Succes! The Two Dollar Tiger Swapable finnally had her maiden flight, and it was succesfull. wish I could get Video to share with you, but I don't currently have the equipment. Inspired by the FT Spitfire. I wanted something I could just throwin the car and go flying. I gave it the name Two Dollar Tiger because it took only two sheets of Adams foam board to build it. I didnt paint the test version for obvious reasons, but I did create a decal sheet in Photoshop, and used it. It looks AWESOME in the air! I have also colored the canopy, and can't wait to build a painted version. Here are some specs. Wing span: 35" Length: 28.7" Weight:21 Oz. Wing aeria: 234 sq " Wing loading 13 oz per sq ft. Designed for a1200 Kv motor and an 8/6 prop. I used a 1300 mAh 4S 20C to power it on a PLUSH 25 Amp ESC. It's an awesome little park flier. fits in the back seat of just about any car.
Throw it in the car and head for the park at the spur of the moment when you fnd yourself with some free time!
Gets plenty of air to keep things cool!
Ready to fly!
