Impulse 3 D 3rd flight

Well, last night I finally got a real flight in w/out crashing nerves and plane. I reduced the aileron throws at low rate enough to give me good control w/out overreacting. Got in a good, but too short of flight due to club meeting. It flies great! Landings are so smooth,,,first time I greased any plane in this season. Anyway I can't wait until this weekend to put some more flight time on it.
The only real beef I have w/ this plane is the weak aileron control horn attachment.
I use a Model electronics Turbo 10 plus w/ 6:1 box, 10 2400's and Castle Pegasus 35 amp control.
Radio is a Hitec Flash 5X w/ Hs 81 servos and 555 rxcr. Right now I am experimenting w/ props to get the best performance and flight time. See Ya! John Z.

The Impuls 3D really flies more like a sport pattern plane. Soon we will have another wing for it that will optimze at slower flight speeds. Right now I think the Impulse flies like its on rails. A good quality for sport aerobatics.

Hi John

What AUW did you end up with, and what battery pack. Finally what flight times are you achieving?

I'm thinking of getting one of these
