Alrighty! She is all dressed up and ready for the prom!

AUW is 20.5 oz or 690 grams. She came in under the specified weight range on the plan. The CG is just at the spar.

As far as props go. I am going to build a thrust meter and do some more testing. I do know for certain that it will not fly with a 7" prop or I should say, not fly well.

The motor is as stated in the test results post an 880 KV motor. If the battery is fully charged and for simplicity sake I have 12 V this means without a prop the motor RPM will be 10,560. My TT .10 can do closer to 12,000. One of the advantages of outrunner electric motors is their ability to swing a larger prop because of their torque. I am thinking that I would not go any smaller than a 9" prop. Even with the 9" props, some of them will give me a decent flight time of close to 10 minutes (not full throttle.)

Anyway I will update when I get a chance to further test props and fly her.

Thanks

Joe
