Stock motor and still going strong. I'd guess 25 or more flights. With 4 S I can do most maneuvers at 1/2 to 2/3 throttle. It's so much nicer to have that reserve power. Rudder mod was the best thing I did to this one. I could have made the servo (I call it R2D2!) a little less conspicuous but it only took an hour to do, works great.
I'm sorry that was the F18. The Stinger is stock also and only about a dozen or so flights. Same thrust though, most at 1/2 to 2/3 with plenty of vertical punch when needed. That roll rate on a high speed pass with max rates is pretty impressive! I'm guessing I'm getting 90+/- mph.
