Luis. I've done it with regular solder with rosen in the center. As long as you are using the little brass bushings on each end, and make sure the ends are clean- you will be cool.

Earl- I guess size does matter.

It was great flying with eveyone today. After 4 hours of Florida sun I am well done.

Fishdeth,
Do you have a link for the transmitter battery you mentioned today?
BTW, outstanding job on flying the Formosa. You and Carlos did some great aerobatic flying. I found myself watching more than flying. Mine should be flying by next weekend. I've been looking at the new Himax 2815-1400 direct drive to install in the Formosa after seeing Ed's 232 fly. Has anyone else tried it?

I could not find a Himax 2815/1400 in my P-CALC pull down menu. However, the larger the motor the heavier it will be. Larger motor can swing a larger prop but, somehow the HIMAX 2825/2300 can not swing anything larger than a 7 or 8 inch prop without it's efficiency going way down and AMP draw going way up for a 10 X 7 prop.

I know that you would like to go Direct Drive so, why not consider the MEGA 16/15/7 turn and they are selling them at Bob's for a very good price last time I checked. The Himax can be flown most efficiently but, you need a gearbox such as the one show...about 9 minutes of wide open throttle flight duration assuming 3S1P THUNDER POWER 2100mAH, Li-POLYs.

Jim (Fishdeth) took some pic's of our team that showed up at the HOME DEPOT field.

WOW!!!!! WHAT A WONDERFUL FLYING DAY!

I flew my newest SKY RAIDER MACH-II by WORLD MODELS 5 times for an average of 7 minutes. The longest flight was 9 1/2 minutes in that heat! I am thinking that this new TRITON charger by Great Planes is not doing such a good job as the ASTRO FLIGHT 112D

The SKY RAIDER MACH-I (High Wing Sport) model went up 5 times as well.

The GWS FORMOSA went up for two fantastic flights with super knife edge performance.

Just a great day!
Carlos

Mac8,

From the research i have done on that motor, It is a little heavier than the Mega 16/15/7 turn, by about 10grams. It supposedly is a similiar substitute to the Mega 7 turn. The Mega 7-turn being 1300Rpm/Volt is similar to the Himax 1400rpm/volt.
So In order to get some idea of the power you can get out of it, Use P-Calc's Mega 7.

Okay, using APC "E" 8 X 8 prop. for max air speed and in-flight thrust on that MEGA 16/15/7-turn direct dirve you are at 70 MPH airspeed and a whopper of thrust both in-flight and static.

Of course if you build the GWS FORMOSA completely stock I would NOT recommend to fly at that speed

Check it out! (You can get 8X8 props from APC).
