Mini Fox
« on: February 27, 2016, 00:23:12 AM »
Fox chuck glider 22" span, covering with tissue and pu varnish. Using mini helicopter servos, gyro and receiver for control of ailerons and rudder. Looks like it will fit together. 
I have the body of an 18 year old.........I keep it in the freezer

Very good John!
Looking forward the first flight!
More details about the radio install?
Education is important, but flying RC planes and gliders is importanter!

Nice one. And under 1kg will be exempt from new rules. What gear did you use?
John.

2 x 2gram servos. A frsky 4ch rx and a little 250 mah lipo. I like the frsky rx as they run just fine on a one cell lipo with no brownouts, no bec needed.
