I took a SG-90 with no connector, found a connector with a huge-long wire and put them together.

Blue Wonder 1300kV 2712-12

Please Note: These propeller tests are for this motor ONLY. Even the 1500kV version of this is quite different. Your results may be based off the 1500kV version or even a random motor. The 1500kV version on a 3s can NOT handle a 9x5! I will not accept responsibility for you burning your motors up because you were too lazy to read the title.

8x4 DD : "it's okay; not a lot of thrust but the acceleration if definitely there!"

8x3.8 Slo-Fly: "it's okay; could be better. It does, however, seem to have quite a bit more thrust than the 8x4."

9x5 DD: "very good performance, definitely a lot more thrust than any 8" prop."

10x6 DD trimmed to be 9x6 DD: "out of them all, this is the overall best. Lots and lots of thrust, lots and lots of stability in high alpha when flying against the wind, and it's easier to tell when IT"S broken "
And, besides that; it looks so cool in the sky!

Quotes all by: me. Tests all by: me.

"if you want the best indoor performance with the 1300kV version, go with a 10x6 DD trimmed to be 9x6 DD!"

As you may be able to tell, I love Yaks!

Anyway, the giant Yak-54 is slowly making progress. I haven't been able to make a video since there hasn't been enough interesting stuff to make a video of. But basically, all I need to do is finish cutting out the plywood servo mounts, figure out how I am going to be making the motor mount and make it, and install all the electronics and I'll be pretty much done! All I'll just need to do then is the D/R and maybe even Exponential for the aileron! I'm almost done! Yayayayay!

My Edge 540 is broken beyond repair, so I bought this from my dad.

Ordered a TechOne mini Yak-54 and powering it with the UMX Extra 300 Guts.

I just need to finish my Giant Yak before I can build the Mini one.

Started on a field box and charger. It is made of a wooden toolbox I made 3 years ago in Boy Scouts, and a couple pieces of wood.

Also, any suggestions to help make it do even more things, I would appreciate! (any things you did to YOUR box)
I have a few pics:

It's got a Celectra 1s charger on it right now. that's all, so far. I NEED MORE CHARGERS!
My new Charger/Field Box Project (5 min 50 sec)

The last part is non-happenable, I will NOT be getting a Power supply, or even a 12v battery.
