Nice thing for me is that MotionRC is in Illinois here, so I can place an order, and about three days later, I've got what I ordered.

13x6 Xoar scimitar at WOT:

*29.5 amps
*310 watts

2x3s/2200 and 1x3s/1800 this evening in pretty strong breeze/wind. The new prop performed very well and sounds great. Plenty of daylight and kitchen pass was still valid but a buddy had already lawn-darted his Sensei so I didn't want to tempt the same fate. Home to fly another day....

Okay, I'm stupid. What's a "kitchen pass"?

I gave my Albatros a coat of estapol today, it looked so good that I did my spitfire as well.
Have to check the cg again before I fly them. The Albatross had too much control movement so I set it to the specs in the manual.
Maidened my Tiger on Sunday.
Trust me, the videos are worth a look.
REC 0009 (4 min 11 sec)

There's another there on my Youtube channel taken from the front cockpit.
