'built one too; almost ready, will post pictures later

setup:
Hyperion HP-Y12L-5300, GWS 3x2 prop
Turnigy 6 amp ESC
Polyquest 400 mah 2S-lipo's
5 gr HXT-500 servo's

I pranged mine today. Was trying to hand catch it, got goofy on the approach, then tried to go around. But I wound up putting it in on the nose from about 8'. Pretty much all it did was break the nose off at the intakes. A little UHU Creativ and it's almost good as new!

2 more 610 3s packs coming. that makes 4 now! but what the heck am i going ot do with the 2s packs! ..i know..make a 750 4s........ :O :O hmm......
you know, i ran the LS PJ on 4s, with 5.5x4.5 cut down to 4.8" and i had 2 on a GWS A-10. holy crap, that thing had massive power. it was about 450W combined on a tired 2100 4s. 220W per motor is pushing luck on a pj, but they were well cooled, and were fine. i bet you could run this motor on 4s too......hmm.......talk about RPM! my twin pusher A-10 went about 90mph. thats honkin for a GWS A-10! ive been wanting to make a small shumate T-38 for this motor...seems i just came up with a power setup! :O if i ran a 4.5" prop, on 4s, it would be about 200W, and who knows what the rpm would be! :O and light weight too..i could do it at about 10oz maybe.....

I have broken the nose off of 2 of mine, right at the front of the wing, still flew without the nose, looked kinda weird

Zambezi:

i like your substitution for carbon fiber embedded in the wing, looks lighter and easier to do! I may have to give that one a try

Great looking plane!

Looks great ZamBeZi! I didn't know we exported F-22's to Czech.

Good luck on the maiden!

Adam,

Your plane is about 2/3rds (66%) the size of tomhe's original, is that correct?
