yep, that's me. I don't need to have the fastest wing, but do like decent speed. I do like to build with options in mind. never can tell what will happen.

thanks Adam,

I started out with 3s 3300's in my 40 Slice.....but had to add weight. It balances well with a 3s 3700 with a HET 3w hangn' off the back.

I run the custom on a 5.5 x 4.5 at about 40 to 42 amps on 4s in my 36 demon fat cord...

Use the lowest heat possible just enough to stick it. You need to use an iron, heatguns are more for shrinking. Have fun.

Atom1025 TL 50 Lite build

Atom1025 built me a couple of TL 50's I just got Wednesday and I've been throwing the electronics and stuff on them. The first one I have to fly first, tomorrow, is the TL 50 which is down Rite Lite. The really cool thing about it is the MicroDan motor and mount which is Beautiful I like how Atom made the entry way for the wires.

This little puppy just static'd at 32 amps at 330 watts with a 6X4 prop and TP 3s 2200mah Batt..........Is that pushing this little 1 1/4 oz motor too much

Just had to post a couple of pics for now......will go out and take some of the whole plane. It's hard for me to just snap a few quick shots.....they have to be Rite........Thanks Adam and CK!!

Fly_boy, Atom built the plane and he got a few of the early prototypes of the mount remember. If you IM or e-mail Dan he can let you konw if he has any ready yet. I think he has some ready just not on the web site.

Or that's the jist of what I've gotten from the threads.

320W is nothing for that motor, I run it on the test stand at 450W for near 30min, only shut it down because I was scaring the wife.
