Check out the on-board video I took on the Kondor FPV. It is really stable, but I have to adjust the thrust angle of the engine to avoid down-pitching when throttling.
This isn’t the real maiden flight…on the first flight I had waaaaaaaaay too much throw on all surfaces, and the camera upfront wasn’t secured so it fell right after take off making it tail-heavy. I managed to land it, I secured the camera and dialed down my rates. After that the plane flew very stable.
What do you think?
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.
