Don, can you please try to pull speeds off the following clip:

http://treswright.vervehosting.com/M...r-12-23-10.MOV

The speed runs don't start until after the 1 minute mark and I announce just before each pass which direction it is. Right-to-left runs were with the wind and will be a bit faster than the left-to-right. Temperature was 46. Sorry about the large file size, this was taken with my phone and it is terrible on video file size.

Thanks!

Ouch! I could tell it was dragging a bit, I guess due to the cold weather on the li-po's. That's slower than I thought though. Thanks Don!!

Those are the most consistent set of passes I have ever seen!

The official speed is 90.5 mph

thanks a ton don!!!!!!! what were the best high's and lows?


i think it has another 5-10mph left in it at sea level like the first flights. still, 6mph increase isnt too bad, just not as much as i thought for a 20mph eflux increase over first flights at sea level.

thanks again for taking the time don!

great!!! thanks don!


56k. not bad means this motor isnt loaded much! i think the kv is around 4000. 4s....so, say 15v loaded. hmm. it is a big heavy motor forsomething this size...but i guess it works...next step would be to try one of your 4800's in it...i think it only weighs another 10g or so....whats another 10g? just keeps adding up.... this motor is accualy bigger than a dons in diameter, just a little shorter. alot of the weight is in the adapter.
