Junkers JU52/3 Maiden Flight!

First flight is me (I’ve only been flying for a month or so with a Parkzone Mustang & Sukhoi so I was being very careful!). My brother who’s been flying for 17 odd years took over for the second flight.

It has more then enough power, you can fly it 1/2 throttle most of the time. I will tip stall if you go too slow but you can get a realistic looking speed out of it without this happening. Having such a large body it is affected by wind but it’s easy to control.

I did have one oopsy, tried changing the props from 3×3 to 3×2 and it didn’t have enough power, bit of a hard “landing” and the battery came out through the nose. Some glue sorted that out pretty quickly and back to the 3×3 props.

It started getting a little dark after than but there is some video footage. The LED on the AR6400 makes a chunk of it glow.

As long as you don’t go too slow it’s very stable. First two flights only used 64mah in the battery and the second one 90mah. Looks like I could probably fly it for at least 20mins on the 240mah battery.

It’s faster than what I’m used to with the ultra micro parkzones, it certainly feels more substantial but stable.

Now I just need to do some more test flights then add some trim pieces.
