Recently received a JJRC H95 "airplane" and it inspired me to make use of an old unfinished Guillows Piper Cub 95 that I built the air frame for a few years back. It fly's but it struggles to generate enough lift with the small props I have on it.

Doing some research now for some larger props that will fit the 1mm shaft of the 8520 motors. If I can get it to generate more lift I will put a small AKK AIO camera/vTX combo in it for some FPV flights.

Used an old Boldclash B03 Pro FC in it that I had sitting on the bench, and harvested the battery bay from an old Eachine E010 frame that had the correct mounting hole in it for the FC. A little bit of hot glue later and voila! :)

DJI has always owned the drone photography market, but smaller acrobatic drones are starting to enter the market. They have the advantage of close proximity flight indoors and around people. There's more artistic freedom and..
