Modifications to the Dragonfly Glider

Le Mon 25 January 2016

The plane had some pretty big design flaws in it among them were teh wings collapsing and the motors burning out. So based on their ideas and suggestions I modified my Dragonfly in the hope of avoiding the problems and failures the other owners had encountered.

It sat in a box for quite some time before I decided to mount it on my large(ish) electric Fox Glider. This page describes the connections between the various onboard electrical components.
