Ivan Peddigrew plans,electric powered by a Simprop 40-42 w/4:1 gearbox- wish I had it ready for maiden today!
Here's photo of my completed Ivan Chipmunk. Did first flight last evening at dusk after the wind died. The marker lights looks great. Powered by an E-flite 32k, HobbyKing 70 Amp esc., 2 35c 2100 mah batteries wired in parallel. Prop on initial flite was an APC 15x8E. Current draw a full throttle was 52 Amp and 585 watts. Takeoff was short, very little trim adjustment on elevator only. Flew for 6 minutes and used 25% of the battery. Flies great at 1/3 to 1/2 throttle and is hard to put onto the ground as it floats. I do have flaps and will try them next for landing. Sprung Oleo gear from HobbyKing works well with a lighter spring. All in all a great flying plane. Can,t wait to get out again tonight.
