I'm mainly a glow flyer, but have acquired a 17.5 inch-WS Guillows Stuka which I have decided I would love to actually fly as an RC bird. I have seen a few others do this with this size Stuka, but they all seem overweight, and not to mention overpowered, and this leads to my quest. I want to give this machine a very light electric system, power is not the goal, but moreso scale flight, and endurance. A 15 minute flight time per charge is a rough target goal. Any suggestions from those more experienced here will be much appreciated. Of course, the more cost effective will be preferred over the more expensive.
The aircraft is already being set up with the correct control surfaces etc etc...and you guys are right, I need to get you the AUW before you can give me ideas. I still need to tissue cover it, so once I do that, I think it will at least be in the ball park. I will get you the weight data shortly.
PS. Am thinking rudder elevator controls.....saves weight from an extra servo for the ailerons, and if the system is chosen correctly, to fly on the wing that is and not be a ridiculous rocket, it should work nicely and be stable with that gull wing dihedral.
