I'm thinking 11 x 4.7 apc slowflyer prop. Will have to dig up watt meter and order one to try. I wonder how or if the counterbalances built into stock prop are critical for vibration reduction??

I replace the elevator servo horn with one that I had in my toolbox, I think it is from a HS65MG.

I ran a 3's 2250 40C and it does give a littler more power (or less sag).

BTW Nice flying!

A stock hs-65mg arm?

And are you talking to me about nice flying? If so, thanks!

Its a stock HS-65 arm with an extension that came with one of my EF or 3dhs planes.

I was talking about Sonofagun's video... But I am sure you fly good too

Not So Good Of A Day..

Went to the Field today and made several more flights with the Visionaire.. Even let a few other experienced 3D pilots fly it to get their views and opinions on it. Everyone of them thought it was a blast to fly and were amazed at what it could and would do.. Then the bad part...... I was flying it and the elevator clevis broke while in mid flight.. Needless to say I didn't have any UP or DOWN control and it decided to go down, it nosedived from about 150 feet in the air straight into the ground.. The prop broke, the spinner was damaged, and the fuselage broke in half just about 5 inches back from the prop. I'm just glad it didn't break while one of the others were flying it because they surely would have felt real bad. Everything else looks good with not even a scuff.. I just ordered a new fuselage, prop, and spinner from Horizon earlier this evening.. Cost was about 50 bucks for the new parts and 12 bucks for UPS Ground shipping. After ordering the parts, I epoxied the fuselage back together and you can barely tell it was ever broke. If this would have been a balsa plane, I would have had a 10 year suppy of toothpicks.. Anyways... just a note to you all that you might want to check your clevises.. The clevis pin that goes through the control horns are very tiny and plastic. They look exactly like the ones on my PZ T-28 and I have never had a problem with those even after approximately 500 flights. I might not ever have another issue with the Visionaire Clevises but I've decided to go ahead and change out all the clevises just to be safe. Gonna go by the Hobby Shop tomorrow to see if they have a 12 x 4E prop by chance. Thats all I need to fly until the new parts get here. Anyone have a suggestion on a different size prop that won't overload the ESC if they don't have the 12 x 4?? The ordered 12 x 4E prop should be here by the end of the week. If I have to substitute another prop size, I'd prefer a slower prop than a faster prop. Thanks

Thanks for the heads up. Mine had a bad aileron servo. In the middle of my 5th flight, the left aileron went nuts. Fortunately I was able to put her down in the tall weeds. No damage. HH is sending me a new servo.

I have to say, I am a bit down on the control linkages on some of these HH planes. They need up the quality on linkages in general and use good nylon. Radian and Statos same to name a few. I mean come on, we talking linkage here.

I definitely would contact HH, explain the issue and they might refund you the cost. The stresses on the linkages for this plane will be much more than a T 28.
