Sorry Sebbe, they are hosted on a NZ server, probably with bad international bandwidth.

Let me reupload them to another place.

EDIT: Done. Uploaded to rcgroups. Should be able to see them now.

Good weekend flying planes!

After watching sykotics X's esc misbehave on 5S, I decided to mod the esc before making smoke escape

We had a 200m long speed trap setup, unfortunatly the weather was poo on saturday so only got a few runs and was still figuring it out!

Managed a 161.91mph pass on 4S ( winning me two bottles of wine ) by essentially doing a landing approach to the first gate, lining up, then hitting the go switch and trying to hold the X resonably low and straight down the strip for 200m. Damn challenging, but very fun! I rekon with practice and good entry speed, 180mph on 4S would be doable.

Video of 2 x X uploading.

kaw1000 - the timing gear wasnt on with the flight in the video, more than one plane at a time would get very confusing for the poor person operating the laptop!

Yuri, I wonder if its the fresh Neu pack thats causing the issues by holding higher voltage? Sykotics esc was not very happy at all on 5S, lots of beeping and loss of brake, smoke didnt seem far away at all

I am still waiting for better weather and some other things to test NEU 2100 5S
batts.Hyperion 35C 2200 5S was my flight batteries before.
I have an old CC-125 with no issues so far and I have heard that newer ones
dont like to work properly.Rumors mostly I think.
Jacko,You have 5S NEU 2100 as well,why dont You wanna try it on Your plane?

Fear of smoke coming out of my CC125 that is on the endangered species list

Mine and sykotics are running exactly the same setups, ill mod mine and then try it.

That orange looks awesome!

Actually it is most popular thread EVER
Correct me if I am wrong.

If You divide number of hits by days ,thread exist,this thread more popular then
Enigma thread /~156 hits per day/ Or even Slipso 400 ,about the same as Enigma or Alex.
X-plane thread hits 235 per day.
Yuri,very proud of it.

You should be proud. I hope to add useful content someday.

Yuri: How many X'es have you built so far?

If you count hits per number of planes in existence...
