follow up on a Mini Neptune
I posted in March how well this model flew so it requires a follow up just to confirm my first impressions. The model has over 60 flights with no hits or errors, and is basically my go to flyer and is routinely the first thing I throw in the air. It is flown aggressively and usually at tree top levels with that satisfying feeling that you get from something that is so much fun it ought to be illegal. Take it up vertical as far as it will go,**** the motor and put it into a spin and pull a little up on the elevons and you can almost get it completely flat. Did I mention that it is fun. Nothing has failed unless you count having to lift the magnets up as they were settling into the foam. Do not make it nose heavy as it will fly like a dog and I keep mine close to the ragged edge on balance. As I said in my last post I'm using 250 MAH packs and am getting 3.5 minutes of mostly wide open fun, and it saves weight. If you learn to toss it off in a discus throw without really putting a lot of force into the launch you will get consistent launches without a mad scramble to get to the sticks. For the money it is hard to beat and flying satisfaction is always high. This and its bigger brother the Neptune are some of the most entertaining models you'll ever own and for their price you will think you stole them.
This is fun
Motion RC did its usual super fast delivery The assembly is faster as you only have to glue the 2 vertical fins on and your done. The package was secure and nothing was out of order. The equipment area looks small but it is larger than another Tech one offering in my collection. If using Spectrum equipment you will need elevon 2 setting and keep the control limits within the limits specified. This wing is if nothing else maneuverable and a barrel of fun doing those maneuvers. Like all flying wings the roll rate is spectacular and normal loops and inverted are easily done. Vertical is really good and the motor is more than a match for the airframe. But realize that this model is not made for blazing speed. I'm using a 250 mah battery as the Spectrum receiver takes more room than a horizontal plug type receiver. Throttle management gives me enough time to enjoy the flight. With a flying weight of 3.6 ounces it did well in 5 mph wind. if there is a downside it is not with the model but the availability of spare parts. Props in particular are the most obvious shortage and hopefully MRC has a large Tech one order on its way. It is reasonably priced and fun to fly, for me it is a winner.
