I measured when new... still had the stock 12x6.5 prop: Roughly 24 amps WOT static... with a fresh battery... so 300 watts? I soon broke that prop and replaced it with a 12x6 carbon. I haven't measured the newer setup.

I can understand that.

I am thankful to have a wonderfully well behaved D-S... and if there is something I can measure or test for you guys who are experiencing control issues... something you'd like to compare to your own planes... let me know. We have early sunsets here (AZ does not observe DST)... so I generally can't fly on week nights. But requests for bench testing/measurements any time, and test flights on weekends are welcome.

By the way, I know from reading scattered comments... in this thread and elsewhere... that I'm flying much bigger batteries than "normal". I'm fitting 2450 mah in there. It's snug... and I had to cut the foam "stop" out so I could slide them back under the wing... but I love the flight times I get. I set up a throttle timer to count down when my throttle is above 15%... set for 10 minutes. When I land, I have about 25% remaining. That's 10 minutes of throttle-on time... wall clock time is amazing if I decide to just climb and soar.
