With the rudder servo in the tail and battery 3/4 of the way under the motor box. Were you using a prolite 2200 3s pack or a similar weight pack. I was thinking of trying some 1800mah packs. In that case I am guessing the pull/pull would be preferred.

Am I out of my mind for loving to setup pull/pull systems? If I have a choice I'll choose pull/pull any day of the week.

Interesting to see 40" airframes that fly big.

Where's the 3DHS 17" Slick on 1s?

With a lighter setup your going to want to run pull pull.

As far as push pull over pull pull I will take push pull any day. When you can have a direct linkage hooked up to the aircraft there will be no torque being lost via the pull pull cables. I have noticed a huge difference in my large airplanes, with pull pull I use 3 rudder servos with push pull only 2 in the tail. With all that said it all works and just go with what you like. When I get the production model I'll be doing a build and will see what we can come up with for CG and weights. Depending on weather maybe tomorrow I'll get some action shots in the air.

poot have you seen the Raptor GS over in the micro section? Living room 3D

If you watch the videos everything happens so fast though. I ordered one on 2S which should be in next week.

It's an EPP profile with 16.5" wingspan and 28 grams on 1S (won't power my AR6300 rc) and add about 6g more for 2S (WILL power my AR6300)

I'm suspecting, as the videos show, you can hover in the living room but harries would probably be 200mph.

In short it's REALLY cool, but everything is so fast that I believe you're approaching a level of 3D that's very difficult and overall not a lot of fun (outside of hovering or getting it outside on a calm day).

20-30" foamies and 40"'ish balsa jobs seem to be about as small as we can go right now without things being ridiculous?

Action Video would be better.

I'll see what I can do but that might take Tim to do that. Looking at the weather tomorrow doesn't look good at all 28 degrees with 18 MPH winds.

Same weather we have here - and it's snowing. Day before? 65 degrees.

What is the wing area?
Seems it might be heavy. The 49" sukhoi has a larger wing but, weighs the same.

Major, the 49" Sukhoi is a high-40's ounce airframe RTF. The 42" Slick is around 30 oz.

The weight range for both aircraft is in the first post of each of their threads. There's about a pound difference between them.

The 42in slick looks to have a lighter wingloading than the 40in edge. I take it that it will float a little more?

It floats very nicely, but as on all of these aircraft, component choice has a great deal to do with AUW. For me, the basic setup - 72gram motor and TP2100 prolite - is a perfect balance of float and power.

Wow thats one light battery! Mine are about 15grams heavier. As for the motor are you talking about your new omega motor? When will that motor be avalible? I might have to get 2 of them , one for the slick and one to replace the heavy park 480 thats in the edge. (I took another ounce out of the edge and it made a noticable difference, Im sure another oz from the motor will help)
