There is an older Killer Whale in there.
remember that old wood?

I like to use a 3 wood to tee off.
Its more controllable for me and I can hit it better than a driver for some reason.

If anyone ever sees any KUNAN drivers in some golf shops used driver bin, CALL ME!!

Anyways..wind or no wind..I'm off to Cascade to fly the aeroworks. Hopefully it won't be pushed around too much by the wind.
That 3W 106iB2 is a strong engine. First flight with the replacement to the DLE-111

Marymoor is fine for up to 100cc and I'll fly the lumberworks there when I get the headers for the 3W engine, but for now, its way too loud on the stock mufflers to fly there.

Plus I'll be there flying the 50cc raven throughout the summer so I can hang with the fella's.

Looking forward to those days I tell ya.
packing up after the sun has gone down, swatting the mosquitos, etc.
would it were summer already!!

you've seen cascade's open sky and seriously long runway.
Its perfectly suited for giant scale flight.

Got two flights on the aeroworks at cascade.
Wind was not a factor.
The rain kept me from flying more.

Those two flights were while it was raining. Deanna and I stood under a tree so the radio wouldn't get wet.
field was empty.

Yeah, not saying cascade isn't nice. I had a good time flying there.

When you getting headers for the 3W?

when I get around to calling Gerhard at AI or Cactus Aviation to confirm with either of them of the proper header for my engine and plane.
They are only $45 each which is a very reasonable price.

call me stubborn. and it wouldn't surprise me if I've been wrong all this time.
All I know is the practical applications that I have used, versus the theoretical.

Here's a chart from the ICE100 in my Funtana running a Scorpion 4035-330 and an 18 x 8 on 8S. Continuous full throttle is rare for most of us, generally less than 5 - 10% of what we do in 3D unless the airframe is underpowered (against my religion). My Funtana AUW is right at 10Lbs and vertical is not a problem with 2600+ watts available.

There's also a build log I did on this plane here if you are interested in an alternative to dual rear mounted servos.

This is the first 60mm motor I've seen that's KV'd for 6 cells. Do any of you guys know of others?

Besides the number of magnets, can somebody explain to me the performance differences between a 24 pole or 10 or 14 pole motors? I assumed it was a speed vs.torque thing but is there more to it then that?

Ooooohh.... Me likey!
That motor on paper matches the exact size, weight, and KV goodness that the 71" Slick needs.
Hacker A60-6XS, I'll remember that one...

BTW, My flying Mario flys. WooHoo!

Also, I'm in a bit of a time pinch and forgot to order myself a XOAR 19x10E prop.
I need it for the upcoming fly-in next weekend, although it may be cancelled due to weather.
Does anyone have one the would be willing to sell?

Thanks,
-Chris
