New Mini Arrow V.6 (self designed)!
Here are some pics of my newest plane, a mini "Arrow V.6", (designed in correspondence with fellow member "Not Free").
The plane is designed entirely after the Donatas Designs Arrow V.6.
Here are some links:
I decided to try Thrust Vector on this plane, so I picked up some ball links from my LHS, made a motor mount and attached the motor. The only inconvenience was that I had to cross the rudder pushrod through the fuselage, so that the Trust Vector unit and rudder work in unison.
Motor: HK 9 gram
Servos: Aileron: S60 Rudder: Hex 500 Elevator: HK 1.9 gram
Speed Control: Plush 6
Receiver: HK 2 gram DSM2
Battery: HK 2s 260mah
I am very happy with this setup!
EDIT: AUW 85 grams(a little heavier than I would like)
I maidened it last Saturday, it was VERY responsive and maneuverable, I need to work out some knife edge problems. The Trust Vector is fun.
I will try to get a vid soon.
P.S. PM for specs.
I have one too (made first :haha: ) but one of the motor wires came off
HobbyKing (at least they are cheap, but the shipping, ) (I meant, that HobbyKing has its pros and cons)
I am using the same setup, except that I think that I am going to upgrade to a RimFire 200
Have a good one,
