Projeti

I just bought a Projeti electric flying wing and brushless motor set. It promises to go 3 times as fast as the Zagi, still with amazing acrobatics. I’m taking it to Burning Man in August. It’s going to need a more artistic paint job than what comes out of the box. Too bad I don’t have an artistic girlfriend.

Everything is coming from Northeast Sailplane Products http://www.nesail.com

I’ll probably be lighting the plane with something from one of these companies:

Here is a calculator for LEDs I might need

What is in the mail to me from Vermont:

  • projeti plane
  • hitec electron 6 (neg), channel 42
  • 2 MX-50 servos (Sal at NESail said they were a little better than HS-55’s and the same price.
  • 2 12″ servo extenders
  • (brand name?) 35 amp controller
  • Mega 16/15/4 motor
  • 6×4 prop
  • $80 2100 3s mah Thunderpower LiPoly battery
  • prop adapter

Sal at NESail tells me that at WOT, the motor/prop draws 26 amps, 24,000rpm, 237 watts

I’m planning on getting a hard-sided archery case to haul it to Burning Man. Maybe this one on the right, from http://www.unlimitedoutdoors.com/accessories.html

Or maybe I’ll just spend $40 on this plain case on eBay
