The Chimera, created by Alex (IBCrazy). An FPV wing with a different sense of flight than you'd expect. While it is quite fast (up to 95mph), it's not a speed ship... it is an endurance plane.
- Top (recommended) speed - 95mph
- Battery: 2X 3S 4000 Lipo
- Range: 35 miles round trip
- Flight time: 45 minutes
- AUW: 1.8Kg (just under 4 lbs) with video gear
- Solid wood ailerons (not coroplast!)
Both the PRO and Standard version come with the following:
- Airplane frame
- Laminating film
- 2 tubes of adhesive
- Motor mounts
- Solid wood elevons
- 4 fiberglass spars
What gear to use? (from Ibcrazy himself)
Motor: I recommend a 400-600 Watt motor. More power is fun, but anything over 700Watts is more than you need with this airplane and will reduce flight times. I personally use a 3015 - 1640kv and 8X prop. A large 1500 kV and 9X5 or 9X6 would do well also.
Servos: The pro has cuts for 12 gram metal gear servos (I like the Corona 939MG's, personally). However a larger servo can be beneficial such as the Hitec HS82MG. I recommend a metal gear servo as the elevons are solid wood and can strip a servo in a wreck.
Average flight expectations:
- Weight: 2kG (4.2lbs)
- Range: 50km (35 miles)
- Speed: 110km/h (75mph)
- Distance: 60km (40 miles) round trip
- Batteries: 2X 3S 4000mAh Lipo
