The TopModel A-4 did not fly yet, since I first need a few flights to get into the groove. This I did using my beloved SU-26m of Eflite.
Flights with SU-26m went well and I used the new 3s 2200mAh 45C Graphene packs.
The ESC I need to replace because the voltage under load is much higher then with my other packs! Endless power these new LiPoly packs
Now I use 35amp controller, but I did measure on the ground at full throttle almost 40amps!

We have a very nice flying field.
At the picture you can see a P40 from China Models, P47 from Eflight and the Savex ZLIN-XIII.
At that day we had very nice weather and enjoyed our planes!
Our club has German members and Dutch members and it is just across the border in Germany. We have allot of fun there and everybody enjoys this great hobby
What happens if you fall in love with a plane and it does crash because of a wrong CG....
Well if you are still in love ...you buy a new one ....even if the other one is not that bad demaged.
It happend to me. I saw this plane the first time at espirit models. But I did not like the color setting. By accident I saw it again at the site from Bichler in Germany and the original "Silver" one.
Ooooh boy....it was love at first sight
Using google I found out the original story about this plane...which was even more exciting. The original was from 1937!!!!
Now last weekend I did fly my new one. 3 perfect flights and yeeee what a beauty. At the rc field everybody agrees.. "a piece of art" made by Savex.
It looks great and it flies great.
The new one did get another motor (a bit heavier) and it perfomed superb.
I had bad luck with my other LiPoly pack and did order a new one...also this one goes well and has allot of power
Well, attached the two pictures of last weekend and the original plane.
