This a cool little airplane! The build was easy. The first time I flew this plane felt like I've been flying it for years! It will do anything you ask of it. I can't wait to try it out on a calm day, or indoors somewhere.
Build went together smoothly, the process takes a bit of patience as there are a lot of parts during the build you want to take your time on and allow the glue to setup before moving on to the next step.
I used the following electronics found on Hobby King for a lot cheaper than what TH sells their recommended electronics for:
- Turnigy 2205/34 1500kv Brushless Motor
- 2X Turnigy™ TGY-50090M Analog Servo 20T MG 1.6kg / 0.08sec / 9g
- 1X Turnigy D561MG Coreless DS/MG Servo 24T 1.3kg/0.08sec/7.5g
- Afro 12A UltraLite Multi-Rotor ESC V3 W/BEC (SimonK Firmware)
- GWS Style Slowfly Propeller 9x4.7 Black (CCW) (5pcs)
This setup worked perfectly, plenty of power for climb outs and no bad tendencies.
Overall I would definitely recommend this plane to anyone looking for a good plane to fly with little fear of crashing as it takes a lot of abuse! I will definitely be buying more TH planes!
After more flying, I really like this plane. It is very predictable in the air, and handles light winds with ease. It hovers nicely. Knife edge flight is great, even without SFG's.
I put 1.25" diameter ultra lightweight wheels on mine, and am glad I did. They are still too small for taking off and landing on grass, but I can taxi much better on grass with them. And it handles much better on pavement with the larger wheels.
This is my 2nd Twisted Hobbys plane. I found it to be an easy build, with a good instruction manual. Kit and fabrication quality was excellent. Everything went together well.
Outstanding flying plane. I really like it.
I have come to realize that I don't like side force generators on planes, so I left them off of this plane, and am glad I did. Unless you only fly 3D in zero wind (which is not my case), then SFG's are more of a hindrance than help. With any wind at all, SFG's make a plane do really stupid, unpredictable things in the air.
