Construction / tuning:
The building of the ARF plane is quick and easy. All servos, motor &
BEC are already installed. Only some minor assembly was necessary:
attach the tail wings, fix the wings, check the servo direction as well as
motor direction. In my case I still needed to solder on the BEC the
green Multiplex high Amp plug to fit to my system.
The only deviation to the manual was that I added some strong tape on
the belly to give additional protection during landings.
The entire procedure was completed during an evening.
The programming was also easy and basically I was able to copy the
settings of the Blizzard - both planes are very similar.
The only issue is, that basically when you would like to store the plane
in its box, you need to de-assemble it completely - as well as
re-assemble it the next time on the field (this is same as when you
bought it) - minimum assembly time: 15 min!
The first flight ended with a bit of disappointment! The BEC break was
not programmed and so the WOW did not fly "WOW" like - the breaking
of a turning prop is unbelievable.
So I had to abort and google the solution on my mobile - a few minutes
later I found the information - however I had to try three or four times
until the programming worked. Then the Wow was send again up in
the air. A few clicks left - a few down and good it was! The CG I
changed to 5 mm forward of the indicated point.
The speed of the Wow does however not reach the levels of the
Blizzard (Multiplex) - nevertheless it is a fun plane and will get quite
some flights under its wings during coming winter season.
