Was it the fact that the specifications at the end of the first video were calling for a 220mah battery?

P.S.: No video so far showing some KEs... Please, include some in next one. This video is all about harriers and hover, but I would like to see how good this airplane is at KE...

P.P.S: I absolutely love the insert/PIP with the transmitter view!

RG,

Had to check-in & see what's up. I'm more of a balsa guy at this scale, but I'm interested in seeing how the VA performs in higher winds, and I'm interested in how the system behaves across a wide speed envelope in a 50"-class plane with large control surfaces. Given than the Beast 3D laughs at 25 MPH winds, this bird aught to laugh at 35+ MPH winds. If so, I may put an AR635 in my 48" PA Extra 260. At 9 oz/sq ft & 32 oz AUW with a 3s 2200, it's not much fun in turbulence or even light gusts, but 240W/pound & 10-15 minute flights on a 3s 2200 is nice. Seems like a great candidate for a stab/aug system.

Chuck,

Looking forward to your flight-test!

Joel

Wind speed must be measured different where I am from lol. When US Airnet says its 25 mph, flying anything is the last thing on my mind.

Nope, he is not kidding or exaggerating, check out some vids on his YouTube page to see him flying in some awesome winds.

Actually, I have flown my Sbach 3D and Beast 3D in some serious wind, 1/2 throttle and it flys backwards, and it was a ton of fun. My MAIDEN with the Sbach was in such conditions. Stationary snap rolls, followed by a hover landing. TOO FUN.

The AS3X tech is absolutely amazing.

A second to this motion - You just won't ever find anyone at the flying field in our neck of the woods when wind is 25 mph. 10-15 is about all I consider for enjoying rc flying, but I'm far from expert. I have on occasion went out and played in 20 mph, but it wasn't really fun for very long.

Nope. With my full-scale aviation experience, and my experience as a trained weather-spotter and SKYWARN member, I am very familiar with measuring & estimating wind-speeds. As Marlin mentioned - check out some of my Beast 3D clips. I often fly it in winds that are four times the plane's stall-speed.

On the other hand - I get a big kick out of wind-surfing! Been doing it for decades. It's great for keeping my reflexes sharp. I used to fly my 40-size glow-powered trainer in winds strong enough to fly backwards across the field. Where I come from, you won't get much stick-time if you shy away from flying on breezy days. During my first season of flying RC back in '84, I made a decision to practice flying on windy days & working on my crosswind landings so that I wouldn't be grounded when the wind comes up.

Looking back, I am very glad that I took the time to get comfortable flying in higher winds during my first season.

About wind:

Most of us fly for the adrenaline rush we get out of it. Personally, I hate flying in anything over 10mph. But for some, flying in high wind simply give them the same adrenaline rush (while simply trying to fly straight) that we get when we push our "3D skills" in no wind. End result is the same, adrenaline wise and they do get more flight time/windows. But as I said, having to rush to pick up your airplane after landing so it doesn't get blown away is not worth it for me. I prefer to wait for better days, and bring tons of batteries.

The livery isn't the greatest but I love the flowing lines of this plane.

It's gorgeous imho.

Nice work HH and QQ!

Please release a version without battery and charger!

RG,

You nailed it. I simply get a kick out of flying in high winds. I often find myself laughing out loud during the flights, and I'm usually still chuckling on my way back to the pits. Oh - and I often have to keep some power on & fly the plane on the ground as I walk over to pick it up.

Some aspects of wind-surfing RC planes remind me of racing catamarans back when I was a high-school kid. I'd love to try DSS!!

Dave, is there any chance they will be bringing out a copy of the Visionaire for Phoenix Flight sim?

I suspect that AS3X isn't something that can be modeled very well in the simulator. I've noticed that none of the HH AS3X planes are in Phoenix. (Actually, I think none of the HH micro and ultra micro planes are in Phoenix whether they're AS3X or not.)

But since the AS3X can be turned on and off on the VisionAire and it's larger than a micro, maybe a non-stabilized version could end up in Phoenix?

I'd love to see the Edge 540QQ in there, too.
