SAVAGE Mini is a high-performance 3D aerobatic park-flyer made of virtually unbreakable EPP foam for 200-300 W brushless motors. A couple of hours with a bottle of cyano are all you need to finish this model capable of classic pattern aerobatics as well as all 3D stunts. SAVAGE is not just for skilled pilots; on small rates, it could be flown by any Sunday flyer who already knows how to do a loop, stall turn and roll. And if something (or your fingers on sticks) goes wrong, thanks to the low all-up weight there usually is not much damage - and even if so, the EPP foam is so easy to repair!
The all-in-one wing EPP foam wing with a symmetrical wing section is reinforced with a pair of carbon spars; the pre-cut bays are ready for your servos, indeed. The horizontal part of the fuselage is thoroughly reinforced by a web of carbon spars; the large area vertical part of the fuselage (together with the SFG winglets) makes the knife edge easy. The plywood firewall is anchored to the foam fuselage with carbon spars as well; the pre-cut bays are ready to accommodate the elevator and rudder servos. The empennage is also made of EPP foam. The control surface linkage is made of 3D-printed horns, plastic clevises and short carbon push rods. The carbon main undercarriage with lightweight foam wheels and EPP pants is secured by 4 bolts to a reinforcement plate anchored to the fuselage with 3D-printed plastic holders.
You will need at least a four-channel RC set; a computer radio featuring dual and exponential rates is strongly recommended.
A Sunday flyer's SAVAGE Mini would work nicely with analogue micro servos with metal gears like KAVAN GO-13MG, Hitec HS-65MG etc. If you are serious about aerobatics even a little bit, you should go for high-speed & torque digital servos like KAVAN GO-1013MG, Hitec HS-5065MG or similar.
We recommend KAVAN C2830-1300, Model Motors AXI 2212/20 V2 or similar brushless motors with the APC 10x4.7SF propeller with 3S LiPo battery.
At least a 30A speed controller featuring a powerful switching BEC should be used - especially when high speed & torque digital servos are installed - like the KAVAN PRO-30SB.
You can use 3S LiPo flight pack 1200–1300 mAh at least 40C.
Designed and manufactured in the Czech Republic.
