  2. Snowflake #2 has color, high contrast top to bottom ;) . We will see if it does me in. :D :D Now to mount the motor and esc then the engines can get glued on.

  7. You can threaten that but it will never happen, you have a hard time taking a picture until it is complete and make all of us look like pure armatures. . ;)
     
  8. Thanks Peter



    Hopefully this guy flies as good if not better then Snowflake #! ;)

    That's becouse the paint helps hide all my goofs.
     
  10. Just the opposite for me LOL.
     
  11. Well snowflake #2 is locked, loaded and balanced ready for it's maiden. Notice even the color matched motor and prop??? :D

  12. Well -15 here today along with about a 20K wind, JIMBO also snow on the ground!!!!!! Snowflake #2 had it's 1 battery maiden. Whatever angle you launch it at that is where it is heading , true and straight. Stole the motor and esc out of the proto type so same power setup and I believe it is faster by far so those 3D thin wall printed engines made a big difference . Not saying it was slow before but definitely a big improvement in speed. I do think my burst rate on these cheap esc's isn't that good because the WOT only last a couple seconds and then you can here it slow down a bit.


    So this one was built at 105% with a slight mod to the battery tray to make more room for the battery and did a one piece wing plus I used only one elevator servo. . For you guys that don't have a 3D printer Jim is is working on some thinwall foam ones with no cross mount in the center of them so they should also have less wind restriction. If you have a 3D printer I can send you the files. That is once Bimo and Jim confirm the plans LOL.

    Setup in here is a 1800 Zippy 4S battery, 40A Predator ESC, Geprc 2306 2750kv motor and a 6X3 TGS prop.

    really nice,looking forward to getting this one.
     
  16. You will like it, now you and Bimo have to get out there. ;)
     
  17. I am really surprised at how stable and how well it handles, Our upper management is busy so things are getting a little bottle necked. ;) I don't know if he is on strike or what and holding out for more pay. We offered to double his salary but it didn't help at all. :D

    I started my 105 % today after getting back from the field with my P I F-15G1,those dried up soybean stalks are stiffer than I thought and cause a bit of damage on landing so I'm hopeing he cuts them down now that all the leaves are off them and just the dried up beans are left,keeping my fingers crossed.:cool:
     
  19. You will just have to float it in and catch it. ;)
