Despite the motor being in the shop for repairs, this is a really fun bird and a real eye catcher; are you thinking of getting one? It is actually quite acrobatic for a 100"... if you find yourself passing through Atlanta, let me know and you can come check her out.
It looks like you did a carbon plate under the motor mount. What motor and size lipos to balance? I like fast wings but want to make this an pfv. There is a nice Sony that works on low light too. What are your flight times? Atlanta is 5 hours north but not out of the question. There is another fpv event coming up and hopefully I can make it.

It is a great ship, but if I keep it I am going to change over to this setup in the link below. He is going to go for a 2 hour duration attempt with his rig:

That is actually painted wood on top of the wing and under the mount; with an aluminum plate on the bottom. I have slapped a Scorpion 4025-12 on it; swinging a 16x8 prop the vertical is fun, but she flutters at high speeds. 6s 4000-5000mAh 45/90c Nanos.

I think AlanFlorida was putting something together in FLA. FPV and multi-rotor combo event. We may do something at the pecan patch in the fall but it will not be a high profile event.

Going back to the lipo destroyed by field mice pic. Lipos have a faint sweet smell to them, good enough to make any animal think it might taste good. I've seen evidence where full grown dogs have attempted to eat small lipos. (sigh, reported by an rc friend who left his lipos on the table in reach of a dog)

Well there you go --- money smells sort of sweet to me --- at least when it's in my pocket --- smells a little rancid and stale when it's flowing out of the pocket.
