Default Pylon all carbon!!!


A week ago I have been disintegrated in flight my pylon fiber fuselage and wings lined foam balsa wood. First he had on a 350 watt motor giving lipo with 3 elements and finally I put a larger engine with the same lipo gave me 770 watts and the plane only lasted two flights.

And now I've seen this page, all carbon Pylones not know existed. With this model certainly does not happen!

Does anyone know why this store and have the same model with 100€ cheaper?

Thank you.[img]images/smiley/msn/wink_smile.gif[/img]

Hello, you won't get much responce over on this forum. I would strongly suggest that you try the High Performance Forum over on RC Groups. Here is the link:
All the information you could possibly want is found on that forum.

Any plane with foam core and balsa sheeting must have layers of fiberglass, Kevlar, or carbon fiber somewhere under that sheeting to pull the power you were using. They also need carbon spars to strengthen the wing as well. There are numerous planes out there that fit what you want. There are distributors in North America and in Europe. Go to the forum above and "surf" for awhile when you find a style of flying and plane to match the style then find it in Europe and the shipping will be much cheaper.
