Well after quite afew years out of the rc loop i am back trying crazy stuff. I have been building another dollar tree creation after i crashed my umx b-25 mitchell one motor locked up causing a sharp tip stall right into the ground and it was the maiden flight Then that's when the micro wing idea began. micro wing 2.jpg  micro wing 1.jpg

Ok I was having a problem with my prop going the right direction since the motor used to be a tractor set up and i need it to be a pusher and i am using the motor mount and gear box from the B-25 so i reversed the polarity and viola the brushed motor is now a pusher. I am hoping i have enough thrust, if the weather cooperates i will get some video tomorrow.

Here is some video of the wing servos working motor revs up and you can hear the AS3X chatteringo_O

Well I didn't get any video my camera was dead luckily I have a new one but there wasn't anything to video 5 seconds the wing was too heavy now I have a 14 inch wingspan one I am starting on I'll keep you posted the glide tests are way better than the first one

How about building one without the paper it will be much lighter
Wot, no Depron?

That might be the trick bogusbandit56 these micro set ups are a pain the inline servos mounted on the board and combined is the esc i keep running out of space and i have to mount the board on one side for that servo and a servo on the other side then my weight distribution gets all messed up then it is always making a turn to the left so now i have tried pennies to balance it out and it is getting heavy again. Maybe i am fighting a loosing battleo_Oo_O12 inch wing.jpg

Do you have reflex in the elevons?
I don`t know how experienced you are with wings and if you don`t have some up trimmed in they never fly.
If the wing glides the motor should make it fly

Yeah i have some up trimmed in but i need to make somemore elevons mine don't stay they are moving around and need to make my hinge points tighter and i can't get much movement on these micro servos. I think i may be getting closer if the wing makes it through testing.

You know, these wings can be so twitchy but great fun, so all the slop needs to be eliminated. I would invest in some micro servos mini receiver and 6 amp esc. Lets face it it`s about an hour to build the wing and if you break it they are so quick to replace.
I know the basic idea was to used the gear you already have but wings can be so addictive
Have you seen my W wing thread? I built a wing that weighs 180 grams whithout the battery and it almost flies itself
Wot, no Depron?

yeah i looked at some micro motors and esc's, servos etc that would be alot easier I was wanting to use the AS3X stuff to make it different but that stuff i am going to leave to horizon hobby. I guess i will have to rename this thread. I have a few more threads on here of my 30 inch dollar tree foam wing and a 60 inch one they all flew great
