I've come to really like 4s power, comes in handy on windy NYC days. the only thing I don't like about it is the reduced airflow from the 12x7 on the omega 130. I'm trying out the above motrofly to see if the extra prop diameter and 4s power make for a happy medium.
wow that's gonna be a rocket. can't wait to hear your results

should be usable and able to balance fine with the 130. reduced flight times of course...

I have a 130g Omega and 4S 30C 2200mah packs. This setup is in my Velox and I would say it easily has more power to weight than any airplane I have. It's light on the wing too. I already have the setup so its getting re-used, simple as that.

Well see how this is on the slightly smaller 46" airframe.

WOW! Quite the collection! I am jealous! I have 4 3DHS planes and have been called an addict at my field because I am the only one that flies 3DHS (And are the only planes I bring with me). I am working on converting two fellow pilots that are learning 3D. Give me a little time.

That's a lot of 3dhs planes. I just got my first one a few weeks ago. Some day I might have that many.

Nice list! Are all of them flyable?

I like to buy and sell airplanes, plus a few are in need of repair, so my flyable total is kind of low. But I have OWNED a LOT of 3DHS airplanes.

Its a sickness, but I don't want to be cured!

It’s like the old potato chip commercial “bet you can’t eat just one”. The
3DHS Kool Aid is the same way….

I have a fleet of WMP Flyers beside my 3DHS epp and space is tight.

The only thing that’s not flyable Brill is the Depron since I haven’t finished it yet, just getting into the indoor fly season now. The 103” is about to maiden and the replacement Huck Buck ˝ is on the bench undergoing a Aerosheldon carbon fiber LG modification since I put the Blue one into plane heaven.

I get to order my Red Yak tomorrow afternoon! First new one since the 48 SV this Summer!

First day back to work after a week off with back injury, so this will make it more exciting going in tomorrow.

Finally will have an AJ plane back in the Fleet!

Yaks....about two blocks from my home.... Only five showing, but there is at least one more,Only a couple of which are to my knowledge flyable...The black one on the right is a two seater with tricycle gear as is the one with the red covering on the canopy and the white one... And also an AT-6 showing just above and to the right of the Yaks

And yes, at least one is a Yak 55 (though not in the photo), and the one with the "russian thunder" type scheme is a Yak 54..

I have decided I will buy one of these, I hope they will still be in stock in a couple weeks. I can not get one until then when I get paid, if it Is not still in stock then I will have to weight until the second batch. this plane will go nicely with my 48'' edge, and 47'' extra 300 SHP, and 51'' slick.
