Flight Report

Sorry I didn't get video today. I know we all like to see it, my bad, the report is good.

The system pulls a lot of amps so I kept the flights to a 3 min timer, one gear pass and land. This was about right for 5000 mah cells. I have some 3200 cells and 3500s that I can configure into a 10s2p 6400 and a 7000 pack. For longer flights.

The main question was the motor. It performed extremely well. Very smooth. I'll take a closer look at it tomorrow and check the windings.

The speed wasn't too impressive as Bob predicted, the Haoye rotor just doesn't produce the efflux speed needed. I'd say it was doing 120 or so when wound up. But it sounded great and had good thrust.

Blows me away that a $60 fan/motor combo can fly this plane with such authority. Got to go to a party. More later.

The electric boys were very impresses with it.
