Marabou Stork decommissioned

Depron airplanes are easy to build, but also do not last long. Few weeks ago I decommissioned by Marabou Stork. It did not crashed, it was flying almost fine, but it had at least a few problems:

  1. Motor was overheating. Just like that
  2. Wing that I originally designed for something weighting around 450g, now had to work with twice that much weight. Take offs were, at least, problematic
  3. It was big and slow and was not giving enough fun

So, to paraphrase Monty Python:

This is a late marabou stork

It's not a complete end of this design. Wing is still in pretty good condition and I have a plan to reuse it in experimental twin-motor design. But that later this year… In a mean time, last video footage.
