The re-maiden of my Lancair ES!!!
Came in tonight from a great session with my Lancair ES by Great Planes. I built her nearly two years ago, and flew her only 3x in the fall of 2010. I flew it about 8x last year, and put in a new power system (motor is now a 1120Kv, 335W RC Timer motor).
With a Eflite 30A ESC, the 1120Kv motor and 9x7x3 MAS prop on there, this really zings along! I also upgraded the aileron linkages to Sullivan Clevices and 2-56 threaded rods. MUCH better aileron response, and better overall roll management. She trimmed out in no time, and I did a few fast passes, some general cruising at 45%-55% throttle. I use 2100 mAh 40C Lipos and this consumed about 760mAh of the available ~1600 (75-80% cutoff point) so even with 2-2.5 minutes at near WOT during the several passes, I only used about 50% in the ~9 minute flight. I get just under 22 min max on sedate flying with this system - pretty efficient considering WOT is 295W/9000 RPM for a max flying speed around 60 knots or 115km/h or so!
Pix below... I really like this little rocket! At 33oz. this runs ~140W/lb.!! Pretty sporty.
