Great Planes Uproar
Great Planes Uproar. This model has a GMS .40 ball-bearing glow
engine, and swings a 10x6 propeller at over 15,000 rpm. There are
5 Futaba servos, a receiver, and a 600 mAh battery pack onboard.
The Monokote color scheme was taken from the Sig Super Chipmunk
control line model. The bottom is all black & white checkerboard,
so the contrast between top and bottom is about as stark as you
can get. Because the engine is so heavy, I needed to cut a separate
hatch for locating the receiver and battery pack about 4 inches
behind the trailing edge of the wing (didn't want to have to add
dead weight just for balancing purposes). The final weight is embarrassingly
about 2 ounces of the listed maximum, but that is because of the
ridiculously heavy GMS engine/muffler combination.
