Nice videos of the boats too.
Thanks Paul. Glad to see you're still surfing the forums on occasion. Haven't seen you on here in a bit. The slight crosswind didn't help matters a lot either. The wind was coming from the front and left of the plane so it helped blow it over.
I really thought I had that landing "greased" right up until it touched down and tipped.

That's a Schubler (spelling questionable) DS94. Roughly, 127mm. It's one of those high dollar, German made, all carbon fiber units. It seems to perform well though. It pushes that big turbine airframe with no real issues. I doubt it ws at peak efficeincy today with the packs that were in it. I've been running them in 6s 2p mode in my Q boat for a couple of years now. Today they were run as 12s 1p.
