    I couldn't resist the crack addiction, so I ordered up one of these. The wonderful mailman left it on my front porch today. Can't wait to get started on the build. The only issue I have a question on is the recommended power system and rc items. According to the website, this is what is recommended
    24-26g 1400-1500kv Out Runner Brush-less Motor
    10-20A ESC
    (4) 7-9g Servos
    2s 600mah Lipo Battery
    According to the box, this is what is recommended
    60-100 W motor
    10-12A ESC
    4 X 6g servos
    3s 600-850mah lipo battery

    The setup that is on the box is what I have in my crack yak and I think would work great on this one, but if it is actually the first setup, then my items might be a little weak for this plane. I will use the 9g servos out of my crack yak and then decide on the motor and speed controller setup. I did make a poll just to see what people think.

  2. I recommend a combination of both setups. 9 gram servos on the ailerons, 6 gram servos on the tail feathers. 3s power setup.

  3. You pushed me over the edge. Just ordered mine! :D

    I'm going to paint mine red before I build it.:)

    I actually have 9 gram servos from a donor crack yak that has been retired, so I plan on using those. I have the power system also, but ordered a different setup per the online specs. Just curious, my lipos from the crack yak are 3s 350mah. Will I have short flight times with those? I might have to order some bigger ones.

    I started on the tail. I used thin CA to glue in the CF braces. I then glued the fuse to the horizontal stab. image05.jpg image06.jpg image07.jpg image08.jpg

    Next I sliced the vertical fuse at the tabs. After that I built the wheels. They are made up of a center wooden disc with a foam "tire" around it. There is a foam disc for both sides and a small wooden doubler that goes on each side to help support the axle. image09.jpg image10.jpg image13.jpg image14.jpg

    Finally for the night I worked on the wings. I attached the middle one to the fuse and added the CF support. The servos go in the middle wing, so I also glued those in. image11.jpg image12.jpg image15.jpg image16.jpg image17.jpg image18.jpg I glued the bottom one together and added the cf support to the other 2. I also added the cf supports to the 4 cabanes that get them.

  9. My guess is yes the flight time will be short on the 350's. I'm lucky to get 5 minutes on 2s 325 packs on my 32" Crack Laser.

    I'll probably use 3s 600 packs on my Fokker.

    I will have to see what is out there for larger packs then.
