Shark, cod are indeed around under a completely different name.

Still get great service from them.

I use them for most of my radio gear. And lots more besides.

See, now I have seen the Micro Blitz...

I think I need to build one of them as well.

I did intend to honest.

Just did not bother in the end. Fly's fine with no issue's.

Looking good there Ken.


Colour scheme reminds me of my Mini Roo.

Nice to see my Mini Blitz in this month's magazine.


Though I think a better picture rather than my messy workshop one. wink

I glued and then covered.

Nice straight edge against the fuselage side, tack down each end and the middle and go from there.

Worked for me.

AUW 374g

Pleased with that.

Just got back from flying and after 3 flights mine is finally trimmed out. Zero wind allowing for some really smooth big manovers.

Mine also resides at the rear. gives a slightly nose down attitude at the indicated CofG. I think I may add a small amount of church roof to the rear.


Maybee a 1300 pack weighing a bit more might sort the CofG better.

Yes just make another F1 as I did.


You can see it in this picture.

Thanks John.

Maiden donethumbs up

A few clicks of right and a couple of up was all that was needed. Not ballistic but enough to fly nicely. I think an ASP prop would be better suited to this model.

With my setup it was pulling 125 watts on a fresh battery, so that equates to about 12amps.

With a 30 amp ESC there is plenty of room for experimentation.


17/12/2017 18:36:13

Due to unforeseen circumstances (a hangover following works Xmas partyembarrassed) the maiden has been delayed.


16/12/2017 18:25:07

I hope to do the maiden tomorrow.

Weather permitting of course.


12/12/2017 17:50:44

Called into work today due to staff shortage.

Looks like no day off for me this weeksad.

Will check wattage drawn as soon as i am able and update accordingly.


11/12/2017 20:53:07

I will try to get it into the garden tomorrow and put it on my watt meter and get a few readings.

The prop is a cheap HK one, so not probably as good as an APC.


11/12/2017 17:43:07

Yes that is a 7x4 on there at the moment. 3S 1000mHa

Should go OK, although I confess to knowing very little about electric set ups.
