Laine's Planes Normal Norman


Fly yes... land no.
Laine's Planes Normal Norman

When I was in Ohio for FliteFest Laine let me fly 2 of his Norman's. The (Normal Norman) 3 channel and the (Nifty Norman) 4 channel.
I needed one and opt'd to buy the 3 channel Norman. I plan on buying the aileron wing next time.

480 960kv motor
35 Amp ESC
12x6 Prop
3S 4000
17g MG servos
PDB with switches for the LEDS
Lots of LEDs

Build wise, hot glue and some wood glue. I used gorilla glue because I had that on hand.
Laine's instructions are super clear and rather fun to follow.
I built Norman over the course of a few evenings and only had to modify the firewall to suit the older PZ 480 motor I had.

As you can see from the video Norman flies great. Can't wait to try some evening flying.
