Default ECOMRC Wilga 89" 26-36 cc

Well decided to have a go at a Wilga

Must admit when I saw the pics it didnt do anything for me but after seeing it a Westen Park I liked it.

So some pics of the kit.

Going with a DLE 30cc

There is a thread on RCG about this Wilga. You might want to check it out if you have not already as there is some good input on what to look out for. Love this plane. Happy flying.

Well she is now finished and ready to test fly

I have not needed any weight at the front to get CofG

All went together just fine, I must say that I have never had windows fit so snug as these have .

I have changed a little on the Elevator push rod, I have not gone with the supplied dowl but installed a Carbon push rod and installed a guide half way down to support it.

I have changed the supplied wheels and replaced with 5" Dupro.

I have tested the motor and there seems to be ample power. I have not weighed her yet but I think is about 15-16 Lbs but will do later.

Some photos at the field and the inside.

I have already been approched to sell her to a chap in the club and she's not even been in the air yet.
Cheers

Thanks for the video. I enjoyed that. Did you have to add much nose weight with the DLE 30? Brian

Well she was test flown last night

Can't beleive how great she flys and so arobatic. There was three of us playing with her, Ian, Stuy and me.

Dle 30cc is a good combination, Ian was prop hanging her

This is a plane that you can have some fun with

Did you not have to add any nose weight with the DLE 30 up front? Troy Built Models told me my heavier G38 would be perfect and it weighs way more than a DLE 30. I'm wanting one for sure now after seeing yours. Brian

Hi Brian,

No added weight at all.

On the bulk head I have the Ing Unit and a 5 cell AA Batt pack. Behind the bulkhead I have 3 AA 5 cell Packs 1 for RX and 2 for Serveos.

I can tell you Brian on the 30cc she flys great on a 18x8 loads of power. Took off with 1/2 throttle. She can fly very slow with 1/2 flaps and without. She is very aerobatic as well. Witch the Rudder she can be sharp so I used about 35% expo.

Anything else just ask.
