I'll grab that pass when I get home.


The ideal distance is .0001 inches

LoL, the closer to the camera the better. Obviously you don't want to hit anyone,'but 10-20 feet is accurate enough.

That's the best way. Should be able to get a more accurate reading.

What was the speed at 1:03 going from right to left? It probably wasn't even half throttle but was the closest to the camera, just out of interest?
that pass was 95-98mph

It definatly needs to be closer to the camera then because that pass was up wind at about half throttle!

Yep you seemed pretty far out from the camera on most passes.

I dont have time to line it up at full speed, if I go further out before my approach it gets hard to see! Ill keep trying though.

Hey richard, try flying directly over your head when doing the passes, it may help you to get a better perspective, but have the camera man stay back about ten paces. That always works for me. But don't crash into yourself.

I'll have to. HobbyPeople have their F-16 on sale for $39.00. Does it have the same potential?

The f-16 is great too, there are alot of upgrades for it. The squall doesn't need any
mods to throw lots of power at it. The f-16 requires some mods to take alot of power.

Depends on what you want to do. You could try your js1400 in the squall, prolly go about 120-130 on 4S.

I've got the $40 f16 kit, which I plan to run in a Hoffman beast on 3S (maybe 4S later), and drop some fpv equiptment on

Ha, I sold my JS1400's. I sold those to buy the ARC motor. I might just do the 4s squall. Do I need servos. It doesn't say. It says it comes with the motor esc and fan.

Next question: Does anyone sell just the airframe?

Yeah, the 4S needs servos three of them.

The 4S will have about 1:1 on your 4S 2200 20c's. The new rotor they released is a little softer than the old one. The morgan mills belly kit would make it so your fan is removeable, incase you want to upgrade later, it'll also strengthen the airframe for landings.
