I got some FDR data from the Slow Stick. I think I'm going to have to get another more powerful motor (this will be the fourth in the life of the airplane). Top speed in level flight averages about 25 mph. I think that 50 MPH would be a better top speed for data gathering, but I don't know how fast I can make the Stick without also making it so heavy It isn't capable of reasonable slow flight.

If anyone is interested in the early raw data, let me know, and I'll zip it up, and post it.

Testing is on hold for now. I need to find a new motor, and a new receiver. I stole the 2.4 receiver from the Slow Stick to put in my new Spitfire. It was an early birthday present from my wife. I couldn't very well disappoint her, could I?
