why do you guys use big motors, like 3530?!
Climb rate, thrust, aerobatics, its a forgiving airframe that will slow down when powered off, off course not that strong so no major pull out from great dives, i think the wings would collapse, but it will whistle by.
Great flight time schumixmd, i have flown the phoenix all winter in cold n wet conditions in strong winds, not thermalling conditions.
I have a 1500mm e-hawk at under 500g that will do better in the middle of the day as summer approaches. You must have a good spot for lift, I envy you.
