Looks like it, as long as it stays light. I think I'd stick with the lipo's and be careful on prop selection...

I'm not the best person for props... Maybe Chellie or someone else with more prop savvy will be able to answer that one!

That Park 180 is limited in the spec to a 6x3 prop - max current being around 3 amps. you are looking at 2 amps continuous for a sport/scale flyer of 85-170g. Anyway, here's the spec.

Weigh everything carefully and report back.

If things had gone any worse a few days back, I would be looking at doing something like that with my SE5A wing.

The dang battery never fell out, but I assume the JST connector managed to hang up on something and wiggle loose while doing many loops and inverted flight. Sure enough, it disconnected during inverted flight. The elevator held postion and it glided in upside down, but not that shallow, as it does not exacty stay level in an inverted glide. Did a very clean job of reparing a few cracks, but it really ticks you off when these things happen that never should happen. The saving grace was that I have a CF spar epoxied along the LE of the top wing.

BTW, when the plane came to rest, it stopped a few feet short of a tall grass field, where no damage would have happened. Of course.

The stick designs fly fine. I built a Pico Stick from the 6 dollar wing/tail set at BP Hobbies and scratched the rest. Not worth paying 20 bucks for a boom, several plastic parts, and a gearbox/motor that you already have. The lousy 3gm Blue Bird servos were donated to the project, as they use low grade pot. Had to shim the pot covers with CA for ample tracking pressure, and then wrap wire ties around the case to hold the case halves dead tight. Seem to be working now, but they're not going on anything I care too much about. Gave it to my flying buddy. We'll probably let new flyers use it at the local park where we fly.

The Park 180 and BA 3.6 servos are too good for the stick plane. Get some cheap HC stuff for these flying sticks and save the nice gear for your other projects. They're 3.7gm servos were 2 for 4, but the two 4gm servos I just got from them the other day center very well with high resolution. 3 some odd bucks each.

Park 180:
The Park 180 is definitely more powerful than the $10 similar 10gm outrunners out there. For the price, it better be. I'm convinced that motor would easily fly the SE5A that I assume he had it in, or any stick job.
I flew my 80gm AUW Peashooter with the motor at speed at half throttle, where full would have been completely out of hand. I have a few planes with the lower cost similar motors that fly well, but not as powerful.

I think it should fly if you get it balanced out so that the center of gravity is correct.

Interesting project hmmm 2200kv motor, on 2 cells, I would use a 5x3 or 6x3 if you need the extra thrust, balance the plane at 25% of the wing width from the front edge, that will be your cg, best to have it a little nose heavy, i would use the lipo as its lite, and give your motor a little down thrust, about 2 to 3 degrees, that should help to keep it from wanting to go up as throttle increases, mount everything as far forward as possible, if you can, tape the electronics on the plane to check your cg, before mounting the servos, esc, mount the motor in the plane, thats not going to change Good luck to you, Chellie

Ha.

These things look positively professional!

Here's somthing I scrubbed together using my Aerobird 3 box, some prit-stick and gaffa-tape.

Will it fly?

I doubt it, but I'm going to have fun crashing it silly

I agree but then I've always heard that a quick dirty build should be done first and then build it right & nice looking if the first "quick & dirty" build showed a good deal of promise . I myself can't seem to do that though so I wind up building the first one like it was a production model
Good Luck on the maiden with the roughest looking build I've seen in a real long time Please let us know how it flies or a good crash story would be nice too

Standing By,

Rule 1: If it looks crap, it probally is crap.

I'd like to present the above specimen (or the remains thereof) as proof of Rule 1.

I think I'll have another go at building one out of card, but I'll use micro gear in it and actually take some time over it.
