Fastfwd,
GET PSYCHED!!!

I use a range of batteries, depending on what the conditions are and how I want to fly.
3S 3000mAh 45-90C - slope soaring, with just a little motor help.
4S 2200mAh 45-90C - light weight thermalling, low wind
4S 2650mAh 60C - motor gliding. Motor up -> glide down, or a little more mass as the wind comes up for better penetration
2X 2200mAh 45-90C - FPV, out & back, or up to touch the clouds

cheers,
Brian

In the wind like that, I keep it closer to 80mm
82.6789mm according to my calibrated fingers
(~82.5mm) with the 2600 4S

Wing Ballast




I removed the steel wing ballast from my D2500.

As mentioned earlier, the pair weighs in at just slightly over 50 grams.



Was thinking about making them removable using 10x1mm rare earth magnets and plywood.



I could then remove them with a stronger magnetic.

With the additional plywood and magnet, the steel slug still fits recessed slightly.



Anyone think I would ever want to reinstall them?

I got a little chuckle out of this as I have been following this thread for quite some time and there have been several posts in the past regarding the difficulty etc of removing the decals. Seems like people are 50/50 on the decasls, some like em some can't stand them. I'm indifferent and just left them on. But will probably remove them at some point in the future.

Thanks, I'm clear on that, I just thought it was funny that someone got one that was so easy to remove.
