I acquired this Giles 202 and have purchased a DLE 111 for it. The plane has on the wings Ultimate Charger II and built by Dr. R Suding. I did some digging and found some information but would like to find some more. I found an article from 1999 in
Farm flyers rc about Dr. Suding and know he invented and developed the Ultimate Charger. I will post pics as I go but here is what I am starting with.

F3A EUROPA PRO composite body airplane.
Produced in Europe using top quality German made epoxy resin and glass/carbon fiber.
This professional EUROPA PRO is the result of 23 years experience in F3A world and his research in best F3A performances. This innovative design combined with the extremely lightweight structure, the full composite fuselage, wings and stabs, give the EUROPA PRO an impressive precision and smoothness at any airspeed and flight condition.
The plane is a total novelty: the new fuselage is wider and wing area lower;

The EUROPA PRO is the most economical version of this high performance F3A plane. As you can see the whole hard ware and high quality electronics including batteries are available, the plane after assembly had 5 flights in total, 3 of them was for trimming the angle of attack of the wings and other two just for pleasure.
The reason I am sealing this beauty is because I start flying Large Viper XL turbo jet and to be honest I lost interests for propeller propulsion, so for time being my EUROPA PRO collecting dust in my work shop. Once this plane was built/molded and design the color scheme I install the most expensive equipment on it as you can see.
Here is the ruffle real price of the hard ware:
Motor: AXY gold line 6kg to 8kg +/- 500$
ESC: Castle 100A (new version) +/- 120$
Servos: Hyperion (10kg-16kg) +/- 200$
Power Box: Gemini II +/- 150$
Board Batteries: Power box 1500A two of each +/- 220$
Main Batteries : Turnigy 5000A two of each by 4C +/- 140$
The Body: +/- 2000$
APC prop with carbon cowl: +/-80$
Custom made protective transportation covers: +/- 100$
And the small hard ware parts like hinges, titanium linkages and etc I am not tacking in to account.

Wing Span - 1870 mm Length - 1980 mm Wing area - 60 dm Flyweight - 4850-4950 g
All together 2000$ + shipment
If someone is interested, please contact me on [email protected]
Regarding the shipment I need to find out depended where it goes.

To find the plans for the starer bench shown in my Avatar just do a search on this website "starter bench plans."

That bench will be good for planes with engines up to around 30cc.

For the larger aircraft, like 1/4 scale types, just do a search on "large starter bench plans."

The plane on the bench is a Great Planes Giant Super Sportster, 82" wing and DLE 35 cc gas engine.

Here is a video everyone. This is the Edge V3. My plane is almost a year old now and still flying great. This has the torque vectoring motor mount which is controlled by the rudder servo. Cool plane. Very acrobatic and fun to fly. Enjoy

The Xracer Quadrant BLHeli ESC from FPV Model does something that you may have never seen before. It lets you decide whether to install it on the quadcopter's arms, as usual, or you can combine the ESCs into a 4-in-1 board that fits in a 36mm stack. The ESC takes up to 6S, runs BLHeli_S, supports up to DSHOT600, and costs only $12.99, so... WHAT MORE COULD YOU ASK FOR???


Features of X-Racer Quadrant:

1. Can be installed separately on the arms, or 4 ESCs installed together like a PCB under the flight controller.
2. Powered by high performance EFM8BB21 MCU.
3. Flashed with BLHeli_S program. It supports multishot/one shot42/oneshot125.
4. Dshot150/Dshot300/Dshot600 Compatible.
5. With 25AMp constant RMS, 30A max.
6. Designed to support 4-6s Lipo, but work well with 3S also.
7. Only 2.5 grams each piece and 10 grams for a set of 4 pieces.

Being a self proclaimed "home for wayward Brison 3.2's", I came across these people that said they had some:
That really surprised me so I asked about them and what was available. In response you get this very polite and very much Chinese email back about how many do you want?
Anybody ever had any dealings with them?

Enjoyed hanging out with the fine folk at the Thunderbirds flying field in the Fort Worth area today! Traveling the country as a corporate pilot has afforded me the privilege to meet many neat people along the way
