Airfield 800mm AT-6 Texan
This morning at 6:30am, my daughter and I set out to get in the maiden flight of our new Airfield 800mm AT-6 Texan from Nitroplanes. It arrived yesterday and went together in less than 30 minutes, with another 10 minutes devoted to painting all the white plastic parts yellow. I flew two flights with 7.4v 20C 800mAh batteries and was very surprised at the performance on the 2 cell battery. Especially after reading about pilots going to 3 cell packs. Needless to say, it flies just fine on 2S packs with ample power. Rolls and loops are no problem and it cruises beautifully at half power. I added a 1/2 ounce of weight to the inside the cowl to compensate for the smaller 800mAh battery that I used. Several recommended 1000mAh batteries are on the way to solve the added weight issue. I'm not a fan of adding weight to a plane when I can extend flight times with a larger battery.
I'm very pleased with this AT-6 and look to adding a few more of these great little 800mm warbirds to our "Foam Air Force!" They are too much fun and you can get lots of them inside a Honda Civic!

I like your review of this plane
I see it is $59 at Nitroplanes. That is not too shabby at all. So is there an "official" AT-6 800mm thread here on RC groups? I cant seem to find one.
