Just noticed that
Nitroplanes' has a flying prototype of the RQ-11 featured on a pair of YouTube videos.
Model appears to be a final test version, as they've created copies of plans and other
packaging details which would only exist if they were planning to go to market with it.
I've also checked their website but didn't find any reference to this kit. I'll keep this
topic updated as more information becomes available.
Here are the links to the two YouTube clips they've posted on this so far.
Note: Photo from US Army, is similar but not
identical to actual version featured in video.
Looking forward to your build thread link.
Here's a series of photos whic have just been posted by another Nitro-003 kit builder on
Facebook. I see he's relocated the two servos onto the fiberglass tube and also plans to
add some other changes as well, including retracts and a tail wheel. For a look at what
he's doing click this link;
not signed up to Facebook, let me know and I'll be glad to post his pictures here.
He has A good idea moving the servos there ,
but the the servo horn on elevator is still indanger of getting broke off on landing , I plan on moving the servos into the elevator and into the rudder , Smae goes for the downward facing camera unless he plans to create some sort of landing skid the camera lense going to be damaged.
He mentioned adding 'retracts' and a tail wheel. It would also be easy to
make 'flex mount' for down facing camera, in order to adjust where it points,
but I'd like to see footage before I'd consider mounting a camera there.
Andrew Van Der Plaats ,
Please post the pics from Facebook . I bought 2 of these and am looking at redoing the wing and tail surfaces with composite materials over the film covering or potentially redoing the rudder so servos can b mounted in it like the original .
Thank you sir excellent !!!
