OMPHobby T720 4 Channel RTF Stabilized Brushless RC Powered Glider Flight Test Review
This innovative ready to fly plane is an excellent flier, perfect for beginners, and can be assembled/disassembled for transport in under a minute. It’s really a great fun to fly plane. Find it here http://bit.ly/OMPHobby-T720
– Very clean configuration, with no protruding pushrods or control horns. Instead, the plane uses hidden control levers attached to their also hidden internal servos.
– Can be quickly assembled and disassembled for transport or storage. The wings and horizontal stabilizer are quickly and simply snapped into place.
– Four channel RC aircraft (throttle, aileron, rudder, and elevator control ).
– 6 axis stabilized (three axis gyros, and three axis accelerometers). If you get into trouble, switch to Normal mode and let go of the sticks. The plane will quickly and automatically level itself.
– EPP foam body, with EPO foam crash absorbing nose. The plane is very crash resistant as demonstrated in the video.
– Selectable two position switch on the controller allows easy transition between two available flight modes. “Normal” mode provides gyro stabilized flight with automatic leveling. Should be very easy to fly by most beginner pilots. Second “Sport” mode also includes mild stabilization, but turns off angle restrictions allowing aerobatic flight.
-The controller includes a “Trick” button thagt conducts an automatic loop of the plane for beginner fliers.
– Although the controller has no trim buttons, unstable pitch, roll, and yaw can be corrected by calibrating the aircraft’s stabilization system. Level the plane on a flat surface and connect it to the controller. Then move and hold both control sticks downward and outward to calibrate.
– Brushless 1406 KV2500 motor. As this is a pusher plane, the motor and its propeller should be well shielded from damage for most crashes.
– Common 7.4V 300mah battery with red JST connector provides about 18 minutes of flight time. Low voltage cutoff shuts down the motor when voltage drops below 7 Volts (3.5V per cell).
– Extremely light weight at only 146 grams with its installed battery. May not require registration in most countries.
– Instructions did not include propeller assembly. However it was relatively intuitive how to connect the propeller (although some may make the mistake of installing the propeller backwards if not careful).
– Propeller does not fold when unpowered, so it will create some drag when gliding.
– I’m not sure that all of the crashes that I encountered were entirely my fault. Extreme maneuvers might loosen the quick attach wings and stabilizers so that they become disengaged from their control levers. This can be easily corrected by attaching some small pieces of cellophane tape at their roots to more firmly hold them in place during hard maneuvers.
