Cruised around at the highway speed limit on half throttle, probably hit about 95 straight and level , and the landings were very predictable.
Had me happy as a clam (why are clams happy? I dunno...)
Looking forward to more fun flights and.....MORE SPEED! Thinking about trying this setup on 7 or 8s. eCalc predicts these numbers below. If anyone has any thoughts, feel free to chime in, especially on takeoff and landing with the extra battery weight.
7s: 5000mAh, 30C, 12x12: 70A; 1660W; 11700rpm; 133mph pitch speed
8s: 4000mAh, 30C, 11x12: 65A; 1750W; 13300rpm; 152mph pitch speed
Happy flying y'all,
I didn't think you could go above 6S with that motor....
