I got my Stryker in the air for the first time since the upgrade. Boy, going straight from a stock F27B to a 2700 Six Series and 3 cell Rhino lipo powered Stryker is a big (and awesome) increase in performance! I love this thing even more now (although I'm not sure I can say the same for my neighbors!)

I am going to put the same motor in my Stryker. What size prop are you using? I was thinking of using a 6x5.5 APC but maybe I had better stick to the 6x4. I think the 6x5.5 might be to much for the motor.

Hat Cam

Well, I picked up the new Sony "Bloggie" Flip-cam because of its unique Rotating Lens feature. I have a nice Sony CX-100 HD Camcorder, but usually dont have anyone to film me flying, so the "Bloggie" was perfect for strapping to a hat and filming myself, in HD! The unit weights 4.5 ounces, and I can use it on a hat and am going to try strapping it to the 450 and Stryker in the future for some on-board HD video.

Here are some pictures of the Hat-Cam and a test video using the Stryker that I built to be used as a flying target next month. The test flights went well, this is test flight number 2.

This well broke-in stryker is working good for me.

medusa 28-40-1700-V2
eflite 30 amp esc
HS-82mg servos
sprektum ar6110e receiver
2-56 pushrods/clevis
valuehobby 2200mah 4S 25C lipo
customRCparts motor mount
stock elevons
stock 4x6 prop or apc 4x6 sport

Switching to a castle ice 50 esc tomorrow when it gets here. Been switching motors between stock and medusa 28-32-2800 and this bigger medusa in the picture. They all work great. I use a 3S lipo with smaller 2800kv medusa. The CG balance is perfect with the stated setup. Those fat brick 2200mah 4S fit with minimal foam trimming.

Thanks! The idea was to make orientation easier, and it works.

Game time!

2x 3s
2x 2s

3000mah 40/50C Turnigy batteries. Should be a significant improvment over the 2200-30C batteries I ran to get to 148.

todays flight

The winds today (according to weather.com) are "Wind: From W at 11mph gusting to 18mph", and aside from an iffy take-off throw due to a gusting crosswind, the Stryker once again showed that it cares not about a little bit of wind!

The ARC 28-47-2170kv motor absolutley loved the APC 7x5 Sport prop

Here is the Hat-Cam video of the proceedings:
