A 45mm spinner fits perfectly and completes the scale look!
Here are the GENERAL SPECIFICATIONS:
WINGSPAN: 1100 mm | 43.31 in
DRY WEIGHT: 502 g | 17.71 oz
ALL UP WEIGHT: 644 g | 22.72 oz (with 1300 mAh 4s)
CHANNELS: 4 (THR | AIL | ELV | RUD)
The ARGUS is a mixture of classic and modern FT building techniques. It uses the FT Mini Power Pod. The scaled ARGUS has a very short landing gear – it is a „low rider“ and for this scale look, you should use a 7" propeller with a 1400 kv 2212 brushless motor. The wheels have a diameter of 45mm (1.75 in). Of course you can build them yourself with the templates in the plan.
For the maiden flight I will use the following SETUP:
The ARGUS works with the FT POWER PACK B. I will also add longer landing gear parts to the plan for using an 8" propeller and the FT Power-Pack B motor on 4s with the landing gear. If you don't want a landing gear, you can also build it as a belly lander.
V0.2 of the Argus is ready for maiden:
It has a full acro wing, air outlets, an enlarged battery hatch and the landing gear is reinforced with BBQ-Skewers. Mounted is an Emax mt2213 kv 935 (compatible with FT Power Pack B) and an 8" propeller. The wingspan is 1100 mm (43.31 in) and the AUW with a 4s 1600mAh is 667g (23.53 oz).
