I finally got the modified AXN flying & trimmed up with the new motor NTM HK 2200 motor & 6x5 prop. Pulling around 43 amps static.

It sounds great, fly's like a rocket, today was extremely windy and it flew like it didn't care. It can do unlimited vertical climb.

Make sure you paint the plane with different colors on top and bottom as it disappears very quickly.

Total success. Might need to strength the engine pylon as it is compressing under full acceleration it seems.

Disclaimer, the wings, air-frame, tail, elevators, fin, horizontal stabilizer, ailerons have all been strengthened with carbon rod and the plane laminated with "New Stuff" to handle the additional load.

With the movable services on 100% the AXN is fully aerobatic, turns on a dim. Next change will be to trim the wings for a totally flat wing.
