F-22 002Not much luck with the first one i built so i had to try another one.
Got it all finished this morning but no maiden, too windy for me.
The plans are from Flite Test and makes for a quite sturdy build.
The paper is left on the $Tree foam and i used BSI glue and hot melt.
Motor is Emax CF2822
Prop is APC 6.4
Probably do better with a 8.4 but i don’t have one right now.
Here she is.



The tech people at 2dogrc.com spent many months checking out various battery manufacturers before deciding on a supplier who fully met their tough requirements–a high-end battery that they could sell at low end prices. The result is Mad Dog, a series of batteries available from 2-cells up to 6 and mAh all the way up to 5100 and discharge rates from 20C to 35C with a charge rate of 3C. One of the demands 2dogrc.com placed on their supplier was that each pack must contain  synchronized cells, meaning matched internal resistance. 2dogrc.com has run over 300 tests on their new Mad Dog packs and are willing to share the results with you. Just visit their website.


wp0_wpb44b7019_05If you are one of those modelers who have stuck with the less reliable BECs because of your concerns over RX battery weight, your concerns are now over. These new 2100mAh, 20C, 6.6 volt  LiFe receiver batteries fromDymond Model Sports weigh in at only 3.8 oz. They measure 4-1/4” long, 2” tall,  only 3/8” thick and  represent the very latest is LiFe technology.  They  can be charged at the field in 10-15 minutes.

 Dymond Model Sports also offers LiFes to fit your transmitter that will last for weeks of flying without recharging. The battery can stay in the radio and can be charged with Dymond’s inexpensive  3 S automatic LiFe wall charger–only $ 9.95. The transmitter batteries do not have to be balanced, as the amp draw of the TX is very low and would not unbalance a battery. Visit Dymond’s website.
