Got a Maiden flight in late afternoon today before the storms rolled in. 10-14mph switching winds. No problems, but it was super nose heavy. Got to mod the ESC leads to get the 4S 2650 to sit back farther. It's benched until I find some nice 14g red/blk hookup wire. Copper car wire I have is too stiff.
heritageflyer,

Congratulations on your Super Vyper maiden.

I decided to go with lighter batterys on the 47" Osiris, So instead of using my 4s 3200mAh lipo's, I ordered some 4s 2650mAh lipo's. They are supposed to be here Mon, So I'll change the Connectors and hopefully I'll get to maiden either Tues Or Wed if the weather co-operates.

Well, I maidened the 47" Osiris today, and it flew just like my 62". Couple clicks of aileron and El and it was flying dead on. Ran six packs through it and wish I'd had six more, It's a ball to fly. Ke is dead on, no trim needed. To say I'm one happy camper would be an understatement.

It's going to take my wife two weeks to slap the silly grin off of my face.

Thanks for the maiden report and thanks for the earlier photos!

You went thru 6 packs and still wanted more!? I recommend you get a deep cycle battery and take your charger(s) with you to the field. I'm lucky that my field has a deep cycle on site that is charged by solar cells, so I've already got juice, and I just take my two iCharger 106B+ with me. With the Gens Ace packs I can charge up to 5C but usually charge at 3 or 4. With two chargers and 4 Gens Ace packs, I can fly pretty much non stop (well, with a few minutes break between flights to go put batteries on the charger and such).

Really looking forward to getting the Baby O!

KTMRacr, I have a Deep Cycle Battery, But I don't Really need to take it to the field. I charge enough batteries at home to last me for a day's flying session. I usually take three pattern planes and a 3D plane to the field and the appropriate batteries for each plane.

There Is talk about bringing electricity out to our field , then if that happens, I and the other electric flyers wouldn't have to carry as many batteries or lug around a heavy deep cycle battery.

OK, just sayin... My first impression was that you didn't have enough batteries.

Well Guys. I'm ready to maiden this beautiful bird tomorrow. Like a dummy, I broke a ball link connector. Rob from ADC is sending me some spares. (Thanks again Rob.) In the meantime I'll use the old Z bend connector technique. Is there anything I should be ready for? For example, my entry level pylon racer requires alot of right rudder and right aileron on takeoff. Or is it smooth as silk like my 3DHS 41" Edge?
Thanks
Lance

I haven't flown my osiris yet, but pattern planes are typically some of the easiest to take off and land, they fly so straight and smooth. Just go fly it!

A E-flite power 10 would be underpowered for this plane, You should have a motor that's rated for at least 500W and 800 to 950Kv to fly this plane, like it should be flown.

A power 25 on 4 cells would be perfect.

The E-Flite Power 25 weighs 60g more than the recommended motor, and is considerably more powerful. It would require bigger packs, and the total weight ends up quite a bit hieavier.

I've was flying a 47" Vanquish on a 130g, 870kV motor, and it was fine, certainly with 4S packs at the low end of spec'd size and weight. I plan on using this power set-up in my Osiris when it arrives. I like light airplanes.

I think the E-Flite Power 15 is closer the specified motor, but even it is 22g heavier and a bit high on the kV. The Power 10 does look a bit under-powered.

Hi Lance:

The Osiris takes off and lands very easily. It will be airborne is just 20 feet or so, and requires no rudder or aileron input on take off. And it's such a floater that you can comfortably land it with a power off glide and a very slight flair as it sets down. Piece of cake.
