I have programmed diff at +12/-6 as recommended.
I'll have it ready in a week or two for some more adrenaline rush. If the repair is unsuccessful I will order a new body...

Ok, so that differential should help. Once you get it up again, I would take it up high and practice tip stalling. Make slow circles and see how the plane reacts. Remember you cannot bank these aircraft at slow speeds like the foamies. Feel it out up high and then you will be good to go.

I will. Thanks for the tip. The nose needs a serious glassing job and that will help CG as well. The motor/esc seems a little too light to get the plane properly balanced with a 5S3000, so I guess my 5S2200 will be used next time.

Well tomorrow I will get to compare.

4S outrunner on a 13x6.5 folder

vs.

4S Inrunner(direct drive) on a 7x7


The watts on the inrunner setup are almost double that of the outrunner.

But I am eager to see the vertical performance of the ourtunner setup.



Gotboosted is repairing my Flash for me, I opted out of that kind of repair

It is nearing completion, I am eager to see it.

I don't know the first thing about fiberglass repair, carbon, ........

Maiden didn't go well

I went for a straight vertical launch. 1.5 seconds in, the folder shot out of the front with motor shaft

I didn't have enough height or airspeed to recover, my elevator was useless.

Although, I hit full elevator and full left aileron to soften the fall which help prevent a lot of damage.


H-stab - not a scratch
Wing - not a scratch
fuse - not a blemish until you get to the goose neck right before the tail. SNAP!!!

Tail is cracked pretty good up towards the elevator.

Now is a good time to learn to glass. This will fly again and soon. I just need to make sure I do it the right way for strength.

I am going to start a help thread in the high performance section. I know a lot of dudes have snapped the fuse in the same place.

Finally this one is flying like it should!
Balances right with a 5S2200 battery - anything bigger or longer it gets too tail heavy with the NEU1115 / KPG 25 combo.

Nice, good to see you are flying it.

How many amps are you pulling on that setup?

What do you think of your setup here? Enough speed and thrust?
