Thanks Don! Joe has gotten 96 out of his shark, so the airframe has the ability to go faster. I'm running the motor/ fan/ ESC we discussed by email and 30c 2200 packs that you had recommended for the Evader. You had recommended going with the Wicked rather than the Wicked Plus on this one, do you think it should have been the Wicked Plus after all?

Regarding Spacerunner, it pulls 12.5a and I'm running 20c 910 TP packs, they should be good for the load but who knows. I have some 30c 850 TP packs that I bought to try in it, but when they arrived I was annoyed to find the dimensions are bigger than advertised and they won't fit in the battery compartment

Here is my AMX on 3S 1000 mAh 25C Turnigy cells and 2610 5000kV EDF on 6 blade.

Nano jet 1 (0 min 9 sec)

Nano jet 2 (0 min 12 sec)

Nano jet 3 (0 min 11 sec)


My guess is around 70 mph.

Would like a response on this. I could move the shark's setup over to my HL Sabre and put a new setup on the shark... if it's worthwhile.

What setup is in the other one, I though I was the the 60mm fan and the Wicked4400+ so that has a higher efflux due to the smaller fan size.

Which other one, do you mean Joe's? I don't know what he's running, I think it's a 60mm. I'd rather stick with 64mm because it's an easy drop-in. I don't have any more room in the nose, so 30c 2200's is as big as I can run. Is this the "hottest" setup given that pack?

The Wicked 4000+ will give more rpm and a little more watts than what you have now as the motor is physically larger. The max power I have is the Wicked 4400+ in the AF64 fan which is like 750-800 watts.

Hello.

Could you doppler this little wing for me please? Last time i tried to doppler something i allmost broke my neck with all the trial programms and file types and everything.

Here are the vids of two (hopefully) good passes.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=He-sQmRgPXk
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wyd70OKepKg

Temperature was a bit below 0 C... Lets say 30F.

Thanks


edit: i got a lot of studying to do... But thats boring, thats why i wen't ahead and did some measurements of my own.. Does 48 mph sound about right? I was guessing it was around 50 anyways, so i don't think its much off... But would still like to get a confirmation to see if im doing it right.

Thank you for the info Don! Unfortunately I was flying the shark yesterday evening and had a total loss of all electronics in flight, lost power & servos both (it appears the fan came loose and "flew" forward and unplugged from the ESC). Damage was pretty substantial to the airframe. I'll probably get another, if I do I'll email you about ordering a different setup.
