Blade2 - Electric Conversion Glider

The 2 metre Blade 2 is designed to be either slope soarer or electric. It has a 2 piece wing for easier transportation and a 1 piece V tail.

The fuselage has a removable canopy and is larger enough to take a decent size outrunner motor and 3S to 4S liPo pack.

My own Blade 2 has a Hacker B40-6-L 4.4/1 geared motor with a 70 amp ESC.
The battery is a 3S liPo, 2300Mah, 25c, and a 12/8 folding cam prop.
The all up weight is 1900 grams. The motor pulls 65amps on full power.
It just needs a 10 sec blast on full throttle to give it a vertical ascent to become a small dot in the sky.

An Alternative set up is:

1 x folding cam PROP 12.5/6.5
1 x GRP motor mount, D = 42mm for AXI2820
1 x AXI 2826/10
1 x 42mm spinner with cooling hole
1 x center piece of 45mm, 5mm hole to HE Spinner
A pulsed x Jeti Spin 55 BL controller with BEC

The model is a delight to fly and handles very well with no bad vices. It can handle slow turns easily without dropping a wing.

The energy retention needs to be seen to be believed as it glides around the sky!
