It uses an axi 4120/18 on 5s3700 polyquest battery, phx60, and a 15x10e prop ~1,000 watts, at 59 amps , auw is 5lbs10oz

Looks good Kevin,

I guess you are running 170W per pound. I have the same aircraft and was planning to use a 4120/14 on a 4 or 5S 3700. I only have 4s at the moment, which I really don't think is enough. What duration are you getting on th 5S packs

Cheers

Kris

My ES10 is about the same size as the Groovy 50 and being purpose build electric is quite a bit lighter. Nevertheless it was just a atouch underpowered on 4S. 5S is good with an outrunner on these .40.50 pattern planes particularly when drawing strong uplines or for fast low passes.

Thanks Kris, I am getting 6/8 minute flights depending on wind and throttle use.
It has very strong vertical and throttle response.
