Hehe, yea, the takeoff was a lil early with stock power......
I can yank mine up like that but have plenty of extra watts to keep it going.
Were is the landing part of your video?

There's the link to the BNF on the first page, thought that was the price for the airframe.

Looks like the airframe cost is 99usd...not bad...

Really a good looking plane

I don't think I was full throttle either which probably didn't help. Hoping to get my 2nd flight in tonight if the weather improves.

The landing video should be on my Video Channel. I'll try and post up the link later. I'm at work at the mo and youtube is blocked.

Well,youy DID land it...just more then once. I doubt mine would bounce like that, More likely I would have bent my gear. Stock they really float nicely but dang its just a tad to slow for me and I like unlimited verticles too much. After you get some pracrice, you should upgrade it and then it will be a whole new jet agian. Joe

Yes, the lower right is the "after" photo of the final repair.

BTW, I was preparing to land and on the final turn when I collided with the Radian so mine just stalled and crashed. The repair was done while waiting for the replacement fuselage which took about 10 days to arrive. The repair was winter entertainment. It still fly it with the repaired fuselage and on a 5S. I used every trick including elapor soup (hot water) to straighten things out. It came out perfect.

80 amp Hobbywing ESC and set it up in the stock motor and Habu so I can run a 5S, 30C 3300.

Watt meter check -- here are the results:
64 amps
1194 watts. This is better with better lipos.

This makes it scoot. Not unlimited vertical but much better.

Thank you Bill....in summers here,its always in 100s plus so we have to be carefull how hot things get.Thats why I like to run the all alloy fans,they double as a huge heatsink for motor.I have melted plastic fan hubs after a season of flying at motor mount.
