Roque, did you test each unit individually? Amps,watts? then combined I have a ship that uses 2x50 and its a heavy weight at 42oz. But flies quite respectfully

Thanx D. Yes I did test seperately and together early on ,but have lost sheet. I am going to give batts a fresh charge, and re-do tests. I did try something that did work, ....I unplugged the 3 -11.2v and plugged in 1-14.8 v. She wanted to go then!!

Re-tests done and the build goes on!! Here is the data from tests. On a 11.5v charge each unit pulled 225w and 22.2a individually. Together on a total charge of 11.38v the 3 combined pulled 67a and 672w. A seperate test done w/a14.8v got these results. On a charge of 15.4v the 3 combined pulled 970w and 82a. I am more confident now that,after sculpting and sanding ...she'll be a flier!! Thanx again D for the reminder about positive thinking!!

Was away from bench this weekend..so had to get to it today. I got thrust tubes made , carbon rod for flying stabs cut, servo for stabs set, control horn modified for stabs, spacers cut, center exhaust support designed and temp fitted and exhaust tips made. Should be able to button up the aft fuse by this evening or tomorrow. Then on to the wing and V-tails.

Thanx Stuart. The tubes are 6 plastic spoon holders and the tips are the lids off of Krylon primer with the end cut out.

New addition to build !! Was using the P.O.S. 2.4ghz Dynam 4 ch that came w/the Meteor....until it started moving servos on its own. (will show vid later). When I'd move Elev and release gimbal, the servo wouldn't recenter and would actually start moving . That is impending death! Couldn't even use it to set Elev control .

Will not let me upload vid...sorry. You know the drill though, give up Elev and it goes ..then goes opposite way. NOT GOOD !! New set-up is just fine.

Another day overcoming obstacles !! I got the aft fuse section installed. All 3 exhaust tubes installed,flying Elevs all connected, and rear-end re-worked. I didn't like the boxy way the back looked....so...I cut it off!! With the exhaust tips and back bulkhead I'm using, it looks much more scale, PLUS it gives me a nice place to put my fingers for hand launching.
