Even if you match up your rpms, I think that with a higher kv motor you will lose some torque.Also, If the motor is rated for 7.4 volts, make sure the batteries are 7.4 volts.

A123 Li-ion's are even 6.6v - so i'm wondering myself - where the extra energy comes from
maybe because batteries give more Amps - and 30A ESC uses more.

I just about had a stroke watching three little boys chasing that airplane around. LOL. I'm getting too old to be watching videos like that.

I moved my LG just forward of the hatch, with a strip of plywood glued inside to secure to. I could not figure out a good way to attach a tail wheel (even non-steered), so I want to see what he did. I just put on a tail skid.

I can email pics but I can't post any from my iPhone. Right now this is the only Internet device I have. I sold the laptop and my pc crashed. maybe I could email to someone and they could post?

Or I could do a vid and post on yt again.

Oh yea... About the boys chasing the plane around... Lol they know they'll get in trouble if they touch it especially my son. I allow him to touch it when no battery is installed. He is still afraid of the prop, well actually they all are.

My first flight with this bird was an unplanned evening flight. I was just going to taxi er around and enjoy the lights and appearance when I got the sudden urge to take er up. I had left the wing struts off to ensure I wouldn't attempt to fly but the calm evening air was too inviting. I did a quick surface movement test and cleared for traffic (car traffic, using a smooth road to t/o and land) powered er up and away she went. As she climbed I thought..."wow, pretty". Then she drifted a little to the left so I corrected w a little right aileron. Then she drifted more to the left so I imputed a bit more aileron. To find out the aileron channel was reversed. Being familiar with this failure by practicing random failures on the sim I quickly had to switch it around in my head. But that decision came too late as the left wing caught a power line. The aircraft spun as if it were a leaf falling in place into a sharp updraft then plummeted to a full on nose dive shattering the windshield and separating the fuse aft of the firewall and fwd of the wing supports.

I picked the grass for quite a while collecting pieces of windshield and replaying the scenario in my head. Then I rebuilt er and said she's been broken so now I don't have to sweat the small scratches and dings

I don't worry about how mine looks since I had the ESC burn up. The cowl still smells and is scorched, but it sure flys great. You really can't tell there is anything wrong with it at 50 ft up and 50 ft away.LOL

Oh yea. I've nosed er in several times since then and I guess my repair was good cause it doesn't show but only the first damage. I did reinforce the firewall and designed a better energy transfer structure.
