Maidened my new Weasel

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Few days ago I had a blast maidening my new Weasel in Centenial Park, on the Skiing hill.

The wind was 20 km/h S-SE, not very strong, but enough to keep the weasel flying for 20 minutes without landing. After 80 minutes of flight I recharged 120mAh.

The weight was 440 grams:

- self built pack of 4AAA rechargeable batteries
- normal charging switch
- HXT 900 servos, hot glued
- covered ailerons in transparent yellow shrinkable covering film
- orange receiver 6 channel, case removed and no satellite
- no reinforcing tape on the leading edge, to keep the weight to a minimum
- needed 28 grams of weight in the nose to balance

I am looking now for new spots to fly the weasel, thanks "lornecherry" for pointing me to Centenial.

I'll post some pictures soon.

Edit: I just want to add how impressed I am with the DreamFlight, the guys building these gliders. The package came exactly on time and it is very good quality, the instructions are clear and a couple of days later I got $8 refund from DreamFlight as the shipping cost was lower than the estimated $18. I wouldn't hesitate to order again, I am thinking of an Alula.

Something I learned the hard way: when close to the hill and low, never turn downwind

A sloper is born
You like the weasel and you will be similarly impressed with the alula. Micheal from dream-flight sells a great product and stands by his customers. Post pics when you can Florin
