this plan came to me via an online magazine I subscribe to and as it ticked a few boxes for me, Cheap, slow and retro and an indoor flyer I just had to attempt it

My build article and more photo's here

chimera pre-maiden_04.jpg

She is approx 30 inch wingspan, 4oz all up weight 3channel with a 5300kv fiageo motor driving a 9x6 prop through a 9.66:1 reduction gearbox, this gives approx 18w in a static test.

The maiden is yet to take place but it does look promising

More will be posted as soon as she is maidened in the meantime any questions please ask
