Anyone tried this with 3s battery? I want to use mainly from water so wondered if the extra power would come in handy...
 Matthew 18 points
Ha, answered my own question now l own one. Doesn't need 3s at all with wheels as its such a nice plane to cruise around. 3s is real useful on water if a bit ***py to get up as quick as possible. Stopping floats splaying with extra cross wires is a must though. Love this plane...

is this a good first plane
 Bakes75 11 points
Not the best for first timer flies good but has a lot of stuff to fix to get it in the air. Best of with plane with a rubber band set up on wing so if you crash you won't bust wing & can keep fling. Wing dragon good to start tuff as nails & easy to fly with trainer wing on. Comes with sports wing too so can step up to 4ch later on after mastering trainer. One tip but buy some carbon flat spar mixed pack to put some in nose for strength to help with crashes keeps this plane flying for ever. Hope this can help

Ps: some of the CofG issue could be the covering i have used on the wing and tail feathers... it is level at the mo with below adjustments Battery movement / Lead weights etc, using 1/3 rule c of g on wing measurement of 150mm c of g * 50mm...i guess as long as its level on my stand, its a good start right??? Thanks all... look forward to any feed back. thanks

Mine balances at 50-55mm. I made a few changes before I flew though. 1. Wrapped cowling in some tape to protect it. I used Bear tape from Bunnings. 2. Did not like the single servo for ailerons, changed that to have 1 servo in each of the wings. 3. Permanently joined wing together and put 3x1mm carbon flat across joined wing for strength. 4. Strengthened landing gear by adding wire between legs. Stops legs splaying too much. It flys fantastic now. Nice model

Cheers & thanks... yep my cof g is at 50 flat and perfect..battery mounted sideways behind firewall, (Lucky i have small hands) 90grms of lead...guess it will penetrate the air a little better.. have done the wing thing although still have a single aileron servo. took off the wheels and added larger diameter light weight wheels. Engine mount plastic was cracked so i epoxied some alloy flashing (from bunnings) perfect and tough now... will see how it flies...all on int warehouse write up talk about 3s and new motor...may be the next upgrade after i'm use to it and bored... cheers

Tried small 3s battery today with original motor, changed ESC to Turnigy 30A, climbed from takeoff a lot better and flew faster. Some mates are flying this with the floats, looks good on the water.
 Success8 37 points
cheers...how big was the 3s 800mah?
 lobbers66 6 points
1000mah yesterday, but tried 1300 today as well, no difference I could see.
 Success8 37 points
cheers mate and thanks... have a full range of 3s so i will up the esc and give it a go... dare say flight times would be increased as well?
 Matthew 18 points
Hi, maybe thick question but do I need to add a bigger esc to run 3s batteries or will the stock one do? Cheers

Hi all. Im a newb just about to maiden my wilga on stock set up. Yep i have fixed tail / engine mount & wing issues. Although quite tail heavy when balanced.ANYONE KNOW THE CofG recommendations for this stock? please... To get it level on my stand, i have had to add almost 90 grams of lead stiick on wheel weights and move the battery out of the belly compartment to the front inside... can this be right? All responses welcome, thanks all, happy flights!

For those contemplating getting a wilga, I would suggest the Orange one. Straight out of the Box it doesnt seem to have half the issues, as this one has....I'll be running it 3s (2 x 850 mah nano) with a 30 amp esc with about a 1650 kv outrunner spinning a 7x4 prop. Seems like a good start point for this rig

Very impressed. Only took 3 days from the NSW warehouse and arrived well packed with no damaged. Assembly was very easy. I did have one issue, the engine mount was not stuck on perfectly straight requiring it to be removed an restuck. Other than that it was all systems go for it's first flight. I am new to RC planes and I had no issues keeping it in the air and landing was very easy. C of G was to far back for me so at the moment the battery is mounted in the nose behind the motor which gives a C of G of 38mm from leading edge. Great Plane.

i got one of these to train my dad and anyone who wants to have a fly
after the 1st crash the engine clow was in pices so i bought a adjustable engine mount from HK and used a e-flight park400 with a gws 8x4 prop with a hk 18-20esc on a 1000mah 3cell .i get over 10min flight @ 1/2 throttle
i would recomend that you ditch the small wheels and use big fomies or light weight wheel for the bouncing landing which is awesome to see. .HK needs more in stock
i love this plane ....

Hi all. Re-Glue everthing. especiall the front wing holding plastic. If came off in flight ripping the wings off and the plane turned into a missile that kept going...no idea what and who it hit*#*$*$. Second plane flys fantastic on 3S.

I am new to RC flying and the Wilga is the perfect trainer but also a fun model to just amble around the field. Responds very well but needs an added strengthener to stop wing breakage under extremes. I put in an extra carbon spar between the two wing sections. The motor mount is flimsy and breaks easy. I made a new mount and its great. The undercarriage is also weak but I recommend throwing the original away and making a new one with heavier piano wire and larger wheels. All these are small cheap modifications and make it even better than the original kit. I am waiting for stock to arrive so I can buy another....one for learning with all its battle scars and the new one for fun flying.
