Finally! Nice work Scott! Looks good! I really like the screw that holds the darn spinner!
It's been so long I'd forgotten the motor you're going to use...

The Hacker X-30 will go to 4 cells. The Master 30 will go to 3 cell. Those are the only 2 30 amp controllers listed on the Hacker USA web site. Hope this helps,
Neal

Ya know this speed run thing would make a great online contest, all you need to enter is a video of the run/runs with a time/date stamp on it to validate the vid and the doppler program Waveosscope to proccess the video to get the speed data.

Cheers,

Eric B.

Still, anyone?

Remember this retard? I think you guys are far and away above the AUW this "monster please" setup was with using the 16/15/x motors. And according to Bruce, unlimited vertical comes much easier than we thought.

Keep it comming guys!

...NOPE!!!!... Not in the F-86 catagory anyway...
Theres 3 "competitions" All Winners will receive NOTHING!
bragging rights and maybe a few oohs and aahs...
ALFA F-86
ALFA MiG
ALFA TA-183(which I think you might already hold the record for!)

Scott,
It would be best to use an external BEC with the CC-45 on 4 or 5 cells if you are running 3+ servos.

Ok,
alfa fan unit
walkura 75mm rotor cut down to 60mm
mega 16/15/3 motor
cc45 esc
park bec
self made rotor adapter
no fan inlet ring
too long wires( will shorten up for instalation and solder all connections)
new TP prolite 1320 batt in 4s( need to cycle and warm up)
now I need to get more batts for 5s
Spec after 10 secs of runn
13.7 volts
20.0 amps
274 watts
37.500 rpm( tested with globee tack set to 3 blades then X by .6 ) reading 62.500rpm
with those numbers I should be able to runn 5s and still not cook any of the equipment.
Hey Justin I need to use your thrust test stand! it takes me too long to make things or i would build one (maybe later)
But it sure put out a lot of wind and has a nice whine!!
Scott

I have a short video how do I load it?
