carbon rods to reinforce the foam where needed.

I have built a flying wing before, but nothing else plane related, so any advice is welcome.

After doing a number of Micro types, after stripping some Actuall Spektrum ones down, then using the parts to make one, personally i would now go with a small Brushless motor instead, if you look around, there are some great little motors.

also, i would use 2mm depron over 3mm, 3mm was just a little to much, still, does depend a little on your wing loading, But the ones with 2mm were fine.

I am planning on building something larger with a brushless motor as I have spare 1806 2280kv motors, the plan with this plane is a small slow flyer so my 5 year old can learn using it.

I';ve looked at smaller brushless motors but havn';t found any reasonably price mini ESC';s other than ones that are over kill for a small plane.

Yes, If a slowflyer , especially if mainly indoors, definatetly go for 2mm Depron :)

Or you could also do a build similar to this :) https://www.elitemodelsonline.co.uk/Products/Aircraft/Aircraft-Spares/Electric-Aircraft-Spares/eRC-Plane-Spares/Micro-Stik

If you';re really interested in micro models here is one of the best places I know:

There is everything you need to build a really nice model there, I';ve built a Puddlebug and had great fun with it!

Cheers Darrell, this is more of a budget build to see how I get on. I do like the look of some of the part they sell on there though  ::)

They are really nicely made and fit together very well, the hardest part is covering them until you get the hang of it!

Now just for the maiden flight

wow that';s pretty damn cool!

looks quite fragile, hope the maiden goes well.

Point and click.

Monkey see, Monkey do.

That';s cute, looks a bit like a PZ Vapour Biplane ::) ::) ::)
Hope you';re flying it indoors, anything more than a gnats f4rt outdoors and you would loose it!

Thanks for the kind comments.

Yeah its pretty fragile, it';s solely indented an indoor flyer for my 5 year old son to learn to fly/fix  :laugh:
