Hey BJ i had a brainstorm this arvo and I decided to put my 2208 1500kv motor onto the tristinia. I fitted a 9x3.8 slo fly prop to it. Had to put more hot glue around the motor mount to make it secure. Just took it down the park and WOW.

I ran it on a 2s 800mah first and it went extremely well. It was seriously gusty and the slo fly prop was punching through the wind. I tried a 3s 240mah and it did go better but I think its pulling to many amps cause the lipo was very hot. Not sure its a good idea to run 3s on this prop at least.

I jammed a few zippy 180's 2s in it (one at a time) and had the thing dancing in the wind. Must of put like 6 zippys through her. It was allot of fun and its flying more like a 3d plane now. Pretty happy with it and it cost me nothing. I used the techone 18amp esc that came with the motor. CG still seems fine. I need to remake the elevator control rod though.

I think I will sell off some of my planes and get one decent one soon. I would also like to get that micro radjet aka micro ultra jet. It looks so cool and would be a blast i bet.

Anyways hope you all had a good weekend, im having the hair of the dog.

Sounds like you've got your Tristania sorted and are finally having some fun with it.

Whole different ball-game this 3D stuff. A fair few hours on the Sim for this lil black duck, me thinks.

Be interesting to see what yo think of the micro RadJet if you do end up getting one. The full-size one ain't too bad - and about half the price of an Ultra. I still love my Ultra but. Great shape in the sky.

Have to buy a new one soon, as my current one is just about knackered. Can get one for $125 at the LHS down the road. Just swap the running gear over and I'd be flying again

So all this talk about my Stryker got me all horned up, so, despite it having hibernated all winter, I took her up today and now remember why it is the king.

looks pretty cool raz



i got one of these 1/10 rc cars the other day. I swapped out the stock motor for a 3900kv which is almost double the power. I put a 60a esc in it too. Goes like the clappers. Ive been having allot of fun with it. Im using the lipos we use in the boats. A 5000mah 3s hard case lipo which really helps keep this thing on the ground.

I went to a proper rc track today and it was allot of fun. Had a great time jumping over the big jumps. I think i just need some better tyres for it now.

I might list up some of my planes for sale this weekend. Its time for a new flying machine.
