FT Tiny Trainer (Mighty Mini)

#25
Just perfect. I'll put some of these together with my nephews in the glider configuration and if their attention holds I'll be able to put radio gear in them cheaply. I knew i was keeping all those umx transmitters around for a reason...

Hmm. think Im going to try one. Only have 9g servo's and DYE 1806 2300kv, they should be OK I hope. maybe put my Turnigy 2826 motor n it. LOL. Lets see if that will make it fly apart :p

It just will weigh about four times as much, lol. I think where this plane will excel is slope soaring.:)
Agreed. I'd like to slope a simple 2ch one as well, it would be so fun and relaxing. I haven't been to a really good sloping place around here, although I have heard stories (I'll see if I can find Chris at NEF and talk about the Thermal Farm). :D

Maybe I'll climb Mickinmick and chuck it off the cliff at the top. It would be an epic place to fly. Plus, the tiny trainer is very light. I could get the thing into my backpack no problem.:D I'm in the mood for a hike up that mountain after all the crappy weather.

What battery packs were you guys flying these on? I'm going to guess 2s 500 & 3s 350/500??

~psguardian
I have some 2s 850 and 3s 500 at home. I will make them fit, if neccessary. I think I might even try a 3s 1000
('cuz I'm a rocketman.... rocketmaaaaan!!..)

Eagerly awaiting the build video (and plans release).

I'm flying my balsa version on a 2s 370 and it gives plenty of flight time (15-20 minutes). Obviously I'm lighter and cleaner, but I'm also running a much power powerful motor driving a bigger prop.

@FAI-F1D: I'd really like to see the steps and some build tips on how to convert a foam plane to a balsa version. That would be a very cool episode.

Really Cool!

I think I'll build 2 of these and take them to the park next time I meet up with my friends. None of them have any flying experience at all so it will be a good learning opportunity!

I'll have to look into that. It's definitely a useful skill, and it can be implemented in either direction.
