Well today I flew the Funder and Lightening for the second time. I maidened it yesterday and painted it thereafter. I started building it on Monday and finished it the next day. I was waiting on parts for the rest of the week. I'm running a 1050 kv motor with a 9x3 prop. It has a 22 Amp heads up r/c speed controller. And it's powered with a 1500 mah 3 cell lipo. It flies pretty well so far. It flew today in a 13 mph wind and didn't seem to have any problems. I hope to put light strings on the tail booms for night flying.
Flew this plane today with a 10*5 SF prop and a 9*3 SF prop on a power-up sport 400 and a 22 amp esc and it did not get hot at all. This setup can easily run a 10 inch and a 9 inch prop. Looks great in the sky too!
