Thanks to Kman for redirecting me to this thread. I just got one of these, made a few little performence mods, and have been very impressed. Here is my post from the review thread and some pictures. What a nice plane!

Not to monopolize this thread, but here is a little video I made showing my upgraded Hellcat. I now run the MAS 11x6x3 and like the scale look of it. A true to scale size on the prop would be 12" so this one is close. I think the MAS 10x7x3 is faster and climbs better, but this one is nearly its equal.

My watt meter says this setup pulls 33 amps and 383 watts. I fly for 7 minutes on 2200 batts and come down at 3.83v per cell.

The picture is a screen capture of a video I made. I thought the plane looked almost real in it, like an old colorized war time photo...

Nice video. I just recently got one of these. Have enjoyed it so far.

Is yours stock except for the prop?

I replaced the stock 30 amp ESC with a Hobby King 35 amp ESC because the 35 amp had the EC3 connectors already on it that my batteries use. It gives me a little head room with the better prop. The stock Tower ESC uses a different connector and I didn't want to go through the hassle of soldering. I also have an old Hobby Eagle A3 v1 gyro in it

Nice flying Davy! Don't you love how you can literally park this plane on landing?

I am only drawing 27A with the MAS 10x7x3 prop. You must have better batteries than what I use.
