Dollar store f-22
Its the f-22 from here http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=740049
My father and I built one of these the other week and man are they fun. Now we have 3 of them partially built. The plan it to use these for some combat type fun flying.
The first one we built. Its not pretty but it flies great
HURC Emax CF2805 1700kv Outrunner Brushless Motor
HURC 18amp ESC
2s 1000ma 30c batt (pretty slow but flyable)
Turnigy 3s 1000ma batt (flies great)
Turnigy 5g micro servo
have ran 8x6,8043, and now 7x6 props the 7x6 is my favorite so far.
again all I can say is wow what a great flier its no speed demon for sure but it cruises along pretty good on 3s.
Now we are starting to build up to more versions. The first will be basically the same as the original expect I am added some extra bracing to try and stiffen it up and going to run a bigger motor and esc (shooting for about 35oz of thrust) to see if I can build a faster stronger version.
Thats the start of it the tape on the leading edges is holding a wood dowel in place while the glue sets up.
and the other version my dad is tinkering with is going to be powered by a 64mm edf He also made the fuse the same thickness as the wing. and we'll be doing a bit more to it in the next couple days.
