Awesome! Can't wait to see more of the flights. Best I can do today was some indoor action with the 1SQ and some RF6.5 practice.

Great flying as usual Joe. I'm almost afraid to ask, but what kind of flight times are you getting? And what size mAH packs are you dumping into that Hacker Q80 on 12S?

I think we're going to see the silver racing scheme. It will match nicely with my 74

I second that!

Awesome flying Joe. What is the flight time you are getting on the electric?

Forgive a few novice questions here. When you say 4 minutes, what does that include? Throttle up for takeoff to end of taxi on landing? Or is that 4 minutes to the "better land now" timer beep? How much additional time do you have to land in case, say, someone else splatters their plane across the runway at the critical moment. Of course that might not matter, Joe is good enough to land on a postage stamp What's left in the batteries after a typical flight?

It's gonna be a long time before I'm ready for a plane this size, but I am curious.

Joe has a timer on his radio. He has some reserve time figured in for the oh crap situations. He is very methodical in setting up equipment.
