The eHopper™ is a 1:10 scale reproduction of John Chotia's 1981 Weedhopper Model C (JC-24C) ultralight and has been faithfully reproduced from Chotia's original hand drawn plans. Featuring the simple snap together assembly you've come to expect from Stevens AeroModel combined with awesome scale detail and superb in-flight manners.

Product Includes:
Laser Engineered™ precision laser cut balsa and plywood components.
Comprehensive hardware including wheels, pushrods, cable, and control horns.
Thorough, photo illustrated instruction manual.
Reference plan set.

Designed for the following equipment:
Spektrum™ Computer Radio and AR6400* “Puck”
OR
Conventional Radio/Receiver and two (2) JR S185 Servos*

Brushed Power System (Recommended):
GWS IPS-S2 [GW/IPS-DX2BB-2XCS]
GWS 050 ESC [GWESC050A]
GWS 7x6 Slow Fly Propeller [GW/EP7060]
7.4V  Hyperion 120mAh CX G3 LiPo [HP-LG325-0120-2S]

Brushless Power System:
E-Flite™ Park 250 [EFLM1130]
Motor Mount Tube [EFLM1960]
Castle Creations Thunderbird 6 ESC [CSETB6]
GWS 7x6 Slow Fly Propeller [GW/EP7060]
7.4V Hyperion 240mAh CX G3 LiPo [HP-LG325-0240-2S]

*The lightest results, a 4.5oz Flying weight, will be achieved with the Spektrum™ AR6400 "puck" which includes an integrated receiver and linear pull servos.  The use of the AR6400 mandates the use of a Spektrum™ computer transmitter such as the DX6i, DX7, or similar and will require programing a custom mix of Aileron to Rudder at 100% to achieve the proper flight control arrangement.

For those without Spektrum™ equipment, the eHopper™ can be built to a 5.5oz flying weight with support for conventional 72mhz and 2.4ghz micro receivers (4g or less).  The only requirement is the use of JR S185 servos [JRPS185] for flight control.

Performance on par with the real thing! I love my eHopper. Visit JC-24c for Weedhopper history, drawings, and scale detail photos. www.jc-24c.com
Skip Delius (W4VTH@comcast.net)
The eHopper is a real joy to build, but be sure to read through the manual first. If using discrete servos, do not mount the gas tank when shown on page 22 or you will not be able to access the servo arm mounting screw. Wait until final assembly. Note that on page 29 the rudder servo is shown on the right, this is where the elevator should be, page 30 shows the correct servo location. I positioned the elevator servo arm 180d from where shown as it more closely approximates the original's location. Finally, as a personal preference, I like to build all sub-assemblies before covering, but what ever works for you. Now I'm waiting for a break in the weather to fly.
