Easy build and it's been a marathon edit, but here is my very detailed build blog for a Lidl cheapo foam glider twin-engined power rc conversion. AUW 260 gms with 1000mA 2s. As yet unflown due to weather, but seems enough power there and CoG is good, so we will see? It looks nice anyway Subscribe to see the (hopefully successful?) maiden! You might take me to the 5K subscribers on my channel

Very good Bonzo, it should really shift with two motors, is there no end to what these little aeroplanes are capable of? laugh

Thanks Cliff. I'll be happy if it flies! But yes, I think with two of those little motors there should be enough power. Wish the weather would improve, I have 3 new builds ready to maiden now!

Successful maiden (eventually   of my TWIN engined cheapo Lidl (£8) glider RC conversion. (Actually the Wish version of the glider. Same thing really.) After a bit of trimming it was flying like a dream. I set up the props contra-rotating but it was pulling very hard left as you can see in the video. At first I thought maybe my matched motors weren't pulling with equal power, but then realised if that was the case, when it was powered off and gliding having trimmed it right it would then be pulling the other way. Might just be that an £8 foam glider has a few twists though it looks pretty true? At the end of the day, I don't care, it was great to fly! The twin build video, parts list etc are all listed on the video.
