Excellent very light aerobatic plane.

The whole plane is glued by PVA wood glue with a dab of hot melt glue here and there. Servos glued with UHU por.

Hi Guys,

 I have had a few very satisfying flights with Depron Plane Built by my friend from Lithuania, Retyras of retyras@gmail.com.   
 
 I share one of them with you..... I admire this plane so much that I have ordered another one in INDIAN FLAG COLOURS. The next one will have the Emax 2822 motor and will be much bigger.
 
     
 
 
Depron sheet built packaging tape covered in Lithuanian flag colours electric plane. 3 x 5 grams Hextronic servos.

Retyras will build a plane for you if you want to order it from him.

 The secret technique is the strengthening of the whole fuselage with carbonfibre mesh used for joining plasterboards.
 
This plane is so strong and perfect for bashing about. 
 
Powered by HexTronik 24gram Brushless Outrunner 1300kv Brushless Outrunner Motor.
Kv - 1300rpm/v
Max Load:  7.5A
No Load Current: 0.7A
Suggested Lipo: 2 cell 7.4 volts // 500mah gives me 5 to 7 minutes or 3 cell 11.1v// 1000 mah gives me approx 10 minutes
Thrust: 400g+
Suggested Prop: 8x3.8 but I like to fly slow so I use 9x4.7 or 10x4.7 GWS props  These are great little motors for the price. They are perfect for use on home made foamie planes from 8 - 16 ounces. They will take most of my foamies unlimited verticle. I use 2 and 3 cell lipos from 350-1500 mah and props from 8x4 to 10x4.7 on them.
Motor Weight: 20g
