Video: HZ Champ w/Solo Pro Motor/5043/Hyp 180 - vertical, aerobatics, outside loops.

The P-51 motor I put in the Champ started to die at the indoor-fly last night. Not even an hour of time on the thing, and I even broke it in easy on the 5030. So.....I just swapped it for the SP motor I got from RC. After a couple of flights, brought it back inside to check the RPM @ room temp. As usual, a freshly-charged Hyp 180 cell was used for the test, and natural light was used to prevent erroneous tach readings.

HZ Champ:

SP motor/GWS 5043/Hyp 180
AUW: 47.15g

Static RPM:

30 sec: 6700 RPM
60 sec: 6480 RPM

Flight conditions:

Alt: 910' AMSL
Temp: +16 F
Wind: 0-2 MPH

The flight below used 90 mAh, or 50% of the charge.

EDIT: 5/24/2011:

Here's my first attempt at shooting video of my own plane. I'm flying the Champ low & slow around my side yard & backyard. No HD - just my #3 keychain cam attached to my hat.
