Mines gas. So far so good with the 7985 on elevator. Balances good too. I do balance my props though. I honestly don't think it shakes to bad. Not sure how many flights exactly. Maybe 3.5 gallons worth? Have had the plane flying for a year now.

How many amps does the 295KV motor pull with a 19 X 8? And just to verify it's 8S correct?

Thanks, Greg

Is the Motrofly 295KV a custom wound or is that actually their 280 KV motor?

It was a custom in between the 310 and 280 kv, opt for 19x10 prop. Around 75A on fresh 8s pack.

Does anyone have a spare cowl they would sell? Either color. I have two that need replaced and 3D HS is out of both.

Awesome vid and only 2 days of travel to retrieve it should it become lodged in a tree a couple thousand feet below yours ;-)

Nice!!

Nice Matt....I fly FPV so I fly that kind of area often.....where if something goes wrong youll most likely not get your plane back....totally worth it to get that king of video. Put a gopro on that thing and get some aerial vid.

Here is a recent FPV flight of mine in a scenic area...I went out a mile or so.

Ild love to fly the spot you were at!
