Zulu E

When penning Zulu E my self-imposed design brief was to produce an electric powered, traditionally built sports model that had the character of a scale light aircraft, trainer-like handling and the strength to cope with everyday flying from a grass strip. The finished article incorporates inspiration from all sorts of full-size aircraft, particularly home-builts. When bouncing the design around in my mind I also had to consider the power system, using the 100W/lb rule of thumb. Moreover, I didn’t want things to get too expensive, so I decided to base the system around a 3-cell 2000mAh Li-Po. With a target flight duration of 7 – 10 minutes and the complete model hopefully weighing under 3 lb (1.4kg), I calculated that an E-flite Park 480 motor / APC 10 x 4.7” prop combination would be ideal, supplied via a Tornado 40A ESC.
