So did you change motor & ESC? Earlier you showed a PJS motor and Hyperion ESC. Any problems from either setup?

And most important, have you flown it yet?

Very nice looking bird!

Are you using a gearbox with the Mega or direct drive. The reason I'm asking is that I'm building a glider and have a 22-30-3 which I would like to use but it seems that I would have to include a gearbox (planetary) .
If It's possible to use this motor direct drive then it's worth a try.
cheers

The Mega 20/30/3 without a gearbox wanted to pull the High Aspect right out of my hands pointing straight up....that with a 13x8 prop and a Turnigy 2650mAh 3S 30C Lipo Pack.The battery is about 9oz...so 66oz wanted to go straight up
