Description

The Mini Q is a lovely 80 cm (32") composite glass/carbon flying wing model that can be built as an electric sports racer or as a slope soarer. It is fast! We previously listed it as Tiny Q.

The kit consist of a very nicely molded glass and carbon one piece wing and pod. The attractively shaped fin is also molded and fits into a slot in the rear of the pod. A little fettling may be required to get it to slide into place smoothly. A nosecone molding and a carbon firewall are also supplied. Either one of these should be fitted depending on whether the model is built as a slope soarer or an electric racer . The firewall is about 33 mm diameter so it should be possible to mount 28 mm outrunner motors without too much difficulty.

A complete accessory pack is supplied including elevon pushrods with clevises, plywood servo mounts suitable for KST X08 servos, and carbon control horns and servo covers.

Note this model is quite highly loaded and is not suitable for less experienced modellers. Don't forget to reflex the elevons 2mm and start with a forward CG and launch over long grass until the trim has been dialled-in.

A lovely moulded model, as indicated a little bit of work with a file to get the fin/fin slot perfectly mated but no great hassle. The supplied wooden frames for the KST servos were used as well as the KST X08H servos themselves and a Hobby King motor which at the time was at a reduced price, a Spider SP2206 2300kv (33g) outrunner sitting outside in the fresh air, a 5.2X5.2 Cam Speed prop and a 3s 1300 mAh LiPo. I have the option of upgrading to a 2600kv motor if I feel I need more speed. I set my Tx. for 50% expo. recognising this baby might be a touch twitchy and was glad I did so for on its maiden flight I suffered my usual twitchy thumb syndrome (every maiden) so the flight was conducted circumspectly. The model in its present set up might not be the fastest in a straight line but oh boy pull in full elevator and it changes direction very fast. I was glad I chose the Yellow top surfaces with Black undersides and Yellow flashes as this makes it easier to decide which is up and which is down, do not let this model go too far away as if you do get a bit too far distinguishing which is up and down might be difficult.

Itís a nice model. Iíve put this one together as a powered model and was happy with the performance with the suggested motor and prop combo. I may need to buy another one to do as a dedicated slope model and as usual great service from Hyperflight.
