Nice Peter!

My prop took a bit of time too get going as well. I bet this will be a factor for pylon racing and we may see the pitch/diameter ratio staying at or under 2x because of it. For us sport flyers and general speed freaks though, it's neat when the thing finally kicks in!

I think you're right!

Just got the new battery a couple days ago so I'll get the connectors on today and cycle it a time or two. There's a good chance of flying tomorrow.

BM,
I'm keen to hear more of the THD BullsEye when you're ready. Is the prototype temporarily misplaced in the reeds at East Maitland at the moment?

Hi Sergbell,

If you could provide more information about these blades such as cost, dealer and any performance data you have, I would be pleased to add this information to my summary page: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showp...3&postcount=12

I flew the Cyclone today but the phoenix controller won't run that motor right on 5s. I tried all the settings you can try and it just won't do it. So, I have to find another controller and then I'll get back to it.

How about an ICE so you can post some numbers!

I've got a new ICE Lite 100 in my Summit so should be able to post some data as soon as the weather improves here.

How about you come down to the Illawarra pylon meet this weekend and race your FF + demo the summit? I'm sure the boys would love to see it go.

Got my ICE100 in the post on Friday

Ah BM, I'll have to take a rain check on that offer, but one day, you never know!

Might just wait until I get a proper pylon race in it too.......

I haven't posted any data from my Summit because the ICE logging function hasn't been working so tried to fix it and only caused smoking destruction. Hence the new ICE Lite 100 in it.
