Indoor Monocoupe anyone?

  1. Going into winter/indoor season and I'm laid off of work right now so I don't have the cash to build a giant scale but thought I put together something different for indoor season.

    Went old school and decided to do a conversion on an old Sig Monocoupe 90.

    3 channel with 5 gram servos and a 2 gram airtronics RX, gonna have STUPID power because it is getting a Hacker A10-12s (what I have), Hacker X-5 SC, and a 2S 200 mAh 20C battery.

    All the electronics add up to 40 grams, looking to be under 95 grams RTF, so I have 55 grams to play with to get the airframe built and covered.

  8. I just needed a break from RC, the guys in my club really p*ssed me off a couple months ago and I just needed to walk away from all of it for a little bit. Then I needed to help my parents out after my Mom had to have brain surgery.

    Anyway, I'm back and ready to have some fun :)

    Exactly. My mother in law had brain surgery and didn't make it through. Not a small thing to have done.
