Electric Flight Technical / Durafly Sidewinder FPV Racing Wing
« Last post by DominicM on April 24, 2018, 19:51:06 PM »
Durafly's new performance Racing FPV wing is out. Arrives with very little to do to get it in the air. FPV gear is optional. Features carbon throughout to add rigidity and has 2 tip lights and a rear nav light. Gave it a spin and flew it line of sight for the maiden flight on a 4S2700 pack. It tears around at full throttle. Next time out going to keep it low and tight around some pylons.

Check out different makes of cells, the same capacity of battery can vary quite a lot in size, especially different C rated cells. You might be able to squeeze more capacity without surgery.

Rather than lead try and fit a larger LiPo.

Jim
That would be preferable, but may need surgery to the battery bay.

Thanks for the feedback guys.

The model it is installed in is a Ripmax Wot 4 EP/GP which is specifically designed for electric set up and has an additional cooling hole on the underside of the fuselage plus an extra air intake in the cowl, so hopefully that will suffice.

All the components such as ESC, motor and battery are as recommended for the Wot on the Ripmax web site so I'm hoping not to have too many issues. The motor comes with a suggested range of props so I'll try those out with a meter fitted to monitor amps.

One other rookie question. Having checked the balance on the completed model, I will need to add extra nose weight and rather than using dead weight (lead) I plan to use a flight battery to replace the BEC feature on the ESC. Question is which wire do I remove, red, white or black? I'm guessing black and would cut up an extension lead rather than the ESC lead. Thoughts?

Cheers

Ian
Bit complicated for no real reason. Just add some lead.

You need to remove the red lead, this is the positive, leaving the signal line and ground. Rather than chop up an extension lead, just ease the positive pin out of the plug and tape it back to the cable out of the way.
