At last Kyo F-16 goes like a jet!

I tried my F-16 on Saturday with my new setup of HP 200-25-4, Minifan and 9 2000 SCRC's and it actually went something like a jet for the first time.I had tried it last week with 8 cells which was better than previously but still not what i wanted.I checked the current draw which was 28A off the charger down to 23A after 1 min which wasn't making a lot of watts.I then tried it on 9 cells which gave me about 33A fresh down to 28-29A.When i flew this it climbed out at 20deg losing no height, there was a small breeze.It really moves now compared to before, i reckon half throttle is giving me as much speed as the standard 8 cell setup. It is also a lot quieter than before. I got about 5 mins of flight not having to use full power all of the time. I think the fan has helped a lot all round.I would like to try 10 Pana 2000 NiMh cells to reduce the weight a bit, the extra cell would hopefully make up for the reduction in voltage compared to the SCRC 2000's.
