Stryker Flight

I took the fleet out to my new spot in Elk Grove, CA today. The wind was a little too much for the F-15 and the HK-450, I got some quick flights on them to show my dad the 450 and get the dust off the F-15. He could not fly his Parkzone Corsair, it gets silly in much less wind than we had today.

The winds today (according to weather.com) are "Wind: From W at 11mph gusting to 18mph", and aside from an iffy take-off throw due to a gusting crosswind, the Stryker once again showed that it cares not about a little bit of wind! The ARC 28-47-2170kv motor absolutley loved the APC 7x5 Sport prop, and I timed the throttle heavy flight to LVC at ~6 minutes for future reference. I typically use more throttle management than this and do several gliding passes so I will leave the timer at 6 and bring it in for landing to save the lipos.

Here is the Hat-Cam video of the proceedings:
