    Banshee (Specter Mini) Build & Info

    Excited to see this box STUFFED in my PO Box today. Will do a detailed build thread here in the coming days.

    Sweet! NEFPV just got a few of these from VAS too, looking forward to the build.
    If you are not trying to fit through an opening that is just too tight, you are not FPVing.

    Sorry I forgot the fuselage. Stupid me... I got it out today using what I think was your home address. Saved me $20 on the shipping. I threw a new toy I just finished in the second box as well. It might end up being your travel companion when you can't pack a big plane

    If it is broken, fix it. if it isn't broken, I'll soon fix that.

    Just got one of the mini specters that VAS sent to NEFPV . Thanks Alex!

    What are the recommended components? Obviously, I will put a Brain in it , but not sure about the other components.

    This is what I am putting in my personal airplane:

    Motor: http://www.hobbypartz.com/86ma60-2210-1650kv.html
    Servos: http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...g_0_14sec.html
    Video transmitter: http://www.sierrarc.com/index.php?ma...roducts_id=399
    APC 7X5 prop with a 30 Amp ESC

    The motor is pretty generic. Any 1600-2000kV 2210 motor will do. It doesn't need much motor. 200 Watts is plenty. I flew StoneBlue's on only 40 Watts.

    Do you have the AUW of the plane? I like to size power systems to a watt/lb figure.
    When nothing else out there will suit your needs... design and build it yourself.

    Interesting!

    Is this thing on sale yet? I'm currently on the lookout for a small basher wing, but this one looks very interesting as well. Maybe it could tip me over to the fuselage camp.
    What is the fastest it will comfortably fly?

    Subbed!
