Chris Olsen UPSET II

Post by stuart mackay »

Got some air under the wings today of this Terry Westrop (RIP) built Chris Olsen designed Upset II.
Power is a rubber mounted Merco 61/ APC prop running on a pipe and controlled by a LemonRx module driving a Lemon 6 channel Receiver.
Unlimited vertical performance and very pure handling as you would expect from an airframe built by somoene of Terry's calibre.

Interesting, as I've just bought the kit from BelAir as my winter project to replace my KingPin!

I'm probably going to make it electric, though I have a selection of decent .61s available. The main reason for going electric is that some of the local flying sites have restrictions on IC power flying, but not electric. I also happen to have a motor and batteries available from my heli conversions.

I was always a fan of Chris Olsen's designs, as they just looked right -- and if they look right, they usually fly right! :)
