Nice vid Andy,

Yeah, mine has nowhere near the performance of yours.
You're right about the heavy and slower motor, I think that one I have is rated at about 890kv so it's just not up to the task. As I said, it was just a scavenged motor that was lying around. Never really designed for the purpose it was put to.

Thanks for the links to the faster motors, I'll give them a look.

The maggies aren't really that stupid, they are surprisingly clever birds most of the year. Its just that in nesting season they all seem to fly around in a red-mist-of-hate the whole time. One moring I had them swooping me before I even got the plane out of the car.

I think they have also been a bit stirred up this year because there seems to be many more parkflyers now than ever before. Thankfully they will settle down again soon as thier chicks start fledging.
