Foam Tail Pusher

Range check is always a god idea, especially when using an new rx!
Do not think there will be any more flight test this week due to bad whether, plans are to scale up the frame to host APM.   
My Hitec minima range is horrible 15 m at Aurora 9 Tx at full power I tested whit rx, battery and one servo.

Anyone any ideas?


Project objectives

1. Easy build 2 hour + CNC cutting

2. Dead cheep


Anyone else interested in testing the frame let me now.

Looks like the flight was not very successful i.e. picture #2. :) The frame looks good, I like it. What is the AUW of it ? with gear no APM.....

Cool, but pic #2 not so cool. Jokes aside, the frame look(ed) good and I'd be interested in testing it, albeit with a better radio, so as to avoid pic #2 :)

The span 1000 mm and AUW is 500g with 1100 mAh battery camera and video rx, the model on the second photo is lighter!

No worries I got 2 more to take apart, before I have to warm up the foam cutter. The weather in sweden this time of year is very bad, raining cats and dogs and windy. If any of you guys got a CNC foamcutter I be happy to share drawings and nc files.
