Hi FliteTest community,
The Mini Guinea is my very first FT Speed build kit. I picked the Mini Guinea because it is high wing witch means that it will be easy to fly, it's a twin engine plane(I already had a single engine Cessna so I wanted to try something new), and it has a cargo door so I can drop parachute guys, toothpick gliders, ect.
That being said, lets get started!
To start I soldered bullet connectors on to the motors and ESC's.
Next, I put together the mini power pods. Since this is my first time building the power pods, it took to between 45-60 minutes which is kind of a long time..
After the power pods, I got up the FliteTest Build video and started building the the wing.
The Build video can be found Here.
Next, I folded the wing over to make a nice air foil. I also installed the aileron Servos.
Then I made the things that the power pods sit in and install them on the wing. Then I put the motors on and connected all the the wires.
Then I built the body and the battery platform. You have to make sure the body is perfectly square.
Then on to the nose and tail!
I attached the nose to the body and installed the elevator and rudder servos.
Lastly, I plugged all the wires in to the receiver and put on the wing.
I had a very fun time building the Mini guinea and definitely recommend you get one. Also Keep a look out for articles on my maiden flight and how to add a cargo door!
