The HOOT is a aerobatic Speed 300 electric made from FOAM (Unskinned Sturdy Board or DEPRON). It is powered with a SimProp Power 300 and a MJ 5:1 gear box driving a Grish 8x6 prop. The battery is an 8 cell, 700 mah Maxell NiMH pack. Wingspan is 30" and the weight with battery is 13oz. Templates, instructions, and pictures are available in the zip file. Click Here for ZIP file
The HOOT is capable of most aerobatics not requiring rudder control. Inside/outside loops and combinations are easy. Roll rate is very fast if the aileron throws are stepped up. The large wing area makes slow flying a snap.
HOOT MOTOR UPGRADE - The speed 300 was replaced with a MINI AC 1215/16 brushless mated to the MPJet 5:1 BB gearbox driving a APC 10x7SF prop. Aerobatic capability is up by 150% or MORE! Battery pack is a 8 cell HECELL 1100 NiMH which gives full aerobatic capability at 3/5 throttle and 13-14 min flights.
