Hmmmm, flight went just as per normal and expected. But it was FAST!
Faster than I remember. And much more wind noise/whistling to it. All in all it sounded better than ever, and seemed to fly faster than ever.
I totally forgot I had my GPS logger with me, or I could have thrown that in for some tests. DOH.
I think the sanding off all the mould release marks (those mutli-spiked mini foam circles), and the much smoother painted finish now, might have added up to having less drag - to some notable degree. Plus maybe altered the sound of the air over, and through, it.
If I get to take it out again tomorrow I will GPS it. It seemed a lot faster... possibly towards 20kph faster. At least an amount that stood out as notable.

The way it went I don't need to change up the fan system! 5S is a nice 'mid' power setup and I have 5 batteries for it, so it is fine to stick with that for now.
The second Meteor can get the upgraded power system instead.....
