F-15 Third flight

Much better day. However, about 40 seconds into the flight, there is a noticeable drop in motor speed. I was carrying a micro data logger and it showed a drop from around 350 watts to 250 watts sustained. The 4s pack was holding at around 14.8 volts. She was still fast and flyable, just not aerobatic. I tested the setup at home with a fresh pack and she held 500+ watts over 60 seconds. Gremlins??? Anyway, I managed to land on the runway this time.

Any Doppler folks out there care to do a speed check?

See the F-15 taxi video also, this is the coolest street racer around!
