Flight Line Plans kits comprise all airframe components cut to size only requiring glue and decoration to complete.


Flight Line Plans Elipsa vs Kit

Elipsa vs is an elegant micro R/C soarer designed for the AR6400 or similar receiver module with a 2gm brushless outrunner. The 22.7" eliptical wing results in a model which can climb very quickly in thermal conditions and is also suited for slow flying indoors. The composite construction combines Solite covered Depron flying surfaces with a built-up balsa fuselage.

Specifications:

  • Wingspan: 22.7" (577mm)
  • Flying Weight: 1.1oz (32g)
  • Wing Loading: ~1.6oz/sqft
  • Controls: 3 (Rudder, Elevator, Throttle)
  • Flight Time: ~15 mins
  • Power Loading: 100W/lb

Items Needed to Complete:

  • Spektrum AR6400 or similar (requires external ESC output)
  • 10mm 2g brushless outrunner motor, TGY or XP 3A 1S ESC and TriTurbo or GWS 2.5x0.8 prop
  • 130mAh - 240mAh 1 cell LiPo battery
  • UHU-Por to join airframe components
  • transparent Solite film
  • Blenderm or similar tape for control surfaces

A number of options for Flight Line Plans Elipsa vs Kit may be purchased at discounted prices. Selecting an option will add its price to the total. One So-Lite Patch Pack will be enough to cover the wings and tail.

Flight Line Plans Chirp vs Kit

'Chirp vs' is an 'Old Timer' style indoor and garden micron model for the Spektrum AR6400 or similar 3 function R/C. Full size plan plus CNC cut kit of balsa, depron and ply parts and wheels and pushrods.

Chirp vs may be power by a brushed or brushless motor, both with a gearbox driving a GWS 5x3 propeller. The brushed power system is connected directly to the AR6400 or Vapor receiver ESC output and an external ESC is required to drive the micro brushless motor. Chirp vs flies very well on the brushed motor but the brushless provides just a bit extra 'go' for aerobatics. The complete system is operated from a single LiPo cell.

It is remarkable how well this model flies on just a few of watts of power and will loop and stall turn easily.

The Chirp vs kit includes CNC cut parts and a fully annotated plan with building instructions and control setup.

Specifications:

  • Wingspan: 14.6" (370mm)
  • Flying Weight: 1.0oz (~28g)
  • Wing Loading: ~2.5oz/sqft (7.5g/dm2)
  • Power Loading: 100W/lb (45W/Kg)
  • Flight Time: ~10 minutes
  • Controls: 3 (Rudder, Elevator, Throttle)

Flight Line Plans Sqeek Kit

Sqeek is a 9.5" (240mm) span model for the Spektrum AR6400. Sqeek supplies spectacular aerobatic performance from a single Lipo cell and brushless power. Although more suited to outdoor flying, even in reasonably windy conditions, this model can also be flown indoors in a large hall by competent flyers. Beware though as sqeek can move quickly!

There's been a revolution underway since the introduction of 2.4GHz equipment and in particular the super small versions now offered in increasing numbers with miniature ready to fly planes. for follow-on designs to accept re-use of these items and are introducing several new plans based around the Spektrum AR6400 receiver.

Sqeek is powered by the hexTronik 2 gram brushless outrunner D1000-7700 motor driving a Tri-Turbofan prop supplied from a 180-240mAh Lipo cell. The Spektrum AR6400 integrate receiver and 2 servos and allow wired connection of an external single cell ESC rated at 3A. Flight times can be in the ~10+ minutes range and the all up weight is only around 20 grams. Construction is mainly Depron with a balsa fuselage and local ply strengthening. The finished model benefits from colouring with acrylic paint.

Sqeek is supplied as an 'Instructional Plan and Materials' which includes full size drawings of component parts and comprehensive build instructions supported by a materials pack. There is also information on connecting the ESC and Tx and servo set-up. This plan format has already been acclaimed with the Goolie design; we hope you find it user friendly.

As with other Flight Line PlansTM models, it's remarkable how well this model flies on around 6 or 7 watts of power and despite its size it flies in an exceptionally stable yet aerobatic fashion with an impressive turn of speed. Sqeek is capable of all rolling and looping manoeuvres and inverted flight and can be flown both fast and slow due to its light wing loading and high power to weight ratio.

Specifications:

  • Wingspan: 9.5" (240mm)
  • Flying Weight: 0.7oz (20g)
  • Wing Loading: ~2.1oz/sqft
  • Controls: 3 (Elevons(2), Throttle)
  • Flight Time: ~10 mins
  • Power Loading: 165W/lb

Items Needed to Complete:

  • Spektrum AR6400
  • 10mm 2g brushless outrunner motor, TGY or XP 3A 1S ESC and TriTurbo prop
  • 180mAh - 240mAh 1 cell LiPo battery
  • UHU-Por to join airframe components
  • Acrylic or other foam-safe paint (e.g. Styro spray, or ZIG Posterman marker pens)
  • Blenderm or similar tape for hinging elevons

Flight Line Plans RoundOne Kit

The RoundOne is a 12" span 1oz indoor and garden flyer. Ever dreamt of flying in your garden? What about looping and stall turning in your garden? Well now you can. RoundOne has been designed with stability and manoeuvrability in mind. The result is a model that can be flown in tight spaces with ease and a lot of fun.

The RoundOne originally used a Falcon 'Breeze Block' 35MHz receiver/servo module (as shown in the image). It has now been reworked to use either a Parkzone Vapor (PKZ3352) or AR6400 type receiver module. RoundOne can be powered using either a Parkzone PKZ3624 brushed motor/gearbox or a AP03 brushless motor (requires AR6400 and XP-3A ESC).

Watch the video of Paul flying RoundOne in his garden.

The kit includes pre-cut depron and carbon parts; pre-printed balsa parts, full size plan, foam wheel, wire and all other materials required to complete the model. Just add the radio, battery, motor and a little glue to fly.

Specifications:

  • Wingspan: 12" (305mm)
  • Flying Weight: 1.2oz (33g typical)
  • Controls: 3 (Rudder, Elevator, Throttle - optional Elevons)
  • Flight Time: 14 mins

Items Needed to Complete:

  • PKZ3352 or AR6400 type receiver receiver module
  • Brushed power:
    • Parkzone PKZ3624 & EFL9051 prop
  • Brushless power:
    • AP03 7000Kv
    • XP-3A brushless ESC
    • (requires AR6400 type receiver)

The simplest solution is to use a PKZ3624/EFL9051 and PKZ3352 receiver.

A number of options for Flight Line Plans RoundOne Kit may be purchased at discounted prices. Please make sure you select matching motor, ESC and battery options - call or email if you are unsure. Selecting an option will add its price to the total.
