George Harris and I have been working on a new RTF model. It is George’s design and he calls it the RED-E. George has built several prototypes and his latest version flies very well. The model spans 14 inches and weighs about 18 grams. Power is from a 7mm motor direct drive. For a battery, the 70 mah to 130 mah lipo cell is recommended. George has tried several graphic schemes on the model and can also offer several colors. We will also be offering a kit for the RED-E.
The RED-E flies easily in a standard “single basketball court” gym. It has a good speed range and will slow down nicely since the wing loading is ~0.5 gm/sq.in.
