Can you throw in a free can of spam??? That'll really get me motivated to build this TL 60.

Anyone else in close competition with Dan ???

I have my cores on the bench and the wing beds (top and bottom) are cut apart with stuff laying on top for the layout. not much, but seems I'm roughly matching the local pace.

Got back from my trip - making progress on the 60

Going to expirement on the power system. Starting with a HET4W on 4350-4S and a 6.3x4 prop and a 80A CC (had the 80A laying around)

Maybe maiden this weekend if I can get the finishing touches on her.

got all the stuff and even built some ramps but I haven't yet maidened the 50 or tried the bungee due to family stuff over the last month. My oldest graduated high school so we did a lot of prep before the party and now we're doing the touristy stuff with out of town family. They are leaving on monday so I hope to shortly after that.

BTW, what was your AUW on the FS spanker?

thanks. just ordered a FS spanker from CK to line up after the 60 that's on the bench now. I think I remember reading that you used the neu 1110 motor with 1350 3S batts. Is this correct? I'd be curious how you find the performance.

Maiden - TL60

CK - this thing flies awesome

I balanced it at 9.5", had to add 3 oz to get there because I really didn't place the servos up front the way I should have. Used HET4W, with 6.3x4 prop, 4350 4S batt - amp draw was 47A.

One toss and it floated out nice and straight until I got on the throttle and it just took off, ROCK steady. Trimmed it out on the first few laps and opened it up and it had great speed (I think as fast as my 48" on 3W and 3S, which is exactly what I was looking for), still rock solid. After playing awhile took it up and cut throttle and floated it down, took an extra lap around without throttle cause it kept on floating. This thing is about as smooth a ride as you can get - Second flight I used the pizza toss with same success, the thing just wants to fly. Thanks for adding the 60 to your fleet.

Dan
