Sorry dude. I am out of town right now. I will be back sometime today. During the next few days, I want to complete the DW.

Next Saturday (1 week from yesterday) Jeff and I are planning on going to Cochran in the morning.

I do not feel comfortable flying the DW at any place other than Hodges. Maybe after the maidening, I will change my mind

Back home now. I got some more work done on the DW. I have the main retracts complete. Pics tomorrow when I am not too tired.

I am upset that there were no 3/16 wheel collars included in the kit. The wheel collars attaced to the fixed gear are too small for the retracts. Hmmm. I will post that over in the RCG thread and see if I am missing them. Seems with a Platnium model, they would include them, as they have included everything else.

I'm thinking about building one of these next year with pair of Hacker A40 motors and A123's.

Question, does any one know what the dry weight of this model is, without motor, battery or radio? I saw one of these at a local fun fly, at 10 pounds, it has a really high wing loading.

Thanks!

Sorry I am not too sure what the weight without the motors. Mine are already installed. Apparently the people that saw it fly at SEFF said it slowed down really well.

Found out that the wheel collars is not the problem. The problem is with the landing gear itself. The diameter of the rod is 0.21" That is MUCH larger than 0.1875" . I am goign to call up my LHS and get soem 1/4" wheels collars

What is the weight with the motors and/or batteries? I can just go to motocalc and subtract.

Thanks!

mine is 7lb 13 oz That weight is with the 2 scorpion 3026-12 motors. Each motor weighs about 6.5oz. So that brings the plane in at 7lbs. With all 7 servos and a rx

She now has wheels on the mains. I got my 3/16" wheel collars installed. I wish I would have known before hand. Oh well, my fault for not reading all of the instructions.

I just went outside to program the speed controllers. I did them seperate to ensure I had the counter rotating prop going in the correct direction. I decided to hold on to one of the motor nacelles and run it up. I could not run it all the way up, or it woudl have flown across the garage. I got to about 1/2 throttle before I decided to lower the throttle and call it good.

Wow this this is going to zoom. Tomorrow I am going to install both motor nacelles, and solder up a HVbec

Yes that weight is without the batteries.
It is the airframe, 7 servos (6 digitals), 2 Scorpion motors (~6.5oz each), retracts, wheels

Coop. I am going to move the air tube out of the way when it is ready to go. I believe there is supposed to be foam installed in the wheel wells to protect the balsa.
