This basic, entry level twin is the easiest of Ivan's multis to build and is recommended for anyone building their first electric twin. It has good flight characteristics and is very aerobatic. Ivan's prototype flies for 9 minutes on 1900mAh nicads or 15 minutes with 3000mAh NiMH cells. Performs extremely well at lighter wing loading afforded with modern 3S LiPo packs.
