I don't know if anyone has found a place to buy the little ME-163 yet or not? GP125 and I managed a couple 4S flights on it this afternoon. We used a 4S 1000mAh LiPo on the first flight and it started pulsing early on in the flight. We switched to a 4S 1800mAh on the next flight, thinking maybe the smaller battery just could not keep the power system happy? But it too pulsed early into the flight. So I have a feeling the ESC needs to be upsized a little. There is absolutely no provisions for cooling on this one. We may need to cut a few small NACA style ducts in the nose? I shot video on the second flight and will try to edit a little teaser down. She IS fast on 4S and eerily quiet? GP did a great job keeping this small bullet flying. It sure can test your orientation skills!

Sure, it is just like the others in this series. We flew it on 3S for the maiden.

A little video of the ME-163 on 4S ... the first full throttle pass is the best speed-wise. It is before the ESC begins to pulse. After a few minutes of flight, we think the ESC is overheating. So, next outing we will upsize it. Credits to GP125 for great piloting! And to Chip for videoing the launch!

Cheap 'n' easy hi viz

Picture says it all. One 'coat' covers quite well.

It's a little transparent but should help with 'which way's it going syndrome'
