My First McLean Vindicator

I bought this Vindicator used on eBay and really like how it flies. It has been through a lot and is a bit heavy from several repairs but when the wind comes up, it is a blast!

Vindicator (old)

My first Vindicator. This one has a hatched fuse, big tail and 6062 airfoil.

Specs

Airfoil: modified 6061
Span: 60.0
Area: 395 sq in
Surface loading:
Weight: 43 oz (it has been repaired a few times!)
Control: Aileron, Rudder and Elevator
Radio: Hitec Super Slim, JR-341s in the wing and HS-81s in the fuse. 5 cell 600ae sized NiMh pack, which is more like 1000 MaH.

This particular Vindicator started it’s life on the West Coast in SoCal. I think it is about 5-6 years old. I have deceided to relocate it to the midwest and give it a new area to rip through.

It has been out several times and is fast becoming one of my favorites. It is very stable yet rolls and turns with the best of them.
