I'm building a Strato Blaster and was wondering is there any modifications
that I should do to improve strength and performance. I would like to up
scale this once I have this one completed. Any thoughts on that as well.
Thanks for any advice.
Try to eliminate as much slop as you can in the elevator linkage as
designed. You can route the antenna happily through the other boom, but I'd
make an internal tunnel if you can, not cut through the skin as recommended
for the elevator pushrod. Never liked that.
This is not a terribly high performance glider, but it does glide well in a
sport R/G kind of way. Certainly a vast improvement over the Astro Blaster,
though it uses the same wing. If I had the time and inclination I'd mess
around with the airfoil but I don't so I haven't.
The Strato Blaster lends itself well to CHAD staging due to the loacation of
the motor mount relative to the CG. Flown many times on D12-0 to D12 or E15,
now of course you'd use the E9.
It's not light, so eliminate all the unnecessary weight you can as you go.
Small battery pack, small receiver, small servos but not too light.
Thanks Mike I was going to make the mod with the control wire and the
antenna before I covered the foam as it makes NO sence to do it after as the
I thank you for your thoughts.
