Mini Q500

just throwin this out there....

I scaled down a Q500 v-tail called "Margarita" (Ed Smith design) to half scale. 26"ws, and bolted on a small brushless motor (EMAX CF2805) that turns a 5.5x5.5 prop, and am powering with a 3s lipo (barely fits!) flying weight is 10.5oz. I am really excited about the test flight and nervouse at the same time. alot of power on a small airframe. all the guts motor and battery cost around 150 bucks...and made my own kit/foam cores. I could probaly get it down to 8-9oz with a built up wing and tail.... fly first, redesign later...

post a few picks of it finished, and will add the pics showing all guts laid out, in the limited room i had!
