The Predator scale model is as easy to fly as it is awe-inspiring to watch circle above, easy to build, this is an excellent park flyer. Set it up with a 400 size or 150-200W motor with a pusher prop and you have a stable flying topic of discussion at your next club day.
Watch people run for cover in fear of a pending missile attack with the Predator! Model comes with detailed instructions.
dont bother with this model. the quality is poor, the undercarrige folds even before taking off. Mine had a viscous tip stall and crashed after 5 seconds of flight. wing fastenings rubbish. made my own stronger version but still refused to behave. S****ped in end and had a small bonfire to celebrate.
this model has a carbon spar going through the wings, the easiest way to do that would be to have a small metal bracket underneath to keep the wings together, as this isnt designed for aerobatics it will hold the wings on fine.
I fitted wooden blocks into the wings, behind main spar, near wing roots. Piano wire hooks were attached to the blocks and a couple of rubber bands, between the hooks,hold wings onto joiner. Do not glue joiner into place. It WILL break and be a devil to repair. Leave it loose.
You do not require a pusher prop, just reverse the motor! It flies well and looks really sinister in the air. It will tip stall at low speed so: 1. /-6mm throw on controls is plenty. 2. A little up bias on the ailerons helps. 3. Don't try to stretch the landing, keep the speed up. Do not glue in the wing joiner as suggested in instruction book. It breaks easily and will be a devil to repair if glued in. I left mine loose and fitted small hooks (into wooden blocks inserted into wing behind spar near wing root). A couple of rubber bands hold the wings in place.
