01 03 10 12:26 - StarLight
More than a year has passed since the last post here. This time was spent combining various wings, fuselages and tails together, until I settled on StarLight
by Karel Koudelka. Nice wingspan, AG profiles, and most important, very long nose, which enabled me to put together a very lightweight but still powerful motor setup:
It consists of hand wound cobra speed drive (4x1.12Y), which was demonstrated as being capable of handling 1.7kW on a record setting funjet
. Paired with a 4.2:1 gearbox and 6S 1Ah 40C lipos, it delivers a comfortable 1kW, turning 13x11 prop. There's enough energy for 5 10-second climbs, which is almost enough for a whole day of flying :)
