Got a flight in today just before dark as the wind died down right at sunset. CG at 70mm and I backed off on my throws. Launch was flawless and straight away with no dip. Still getting the bugs worked out of this plane so it is difficult to get some good motor numbers as I am still in the trimming out phase.
But here is what I did get from the data logging. At launch which is static except for the wind...got 121amps. Then in flight I hammered the throttle for about four seconds into the wind three times and the amps were between 106 and 108.
The thing that bothered me was the motor temp upon landing was 150F and I wasn't really pushing this motor that hard.
Part of the problem I believe is the fact that in order to get it balanced I had to put the battery behind the motor and I think it is blocking some air...and one of you guys already mentioned that these Typhoon motors like to run hot.
Will get some 6S tests next week weather permitting.
