On the bench at 30-40% it is drawing around 20 amps total.

That had some nice power.
So get some FPV gear in where you can test out the amps. That was my issue with the Twinstar.

I like that. Looked pretty fast and stable. The mid fuse tractor is novel approach. Could we see a walk around video with the dimensions?

What was the tally/total price you spent to make that foam board FPV plane?

Looks soo stable!

just a few questions if you have the answers since you just maiden'd it!
1. flight times (Lipos used? 3s or 4s?)
2. cruise amps
3. Where did you get the foam boards?
4. CoG?

I like these types of planes, the tractor style with prop behind camera is great!
....plus tractor is more powerful and effecient.

I like your plane and its similar to this plane coming out....
