26 amps, 25.000 rpm.... in a MicroJet !

Boy, I thought that I was crazy trying to put a Mega 16/15/3 that run the prop at 23000 rpm ! You are more crazy than I am !

Did you ever used full power with this set-up in the MicroJet for more than 1 seconde ?

'Motormike' (Mr Kontronik) flew the same setup as me but with 2 extra cells i.e. 10x1700 AUP - now THAT'S crazy! His required a lump of lead on the back of the Micro Jet to balance it, I dread to think what the AUW was. For sure he didn't solo launch it!

I used to race IC pylon so I'm quite used to quick models. The thing with the Micro Jet is that it seems faster than it really is, because of the small size. I doubt mine was much over 100 mph in a dive.

There's some video here if you're interested:

Taken in light rain and geting dark, bumpy conditions (so all the camera picked up was wind noise, hence the music soundtrack). Adam couldn't follow it on full power so that was nearly all throttled back

I saw your video. Great fun indedd!

Now, my "mega 16/15/3 solution" seems very reasonable while I was still considering it "insaine" yesterday !

So bill, what do you think I should do : Go for a 76 grammes Mega 16/15/3 (with 3 LiPos 2000) or try a lighter motor of the same power (BUT : Does it exists ??? )

Have you tried the Mega 400 ? The Mega 24-3650 ?

thanks and congratulation for the video and the... mastering of this beast

Personally I think the 16/15/3 with 3S Li would be a good powerful setup. In total it would be about 5.5 oz lighter than what I had, which is a big improvement.
