Scorpio Palio Sport
||2 x HS-81
(ailerons) & 2 x HS300
||Jeti ESC BEC 70 Amp
||8 cells from CP1700 to
8 cell NiMH 3000-HV
||4 + motor
||12x9 (30 Amp & 210 Watts)
from wing edge
||Take between 8-15 hours for someone with
limited experience in building. 3 Documents came with the plane
- The User Manual is very clear, but in Italian
- Translation of the above, in English
- Clear map shows all the parts, where they go, in 3D.
I followed the instruction, almost to the letter, just added the 2 wing
edges, at the end, to be comfortable. Some time spend on cutting the front
to install the motor, as it comes as a Glider version. I also hope that
the firewall will hold, with the AXI motor vibrations.
||Very easy. Just push the plane, with it's
wingspan, and the motor full speed, it climbs straight and clean
||First trimming was really tricky for me.
No surprise in flight. Tried to push the speed and the wing did not like
it, heavy and noisy vibrations occurred at some point. Is it flying good
as a glider ? Don't know, as I don't have enough experience in gliders.
I'll be back in several months on this, after I will know more
||Glides forever, unless you use spoilerons.
Did not stall so far
||Scorpio stopped the production of this
plane. Cost of making too high.
