Leprechaun V3 from DANE RC


This building kit is redesigned with the greatest care by Dane-RC, to keep the elegant look and fell intended by the original creator; Dick Twomey. This model is a pleasure to both assemble and fly, due to the high precision parts that interlock perfectly.

V2 and V3 are similar in appearance and size and the accessories fit them both the difference is that V2 is constructed as the original Leprechaun designed by Dick Twomey, but V3 has got some new constructions which make it easier to build

  • The Building kits are with  ailerons, but you also have the option to make it without
  • The wing is made in a new design, the main beam is now constructed in poplar wood, space has been made for the servo to the ailerons, and some nice new details have been made, now the whole wing can be assembled without drawing, as everything fits together like a puzzle
  • Tail plans now have the possibility that it can be screwed on with nylon screws, but the possibility of mounting with rubber bands is still there

The kit includes all wooden parts needed for the assembly, motor and foil bought separately. 

The kit is designed for the following servor:

  • Rudder: 1 pc. D-Power AS575BB MG – or DS-570BB MG placed i the front with wier to rudder, if you separate the fuselager you must use an D-Power AS- or DS-340BB MG  mounted in the tail
  • Elevator: 1 pc. D-Power AS- or DS-840BB MG placed i the tail
  • Ailerons: 2 pcs. D-Power AS- or DS-225BB MG

To coat the leprechaun V3  you will need about 9 mtr of foil in the base color and about 2 mtr in the contrast color, to make it as Dane RC version. The foil we have used on our Leprechaun is for base Oralight transparent red and for contrast Oralight camdium yellow

If you want to have it motorized, you have to buy kit for motorsetup and if you only want to fly it as version V3, the Hacker A20-6 XL with propeller 16×8 “(3 lipocells) is the right choice, but if you later want to expand it to ver XL with the expansion set, then choose the kit for motorset XL and the Hacker A30-18 M V2 with propeller 18×11″(4 lipocells)
