FW190 maiden today

The day arrived to maiden my Dynam FW190. The weather was great at RSA (Rancho San Antonio). We had clear skies, mid 70's and light to moderate winds. My reliable test pilot, Tsukai (Tengarang) again maidened my warbird. Another excellent job by Tsukai. We were able to meet Karltrek from Santa Cruz as he brought numerous planes to fly. You can see his FW190 in some of the pics.

It was great meeting you Bob and Tsukai (Tengarang). Here is a pic of the flight line. I can't believe I got 4 planes in my car. But I did it! perfect day for flying.

borntoolate,
YW. It's an easy mod to do that really increases airflow past the motor and through the fuse. I also drilled 2 holes directly in front of the battery compartment to draw air across the battery and inserted 2 plastic tubes through the foam (SEE POST 1372).

what are you guys getting for flight times running a 2200mah 4s lipo vs a 3000/33000? is the 3000 the biggest size lipo you can fit without having to cut away at anything?
