Thanks to SD One for being my camera man.
good flying, I see you are using the 4315-714. seeing how much power that has I can not weight until spring and I can try out mine on my 57 extra. Were you at full throttle in that video in the KE pass? or is the motor really that powerful.

same temp here, only other thing I could think of is a servo Pot could be going bad and it is not centering. I have done this a few times with my foamies dragging the control surfaces on the ground and beating them up.

Nope. That was not full throttle.

The best part about the setup is that the motor does not get hot one bit. I have barely been able to get it warm.

Cale, what exactly is the plane doing? Bad isn't a big enough description to help with.

Well, this video isn't near as wild as Wamsy's, but I did get to fly my 6HV for the first time today. Just flying it granny-style until I am more confident everything is gonna be kosher.

WOW, I do not think I will be lacking power at all. What prop are you running a 15x7 or a 15x8? I am unsure what prop I want to get for the 4315-714 for my extra. At $12 a prop I do not want to buy several props I do not want.

What's up with ADC Hobbystore? Seems like they're out of all 3DHS planes, while 3DHS got some half-assed freight forwarding service on their website for International customers. This would really REALLY be a shame as Rob's USPS rates were excellent (just wish he could ship bigger than 60", not his fault though). Freight forwarders are not a viable option for airplane shipping, usually.

I wish 3DHS would stop treating International customers as second rate, and find us a decent solution. Right now I got 3 airframes which I love dearly and I fear for not having where to buy spares or replacements should I break something.

Please. 3DHS, make the thing with ADC work again or start doing direct USPS shipments like ADC did.

it flew like a turd. it didnt want to fly. harriers and harrier rolls were funky. usually when i fly in the front yard(thats where i flew today) i start my landing aproach about half way to the right and cut the throttle to about 1/4. the plane usually nicely glides it and i land it. today however i cut the throttle to about 1/4 and if dropped like a brick. jest dropped. harriers(rolls too) were like almost full throttle. just weird.
