That can't be true unless you were overdriving the 2200 battery so much in your tests that you were probably damaging it.

However- he could have drawn the same Amps for a considerably longer time. I suppose it's possible that a temperature the motor can handle for 2-3 minutes would damage it in 5-6.

Good to hear that you replaced the motor in any case!

Tamiya10,

Looking good. Are you going to keept it matte finish or go for a gloss finish.

Which ESC are you going to use?

The thrust tube makes about 10-15mph difference. It is noticable trust me.

Just maiden my A4, all went will. 3 1/2 min flight........
Bloody cold, -12 C and sunny, snow on the ground.......

Took off from the road with ice and flew the A4 around checking all the controls. No rolls or loops.... I did not use the flapperons.

One of the other guys I fly with Stu, brought his A4 and did a flight also.
Stu, is also a engineer with a aircraft company in Canada. Stu bought a used beater GWS A4 and rebuilt it. Damn thing is quik, and has some mods.

Those look like RCLander Pilot busts that have been cut down. I have used them before in other planes. FreeWing makes some decent ones too. The FW ones are a good starting point if you want to detail one to suit your needs. The RCLanders ones are a good drop in with no detailing needed. Here is a pic of a RCL Pilot in one of my old birds.
