The 3 bladed systems use a 580 kv motor which diminishes flight time by a small amount. I can go for around 8 minutes easy if I'm scale flying, but most of the time I go full out for 6. Honestly I don't notice much of a difference on flight times between the two.

You have both planes and are using a 3600 4s battery?

Anyone use a gopro to get inflight video? I just got a gopro and was curious how others connected it to their plane. Thanks!

Not the most aerodynamic camera choice

I used a Contour Roam on a wing pylon and a belly pylon. (sounds better than camera mount )

I know that it's true, but I still find that amazing. I never got that long from 4000 packs and I also fly scale.
