Sqeek is a 9.5" (240mm) span model for the Spektrum AR6400. Sqeek supplies spectacular aerobatic performance from a single Lipo cell and brushless power. Although more suited to outdoor flying, even in reasonably windy conditions, this model can also be flown indoors in a large hall by competent flyers. Beware though as sqeek can move quickly!
There's been a revolution underway since the introduction of 2.4GHz equipment and in particular the super small versions now offered in increasing numbers with miniature ready to fly planes. for follow-on designs to accept re-use of these items and are introducing several new plans based around the Spektrum AR6400 receiver.
Sqeek is powered by the hexTronik 2 gram brushless outrunner D1000-7700 motor driving a Tri-Turbofan prop supplied from a 180-240mAh Lipo cell. The Spektrum AR6400 integrate receiver and 2 servos and allow wired connection of an external single cell ESC rated at 3A. Flight times can be in the ~10+ minutes range and the all up weight is only around 20 grams. Construction is mainly Depron with a balsa fuselage and local ply strengthening. The finished model benefits from colouring with acrylic paint.
Sqeek is supplied as an 'Instructional Plan and Materials' which includes full size drawings of component parts and comprehensive build instructions supported by a materials pack. There is also information on connecting the ESC and Tx and servo set-up. This plan format has already been acclaimed with the Goolie design; we hope you find it user friendly.
As with other Flight Line PlansTM models, it's remarkable how well this model flies on around 6 or 7 watts of power and despite its size it flies in an exceptionally stable yet aerobatic fashion with an impressive turn of speed. Sqeek is capable of all rolling and looping manoeuvres and inverted flight and can be flown both fast and slow due to its light wing loading and high power to weight ratio.
