Almost finished model performance motor glider powered by an AC motor from nearly indestructible extruded expanded polypropylene (EPP) Complete Set RC mode 1
Motorglider ALPHA 1500 brings beginner RC sets a new, higher level! Let's take it nice order: elegant motor glider with a large supporting surface with controlled ailerons, rudder and elevator powered by a brushless motor. Robust - yet very lightweight - construction of EPP foam provides excellent resistance to damage in a crash, or at least very easily repairable, if any damage already there. To power the engine is a lightweight Li-poly battery with a large capacity model is dominated by four-channel RC system 2.4 GHz FHSS ensures high resistance to interference. Of course there are no worries with crystals and free / occupied channels ... We just take care of it, you have the path to success wide open, and your first steps complicate worries "material nature."
ALPHA 1500 is a powerful motor glider made from high grade extruded polypropylene EPP driven by an AC motor.
The hull fitted with a motor (outrunner, 60 g, 1050 rev. / Min to V), the controller 18 A (for Li-po i NiCd / NiMH) and the elevator servo is molded from foam EPP, in the wings is reinforced plywood reinforcement to which it is anchored by coupling wings. Canopy is removable with magnetic closures. Two-piece wing profile with a flat underside is also molded from EPP, the ailerons are controlled by 2 servos stored in the wing with short straight wire rods. Wing halves connected by the coupling of 4 mm steel wire. The tail surfaces in a classical arrangement are made of EPP, are controlled by means of wire cables. The propeller is reclining, with turbokuželem with openings for cooling air in the middle. Cooling motor, controller and battery helps more cooling air inlets on the sides of the nose, necessary outlet for heated air vents are on the sides of the hull in the area under the wing.
Preparing for flight only includes mounting horizontal tail (double-sided tape or glue sticking middle), deployment of wing halves and connect the drive battery. Controlled by the ailerons, rudder, elevator and motor speed.
The control model is a classic four-channel transmitter 2.4GHz FHSS (frequency hopping system with spread spectrum) with cross controllers arranged in Mode 2 (throttle left), trims and switches sense deflections for all channels. It is also equipped with a charging plug for charging the transmitter battery in the transmitter (suitable charger are Hitec CG-22, CG-S32). To power the transmitter will need 8 AA (AA-size) alkaline batteries or rechargeable batteries (not included RC set). If you do not like holding the transmitter in your hands, you can add a strap Hitec (# 8311) or place it in a tray to transmitter Optic 6 (just to be generous with foam tape on the sides of the transmitter housing).
Like in the case of our other sets (Skylady, Cessna 480 ...) is RC equipment can later be used in other models of the same category.
ALPHA 1500 is designed for beginners as-always delivered - under the supervision of an experienced pilot, as well as for anyone who wants just so beautiful holiday travels. Flight characteristics are pleasant, straightforward and accurate control of the model. Model will acquaint you with full control of the model around all three axes coordinated control with the right rudder, ailerons and elevator. This experience is "like finding" no later than right after you start your first flying aerobatic models or (semi) scale model of any kind. By changing the ratio of the lengths of servo and rudder deflections can adjust the size of a large range. Beginner, start with small, safe and excessive "steerage"; experienced pilot sets the size, allowing a little bit of that větroňové basic aerobatics - loops, barrel rolls, Alpha Wing Over go very easy and good! The power is sufficient for sustained climb at an angle of about 45 °, so to gain sufficient height for catching thermals you need only take a moment! Alpha 1500 is very sensitive even to weak thermals easily with the precise control about all axes settles into the rising stack of small diameter.
ALPHA 1500 is supplied with a Li-poly battery 7.4 V 1500 mAh (15C load), which corresponds to the folding propeller 10x6. "Model no problems" can carry "dvoučlánky until about 2500 mAh. Alpha can also be powered from tříčlánkového Li-poly battery in this case it is necessary to mount a propeller with a diameter of 1 inch (25 mm) lower, to avoid overloading the motor and controller. Note that due to the large diameter of the cone propeller 10x6 "create sheets 9x6" (eg Graupner 1336.23. 15). Smaller prop for tříčlánek - ie 9x6 "- you need only sheets 8x6" (eg Graupner 1336.20.15).
RC set includes: body molded from EPP with mounted AC motor, folding propeller 10x6 "speed controller 18A, six-channel 2.4GHz FHSS receiver and 2 servos, wing molded EPP installed with 2 servos, tail of EPP, steel wing joiner, four-channel 2.4GHz FHSS transmitter, flight battery Li-poly 7.4V 1500 mAh (15C), 12 V fast and detailed instructions for building and flying.
