  • Espritmodel's video


  • I use prop Aeronaut 13x11

  • I used the same motor as for my another Pulsar gliders I use for ALES competition
    As I wrote my goal soaring by FPV, no long duration of flight.
    Average flight time 30-40 minutes, mostly with motor "off"
    APM 2.6 on board just for security reason if I lose video contact back model to home and take manual control
    By the way APM works great !!! I use APMs over 5 years, start from APM 1 , and never had any problems

  • Hello there Alex,

    Nice looking plane. Alex, what propeller are you using? With that plane at  2,5kg, you might try a 500kv motor with a 15x12 to 15x13 prop and 4 cells - I believe you will drop motor amps down to around 4amps at a cruise speed of 14m/s with that wing ....

    The Nampilot..

  • Very cool! Great looking model. What flight times are you getting while fpving it?

  • Very nice. Would love to find a place like that to fly, nice open land.
    Everywhere around me is claimed farmland...
  • That look slike a clean installation.  Thanks for the post Alex.  I am considering a build with the Esprit Models Albatross using a Vector AP.

  • For filming I have used GoPro3 attached on top of the central panel of wing.
    For better performance of stream video during the FPV flight  better use Security Camera PZ0420. This is what I have now

  • We used a slightly bigger camera - An S4 Zoom android camera.

  • Better use small camera. I used what I have
