Seagull's Percival Mew Gull
I've just got my Mew Gull.
Nice kit,excellent covering,and good metal hardware,although the tires are woefull!!.I'll see what the innards are like with the build.....A bit of advice,don't believe Seagull's version of the C of G......do your own calculations and balance it at the wing roots,not the wing tips,again don't trust SG's given measurement.
Bummer! I had intended to fit a RCG 26cc sparky,but even with a rear carby,and wrap around muffler there's really no room for it with that skinny cowl.
In hindsight,the sparky may have made it very nose heavy anyway.As I'm moving away from methanol fuel,(the price here in Aust. is ridiculous!),I have decided on going for my first real big lekkie set up.I've had foamies and elec gliders before,but always stuck to the oilies for my bigger planes.
I've chosen a Turnigy 50 65 270kv with a Turnigy SHV5-125 Sentilon 100amp speedy,and Turnigy 5000mAh 4s battery packs (x2).
Prop size,I'll start with a 50x10 and see what happens.I've been told this power set up will throw an 18x8 prop.We'll see.
Ive posted some pics of the build so far.Hope you like.
