Mibo Dart short build log!

April 2, 2010

This is high quality a 60″ sailplane which can be bought in two versions, as a glider or electric sailplane. It is a perfect allrounder. It is great for slopes, high launch start or for flat terrain. The plane flies fantastic and it can even thermal. The vertical stabilizer is factory prepared for the rudder to be cut out. I bought the electric version for 220€.
The plane can be purchased here:

First I have started building the wings. I used Hitec servos as you can see on the picture below.

Preparing servos to be installed. Hitec HS-65MG for flaps and ailerons.

I found that the most difficult part of the build was installing the flap servos and linkage.

TURNIGY K-Force 40A Brushless ESC

HXT UBEC

Rhino 1250mAh 31P 20C

Turnigy Speed Controller Programming Card

After the success of the 2.4 Ghz sistem the old one became more affordable. I bought the new Jeti REX 6 JBC receiver for Dart.

Maiden was a success. No trimming was needed to get this plane flying straight. Allthough not excpected the power setup gives unlimited verticals. Here are some pictures from the maiden flight. Video on the slope will follow.

    Hi!
    Nice Report. How does your dart Fly? Is it like a hotliner or not so fast? How much A does your setup Need? Can you use 4s lipos?

      Hi Martin!

      I am very satisfied with my Dart. I mostly fly on the slope with it. It can go very fast but not as a hotliner. It can not thermal very well due to weight. It is a perfect plane for the slope. My setup draws about 35 Amps which pushes the Dart almost vertical. There is room for 4s batteries but you will have to move the servos all the way back. If you use 4s then don’t go over 2000 mAh.

      My best
