Review: Flyrace Dolphin - C F3P

Posted by Keenan Smith on April 8, 2013 at 9:45 PM

Well i am Beta Testing this plane for flyrace of China

the plane is called the Dolphin - C F3P

the Specs Are as follows:

Span: 852mm

Length: 935mm

Weight: 120-150g RTF

Price: *Unkown at this moment in time*

Required Equipment:

2x 5g Servos

1x 9g servo

1x 4 channel Reciever

a 200-400mah 2S Lipo

a 6A ESC

and a 1084-2204 Brushless outrunner

Stated build time 2hrs


 

Actual Construction of this plane from box to Build was around 2-3hrs

the manual was Great, lots of pictures and very little ching-lish, there was also plenty of carbon...( i had enough leftover to re-enforce the nose)

it also comes with these handy little guides that ensure the Fuse is built Sraight and level, thus when combined with the slot together *and Glue* construction Technique

Makes for a Rather Easy build

 

Pictures:


this plane is very light, so i will need to limiit my throttle otherwise i'd have a 5:1 power to weight ratio on a 2204 motor an 8 inch prop

a few things that i didn't like however was that, the paint chipped to easily... (only cosmetic), the landing gear was a little too Flimsy and Bends a little too much for my liking (under the load of 3 servos, a 370mah 2S lipo and an Rx), the ailerons Warp to much at around half - Full Deflection ..

and that the was not Quite enough Pull Pull Wire

 

However Flyrace has Told me that Due to the model i recieved being a Pre-Production Model, He Can assure me that he will include more Pull-Pull Line in the Production models as well as Thicker Carbon for the landing legs and some carbon to Stiffen the Ailerons (as they are prone to Warping)

 

I will upload a flight video When my electronics arrive and i have installed them onto the plane

 

Until then Keep an eye Out..
