yeah i know what you mean.

the TL40 lite that adam has i've flown and i love the way it flys. bit more floaty and still has great power.

havent flown the fity yet but i've watched adam fly his a couple times and its much different.

i'm ordering a medusa 28-40-2500 for my demon and the HET 4W is goin in my fity.

i want to start my mini demon but i'm soooo unsure of how far to cut the motor in and where to put the spar. i am using a arc motor and i'm' not sure of the batteries. i have 2 910 3s i could parallel but i'm not sure if that would be to heavy. otherwise maybe a couple 800 3s parallel. dunno its an older core and i want to keep some meat under and over the batteries.

i have the mini demon ready for glass.i made a motor mount with a 20mm clam shell bracket. i cut it in the center of the wing fa lade it.i moved the cf rod glued it to the bottom of the motor mount.using 81 mg servos,25 cc esc,1320 tp 3cell lipo.i glassed the bottom so the battery is sitting on the glass about 4 layers just were the battery is.the chloroplast i use the heat gun to get to form. i like the shoe glue and hot glue combination on the lids.shoe glue then tack the corner with the hot glue.i have started the 40 inch demon the bays cut in and i am going to flush mount the servos and ad a servo bracket to remove them with a chloroplast lids for access.

nice john,

hey i ran up my arc motor with a 4.2x4 prop and it drew 16.4 amps at 24,500 rpm static.

finally got to play with my tach.

let me know how the plane balances. i was planing on using lighter gear along the lines of hs55's or gws pico bb. i ran 55's in a funjet and a projeti that adam gave me and i've never stripped one (knock on wood)

but my battery will be different i'd like to use the 2 910's in parallel but i was just looking at weight on hobby lobby and the 1320 is not much heavier then one 910 so i think that route will be abandoned.

910 2.3 oz's
1320 2.99 oz's

so mine would have another 1.6 oz's

Thanks John....

I needed the bright colors my eyes are not as good as they once were
If it was a slowflyer it could be about any color But you can tell it's not a slow wing at all

Got a little more done on the 40" Demon with outrunner motor mount.

I was gone to SEFF wed-sun so didn't work on it at all...
Just a few days And I should be through.

The Bottom will have a big Logo on the black in white. And I will be doing Red on the top with yellow flames...
The small electronics bays are for the RX and speed control on each end. I have a hole cut in the small doors to install an air scoop to keep things cool.
