If I remember correctly it's about 40g without motor but including spinner cone and landing gear. I weighed everything to check that I was within the flying weight specs because I was using a supermicro RX system but a bigger battery. Overall I was still within the specs.
Celine yes it will work but a bit heavy. You can use PRODUCT ID: HK-GT2_RX Hobby King GT-2 2.4Ghz Receiver 3Ch. It will work on the same TX as the 6 channel. It is much lighter. It is only $6. Also you can reduce the weight on both by removing the plastic case. I hope this helps
These little things are pests to fly indoor as they are pretty fast. Keep them as light as possible to reduce to a minimum wing loading. Dawson's setup is fine but take care to choose a light but yet powerfull battery.
Yes you will need plugs to connect the motor to the esc. Preferably use the micro plugs to save weight and www.link
The best connectors to use for the battery and the esc are either micro deans or JST (the small red ones) as they are small and light.
louigi600, these two people are actually Kellyann, along with 4 others. Kellyann isn't a girl he's a 42 year old male from India who has 6 or more false accounts. He logs on under one false ID and answers a question and then pays himself 20 cents. All the time Mr.Kalyan from India gets all the money. So far he's scammed about $2,000.00 from Hobbyking. Sally, Allison, DelSt, Sharron, Chris, Bacter and Kellyann are all the same person.
Gee this is an old thread mate. I assure you those are the figures, hard to imagine but to quote the person who ran the scam, "I won't give it up, it subsidizes my hobby" Dozens of question a day all asked by the group of fake IDs and all Immediately answered by another of the group. Over more than 12 months. It's nothing to laugh at mate. It's not hard work when a person becomes obsessed. It became his fix. He desperately needed to buy his next plane. I hope you don't agree with someone doing it. Remember, that money was ours and HK was good enough to pay it out as a bounty. No longer, but you'll notice whenexer you order something from Hong Kong in the right hand column there's either a heli or bunch of hobby knives for very little. Just another way to give back a little something to those who support them.
Gotta admire work ethic . I wouldn't type question , log out , clear cookies, log in and give semi coherent response all for 20c . I would question intelligence though , surely he'd make far more than that pestering Aussies at a call centre .
How do you know of this rogue's antics ? Are you privy to IP addresses ?
All I can say is that a gentleman involved with military intelligence introduced himself to me some time ago and being a hobbyist saw what was going on and did some investigations which led to plenty of proof and photos. Written statements the works. I even emailed him and asked him to stop he totally ignored me. He actually believes he's doing no wrong but the more you read his posts you'll notice how he disassociates himself from the truth. He definitely has problems. He will often start accusing me of what he's doing. He manipulates people by saying what that person wants to hear, that's how he got extra payments. Try finding older posts, you'll be surprised
I was a collousion and fraud analyst for a well known bookmakers and used to find chineese doing similar kinda thingsto get $100 sign up bonuses, they would spend days playing $1 - $2 cents games to qualify for it. There were hundreads at it and in poor countries 20 cents could be half a days a wage so it adds up for 'em!!
I know how you feel. This wasn't going to any person living in a mud hut. It was someone with a Uni degree and working a a water treatment facility. He openly stated to a friend of mine in India he would never give up his scam because it subsidized his hobby. The person running the scam has been kicked off three times now. He just keeps coming back with another ID. At least the scammer incentive has been removed which upset him no end. It sure adds up, in excess of $2,000,00.
I would of thought so if your flying is up to it,on the servo side of things i would of said 9gr would be to heavy,the max i would use is 5gr servos and not sure on total weight but i hope this help you some what.
You could possibly fly with 9g servos but you might need a little more power and a larger space to fly in. Also the 9g servos are bigger then the advised 2.5g ones and you might have trouble fitting everything in the fuselage. I'd avoid using 9g servos on this machine and to that matter also the 5g servos of the same size of 9g ones.
Hi Denek, I do not have one of these little beuties but if you look at the amount of 'Diahedral' on the wings you should realise it is Elevator & Rudder only. It will not need Ailerons. Happy Landings.
Hobby King GT-2 2.4Ghz Receiver 3Ch
bottom line smallest, lightest weight. you can even remove the plastic cove for even lighter weight
binds with turnigy and hk transmitters.
this looks like a three chanel plane.
Nar jag lagger Spitten i varukorgen och checkar ut finns bara EMS som fraktsatt. Testa garna. Jag hade tankt kopa ett par saker till och hamnade over 500 gram, darav 30 dollar. Annars 25 for bara flygplanet.
Testade igen. Fr inte large box item i sammanstllningen. Men nr jag gr vidare fr jag den precis innan betallningen...Du har rtt, den tillkommer senare efter shop-carten s prisen blir markant hgre. Har bestllt ex. en bt, men d fick jag prisen p large box item i shop-carten direkt. Beklager jag inte gick vidare efter shop-carten. Ha det gtt :-)
Bestallde spiten tillsammans med en Kyosho AutoKite plus lite annat smatt och gott och da blev fraktkostnaden overkomlig! :-) Allt gott! :-)
I bought this plane as a RTF including the motor batteries and servos. As this version only includes the motor I will confine myself to reviewing the plane and motor only. The plane arrived well packaged and the parts were in good condition. They fit together ok but not exactly but I guess that is to be expected with such a cheap model. The motor supplied with mine was a C10 out runner and it was rubbish. It kept wanting to pull itself apart while running and the screws to stop this were of such poor quality that the slots became unusable for proper tightening. I ended up ordering a new motor which was a much better example of the C10 motor. With the new motor installed I found that the plane was a good flyer and was suitable to use as a low wing trainer. The undercarriage was a little flimsey but it did the job on a hard runway. I have not been able to find replacement props or spinners on HK so if anyone knows where they are could you let me know. 3 stars only because of the poor motor supplied in my model.
