Default Mini Delta (like stryker...only tiny)

This is one cool plane for 25 bucks. It comes with the motor installed and ready for servo's, rx and esc/battery. I am running a 600mah 3s lipo in it. I just balanced it and am ready to maiden.

Oh yeah and I added 51 cents to the nose to balance it....lol.

watch the video! This little thing should scream pretty good. I noticed they dropped the price from a low price to an even lower price.

Well I just got home from the maiden. It was fun but kind of sluggish. It's auw is 6.9oz. I tried to go lighter but could not. I think it is bl time for this one. The hot melt glue that keeps the motor in the fuse melted and the motor fell out........hmmmm. I am going to make a motor mount and put a small bl in there. It was pretty fast for it's size and maneuvered well. It could use stiffer elevons.....maybe wooden. I am going to order another one to start the build up on. Het for 22.00 bucks I think it is worth it. I will keep you's posted.

That plane is begging to be copied using p/styrene with tape covering (a la Zagi!!!) - cost about $4 for enough foam to make 3- Balsa elevons etc and as you say a bigger/brushless motor or just go lipo, esc /motor permitting. Yum Yum. Now lets see, Raptor, Mig, Mirage etc or whayever!! Where's my hobby box?[>:]

Well I flew it with a 3s lipo and gave it all she had but it was not enough for me. It's design would be harder to dub than a zagi. The nose sticks out pretty far and is shaped a bit different than any other I have seen. I will beef the crap out of the one I just ordered and see what happens.....who knows there may be a dark side to this one too.....hehe.
