Sorry Kai, I have no such equipment, I'm a full out amateur that flies on feeling (when planes start to catch fire, I land...or crash)

Thanks H!
I should come over and fly with you sometime

I can feel the wall that some guys are talking about, after making the nose heavier it got better (400 gr)

I compare this plane to a....truck (good for carrying stuff around)

I'm also an amateur, but if you do El power rc you should absolutley get a wattsup or alike. Easy to use andt takes a few seconds to check if a new propp or a new Esc is within the systems specs... cheaper in the long run

I did a quick run trough the calculator and the numbers was scary

The Slowflyerpropps are Amp eater's and no good exept for propp hanging and SLOOOOVflying.

I got: Watt on propp- 900
Amp - 120
Efficeny - 62%

I would strongly advice you to pay atention to motor, Esc and batt temp. or/and get a reading on your setup while it's still alive
Or just get a new propp, 10x4 with slim blades.
Don't want to be a killjoy, but i want your setup to survive

Thanks Kai!

I completely understand. I tried several props (like a 10x5 and 9x4) but found the SF prop to be the nicest to fly with. The others needed much more throttle and made "A LOT" more noise.
I normally dont fly full throttle with SF prop, was just a test.

I have some other props lying around, feel free to give more tips!!!

You could get a watts up meter for around $50.00 from HK if they are not available locally ..... it (or equivalent) really is an essential piece of kit .....

This is HK copy of the Wattsup.

Or this one :http://www.hobbycity.com/hobbyking/s...dProduct=10786

Regarding noise from some of your other props, this can come from unbalanse in the prop.

So I just got my plane today...really excited. For some reason I thought it would be bigger than it was. Perhaps the size of the model holding the plane threw me off. Looks big and tough and sturdy though. The magnets on the cockpits are a joke though.

I don't fly FPV stuff although I love watching it. I'm just staring to video stuff with the spy cameras and a flip camera I just got. I also have a pretty lightweight camcorder that captures images and video on SD cards, so the camera will fit on here great. I've never seen so much space to fit an ESC...wow! I'll probably cut a strip out of the bottom to install lights for some night flights as well as some windows on the side for either pics (don't ask) or more lights. I'm going to use good metal gear servos. I also plan on installing landing gear and flaps. The ailerons on this thing are the biggest I've seen yet...huge!.

Most importantly, this thing needs a little custom paint job. The graphics leave much to be desired.

So my question is on the motor set up. I typically overpower my stuff and I'd like some suggestions for this plane. Would a power 15 or power 25 work o/k? I'm not looking for speed as much as pulling power, getting out of trouble if needed.

I love finding these threads on the planes I already have or want, so much great info. Sometimes over my head on the tech side, but I can read.

This may be a great plane for me to finally to a build thread on. We'll see.
