World Models' latest 40 size warbird - the Zero
Just maiden the World Models' 40 size Zero EP this morning. All wood construction, stock outrunner motor & 40A ESC, Futaba receiver & servos. Turnigy 4S, 3,300 mAh, 30C battery on APC 11x8 E prop.
It took me three evenings to put the plane together. What can I say, I''m a slow "installer" ... . Every parts are precise & put together real easy, they especially did a good job on their covering/ color scheme & looks really realistic . The recommended CG came out slightly tail heavy, so I balance it with two square weight on the nose.
Take off run requires holding a little right rudder, climb out & subsequent trim flight for straight & level was pretty uneventful. It did require a touch of right aileron & some down elevator - with landing gear on both extended & retracted position.
Since the nose cowling is fairly large, you do need to keep the speed up & hold slight elevator while turning. Loop tracks fairly well with minor rudder correction, & roll requires slight down elevator when it's inverted.
When it comes time for landing, be sure to maintain slight throttle to prevent stalling. Try not to hold too steep of a glide angle, with some practice & above idle throttle, you should be able to touch down with a three point landing.
I've always enjoy flying the World's 40 size Spitfire & Mustang EP. With the Zero's kit price of $159.99 - motor, battery, esc, radio equipment required, it's definitely another winner from World's.
Now, if I can only persuade their owner Fai Chan to offer the de Havilland Mosquito fighter, I'll be a real happy camper.
