    will a 1300 11.1v battery be too heavy for this plane?

    Nice job. Looks like it flies great. Then again, they all do until I try to fly them. :p

    Oh, I hope you've been good to her. This is her opportunity for revenge! I had a neighbor clean my teeth once. Once.
    Glad to hear you are excited to get started, pilot x!

    I think it depends on what you aim for , with a such a brick as battery, I think it will still fly and as mentioned it might handle the wind better but you won't get that shock flyer 3d performance out of it.

    I for example will try to keep the weight down to a minimum with either 2s440 or 3s360 along with a 24g motor and 12a esc. Will it handle the wind well ? I don't think so, it will be blown away but it will hopefully have awesome 3d flight performance which is my target for this bipe.

    yeah i want amazing 3d performance for this plane. the reason i wanted to use such a battery was because 4 of my 3 year old battery's just died:( and i needed a replacement that would work with all of my planes. the batteries that died were 4 1600mh 11.1v batteries.

    That's funny , everyone is going with light packs. I balanced the plane out with a 1800 and 100g motor (1100kv) .. The problem here is the cross winds , they make any plane that's to light impossible to fly ..Well not fun to fly anyways .

    I too need more weight than my 500 will give. I have two 370's I'll use and ordered 500 3s's with the 8x3.8 as the mike mentioned. Wind is my main problem. Can't get away from it here.

    The problem with these type of planes are they are usually made of 3mm depron with tiny carbon spars for strengh. As this is made from 6mm depron and has a long tail adding weight to the back end, you either need to put your elevator and rudder servo as far forward as possible or use a bigger battery to get correct cg. A 1000mah 2s will balance the beast out just fine, remember not to put your servos to far back though.

    I will put the two 370's in parallel which will be a 740. But the weight is what I'm looking for. I like the epp because of its light weight and durability, but it also has more air resistance. It does not gain airspeed as easily so that speed is very constant.

    that makes me really happy because my setup is as follows: graysonhobby 2208 12 motor, 1300 3s, 10x4.7 prop and 4 servos. this should give it more than a 2:1 thrust to wight ratio and slow flying

    It does need front fuse weight but doesn't gave to be precise. I flew with the lipo in three different places about 1" apart. Have you any pics of the fuse?

  20. very nice hex-a-beast. one question though how will you attach the bottom wing to the fuse since its at a point on the fuse instead of a flat part? love the hinges and doubled foam elevator. Is the rudder two layers also?
