Hey guys! I had been waiting for a long time for the release of the Mini Cruiser for some small, slow fpv, but when I saw the Mini Guinea, I chaged my mind. This is the build process and my first thoughts of the plane. The maiden flight will be on my youtube channel (Klinger RC) soon! (Sorry for the audio in the video above...)
I'm using Hitec HS-55 9gram servos.
I decided to leave te rudder fixed to keep some of the tail weight off.
The windows in the cockpit were done with a permanent marker and I used vynel for the stripes on the fuselage.
The wheels would have been detrimental at the long grass field I fly off, so I just covered the bottom in packing tape for belly landings and possibly belly takeoffs!
Overall the build was very easy and quick. It took me about two and a half hours from printing the plans to having a completed airframe. I definetly recommend this plane to anyone even slightly considering it. Check my youtube channel for the maiden and fpv flight soon! I should have the video (and hopefully an article) up by next saturday.
Thanks for spending your time on my article and have a great day!
