My family and I were lucky enough to be able to have another beach vacation last week on Fripp Island. I wasn't sure how "flyable" the beaches were going to be but it turned out to be great (but only at low tide!). We also got very lucky with the weather.
I took a of my few jets, my Acromaster and of course my EZ Star clone One thing about this particular area was that high tide pretty much wiped out the entire beach area, so you could only fly at low(er) tide. The sand was great for a runway though....so flat and packed My kids loved all the wildlife on the island...check the pics below. The beaches on Fripp are pristine. Also, it's not everyday you can hand feed an 8 point buck in the wild!...Continue Reading

So I now have about 18-20 flights on the Kyosho T33A 48" ws that I got a few years ago from a member here. My set up is as follows:
Stock 75mm fan (minus spinner)
CC PH 60
4S 3300mah 20C - 30C
AUW 39.5 oz
Reading earlier discussions on RCG regarding this exact setup, I was under the impression that the stock fan would explode at around ~500 watts. Maybe I'm just lucky so far because when I ran the numbers tonight on my watt meter I got the following on a fresh pack:
After 10 seconds.....Settled to:
The Mega is only rated at a max of 35a, (I think?). I rarely use full throttle not even during hand launch so maybe it will last. I estimate the top speed is in the mid 70's, maybe a bit faster if I do a fast pass early in the flight.
This is one of the best flying models I have ever flown. It tracks so good and is very predictable. Landing is easy too, it slows down nice.
