Volume determines weight. to keep ppower to weight the same find the volume increase.

1.41 x 1.41 x 1.41 is approx 2.7.

So 2.7 times original power. As a starting point.

Martin, double power looks more like a 2 5% increase?

This one is definitely going on the build list. Might fit a couple of superbright LED’s to help with visibility. Perhaps red and green (port and starboard) in a strip on leading edge. Hmmm so many ideas.

Nice to see you back at the building board Kenny. I notice you’ve went down the same route as me, putting in an extra rib to slot fins in between yes

I’m getting well on with my micro blitz but haven’t took any recent pics. The servos are in and I’ve just finished the top hatch. It’s secured with a tongue at the front and is held at the back by earth magnets. Next is to start covering it and then tape on elevens and connect to servos before I can glue the rear deck on.

I also bought enough wood to make the mini so will start that soon too.

Starting to get somewhere. Did a crap covering job. I slightly widened the fuse so I can get my sausage fingers in there, leaving very little would exposed to stick the covering to. 20/20 Hindsight, I shouldn't have done that, or should've made the wing center board wider. Oh well, she'l pass the 7 foot rule...bl13.jpg

I got all my wood for both the micro and mini from Phill’s models Ken. I even cheated for the elevens as I bought pre shaped aileron strip and just cut it down to the correct size. The motor and esc for the micro I already had and for the mini I’m going to use the motor that came with my radjet that I never used.

Agreed Ken, nice and simple yet plenty of scope for a little customisation if the urge takes.

My progress so far -

6

The fins are still removable and I will decide weather to leave them like that or permanently glue them in after I cover it. Hatch has a tongue at front and earth magnets at the rear, Servo arms will come out of the holes in fuz side and be made to measure wire with Z bends at both ends.

As mentioned in previous post when I make the mini I’m going to use the stock motor from a radjet that I never used. Probablys with a 5x5 prop or their abouts on 3s 1300.

Ken can you remember the power figures from your radjet? I know you had standard motor on 3s but what prop and watts/amps did it produce?
