Default Eurofighter

Heres my version of the RCPOWERS.COM Eurofighter. This plane is much larger than his others but a simple 2 servo setup is all that needed to have fun. The motor is static mounted on the rear with a cheap BM2409-12T outrunner and 8x6 prop so it has plenty of power. It took one of my 2100 3 cells to make it balance but once in the air its very nimble and floaty.

Because of the larger battery I also had to add a little weight to a wing tip to correct lateral balance but its no big thing. The plane is a super fast build and mine was RTF in under a hour. There were no surprises and the foam all fit as it should have. I don't have a scale here but guess the AUW to be in the 15 to 17 ounce range but it flies like a much lighter plane.

All and all I have been pretty please with the plane and at some point it may get a functional rudder but thats about it. Nice work Dave Powers, Cant wait to see what you come up with next.

It's a sweet plane Kosh,

I have to add, that this plane should be able to knife edge easily at mid throttle with the addition of a rudder. As it was, it's capable of pulling off a "fake knife edge" by alternating high angle bank turns (small angle change between upright and inverted banks keeps the angle within about 20deg of pure knife edge).

It's an extremely smooth flyer with very few bad habits.
