thanks. Bill

Has it flown yet Martin? My Vickers Varsity flew two weeks ago and the big DH Foxmoth flew over the weekend. The small DH Hornet Moth had not flown yet as I could not get the four stroke to start.

flew it this morning landed after 7 min 30 on a 4s 3200. Tried my 4s 3900 , a bit nose heavy, but flew ok. prop was a apce 13 x 8 Bill

Amazing fun really as you can pick up the magnatilla   and puppeteer airframes for less than £100. Mine was £35!!!!

mag2.jpgI still find it amazing that about 28 years ago I had this electric magnatilla with a maxim brushless motor. It weighed 8 Lbs with 17x2000 nicad cells and a 3:1 superbox turning a 14 x10 Master wood prop.. Now i get better performance, and much lighter!!!, on a 4s lipo. Might put another rear gunner on mine

20181109_143628.jpgHi, Not very pretty but I fit the battery though a hole in the front bulkhead and fit a wedge to secure it. Connect the red wire then connect the black when ready to fly. Battery was a 4s 3200 and it appeared to balance in the right place. Flew fine. Now I know it works I will tidy up the installation and may even fit a hatch to the front compartment underneath.
