A buddy of mine (still some what of a beginner with little to no RC mechanical skills), who I built a Slow Stick for, asked me a couple of questions regarding this:
I have no experience with this type of craft, but was able to point out a couple of things to him related to the apparent lack of power (small motor and prop size 7x4 vs. the weight of 14.8oz ratios)..........although it is a brushless outrunner and has a lipo 7.4v, 1300mah rating, the esc is only a 10amp....could be a problem if he wanted to modify prop sizes to gain more speed/thrust.
Anyway, I'd like some thoughts on the wing design and how the wing is mounted above the fuselage....what pros/cons on this or anything else?
He's found it a lot cheaper at another web site (same package as link) $98.00 and is ready to take the plunge....I'd just like to steer him in a good direction since he flies the 3ch SS pretty well and is to cheap to get into a decent trainer.......and I'm his resident mechanic......lol
Thanks for any input.....!
