Had Time for one flight with the aspera this weekend and got some video of it speed potential . Last flight for the aspera probally this year,borrowed gear from my ebt to get it back in the air and now its back in the ebt and the torque 4014t 5s set up ive been running in it is going into a 55'' 3dhs plane this week .

Speed Video:Im Guessing 100 mph ? on the full throttle passes .

Ive been trying some different things out with the aspera,currently i have the torque revolution 4014t power system in the aspera and with the current prop(12x10e) its showing 800+ watts. Im pushing for 1000+ watts but that will be later when i can get some higher pitch props and maybe 1'' larger in diameter . The aspera has been a lot of fun,the reccomended power set from 3dhs gets it over 80mph straight line with 500+ watts.. looking forward to see how it performs in the air with the revolution power system.. its designed for .40 size planes or larger and is awesome in the 55'' 3dhs planes,with larger props it makes 1400+ watts on 5s,im limited in prop selection because the aspera is a smaller plane but it flys well even at 4lbs with larger power systems,the stock set up comes in under 3lbs and was a lot of fun and fast but i wanted something a little faster and wanted to try some things out for fun . If the weather holds up im hoping to get some video this weekend .

The videos ive been posting of my planes lately have lost quite a bit of qaulity on the servers for playback online... They usually start out as 100 mb or so mpegs from a 10+ year old camcorder and i compress them quite a bit for easy playback and smaller size to about 25 meg wmv format. Ofcourse the qaulity online isnt as good as the original video (i need a new camcorder) but the qaulity isnt that bad from the start... Definately not HD but its all i have for now!

Been flying AP with the ebt when ive had time and havent flown the extra in a couple weeks,it was fun to get some time to fly and have fun sunday and i had a camera person to catch all the flying instead of just a roof cam. It was fun ringing the shp out on a nice day .

I got a really good deal on this one and it shoots 30 minutes of very nice video..(the server doesnt do it justice). The winds were high and these were the first flights. Ofcourse i used the EBT to carry it.. The cameras on the heavy side at 5 ounces but no problem... The EBT lugged the new camera and my AP camera for a total of 7 ounces of AP and Video gear... It flew fine .

The Aspera is not only a quick high speed plane but also flys well in high wind for AP on very windy days. Some pics from todays flights .

Ive been flying for two years now and started 3D last year twards winter. Something thats made 3D a lot easier is good flying planes and my first was the yak 54 by 3DHobbyShop.com and ive owned a few more after it and they all have been good flyers and well designed.. looking forward to the new Velox Revolution thats coming out to and eventually getting one of there 55'' 3D planes as well. Im not far from the ''windy city'' and theres a lot of talk in the forums about not flying etc because of the wind,ive had to get use to trees bending and in bad conditions the planes blowing around before take off . Im fairly use to wind now and its much easier to fly in with the mid sized electrics i own now,especially the aspera.. cuts through high wind like a hot knife through butter and its fast to .

Ive had my aspera a couple weeks now and finally had time to maiden it this weekend.. i even got to fly two days in a row .. (very rare). Heres some pics and video.. the video has onboard and camcorder footage. The aspera really helps build faster reflexes.. I flew the extra 300 shp later and it was so relaxing to play around low with it after flying 80+mph around the field with the aspera(good ''cross training'' for 3D for me)

Had to cycle my new 4s pack today and took the 3DHobbyShop 53'' Trainer with since im still setting up the extra shp for 4s. The extra will be even more fun with the torque 2814/820 motor and 4s,flew the 2818/900 in the trainer with a 12x6e.. Niceeeeee Vertical and acceleration . The Trex is good as new again and i painted some of the parts to match the canopy i had on the day it went in,upgraded to the new machined gearset to .

This plane flys so good and its so much fun. It was a nice day out and even the wind took a break a little . All was not well in the corn field though,along with the summer heat the summer BUGS or ''Terminators'' as i call them because they can be so unrelenting in there quest to make me crash planes and helis were out .. think im gonna get a bee keepers suit soon before i lose more of my birds. There not that bad but it does get rough trying to fly and swat bugs at the same time .

Had my first crash with the trex,been flying it off and on now almost a year probally. It was a nice day for flying and i havent been flying much so i was having fun when it went in . Funny thing is i just sprayed a new canopy for it and put the old tail fins back on to match new canopy .
