Hi folks: Just a report in today. I managed to get the canopy railings in place, used 1/8" striping tape painted.
I then disassembled the plane and put on a couple of coats of Mpu to help stiffen up the fuselage and seal it for covering. It is drying now.
When that was done, I decided to test the 16/8/3 blade EMP prop to see how it fairs against the MAS and Graupner.
With a battery showing 24.5v resting, the test shows 930watts, 40A at 22.8 volts under load. Not bad at all! A full throttle test for 30 seconds showed no heat in the motor, it was cold to the touch. So 1860 watts total for two shows 124 watts per lb based on the plane weighing 15lbs.
My next step while the table is clear is to weigh the components, my scale only goes to 11 lbs, so separate pcs have to be done. I'll let you know later. Doug B
