This started life as a Delta wing model and then had an upper wing grafted on - still needs some work

The original "Oblong" was a plan by J J Rutter in the 1994 Radio Modeller, with 50" span and 4 channels for  40 glow motors. I have scaled it down to 36" span (for obvious reasons) and electric power. Materials are balsa, spruce and ply.

Motor: 145 watt E max 2822 1200 Kv (£ 7)

ESC:  20 amp ESC with BEC (£7.80) 

Servos: 4 off E max ES 08A giving 1.5 kg.cm (£ 3.25 each) Battery: Polypower 3S x 1000 lipo (£6.90).
