2.33:1 Gear with 8x6 recommended from hobby-lobby
||19.4 oz (flying)
from wing edge
|front edge of the hole
||Easy, all foam. Takes about 4 hours, for someone slow, if
first plane. Manual very clear. Glue to rubber on the wheels, before first
flight. If not, it will go out of the wheels quickly. Put some tape on the
wings, to strengthen them, in an X shape on each wing. Add a small piece of wood, to put below the
wire, that holds the wheels, in order to make it stronger.
||Hand launch very easy. Standing, just throw it, even with no wind.
Can take off as well from the ground, but don't do it until you feel
experienced enough (minimum 10 hours of flight)
||No Tricks. Easy to fly. Can do loops, when forced to, but
really not build for this. No inverted flight.
Too much speed on the Wingo may result in loosing control of the elevator.
The Wingo might then start a straight line to the ground. The only way to
exit from this situation, is to cut the motor immediately, and pull gently
on the elevator, hoping it will react.
||If good wind, can even land vertically. In any case, very
easy to land, with wheels
||The wing will go first, and the foam is not the strongest so
many parts could break apart. The nose could also break.
||Foam, almost unlimited repairs of the plane, available. Spare parts
available (not the wings). Epoxy to repair. Cyano will eat the foam.
||Recommended first plane, for beginners as everything is
easy. The box supplied is especially build as a stand
for the wingo, for repairs, or for traveling (special belts given in the
box to attach the Wingo to this stand, for easy travels).
The wingo can also be used for taking aerial
