Excited to get these out again so you can show the ARF pilots how bad they are missing out!
This model is outstanding on any 400 class outrunner in the 980-1300 KV Range, 3S packs from 700-1300. Think of props from 8-4 to 9-6 depending on KV. 70 to 170 watts is the right range. The model is strong and roomy enough for 300 watts if your desire are of the insane variety.
My favorite setups so far:
Himax 2816-1220, 9-4.5 prop, 3S 1300 Kypom 35C K6 series. Around 19 amps, about 240 watts.
Himax 2812-650, 9-4.5 prop, 5S RRC or Kypom 450. Less than 10 amps! About 165 watts and super effiecient.
GWS 003 Outrunner, 8-6 prop, 3S 600-1300 size 3S pack.
Many systems will work well here. This model is a supurb sport aircraft, probably the best I have ever designed. I know it's going to become the most popular kit we've ever made. Kit comes with both Sport and Stick type flying surface options. Push button wing release, space frame formers/doublers, one or two servo ailerons and simple zip tie on landing gear are standard features.
This model is everything you expect a Stick to be and everything you expect in a Radical RC kit. Construction is fully interlocking and completely self jigging. It is actually possible to build 90% of the kit prior to applying any adhesive. In fact, most of the assembly is squeezing together friction fit -n- tab self jigged assemblies and applying thin CA sparingly at the conclusion of each assembly. Fit is so good, only the most minimal amount of sanding is needed prior to finish application.
Model is designed specifically for E-power. Predrilled firewalls are included as are blank firewalls and a more short nose mounting location if you want to go 1/2 A glow. And, it's not needed since you finished glow flying weight will be about 14-16oz on glow. Model is expected to finish 13-18oz. One of my samples weighs in at 16oz. the other at 17oz. Normal weights for high performance sport aircraft with these capabilities and landing gear is 24oz or more.
Instructions include complete breakdown on motor system choices and theory for this model. Because it's so light weight, you can have a legitimate 2S system here. Our prototypes are flying on 3S (foreground) and 5S (background).
Model is built with conventional 1 or 2 servo - 2 aileron wing. May be upgraded to 3D surfaces with our optional 3D Surface Kits. With 3D Surface Kit you can run 2 servo big ailerons or 4 servo split aileron/flaperon combo. Expanded surface for elevator and rudder included as in photo. Note, the 3D Surfaces Kit only works with the "Sport" Vertical Stab.
