I went with the recommended Hacker, a 15x7 APC, Ice 100, AR 8000 receiver, and AJ's digi Futaba servos. Even have some brand spankin' new Nano Tech 4S 4000s from HK. The 25-50C batteries are nice and light.

I got out to the field here in Phoenix WAY before the glow P-40 crowd and it was cool n' calm. Did the old hold-the-plane-by-the-wing-tube balance trick and off she went! A few clicks of elev and aileron trim and then a few snaps, blenders, knife edge spins, and a hover proved to me that this is one beautiful flying 3DHS bird. Only Team 3DHS can invent a plane that gives me the confidence to max perform on a maiden. Hehe.

I have just finished charging for this evenings sunset session with my fellow Addicts. Can't wait to fly it again!

Enjoy the photos and thank you Ben, AJ, and Team 3DHS,


P.S. Flew for 7-minutes and landed at 15.0 volts on my 4S battery. A very efficient setup. May prop it up to a Xoar 15x8 for a little more thrust.

(BTW, NeverEnough did a fine job with the build!)
Sweet. Love the sunshine too.
