    RE: Cermark Ultimate

    More Pix.

    The build is straight forward. I made some changes:

    Top wing -3.5 deg neg if I glued cabaine in stock pos. I set it to -1.25 to -1.5 deg neg.

    put bigger wheels 2"

    painted spinner , gear and inner-planer struts orange, missed the shade

    went to bigger motor than cermark recomend.

    no instructions on bat. mounting; my method 2-56 screws~blind nut in front.

    RE: Cermark Ultimate

    Thanx for posting on this plane. Had my eye on it for a while. Looks fantastic. Great job. What is your set-up? Is there a stick mount optoin for motor mounting or is it firewall only? What is the weight? Been looking at this or the e-flite ulimate fx. Want something that flys pretty light and looks scale for a small park down the road from my house. Thanx

    Good job.

    Could I use a TP 1320 there?

    Thanks,

    RE: Cermark Ultimate

    I would like to answer some of the questions. Thx for the kind words.

    Got a chance to fly. WAY nose heavy. put bat all way back and still a little nose heavy.

    The plane flies "HEAVY". It flies in wind when foamys can't, but don't get it to slow. . . or else

    Looks better in person than pix. flies kinda' fast for a small field.

    holds a line good for a little plane, forget the 3d throws, snaps to easy with a lot of elev.

    Rudd is VERY effective, the scale Ultimate does not have counter balance, this does, watch rudder throw.

    A lot of people like the looks , it seems VERY STURDY, good quality, over engineered and a little heavy for wing area.

    I will work with it more,

    My setup

    HS 65HB x 4 SERVO'S
    PHX 25 controller
    APC 10x5 E
    Park Flier Radio Spectrum
    Cellpro 2100 3S1P Li-po

    RE: Cermark New Electric Ultimate 10-300

    Paul:

    I would think a lighter batt would be better. The motor I chose would be to big for that batt.

    RE: Cermark New Electric Ultimate 10-300

    Morepower,
    Thanks for the build post. I saw this plane at my LHS and almost bought it on inpulse. I still might buy one because it is so beautiful. My idea is to use a Hacker A20-20L (2 oz) and a TP 1320 battery which would save quite a bit of weight. My experience with these small planes is that a 3 or 4 oz of savings totally changes the flying characterstics. I understand that your setup is for speed, but a lightweight setup could work well also.

    What is the wing span and AUW? And how does it knife edge?

    RE: Cermark New Electric Ultimate 10-300

    Well I couldn't decide. It was a tough decision, so I bought both. It is amazing the differences between the two side by side. Actually they are both well built. I will wait til next week to get servos and such. I am catching up tonight on all the electric options.

    RE: Cermark Ultimate

    Morpower,

    Just curious as to how you measured the incidence angles that tightly. Its been awhile for me on building this stuff so I need a little re-education. How did you mount it and so on to get all your angles calibrated.

    Thanks

    Terry

    RE: Cermark New Electric Ultimate 10-300

    Couple of things to note on an out of the box comparison of the Cermark Ultimate vs the Fliton Rogue.

    The Cermark has a Nice canopy already cut with a pilot inside. The rogue has a lexan canopy that needs considerable and precise cutting to fit onto the cockpit.

    The Cermark cowl has the holes cut for the engine as well as the cooling inlets already done. It is all nicely painted as well.
    The Rogue is very nicely painted but none of the holes are cut out. I am sure this is for choosing whatever powerplant you want later.

    The coating on both was good but the Cermark need no touchups and the Fliton needed quite a bit done the the fusalage.

    The instructions for the Cermark are short and sweet with photographs. Since there isn't much to do here it isn't very long.
    The instructions for the Fliton are nice but have no drawings and assume the builder has some building experience.

    I will try to post later on some more progress.

    If this is the wrong place to be let me know. There are so many forums I have no clue but to follow someone else's lead.

    Thanks

    Terry

    RE: Cermark New Electric Ultimate 10-300

    I just built and flew one of these and it flew terrible. extremly nose heavy, and needed a lot of speed to land power off dropped like a brick. the aileron setup with the tork rods and supplied hardware is terrible, the ailerons had a lot of binding and wouldn't center after an hour messing with them, weight was 29.25 oz with mysetup.

    Having said that here was my setup:

    TP 2100Mha 3 cell
    eflight 480 outrunner
    12x6
    40a ESC

    The reason it flew so poorly was 2 reasons, extremly heavy setup and verry nose heavy

    The plane is absoutly beautiful

    Here is what I will be doing to make it fly better
    swith to a eflie 400 outrunner saves 1.1 oz(in the nose)
    Switch to a 910 Mha TP Battery saves 2.61 oz (in the nose)
    20A eflite speed control(saves .2oz)
    Cut the aileron torque rods off and move the servos to the bottom of the bottom wing

    This will save 4oz in the nose and get the ailerons working better should bring the weight down to 25oz and make it less nose heavy. I hope to have a more favorable report after these mods.
    when inverted down=up and up=$$
