I need to out line the grey from the blue on the canopy better with a black marker. I also didnt coat the canopy with the poly im not sure if i like it, but i do deffrently like the shap alot more. When i finish this build ill fix the bugs in the plans i made and post them.

Tommaro ill add the airbrake, right now im getting pretty shaky and need to call it a day. Also the pic of the buttom shows how im gonna make a hatch for easy access to all the electronics.

I open up more room in the fuse so i can push the lipo as far back as i can and i think the CG will be easy to achieve.

I want to replace the wire from the ESC with 26 gauge copper magnet wire but can it withstand amps needed?

I used epoxy all over the inside and on the mounting tabs.
I got the rotor cut and motor attached to the ESC but it gets to 25% then cuts power, so im gonna take it to the hobby shop and program it there.
But even at 25% this thing has some power !

Im having some problems the motor gets to around 25% throttle (50% on 2s)and then start acting funny, it sound alot like a race car that reached its rpm limit. My guess the timming is off

I smoked a fet on the cc10amp pheonix esc so thats dead. The hobby store near by has a CC thunderbird 18amp ESC will this work?

The ESC in the video is a hobbyking 30amp blueseries just for testing
P1030905 (0 min 25 sec)

I think i know what i did wrong, i set the CC esc to 24khz and i should of set it to 8khz. I was thinking because the RPM was so high it needed a higher khz.
Next week ill go shoping for a cc 25amp pheonix esc.

This is a 9pole outrunner and around 10turns.
