E-Yardbird

As long as someone else has a YB to show off, I might as well brag about my latest mod to my Yardbird that I completed a few months ago: Got another Art Hobby High Aspect E-fuse and stuck a HobbyKing NTM3548-1100 motor in the nose, a HK Plush 60 amp controller, Zippy 2200 mah 3S 20C battery, and a 9/5(?) prop to draw about 35 A. All up weight is about 60 oz. The plane launches pretty good, making it to 200 m in 25 seconds--good enough for our ABQ Rules F5J unlimited class.

My only problem is that on two flights I forgot sometimes to pull the antenna out of my TX, as I've been switching most of my planes over to 2.4--but not this one (yet!!!). Made for some exciting flights--luckily no damage.
