    RE: FILTON Rogue 3D Bipe ARF

    R3d,
    Thanks for the post on where you ordered your Rougue. It is a great site. Gonna cost me more money.
    After I asked you where you ordered it, I found it listed at Esprit Model down in Florida. Ordered mine there.
    Thanks again,

    Bob R in Nashville

    Once you get one flying, please let us know how it flys, and post video's too if possible. I want to see what it can do.

    RE: FILTON Rogue 3D Bipe ARF

    I would also like to here about how it flies. The build thread in RCGroups indicates weight and balancing problems. So it would be good to here from someone else.

    I received mine Rogue yesterday. Very nicely built airplane. Haven't decided on a motor yet. Really like the purple that they put on the airplane.

    There is a CG problem with this plane, goto RCGROUPS and read the two threads.

    RE: FILTON Rogue 3D Bipe ARF

    There is an addendum in the kit refering to the corrected CG. Nicely built kit.

    RE: FILTON Rogue 3D Bipe ARF

    Flew my Rogue for the first time, yesterday. I'm running a Himax 2808-890. What a dissappointment. It flies the plane, but that's all. Way underpowered. Himax claims it will hover a 25 oz. plane. Not so. I have the 2100 3 cell Lipo right up against the firewall. It is still a little tail heavy. I thought I would try it there and see how it handled. It might have been ok with enough power, but really sucked with the low power. I landed it after about 4 minutes due to the lack of power. I got home. pulled out the Himax and ordered an AXI 2808-24. That should do the job. I love the looks of the plane and am sure it will be great with the power change. It will also move my CG to where it should be. This is a beautifully built airplane.

    I just started my Rogue (life is busy right now) and I too chose the AXI 2808/24. Have you made the conversion yet? There is a vid posted on the other site of the rogue flying with that motor, looks sweet.

    Let me know if you change your motor out and I will post my first flight with pics as soon as i can get the time to fly..

    RE: FILTON Rogue 3D Bipe ARF

    hello zi-chun Lin

    The 2808-24 is a perfect motor for this plane in my opinion. The thrust to go vertical is abundant, and I did not have to counter balance any weight to the tail, in fact, I run the TP2100-3c Lipo's right up against the firewall to achieve a CG that is optimal for pattern/sport flying. If I want to do more 3d type maneuver's, I just adjust the placement of the battery back about 2 inches toward the gear and it locks into any high aspect maneuver. Upright harriers are a little tricky in that there is some very quick wing rock, inverted are more stable, but the transition to a hover is very quick, so I don't really notice it. The 2808-24 will pull the plane out of a hover with authority, i recommend using a Electric APC prop, somewhere in the 11/6 or 10/5 range. I use a APC E-11/6 and i get great performance while not increasing speed too much during regular sport flying. The 3d guys might want to move you toward a 12/4.7 or a 13/3.5 but i think that just makes more noise and you get less efficiency.

    Good luck!
