What's New From The Drawing Board of Tony Nijhuis

Updated 20th August 2016


 

67" ZERO- 2016 RCM&E Autumn Special

In the last week I put some covering on and fitted the model out ready for a test flight at Hastings....Well a beautiful summers day of low cloud, drizzle, high winds greeted me at 10am this morning. To me this is the perfect test flying weather coz if it doesn't work in these conditions, it not a model for all seasons....

So with a couple of taxi runs all seeming ok, I lined her up into wind and with only 3/4 throttle she was away....ammazzzed to say it needed no trim changes whatsoever, which has to be a first for any test flight....even in the strong wind, the model was nicely controllable and surprisingly stable....Only a small amount of nose weight was needed so hopefully, by the time the cowl and detail is added, I hope to ballast free!!!

Thanks to 4-Max for putting together a superb electric setup capable of turning a scale 3-bladed prop and giving 11lbs of thrust....so no worries if you add a couple of lbs to your build weight

Span is 67", current AUW was just over 8lbs.
