Just one tiny piece of white on bottom which I caught just in time. Otherwise, nothing.

Thanks,

Has anyone had to repair the landing gear on their Angel? I had to put mine down hard yesterday due to battery dumping at an in-opportune time and position. I decided to put it into the small hill at our field instead of the full scale hangar.

The result is one gear bent and ripped out. Doesn't seem to be an easy way in to repair it, but I thought I would see if anyone had done this already and had some insight.

Thanks in advance.

Hi
I had to straighten the gear on my Angel S on several occasions. I used to take it out and put in a bench vice and a combination of carefully applied brute force did the trick. Never ripped on out. My guess is you will need to open the Fuz directly below the UC mounting plate. It shouldnt be too big a job.

I had to bend mine and if I could, it would be so easy with a vise and a HUGE pair of pliers.

I have just being flying one of these Angles for the first time, and can't believe how well the thing TRACKS. This model flys like it is larger than it really is, if that makes sense.
The one I'm flying is second hand, the guy that sold it upgraded to the 110. I put the same running gear in it that he took out, which is a Tunigy motor, and 6s Rhino's.
This is my first ever "E" model, I haven't even flown a foamy before, and so far I'm convinced that this is the way forward for me in future models.
It has been a lot of fun just getting my head around Lipo's etc. GREAT MODEL.
p.s my wife just got a new camera, so I hope to upload a couple of pixs soon. Matt

Just thought that I would add a few photo's of the Angle in flight. I recieved some more Rhino's the other day, the first 6s,3700 Rhin had a deans plug on it, but I see they have now changed plug types, oh well, out with the soldering iron again. Matt

Hello again tIANci,
have not flown this week, but my new batteries have arrived so I can now do 6 flights before needing a charge. I have the spinner, and will fit it in due course as I wanted to get the airflow through the front of the motor, now I have flown it, I will add the spinner and take a new pix for you:-)
p.s saw your new Miss Wind in the other thread, looks nice.

matt ... let me try to get her up for a Sat maiden. I pray she will be as nice as the Angel. I was very bad once. My pal landed his Xtreme Composite 100cc Edge on the field, he parked it a little ways from the flight line. I took off in my Angel and just as I was near his Edge 540, I went into a nice KE like 5' above his plane ... talk about being a show off. Heheheheehhee ...

Hope to see some nice pics of you flying the Angel!

Dammit! Esprit models got their shipment....but they're (mistakenly) all yellow! I pre-ordered a blue/red/white on months ago (yes, it matters to me that much....don't know why). They didn't want to make me a deal on either a yellow one, or on a Miss wind, so I cancelled. This stinks....I need a plan B.

Any suggestions?

What is everybody doing to keep the canopy on, just had to buy a new one to replace the one that flew off in flight. maybe just a simple rod that goes thru the fuz behind the turtle deck. Of course I could just use a small piece of tape.

Rick ... I was most fortunate, mine never came off. If you want something good, add 2 tabs to the back of the canopy and use screws, don't forget the T nuts, see how they do it on the Wind S 110. A simple solution is some tape at the back to the turtle deck, use surgical tape or the 3M/Scotch ones they use for marking library books.

I just did the tape to much hassle to put the screws in each time you want to change batteries. I also put a loop of tape so that it created a tab and you just pull up to break the magnets lose.

I used a canopy lock (http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...idProduct=9218) glued to the top of the canopy with the pin going through the rear fueslarge former.

I found that sometimes these plastic latchs would slip on the wire which is just a friction fit making it diffecult to undo, so a dob of solder on the wire was needed.

I also found it hard to lift the canopy off because the magnets are strong, so I fitted a small dowel on one side to help lift it off.

My Angle is now over 350+ flights and still going strong, I am now flying a Wind S Pro for my competition model and is even nicer, the Wind S 50 is starting to become popular and sits better in windy weather as it is a heavier model, but the Angle lands on a dime compared to it.

I took a piece of White electrical tape and made a loop on the back that creates a lifting point. I use a small piece of blenderm tape to hold the canopy on. This is a very nice flying model and will do both precision and 3D. I am currently running a Scorpion 4020-10 on 5S 5000 MAH 40C packs. 7.5 minute flights are using 50% of the battery. Given everything the 4000 MAH packs are better but the flight times are limited to 7 minutes. I am going to build a Miss Wind S and just collecting parts for that. I wish they had the Miss Wind S in the 110 or 140 size but alas they do not offer this.

Composite is not in the cards. I am more of a 3D IMAC person so the Wind S with the 3D tail would be a better choice. The Miss Wind is such a classic looking design nothing like it out there.

Hey Guys,
                     was just catchin up on this. My angel has flown nearly 50-60 times i reckon. My canopy hasnt caused any dramas, Still using original magnets and everything.
i can agree with the trim issue. the trim on my Left wing has peeled. had to ge the iron on to it.. but everything else is great... I love it. Would sell it in a million years..

  Now onto my next project.
