Kondor FPV – Scratch-build airplane

I started working on a new scratch-built plane, using some techniques from Ed @Experimental Airlines (mainly, the Armin wing), and some that I developed, such as interlocking-box fuselage. I call it the Kondor FPV. Its 40″. long with a 60″ wingspan. The front and back open for easy access to the gear.

The design is heavily inspired by the Borjet MAJA.

It has a Turnigy D3536/8 1000KV way in the back, turning a 10X7 Prop, running on a 50 AMP ESC (also Turnigy).

It is tail-heavy by design, so I can fit 2 X 3,000 maH 4-cell LiPo in the front, along with 2 cameras, a high-def for recording and a board-cam for the FPV setup.
