It sounds like the switch to 2s and the larger prop has gone well Phil. Another ounce is quite some saving. Does the power seem more in keeping with the plane now? I've been told 60 watts/lb for scale flight for these types of plane. If your cruising at 2/3 throttle would be about right now!

Thats a good way to put it, the power being in keeping with the plane. The model flies more scale like on 2S. I'll be using both 2 and 3S though, She pulls a beautiful wide loop on 3S!

An 808 keychain cam was velcroed to the brim of my hat to get this. Not bad, but I can get better at following a model with practice. This cam will be great for onboard video as well.

Superb video Phil. Lovely to see the Albi flying so well.
I'll have to get one of those cameras, the quality is amazing!

Cheap too... 8 bucks and shipping. The memory card was twice the cost of the cam.

Just picked one up on EBay, 9.99 inc 4 gb card and free shipping, what's that about 15 bucks total. Unbelievable.
