Bob Ryan’s L’il Plank

Here is Bob Ryan’s  latest iteration of the L’il Plank. In his own words:

“This one is electric powered, has a  slightly wider cord and a roomier fuselage. Test flown today, she weighs 165 grams using a 350mah 2S battery, a 7 amp speed controller with a Hacker A10-7L motor turning a 5×4.25 APC prop. Very sensitive on the elevator (as you would expect) but once the throw was reduced it flys remarkably well. It seems very sensitive to lift and has a better speed range than I expected. I think I’ll build another wing with straight dihedral and with ailerons. I know it’s a bit crazy but I’m enjoying the challenge.”
