Paul's Planes Original Electric page!
This is my original design electric model. It is a v-tail model with polyhedral wing with ribs stolen from a Goldberg Gentle Lady. Power is a 7.2v Speed 600 with a 9x5 prop and an Aveox A15 speed control. This motor/prop combo draws only about 14A at full throttle. This plane flies wonderfully at a few clicks above half throttle. It handles great in the turns and has a beautiful flat glide.
Wing Area: 430 sq"
Weight: 28 oz. with 8x600AE battery
Wing loading: 9.3 oz/ft^2
