For those of you that have read the whole thread you will see I have had my falcon about a year and have been flying it on the scorpion DynEmax on 12s 5800 with AUW of around 18lbs. (Struts, brakes, cockpit kit all the extras). It has always performed great and was dopplered around 135 or so. But it's just gotten boring and thou it flew nice it sort of lumbered for my taste. So today 3 flights with the Tam Dynamax conversion with the HET 800 series 685kv on 12s 8000 mah!

Old setup was about 15.5lbs of thrust installed, 115 amps 5000 watts and 25,000rpms. New setup is 19lbs of thrust installed, 135 amps 6000 watts and 27,500rpms.

The new setup adds about a lb and a half so I'm guessing its around 19.5lbs AUW but I need to weigh it to be sure.

This setup is a monster, vertical is ridiculous! We estimated a downwind pass at around 160mph ( this setup has a 225mph efflux). It is like a different jet with this setup. After 4min flights I was at only 3.85 per cell so plenty of extra flight time to be had! The acceleration is unbelievable it is off the ground in 75 feet and you can tilt it almost straight up and it climbs out fast!

On the bench we get 135-140 degrees on the back of the motor after a simulated flight, after the flights today it was only 106-109 degrees ( thou it was in the upper 60's lower 70's outside)

I am definitely no longer bored with the falcon, it is a monster with this setup and very reasonable cost wise for a quality higher powered setup.
Is that 19lbs installed in the AS nacelle with a thrust tube?
