Well here it is, first flight of electric conversion of the W60″ from Rene Salina.
Flew using trim settings of standard W60″ with no adjustments needed with power on.
Now I know the purists out there will be throwing their hands up in horror but the reason behind this conversion is to extend the flying days available on sites were recovering a land-out is not an option.
The success of this version is credit to Alan’s sound design.
A second W60e is currently being built.
12×6 prop on 41mm adaptor
Pulls 19 amps on full chat
880mah 3s lipo
The Wildthing 60″e Weighs in at only 50 grammes more than the standard version.
Speed controller is surface mounted so heat sink is in airflow and the Lipo battery fits in original Battery/RX space without modification.
Rene has promised us some video footage soon and close up pictures of the electronic set up should also be on the way.
Here is some footage from Sundays outing and my Wildthing 30″ maiden session. Fairlight was a bit foggy but a lot of fun.
Thanks to everyone who showed up for battle and a big thanks to Jon “Wheelieman” Kemm for shooting the video.
SAS is resurrecting one of the limited edition designs for a short period. The Mini Wildthing (Wildthing 30″) This is a fast little model with an impressive roll rate suited to stronger winds and its small size means it will easily fit in to the boot of a small hatchback, ideal for those stolen moments on random slope sites or to take on holiday. The 30″ version of the Wildthing has a deeper wing section. This makes it an ideal candidate for electrification with a view to adding some FPV gear for fixed wing FPV racing. The slope version will be available towards the end of October.
