For the first time I tried some slope soaring and flew the parkzone t-28 today for over an hour at Frankfort, KY. The winds were of the of the south at 20mph gusting to 35mph. I powered up at the launch and a couple times playing around, but the motor was shut off at least 59 minutes of the flight. Afterward the 3s 2200mAh pack was still 4.05v per cell for a total voltage of 12.15v! Next time I'll go for 2 hours.

It was a blast and I'm hooked now. It would have not been possible without the help from friends/members of the Louisville Area Soaring Society

I'm using a fairly new Chrome 220mAh 25C LiPo from ConceptRC.com in my brushless mCP-x and it already has more punch than my thunderpower and hyperion lipos which are already broken in.

Setup is a C05M 11,500kv brushless outrunner, 8t pinion, XP-7A ESC, and steve convertor w/reistor to make it a PNP motor kit. Frame upgrades are carbon fiber lower frame brace, micro-heli swash, micro-heli tail motor mount, and Orange KBDD blades.

Not the best video but this is what I shot this evening.
