RE: New 2011 Electric Jump Plane
Here are some pictures of the underneath of the Kadet. The cavity in front of the landing gear is for the speed control and battery pack. The cavity aft of the landing gear is for the diver. We can fit either one 6 cell pack or 2 three cell packs from end to end the way this is setup. We did this purposely to provide plenty of air flow over the motor, speed control, and battery.
We got a chance to maiden the plane the other night. The plane takes off at below half throttle and will go vertical, picking up speed, at wide open. Not bad for an 8 lb airplane on electric! Next time out we are taking the brand new Hangtime Ultimate Golden Knight we have, complete with internal flag drop on command.
