NONE WHAT SO EVER!!!!!!

Despite all your good work, my motivation to build has just evaporated lately despite the fact that I have everything bar the DUP folders (on order from Dean though!) to build a Voodoo Child Replica Swist.

However your latest video might just do the trick for me though....

Swist F5D (2 min 22 sec)

You never sleep! I loved your Funfighter compressed air launching system too.

I'm off work for a fortnight soon so plan to fly a couple of Summits, remotor my Plasma, fly my X Plane, bolt a Q80-8M into my 27% Gee Bee and get going on my Demon 50 again. Also keen to see Trent to do 210mph with my Parkzone Stryker Q too. Might even have time to start a Swist as well!

Same cheapie HK motor that was in the El Nino, 5S and 4.75x4.75 folder ... Hopefully this might be a good recipe for limited class F5D type racing. Airframes are super cheap ($180)...

Those new Dr mad thrust motors look interesting, HK might have got themselves a decent inrunner.http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...ad_Thrust.html

10mm shaft length. 3mm motor mount, 1 mm space in front and you got yourself only 6mm of shaft/spinner grip. Not enough imho.....

Potentially 9.5mm grip, lots of collets extend below spinner bottom. Will try it and see..

Working on the Reverb... it may get a geared setup.. but more likely an outrunner with folder prop.. Depends how the HK inrunner lasts..

Actually got it together today and ran both my Summits. Unfortunately the BEC in the X Plane appears to have an intermittent connection so it stayed safely on the ground.

Still haven't finished repairing my original chequeboard wing so ran the the starburst wing on both fuselages so I could see how my AJA bladed Leomotion and Koby 90 combo (in the black fuselage) would run.

Let's say I was very happy with the speed and much relieved nothing burnt or broke!
