Had a OS .32SX with MACS mini pipe on the 47" velox.
The 51" Slick, 57"SC have been the Saito .82 with a APC 15X4W prop running 30% heli fuel.

Well it didn't happen.
Got to the field and the fuel tank I used ended up having a hole in it. It had set on a table for two months with some fuel in it and never leaked. I put fuel in it to fly and it decided that it wanted to leak in a spot that it had from a earlier crash in a different plane. Go figure.
So new tank and will try as soon as I can again.

Yea sorry. The weather here has been crap on my days off which is when I can fly. This weekend looks crappy too.
Hopefully I can get it in the air before too long.

yeah, great conversions. I have a flying buddy who almost always has something like a leaking fuel line, stopper, tank.... the list goes on.

Quick update. I have five flights on it so far and it does great. I did get video but the darn camera is giving us fits on getting it on the comp. I will try and get it up as soon as I can.

I was thinking this would be good for the 100 too. I hope you can get the video up.

Well video is on hold for a bit. Have to get the SD reader on my comp fixed.
To make things worst the camera decided to not work with the USB cord either.

The plane is flown full 3D flying to smooth IMAC style flying. It does just fine with the .82 and has no bad habits. IMO it flies just like the electric set-up just a little slower spool up.
We are still working on the video problem.
