travel for the real deal was 55 degrees flaps,but I am sure that a lot less would work(like around 40)...even less.as you want to maintain flow,to generate lift,on a small wing

The control aerodynamics are worth studying,for few of them are readily apparent. Double-slotted, high-lift flaps are lowered to a maximumof 50 deg.They extend out to the wing fences,outboard of which is a fixed leading-edge camber.

Default Caribou

Hii all,

Just today i purchased Caribou from CY models.
Also i plannig to add saito FG11~14~17 (Use CW &CCW spec) power.
Which engine the best fit for this model?
Any way, guess FG21 is perfect power weight ratio but caribou cowrlng is not so large for this power plant.
i'm wondering....lol.

Best Regards,
K.Tanabe from Japan

try to weigh all the parts in the box,then remove the box,weigh the box.The resultant weight is the weight of your plane(my guess around 10 lbs,or 4 kilo) then add the weight of your servos batteries, fuel tanks and engines,to give you a rough idea.(maybe 16 to 17 lbs) Then go for the ideal power .

go electric g62 turnigy.Take a side on foto,of the nacelle,scale it.then add a side on photo of the engine,scaled.You will see if it is dooable.Usually the head is too big.
