Thanks Don! Seems about right for roughly 340 Watts.

I am at ~400 watts and mine is about 90mph but I also have the exit reduced as the stock exit diameter is way too big. Also maybe a deicated doppler pass would not hurt either. By the way have you noticed yours high speed stalls if you pull up too fast?

After my first three or four episodes with stalls, I'm flying it mostly on the wing and not letting it slow down. As soon as I noticed the butt start wiggling from heavy elevator use, I fly it differently.

Doppler if possible Please.

Hi Don,

You may not be able to do these because of the wind noise and the distance from the mic but if possible. It smoked right after the second pass.

Thanks,

jb

Those are in the 93-95 mph range.

Hi Don,

I trimmed a couple inches off the wing and tail and put a 4.75 Sq Apc composite prop on and tried again today, temp was 55 F. If it isn't aleast a couple mph faster than my 91.0 I won't worry about putting up on your speed challenge. I put a little bit of foam over the mic on the fixed camera and I included both recordings, please let me know which one works the best for you.

Thanks,

jb

You seem to be stuck at 90-92 mph :-)

Thanks Don,

when do you expect your HK shipment in? I will change out the GH SMJ with your wicked 3000kv motor. I guess I'll wait for that, and try to get the controls on this one dialed in a little better.

Hi Don,
I have a video of some initial testing of the Small Caliber. These are not the best passes as I am still tweaking settings and tuning the airframe. Just want to find out what she's running. Probably only a couple decent passes.

Is YouTube video or Vimeo preferred, or posting a wmv file in the video section of RCGroups.

Okay,

Here is the video. It was quite windy, hence alot of background noise. I need more practice on making the flight passes. The air temperature was 74 degrees F.
