Current (2016), Successful Flying Setup

Power Considerations:

- Using the 10S 5000 30C battery (2 x 5S in series employing a spark arrestor), Dualsky XM6350CA-16 motor and 18x10 APC prop  yields about 1800watts at the ESC.

- 1800 watts Translates to 400 watts/kg! This is adequate for good aerobatics. 

- Flying with this configuration yields a plane a little under powered. I would suggest a 19x10 or 20x10 propellor....

Comments after about 30 flights:

- The plane produces very low noise - pleasingly quiet in flight. I like calling it "quiet authority".

- I find that grease and snug tight wheel collars (no play along the shaft) contribute to this quiet performance. A better result still could be achieved employing Dubro Low Bounce wheels.

- Notice in, photos below, the Rx/Servos power battery. The HiFei ESC is opto so the Rx battery was required. Take great care to ensure the power pack is always well charged since the 4 digital metal gear servos are hungry and can halt the Rx if the power draw-down is too great.

Overall Performance:

- Altogether a nice performing scale aerobatic plane. 

- This plane has good presence in the sky.
