WOOHOO and as the name suggests this is a hole lot of fun to fly smiley

Bit of RX sorting and a few clicks of trim (my rubbish building skills) and it was tearing around the sky, yet I could back it off to 1/4 throttle for a couple of low passes. Then back to business with what its best at!

Thanks go to Iain at IAD for ultra prompt service, great support and a kit that was a real pleasure to whiz together.

Other thanks to George at 4-Max for the electric set up, spot on.

Next Phase ?

After a very very long absence and one sport plane under my belt, I fancied a Phase 5E, but wanted to build my own. I set off to add a few mods and drew up a Pod & Boom fuselage, but managed to blag a 'Project 80 ?' fuselage from a club bring and buy for a fiver ! This matched up well, so I grafted the Phase 5 tail feathers into the boom and added some stubs to enable the wings to be 2 piece, with carbon rod joiners. While on the wings I reinforced the spar with carbon, added extended curved LE wingtips and 4x servos. Power is a 3548 Thumper pulling 670 amps with 11 x 7 prop and 4S. Alternatively the spinner can be replaced by the original nosecone held on with magnets for Sloping. All sounds pretty straightforward, but has taken me ages, especially full house programming on Open TX !. Just need to build up courage for a Maiden now - Bit wary about the thrust line and incidence of the tail plane - I've visions of a launch and it powering straight into the deck - any advice for a first launch ?

Nice job and coloration.. Well done... I will start building my first glider too.. With no flight experience I am afraid I m not qualified to give any advice.. Good luck with your maiden.

That looks a nice glider DaveB1. I struggled with open TX on my glider until I discovered this site. It might be a bit late for you but there is a lot of information here Link. Hope you find it useful.

Thanks JM, yes that OpenTX clinic is great. Their info and setups jump from pretty simple to very complex, so I spent the time learning from them but building a setup from scratch to understand it more - trouble is it's quickly forgotten.

A couple of shots of the underside but the iPhone has difficulty in rendering true colours when there is a dark background to contend with, the lettering is actually the same orange as the topside of the 'plane, not yellow as it appears to show here!
