I'm pretty sure the motor doesn't come in contact with the wing. The motor gets hot but never enough to melt the foam. I tried to keep the mount 90 degrees to the wing. the CF rod is 2mm diameter.i...

scratch built motor mount

I'm on my second Mini Slinger airframe now. I immediately strengthened the airframe and put in the brushless system. I like the look of the stock plastic body for some reason but I never liked the...

my brushless mod

I've been flying a Stryker since last spring and really enjoy the wing style aircraft. Screaming fast flybys! Loops and rolls. So I was interested in the mini Slinger when I saw one at my LHS. The...

Sorry for the confusion! :<: 10 min was a general time span including lots of landings. If I run it continuously it is closer to the 6-7 minute range.

I find time slows down when I'm flying...

Just picked this one up the other night. :ws: I got the BNF version too. No need to add another transmitter to the shelf. The first one I brought home didn't bind to my DX7 or to my mCX radio....

Thanks for the tip Mike. :) I will look for the 350 mAh packs. Mine feels like a bomb now! Do you think the extra weight helps in the wind?

I've been flying the Pluma and the 4-Site now. The 4-Site is a much lighter setup and definitely meant for inside. The Pluma definitely can handle outdoors and I did find it breaks too easily. Foam...

My buddy has been flying one of these since he lost his SC on top of a building! The Apprentice IMO is not for newbies! The SuperCub is much more forgiving. I found the Apprentice with ailerons was...

It's a pretty durable plane. The airfoil wing seems to withstand alot. I only had to reinforce the wheel pants to keep them on - I added carbon fibre struts. I find its more durable than the Pluma!

Silhouette YouTube Video

I'm still getting the hang of landing it. Not much margin for error. It has definitely made me a better pilot! It's so much fun to fly. I still have a 4Site in the box waiting to be built.

sorry...

Silhouette YouTube Video

I picked one of these up last week and I love flying it. I find it very stable and predictable in flight. I tried the Pluma but I think it's a little touchy for my skill level.
