That's a nice plane, any idea of the wing area, will an LA 25 pull it ok?


Thanks,

Not sure of the area. The wing I think is 48 long? The plane is a little small then a Nobler. We had. Cobra 2826 in it, but only for the nose weight. 2820 could easily fly it and maybe even a 2814. His was not super light it was about 44 ozs. I think an LA 25 would have no problem pulling it. I have many that had 40 size engines on them.

I posted a couple of photos of the E-Bug Lite here a while back. Over this past weekend I had a chance to finish up the electric system installation. Attached is a photo of the "business side" of the E-Bug Lite's nose.

Steve Millet sent me a spool of .010 solid wire (he got this from his dad's music store; it's guitar e-string music wire!) Since the E-Bug is under 40 ounces all up (32.5 actually with battery on board) I can fly it legally on either .012 cables or .010 solids. Can't wait for the maiden voyage!

That's an interesting project Bob. I like the smaller planes. I can't seem to fly the big ones that pull so hard. I think there's a sweet spot for electric that's right around a 575 Sq. In. wing.
