Parkmaster 3d weight

Finally finished my Parkmaster 3d as my first electric foamie. It came in at about 18.906oz (536g). That seems a little on the heavy side. Is it going to be a problem? I'm using the headsup hobby recommended setup.

You will be fine on the weight. Numbers you see on websites are optimistic. Of course it could be lighter with different components. I've had 5 and all near 19 ounces. Happy landings!

At that weight it will never fly, send it to me for proper disposal. I know with all that weight
the shipping will be terrible, but I am willing to pay it to protect the environment.

Not worth the trouble. I'll just trash it and start over . I'll let you know if I ever get it off the ground. I'm still messing with the controller settings and decals. Had to take a break to fix my lawnmower

Typically the PM comes in somewhere around 20oz, so at that weight you're going to do stellar!

At 230 watts per pound, mine ALWAYS get off the ground. My double snap-roll on takeoff is really ballistic! Wouldn't it be a real DRAG if we were all the same?

I ran mine with the 10x4.7 and 11.x.5.5 prop. The 10x4.7 came in at 201.4 watts and the 11x5.5 came in at 200.6 watts. Both were right around 17amps but the 11x5.5 was a little under the 10x4.7. All tests were at full throttle. Which would be best to use?

I would run the ten inch. More power than you will ever need and the ten will respond a bit
quicker. I have the 11X5.5 and never tried anything else.

Slo-fly and E props look different and perform different. Use the one that suits your style. Why not give them both a try ? I use the meter and narrow my choices down and then test drive them at the field. Meter is a handy tool, for me performance is the last answer.

I used a 10 x 4.7 slow flyer prop on my Parkmaster for 3d flying. The 11 x 5.5 apc will likely give you a little more speed and punch out from a hover but the 10 x 4.7 performed nicely with this plane.

The Parkmaster could actually perform a knife edge square loop. The guys at the field thought that maneuver was pretty cool.

I found that the actual plane flies better than the sim version. It flies decent in the sim but I felt it was a little more stable and capable in the real world.
