    RE: Planes for a VPP 4D Flying

    I don't know what motor RJ Gritter was using at ETOC but a good plane for a VPP setup would be and Electrifly Flatouts series plane and Electriflys VPP setup. It comes with motor and a template for the servo cutout. Alls you need is another servo to operate the prop pitch. My only problem with the Flatouts series is the hinging system with the carbon fiber rods and snap hinges. Get rid of it bevel the surfaces and use hinge tape.

    RE: Planes for a VPP 4D Flying

    I bought the VPP setup and found it to be a POS. The servo doesn't have enough to control the prop. any other suggestions?
    Fly it till the wings come off.

    RE: Planes for a VPP 4D Flying

    RJ is flying the MX2, his own design.
    Can be purchased at Fancy Foam
    http://stores.homestead.com/fancyfoa...h-2/Detail.bok

    The VPP setup (and about the only one that really works) is the Mamo Models VPP setup.

    He is using the Hacker A20-34S
    He uses a 2S setup...some guys use this with a 3S.
