Default Plans?

Would anyone have any plans for an airplane that can use a SLO-V flight pack? Someone flew my SLO-V through a fence, stripping it of wing and tail. It might have been me.

Might be easier if you just bought a new wing and tail feathers for what is left, that is if there is anything left. Those fences can be pretty unforgiving sometimes.

I think that if you don`t want to get another Slo-V (and I`ll understand you), you will have to stick to another V tail plane about the same weight than the Slo-V. The tx/rx/esc original Slo-V combo is programmed for V tail operation.

This can be changed by swapping the jumpers on the RX brick. The RX is shared with the PZ Super Decathlon and J-3 Cub. I got this from the PZ Super Decathlon User Manual:

Orientation:
(See photo of jumpers below)

J1 J3

J2

Options:

J1: In = Rudder to Elevator Mix (Supposedly to reduce altitude loss when turning), Out = No mix
J2: In = V-tail, Out = Conventional tail
J3: In = LVC set for 6-8 cell Ni-mh, Out = LVC set for 9 cell Ni-mh or 3S lipo

As for plane suggestions...

The most obvious and easiest to assemble is the GWS Slow Stick kit:

You have to get creative with the motor mount. Probably the easiest will be to use a 2" L x 3/8" square wood stock.

1) Shave it down so that it fits both the SS 10mm aluminum fuse and the 8mm Slo-V motor mount.
2) Use a screw and epoxy to secure it in the SS fuse.
3) The motor/gearbox should be secured to the wood stick with a screw... but not from the front like stock. Drill a new hole from the bottom of the motor mount... perpendicular to the wood stick.

Another option:

If you don't mind scratch building, then have a look at the 42" Blu-Baby plans on RCG.
