Thanks a lot your Royal Sassiness ! ! :-0
Surfin along, minding my own business, when I see a thread about a guy looking for his next project, a MPX Mentor. I took an interest as I have one and rate it highly.
His Royal Sassiness pipes up with “Yea great plane “”BUT”” I would make it into a twin with a gopro in the nose ………………………..
“Oh No Here we go !” Another winter project ! So I now have to surf with a vengeance.
My Mentor Project Mentor x25s 5000mA 642g 704g 2x 3s 5000mA
GT 28x26 175g 204g 2x 28-14x8T
Black Mantis 85A 47g 78g 2x 40A @39g each
Totals 864g 986g
28-14x8T 300W each with 10x7 or 8200RPM 3/4 320W with a 11x5.5
GT 28x26 8200RPM 3/4 throttle = 577W with 12x6 900W at WOT (Overkill)
The Mentor will not notice another 120G (some times I doubt it would be bothered with another Kg ;-). I have the motors, the ESCs and a 3000 3s and some ballast.
A spare set of wings is about 28GBP. Leave the standard motor in 175g to simulate GoPro (94g) and a little more L0L.
This experiment will cost me under 40GBP “worth a punt”. Any comments especially from the perpetrator of this scheme, one His Royal Sassiness !
