Question: What does pumping the throttle on a KE spin do?

Thanks!!!

It makes a cool sound

The bumping of the throttle actually makes the plane spin tighter and faster. I have this weird thing against holding full throttle in a KE spin. It just bothers me, so I usually just burst the throttle instead.

I thought I was the only one who did that, haha! I'm so used to pulsing the throttle in hover I have this weird habit of pulsing the throttle everywhere in flight, haha!

Great video by the way! I've always wanted a bi-plane and I think this might be my first if it comes to the UK!

I also do this and I it varies the spin rate, you can slow it down and speed it up, looks cool

Anyone know what the wing area of the Byper is? I would like to do some predictive playing around.

Go to post #267, there is a photo there that's a perfect 'plan view' of the wing. You know the span so it is easy enough to scale off all the wing dimensions and work the area out. Both wings seem to be identical so double the area of the top wing to get total area.

I would guess by everything that we've heard (specifically that they are in production), that we should be seeing everything you could possibly want to know in the near future.

So what is the overall thrust of this design? I assumed it was meant to be slow flying precision plane. But Joe's video leaned heavily on the 3D?

Also, wasn't that the Extreme Flight Lazer dipping its tail in the pool at the very end? Where was this vid shot?

.... 3D Hobby Shop. 3D.

And the Hacker A30-12XL this was built around should give you about 800 watts on 4s. I'd guess the plane will be a little over 60 ounces.
