Twister
I have been flying an Astro 010 powered CSD Twister for almost a year now with hundreds of flights on it. It is a great small, fast, sport plane and the Astro power system is well matched to the plane. Here are the specs:
My current power setup is the following: Astro Flight 16 turn 010 brushless motor Castle Creations Phoenix10 ESC 10600AE Sanyo NiCds APC 4.75x4.75 prop Data from The Electric Motor Calculator (PCalc) Current = 7.018 amps Watts Out = 60.85 watts Eff = 73.9 % Pitch Speed = 80.3 mph Full Throttle Duration = 5:08 minutes In real world testing I get over 7 minutes of flight time at full throttle so the average current must be around 5 amps.
