My new hobby is really cool

I like paper planes now it is time to push them to life

For a years I glued paper models, mainly planes because I like it. I interested electric planes and decided to give him a life :). As a junior pilot I bought really small RC plane Sport Cub S built from foam. Very nice for first flight because have a beginner/experienced/expert mode. It called SAFE™ technology and it is really helpfull and prevent to crush our first plane.

I bought RTF version with small low range transmitter, so it is ready-to-fly.

Recommendation

Plane is not easy to control because has 4-channels, so we have there rudder, elevator, aileron and motor control. We need some time training to fly :) even in beginner mode. In standard 150mAh battery we can fly only 4-7min. So I recommend to buy better battery something like 250-350mAh, and surpise we have 15min fly and the plane is really faster. We can use even 600mAh battery, and it helps on windy day. I recommend You to use some insulating tape and strengthen elements of the aircraft, wings, beak and others...

There is only brushed motor so it is not so powerfull and durable like brushless motor. This motor is really not cheep, so we can buy replacement for it for example from Syma helikopter with size 8,5mm x 20mm. The another option is to use brushless motor but then we need to buy a new ECS controller and motor and it is not easy to take it together.

Have fun
