Hi,

I'm looking for a 71" electric Slick within a resonable distance of Cincinnati, Ohio. I'll be in Dayton for the Dayton Wingmasters Midwest Modelrama swap meet this Saturday.

Mike

Gonna go fly the 57 SC, since the F-22 is STILL down......

Got the motor installed and it looks like that $15 HW 40A ESC is a reject, refurb or second. No wonder the power was not what I expected on the stock motor with the 40A ESC upgrade.... It was Surging on under load.

Check out this vid. I couldn't even set the Throttle Range or do any Programming on it when it was connected to the Wicked 6000. Getting a Throttle Range error when hooked up to the Wicked motor. Seems like the throttle is hosed on the ESC. Had to rig the old motor back on the over sized bullets to get into Program and put timing to Low as recommended for the new motor.

When throttling up hard or at full throttle, the ESC speed is all over the place, surging bad. This is ALL at FULL Throttle.

Wicked 6000KV on Defective HW 40A 2-9-13 (0 min 32 sec)

Went to fly at JVS, parking lot packed, no signs up about what was going on...

Had a notion to head back home, but no, had to go across the road and fly at the church parking lot. BBall game there, but the flying half was clear.

Took off into hover, backed it up to myself, flew back out away to setup a tail slide and no idea what was going on, (me) but it started rocking around and fell over to the left. Had to hit the gas, almost pancaked it at a 45 angle.

Had an uneventful flight after that until landing. Was coming in good and then got a little crosswind drift in on me and had to correct. It was pitching more than normal too. Got it straight but dropped it a little hard and then had to swerve to miss a big storm grate. It stood on the nose and ate a new Xoar 15x7 off.... Also this was the first flight with a new GP Spinner.

Real nice, 3rd flight on the rebuilt motor, new prop and spinner and I screw up the landing and prop strike with idle up power on... Today was just not my day, hosed up from the beginning... Shoulda listened to the voices to just turn around and go home...

Wow, twice the price of a PJN!


EDF problems with the ESC, 57 SC flew average, landed bad....

Came home and after pizza repaired the Nano with a new CF solid tailboom. Had to splice that hair thin wire stolen off another damaged boom, swap tailmotors. Ugly but it works. Now is has other issues, now that the tail is solid it showed up. Major shuddering under Idle Up mode. Either Main Shaft or bent Feathering Shaft. Need a teardown and inspection on the top.
