Reverb

This is a glassfibre glider from HobbyKing called “Reverb”. I Usualy design and build my airplanes myself, but after almost 10 years I got my first ARF. I want to do two things with this airplane: Fast flying and thermal soaring.

The entire airframe is made out of glassfible, it is wery lightweight yet strong. The airplane’s total weight is about 900 grams and a large part of that is the motor and the battery. It has a wingspan of 1350 mm. I use the following setup:

  • Motor: Turningy 480L V-Spec Inrunner 1370kv
  • ESC: Turningy Plush 40A
  • Wing servos: Turningy TGY-777MG
  • Elevator servo: HobbyKing HK939MG
  • Propeller: 10 inch folding propeller with carbon fibre blades
  • Spinner: 35mm aluminum
  • Battery: 2200mAh 3 cell LiPo
