Might want to see this thread if you have any good crash footage to share from other planes.

As long as they are all your videos, I don't see why not.

Quote from the beta tester:

Heard so many guys asked about the 4S battery, here is the basic testing I had,
Previously Finwing testing is based on 3S battery, propeller is 9050 3Blade and EP9060 3Blade.
Testing shown that 9060 3Blade is a good choice. All testing data can be available on Finwinghobby website. No more talks here.

Here below is the testing device today, with 3S and 4S battery Motor is M2815 ESC60A/SBEC.
Propeller 9050 3Blade and APC 9060. (EP9060 is not suitable)

Static thrust testing:
9050 3Blade with 4S battery, the maximum thrust is 1.85kg. But it sounds “stridulating” I don’t know how to says, just a little bit unusual and not so mild like 3S battery. The second testing is APC 9060 with 4S battery, it founds no any abnormal voice, and the thrust is up to 2.1kg, (amazing) so strong.
Above testing is based on 4S battery( almost full, 16.0-14.4V, 30C)

In order to have a complete comparison, I tested it with 3S battery again( 12.0-12.3V 30C)
9050 3 Blade, Maximum thrust is 1.8kg ( result may subject to change because of different battery)
APC 9060, Maximum thrust is 1.5kg.

Basically this testing is almost the same with my analysis in theory. I think 9050 3Blade tends to be suitable to fly with 3S battery. And APC 9060 is more suitable to fly with 4S battery.

There are other real flight testing feedbacks told me that APC 9070(Or 9060) is quite good with 3S battery on M2815
Of course above is just my personal testing for your guys reference, I think if I have time I will to fly with 4S battery, and more practice should be proved by your real flight in future.

Wow,

4S battery Motor is M2815 ESC60A/SBEC and APCe 9x6 prop
(thrust is up to 2.1kg) has more thrust then my

Scorpion 3014-1040kv V2 motor on same power setup as above....
(1.8kg of thrust).

that stock M2815 motor must be great quality motor

A: None in the elevator, I suggest adding one. I did, 2 in the main wings and those are great, I've not needed any extra reinforcing from stock and I'm a reinforcing guy. Every plane for FPV before this I've added to but they have a strong wing here.
Dave,

I know there is no reinforcement in the elevator. When you add one, do you mean to add it on the actual control surface or on the static surface? Tube or flat carbon?

I added flat carbon to the main surface of the stabilizer. The models on their way over are supposed to have a similar upgrade already built in.

.... if one was to buy the Kit, will it already have a "universal" motor mount for our OutRunner motors? (ie....Scorpion 3014, Hacker A30, etc.....)

I ordered the M2815 ESC60A/SBEC kit and plan on using a 3S 5800 with the stock setup. What 2 blade would be good?
Thank!

All in all, is the Penguin a "better" choice then the SkyWalker?

(I saw vids of the SkyWalker cruising at 22mph for 6 miles, its probably the most boring flight ever)

Will this plane be fast and slow (for cruising)?/ Mix Flying styles is what I'm after!

, seems like that SkyWalker is just for relaxed long distance (boring) cruising....

Make me wanna buy this Penguin

Sounds like you need a Zypher or a Funjet Ultra!
