--e-NERD and a normal NERD
e-NERD uses a Speed 600 motor, Graupner 8x4.5 folding prop, 7x800 mah cells, Kyosho BEC speed control.. flying weight 46-1/2 oz. The normal NERD weighs 42 oz.
Took quite a shoehorn to fit all that stuff into a 1 inch wide fuselage...
The externals, such as they are..
A Cirrus CS-51 servo on the rudder, Futaba S-133 on the elevator.. cooling holes for the battery in the windows.. the lightning bolt of course is a legally mandated insignia.. as is the overall yellow color. Failed miserably with the direct drive.. adding a gearbox and a 9x6 prop.. failed miserably..
Following severe disappointments with the eNERD, it sat around unflying mainly because
it wasn't gonna fly with the props and stuff selected.. Then one day,, 8-12-01..
I took the equipment out of the e-Aerobat and stuffed it into the eNERD.
The biggest change was adding a Master 3:1 gear box, and an APC 12x8 eprop. The previous direct drives had failed to even taxi in a convincing manner.. hand-launches merely landed.. this power system gives a sprightly take off, good climb, lots of manuverability.
