H29 Foamie Jet First Trials
I built Chara’s H29 Jet last week. I wanted a fast-to-build, simple, fun jet to fly at the park. I used Elmer’s Foam Board, wood dowels, and Gorilla glue. I knew it would end up heavy, but I wanted the added weight for stability in the wind. I went with an Exceed RC Alpha 370 brushless motor, 1360 kv with a 7×5 prop.
It few well but nowhere as fast as I want. I had the rates set at 100% for high and 50% low but that was way too much. I have to try 50% high and 35% low next time. I read up on people using 8×7 props with this motor so I’ll go with one of those next flight.
