I just created a nice little Google map with the places to fly (mostly) electric models in the central Florida area.

let me know if there is an error or you want a place added.

#4 in the transmitter

After the wings broke Mid-air, doing a high-G loop, I thought it was toast. but the only thing I lost was the Pheonix-35 ESC. Wlee I fainally got a new one and it was re-maidened today.

It used to be powered differently ( http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=398099 ) , and it was fast, But Now I got a MUCH hotter motor in it and it is pulling 382 Watts
I am surpirsed that little double stack CD-rom motor can handle it.

Specs:
GBX double stack, 7turn, 12mag, delta wind.
Pheonix 35 ESC
3S 2400mah 20C Polyquest
5*5 APC prop
21oz flying weight
9.77 Volts
39.1 Amps
382 Watts (290Watts/pound)
24,210 RPM
Apparently the prop tip speed is 360mph (0.46 Mach) so maybe I should go to 4S

No hand launching this baby, it has enough thrust and prop clearance to scoot along the grass and takeoff on it's own.
