  • Turnigy Plush ESC 40A
  • Revox 9x6E Prop
  • Emax ES08MD Digital, Metal Gear servo
  • Loong-naz 3S-1800mAh (20C) (As counter-weight and used at 2 last flight)

Tx/Rx system:

Design review :

  • Airbrake mixing is implemented to alter the ailevators and ailerons position for take-off (side hand-launch).
  • The second battery acts as a weight to simulate FPV gears’ weight and it is used as a trial flight with low C-rating ( result in lower thrust and speed flight ).
  • Proper D/R, Expo, travel limit and ailevators ratio mixing setting for servos is required for maximum performance.
